Don’t be vulnerable after an auto accident part 5 — Because you’re the customer


This post is part 5 in our 5 week series that will cover reasons why you should get an estimate done by an independent auto body and paint repair shop like Miracle Body and Paint in San Antonio Texas before you agree to have anyone repair your vehicle.

Because you’re the customer

We touched on this before, but when you have your car or truck’s collision repair done at the insurance company’s preferred shop, you are not the customer. Because the insurance company funnels their clients to a particular accident repair shop, that shop works to keep the insurance company happy. This may mean having your car out a day or to earlier then it should be by cutting corners, or by using subpar replacement parts in order to keep cost down. Since the auto body shop instantly becomes dependent on the insurance company for a steady flow of repairs, the insurance company becomes the customer and you and your damaged vehicle becomes just another number.  In fact, many if not all preferred collision shops give volume discounts to the insurance company for funneling vehicles to their doors, but not at Miracle Body & Paint.

At Miracle Body & Paint, our team works with all insurance companies to make sure that the proper amount of time needed to complete your vehicles collision repair is the amount of time we take. Because we don’t have the pressure of having a preferred shop title taken away from us, we can be sure that we are always doing the right thing for our client, You. While at preferred shops the discounts are given to the insurance company, we know who our client is and we pass our discount on to you in the form of a deductible discount.

In Texas you have the right to choose where you want to have your vehicle repaired.  You should have your repairs done by a shop that has your best interest in mind.  With an A+ rating with the BBB you can trust that Manuel and his team truly are the best collision repair team to turn to when you have an auto accident and need your car or truck repaired.  The best part is, we discount deductibles by as much as 15% and work to make sure you don’t have to bring your vehicle back once we send it home.
