If your car has suffered a collision, you would have to take it to the body shop for repairs. But before you do that, you may have questions about the collision repair process. Here are answers to some of them from the leading auto glass repair and body shop, A&A Auto Glass in Houston.
Q. Can I choose where I take my car for repair?
A. Certainly. You can choose where to take your car for repair. Your insurance company will work with the shop you prefer. A&A Auto Glass can help to negotiate with your insurer to get the best repairs done.
Q. Do I have to get several estimates?
A. Unless your policy says so clearly, you do not have to get more than one estimate. Most body shops can provide you with a free estimate.
Q. Do I have to pay the difference if my estimate is higher than what my insurance company wrote?
A. Insurance adjusters usually write an estimate based on visible damage. Additional damage may be revealed on closer inspection. The body shop will work with your insurer to inform them of additional damage and negotiate with them for payments.
Q. Will estimates vary between different repair shops?
A. Yes, it is possible. Sometimes, the estimate amount may not include some repairs or parts required. The choice of parts and the shop’s hourly rates can also make a difference. A&A Auto Glass can give you estimates that are more accurate.
Q. Will my vehicle look the same after the repairs as it was before the collision?
A. Highly skilled and experienced technicians can restore your vehicle to its pre-collision condition.
Q. How much time will it take to repair my car or truck?
A. The body shop will give you with an estimated delivery time. Depending on the repairs required, parts availability and insurer approvals, the time taken for different vehicles could vary. Ask the body shop to keep you informed of any changes in the schedule.
