Your car is the second largest investment you are likely to make. Preserve its value, protect your family’s safety, and preserve the vehicle’s value by having it professionally repaired.
Never drive a car that is damaged. It may be unsafe.
Some insurance companies want you to visit their drive-in claims center, but you may not have to. You may be able to leave your car at Auto Body Concepts and ask the insurance company to inspect the car here. Ask your claims representative. It is less hassle and less expense for you if you do not have to bring your care to the drive-in claims center.
There is no law requiring you to obtain more than one estimate or appraisal. Obtaining multiple estimates can be aggravating and cost you time. Instead, investigate the local auto shops and evaluate the quality of their work, the certifications they hold, and the recommendations they provide. Select the company you feel does the best work and then ask for an estimate.
You have the right to go to the repair shop of your choice. Your insurance company cannot require you to go to a particular shop. Do your research and select the shop with the highest quality of work and the best reputation.
Differences in repair estimates between repair shops are common. A lower estimate may not include all necessary work or may use non-OEM parts. If you aren’t sure why our estimate is different from another one you have received, please ask. We will always take the time to explain our estimates and educate you on the work that your vehicle needs.
Choose a shop that has uni-body repair equipment and certified technicians. This ensures that qualified technicians are repairing the car properly and that it will be safe to drive. Auto Body Concepts is both ASE-Certified and I-CAR Gold Class Professional level.
Ask if the shop will be using genuine manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts. Auto Body Concepts uses only genuine replacement parts because they provide the safest, best repair.
Ask if the shop offers a repair warranty. Reputable auto repair shops stand behind their work. Auto Body Concepts offers a lifetime warranty.
Let Auto Body Concepts help you negotiate your claim with the insurance company. We can explain to your insurance company why certain repairs and/or parts are needed.
