Should I make an insurance claim?
There can be many things to consider when deciding whether to make an insurance claim or not. We would be glad to provide you with options to assist you in making your decision. Call us and arrange to bring the car in for a preliminary inspection and to discuss your concerns.
Can I use the shop of my choice?
When you are involved with an insurance claim, you are in the drivers seat. You and only you decide who will repair your damaged vehicle. Your insurance company may prefer to have a particular repair shop perform the repairs on your vehicle but, ultimately it is your decision.
What is a supplement?
A supplement is the cost of damages that are found over and above of the initial estimated cost of damages. Our preference is to remove the parts from the vehicle to expose any hidden damage, although this is not always possible. In this way we can provide you with a more accurate cost of repairs.
What is the deductible and when do I pay it?
Your deductible is the amount of the repairs that you as the insured is responsible for. Your insurance company is responsible for everything above your deductible amount. The insurance company pays the full bill at completion of the vehicle repairs, less the deductible amount. The insured pays the deductible amount upon pickup of the vehicle.
Do the parts come painted from the dealer?
Very few parts come painted from the dealer. Color coded parts are usually minor parts such as mirrors, moldings, and trim panels. Our estimators will always take into consideration if a part is painted and if it is cost effective to use. By far the majority of parts need refinishing when we receive them.
What is an OEM part?
The term OEM (original equipment manufacturer) is used to describe a part that is supplied by the manufacturer of a particular vehicle line.
Who pays the tow bill?
The Insurance Company responsible for paying for your repairs is also responsible for paying the tow bill to the shop of your choice. If the Insurance Company selected a shop and you prefer to go elsewhere, they are still obligated to pay for the additional tow.
Do I need three estimates?
You do not need three estimates to determine the damage to your vehicle, unless of course that is your desire. It is best for you to decide which repair shop you would like to repair your vehicle and have them perform a thorough inspection.
Do you offer free estimates?
Yes we do and no appointments are necessary. Just visit us and we will be happy to write your estimate while you wait.
My car was damaged in the middle of the night. Could I have it towed to your shop then?
Of course, our shop is accessible 24 hours a day. We can tow your car and will be kept in a gated secure lot, out of sight until we arrive in the morning.
