What To Expect When You're In An Accident
When you are in an accident, call the police and make a report. You will want to make sure that you also exchange information with all parties involved. Do not rely on the police to share personal information regarding any other party. By retrieving the information yourself, it can expedite the claim process and ensure your vehicle to be repaired without delays.
Many times when confronted by an insurance company, whether it is your company or any other party involved, they may try to persuade you to have repairs completed at one of their “preferred shops”. Common tactics may include a guarantee, warranty, time or even discount incentive. Many of these programs have been developed by the insurance company with their best interest in mind, not yours. Remember; it’s your vehicles and your decision on where you want the repairs completed.
Don’t be afraid to take charge of the conversation and tell them you want your vehicle inspected at your dealership. All insurance companies will be more than willing to meet with you and the body shop manager at the dealership to inspect damages.
Supplemental damages are very common in collision repairs. These additional costs can occur from price increases or secondary damages found after the vehicle has been disassembled. Repairs don’t evolve around an agreed amount of money, but an agreed repair philosophy and part usage. Medina Buick & GMC’s Body Shop staff will take charge of your repair process and recommend the highest quality repair with safety, warranty and customer concerns as priority.
When you make decisions with the insurer up-front on how you would like to the repairs paid, either directly to the shop or to you, this can also be frustrating when it comes to actually paying for the repairs.
