Although we make every effort to meet the “Target Delivery Date” we propose, it is important to note that the dates proposed are estimated delivery dates. During the course of the repairs it is possible that we uncover additional or hidden damage. This may require additional parts orders and result in additional labor repair time, which would affect the original proposed delivery target date. We will however make every effort not to inconvenience you.
