Collision FAQ's from Auto Body Clinic
What do I do in case of an accident?
- Call the police!!! A police officer will help determine whose fault it is and will document a police report. This will help solve any questions your insurance may have regarding the accident.
- Write down the names, phone numbers and insurance information of all the parties involved. Also include any witnesses and their phone numbers.
- Notify the officer in charge who you would like to tow your car and where you want your car towed to. Auto Body Clinic can arrange all of your towing and auto body needs.
- Contact your insurance company and let them know what happened and inform them you want Auto Body Clinic to repair your car.
Do I have to get more than one estimate?
- No. There is no law requiring you to get more than one estimate.
- Simply inform your insurance company where you would like your car repaired. If they still demand 2 estimates, contact the repair facility of your choice and they can deal directly with the insurance company concerning your repair. Most insurance companies are willing to cooperate with any reputable repair facility.
Do I have to take my car to the repair shop my insurance company recommends or can I take it to Auto Body Clinic?
- Only YOU have the right to choose where your car gets repaired. Always remember that this is your car, not the insurance company’s.
- Many insurance companies attempt to steer repairs to a direct repair provider (DRP). DRP shops are preferred by insurance companies only because they usually offer discounts to the insurance companies under contracts.
- Just remember to choose a reputable shop. Any reputable shop will stand behind their repairs and will offer a warranty to cover their repairs.
