We are often asked to give a “Ball Park Figure” or estimate on total cost involved to restore the customer’s project. In order to give a fair estimate to the customer as well as KARS Unlimited we must first evaluate the overall expectations of the customer. Secondly we must evaluate the project ourselves to be able to answer the following questions;
How much rust does this project have?
Will we have to disassemble in order to give a better estimate?
How many parts will need to be replaced?
How much time will it take to locate those parts?
How long will it take to fabricate those parts which are unavailable?
What will be the quality level of the parts we receive?
How much time will it take to bring these parts to a higher quality level?
What changes and or modifications does the customer desire?
There are too many unknowns about every project to give a customer an honest estimate of the cost to build. Therefore as with almost all restoration shops, we charge by the hour.
We can give a customer a comprehensive detailed cost plan once the project has been disassembled and the unknowns are answered.
It is our soul desire to provide the customer with the best end result that we can possibly achieve. It is our reputation as an Automotive Restorer to the quality and workmanship of the project long after the money is forgotten.
