MISTAKE #1 – Let your insurance company choose your Auto Body Shop
Many insurance companies mislead or pressure their insured’s into choosing a repair shop that serves the best interests of the insurance company
and not your best interests. What your insurance company won’t tell you is that it is your choice by law to choose any repair facility of your choice regardless of being on their list or not.
ln an effort to steer you to a specific repair shop, your insurance company may use the following tactic:
Advise you that delays inherent in the repair process will be avoided if you take your vehicle to their preferred shop.
Your insurance company won’t tell you most delays in the repair process are due to parts and their availability.
They will say that you will incur additional out of pocket expenses if you choose to use an independent repair facility which is not on their referral list.
They will promise you that if you take your car to a shop on their list they will guarantee the repairs.
MISTAKE #2 – Choosinq a body shop that is not factory certified
What your insurance company won’t tell you is that your car could be a “guinea pig” for their preferred shop because they have never worked on
your make and model before.
MISTAKE #3 – Use Counterfeit Replacement Parts
Counterfeit automotive parts are a $12 billion dollar business. These parts are made with lower tolerances and quality that are often not visible to the human eye – but can affect safety and resale value of your vehicle. What your insurance company won’t tell you is that their preferred body shops
are required by the insurance company to use a certain percentage of these counterfeit parts in order to stay on their preferred list.
