GETTING READY FOR AN ESTIMATE REQUEST
Hello there Joe the Bodyman here.
Good day to you, and thank you for wanting to request a repair estimate for the damage on your vehicle. For your request to meet the requirements we need the following material and information.
Prior to submitting your estimate request, please read the instructions and follow the guide lines bellow.
ABOUT THE PICTURES
- “We only accept recently taken pictures”
- We need 3 clean pictures of the damage. (e.g. by clean we mean, no drawing circles, holding coins, rulers, or finger pointing to damage, this only abstracts the damage visibility.)
- Before taking the pictures please turn on location on your mobile phone. This helps us confirm your pictures are legit and prevents us wasting time writing estimates for people with fake requests.
- We will ignore without reply, any estimate request that does not meet our criteria.
TAKING THE PICTURES
- Pictures taken in high resolution are best, one taken from the left, the other from the right, both taken on a 45 degree angle, and one facing the damage.
- Hold the camera at least 3 to 6 feet away, adjust the distance accordingly. Don't zoom in at the dented damage and make sure the damage is clearly visible on the screen of your device.
- Please note: if the damage is not clearly visible on the pics, we can’t assess it.
PLEASE FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE

I went to Toronto to visit family. While I was there someone hit my car lightly. I searched for a garage, but everything was so bloody expensive. I stumbled upon SOS, he arrived within 20 to 30mins from where I was. He was very nice and informative. After looking at my dent, he gave me an estimate; which was a fair price in comparison to others. I said "go ahead with the repair ", and he started right away. Within 45 minutes he was done, and i drove home. No one realized I was hit!
Thank you so much for your kindness and expertise!
