Dynamic calibration can be charged to insurance with the installation of your new windshield, or purchased out of pocket for a flat rate. Pre and post scans must be submitted to insurance. We do not offer static calibration, which is more common of foreign makes. In the case you need a static calibration, we will refer you to trusted dealers in the area, or you may choose a dealer of your liking, as per most insurers guidelines, it is mandatory for calibration to be performed by a dealer after a windshield replacement. It is ultimately the owner's responisiblity to determine in which ways their particular vehicle's adas is required to be calibrated. If you choose to decline dynamic or static ADAS calibration, you must sign a release of liability.
