Your insurance company must agree to the estimate. Sometimes an insurance company will push back on repair costs and parts used. Many companies will prefer you use after-market or generic parts, try to cut repair hours for the work needed, and cut corners on repairs in general (i.e. repair instead of replace parts). It’s important to read and know what your insurance policy covers so that you can avoid these problems in advance, if possible.
- Repair starts. After the above steps are taken care of your auto body shop should start repairs. Your vehicle should be restored to its pre-accident condition when the repairs are completed. You should make sure your body shop provides a warranty on parts and labor.
Checking your insurance policy for complete coverage of the above-mentioned costs prior to a collision is always a good idea. As the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure.”
