How do you get your car repaired after an accident? This is not a question anyone wants to have to ask, but it is necessary...especially before you make your problems worse by choosing the wrong body shop or blindly following your insurance company’s advice.
If you are involved in a collision, just remember that accidents DO happen and that they are usually repairable. Hopefully there are no injuries and all that you will have to deal with is getting your car repaired, but it can be stressful and time consuming...unless you get help from someone who knows what to do.
AutoAid has always been on the side of our clients, helping you get the best repairs with the best parts at the lowest cost and least inconvenience to you. Here’s how to get through this difficult time.
Dealing With Your Insurance Company
Your first step will be to contact your insurance company, which will assign you an adjuster. While it’s the adjuster’s job to help you get your car repaired, their first priority is to save the insurance company as much money as possible—which could mean incomplete repairs or inferior parts. They may also insist that you get several estimates, which is a complete waste of time.
No matter what your insurance adjuster tells you, you DO NOT have to go the shop that your insurance company recommends. The California Auto Body Repair Bill of Rights says that for a car repair after an accident, you get to choose the body shop where you feel the most comfortable and trust that you will receive the best service.
Tell your insurance adjuster as little as possible about your condition, impact, soreness, and the other physical effects of the accident. They will record all of these facts, which may negatively impact a personal injury claim, should you choose to file one. All you need to do is get a claim number and send the vehicle to AutoAid. We will do the rest.
Negotiating Car Repair After An Accident
You may have no idea where to get a quote or how many to get. You might spend time calling friends for referrals and advice. You may also have no idea how much damage has actually been done to your vehicle. Sometimes cracks and problems can be hidden, and only revealed at a trustworthy and thorough shop.
This is why we hope you’ll choose AutoAid. Because we will make things easier for you. AutoAid will actually deal with your insurance company for you, so you don’t have to! We’ll even make sure you understand your full rental car benefits, and then help you arrange for a car rental.
