1) I have a ďnormalĒ car. Do I need a shop like
Donís Auto Interiors, LLC?
Everybody needs Donís Auto Interiors, LLC. Donís Auto Interiors, LLC
prides itself on being a professional upholstery shop. Each project at
Donís Auto Interiors, LLC is assessed and undertaken based on its
individual need and merit. A simple tear in a commuter car seat base is as
important to our staff as a custom leather interior in a Ď32 street rod.
2) Is my vehicle safe at Donís Auto Interiors, LLC?
We treat all cars like they were our own. The staff at Donís Auto
Interiors, LLC understands the investment, and oftentimes emotional
attachment, a customer can have with their vehicle. The utmost care is
taken to ensure that your vehicle is returned to you in better condition
than when it was dropped off.
3) How did you arrive at the price on my project?
Because Donís Auto Interiors, LLC is able to tailor repairs to your needs,
it is difficult to assign an across-the-board price tag to a particular
job. Except for late model headliner installations (which have standard
pricing) work is figured using a labor/material formula. Because we donít
know what damage or decay can lie underneath the surface, no guaranteed
estimates are ever given. The final total is presented at the time the
vehicle is picked up. But, because we know the importance of sticking to a
budget, should a job appear to be heading out of your preferred budget
range, we will contact you and discuss how you would prefer to proceed.
4) Which material is right for my job?
Stock or custom, repair or full replacement, anything is possible at Donís
Auto Interiors, LLC. When a customer arrives at our facility for an
initial inspection prior to work, several questions are asked to determine
the best route to take. If a customer chooses we will use original
equipment material for the repair. Alternative, aftermarket materials are
also available for use and can be substituted for the original. The
materials carried by Donís Auto Interiors, LLC are made for the upholstery
market and can withstand the use demanded in a vehicle project. Marine
projects are completed using marine grade vinyl (to better withstand the
harsh effects of lake water and sun on vinyl), and vehicles use automotive
grade materials for the best results. The choices and cost of materials is
discussed with the customer during the inspection phase.
5) Will my repair look right?
Yes. The best gauge of a repaired interior is that you donít even remember
it was repaired. Donís Auto Interiors, LLC strives to make every repair
look as stock and factory as possible. The Detroit Color and Material
Matching System are used to determine the exact material originally used
to create your interior. In some instances, original material is either no
longer available or has taken on specialty status and has become cost
prohibitive. Because of our large supplier network, we can usually
substitute an alternative material that will look close to stock in the
6) How long will it take to work on my car?
Repairs are broken into two categories at Donís Auto Interiors, LLC. Daily
repairs are holes, tears, headliners, convertible top replacement, and
general fixer upper jobs to keep a vehicle looking nice and remaining
intact. If your vehicle is having a daily repair done, you can expect the
work to be completed in one to three days. In-depth projects can include
full interior replacements, custom alterations, rebuilding rotted and
decayed seating and interiors on antiques, and creating one-of-a-kind
specialty items for hobby vehicles. The staff at Donís Auto Interiors, LLC
will work with each customer to determine how quickly a job needs to be
completed. Some work is timed to coincide with bodywork, mechanical work,
and show schedules throughout the year. Other work, when told there is no
rush to completion, is put in a ďas time dictatesĒ rotation. An average
interior reconstruction job could take one to three months, so customers
are encouraged to work with Donís Auto Interiors, LLC for scheduling in
winter months, outside of the regular car show schedule.
7) How can I pay for my work?
Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover is accepted at Donís Auto
Interiors, LLC. Shop policy dictates pre-payment for materials being
ordered to complete a project. In addition, this payment secures your spot
on the work schedule. That means a timely repair happens and you can get
back on the road.
