For Insurers

Why SMF CC is Los Angeles' Most Progressive Repairer

The key to our business is working closely with our insurance partners to deliver a seamless claims settlement process. We make sure that the customer receives outstanding service and that we provide value to all constituents throughout the entire process. We understand that we are a key part of the claims service delivery process and we don't take that obligation lightly.

The Lean Manufacturing Process is a key component in our achievement of outstanding quality, cycle time, and CSI results. We have driven as many as 6 days out of the repair process, which has resulted in dramatic results for our company and our insurance partners and has changed how we now look at the business. We anticipate further improvements as we drive Lean further into the organization.
