Getting An Auto Body Repair Estimate
If you drive cars long enough, it is inevitable that you will at some point be in a car accident and will need to have your vehicle repaired by an auto body repair shop. If you were at fault in the accident, you will need to contact your insurance company right away to facilitate getting your vehicle repaired. If the other driver was at fault, you may contact their insurance provider (assuming you exchanged information after the accident) or you may hear from their insurance company shortly after the accident to begin processing the accident claim. The process starts by getting an auto body repair estimate from a collision repair facility.
Do I have To Use the Body Shop the Insurance Company Recommends?
After you have contacted your car insurance company or have been contacted by the other driver’s insurance company, the next step is to get a repair estimate from a quality auto collision and repair shop. The insurance company may recommend a preferred collision repair center for the repairs. Insurance companies have negotiated contracts with auto body repair facilities for lower labor, parts, and materials cost. However, auto body repair shops are not all created equal, and it is important to find a trustworthy and qualified collision repair facility.
In the State of Ohio, you are under no obligation to use the body shop the insurance company recommends.
