Tesla alerted owners and customers at the end of the last week of January its service centers will now offer collision repair.
CEO Elon Musk mentioned this back in 2018, and it's something people have been waiting for.
The message was titled, "Collision Repair is Here,” and it said Tesla Service Centers can "fix minor dents, scuffs, scratches and more."
The message also talked about collision repair, including "suspension and axle damage, front and rear bumpers, hoods, liftgates and side mirror caps, along with doors, wheels and all glass repairs."
According to the report by CNBC, owners can simply visit their Tesla app to make an appointment. Choose the “Collision & Glass Repair” tab from the app's Service Menu. After an appointment is made, owners can track the progress on the app.
A select few Tesla Service Centers have been offering larger repairs for some time though; in most cases, those repairs were reserved for Tesla-approved collision shops. Now that Tesla will move collision repair "in-house," it will add yet another consistent revenue stream to its bottom line.
