You Don’t Have To Use The Repair Shop Your Insurance Tells You To – Here’s Why

Car accidents happen. And if you’re on this website, you’ve probably been in one and want to find out the best course of action for your car, and for your wallet. Obviously, the first action most people take after an accident is to file a claim with their insurance company, but insurance companies are notorious for recommending you take the action that better serves their business needs, not yours. Let’s look into this a little further. Say you’ve been in an accident, and your car needs serious internal repairs and body work. Why would your insurance recommend X company that they have partnered with over another auto repair company?

The answer is that they dictate how the repair on your car will be completed, meaning they’re free to cut corners and do a less-than-fantastic job on your car to save money. This could mean that they may “repair” a part that may need a full replacement, leaving you powerless and uncertain about your car’s condition.

So, what can you do about it? The first step would be to understand how the repair process works from start to finish at the repair shop you’re considering. If they’re independent of any restrictions from insurance partners, this empowers you as the car owner to know you’re getting the best repair you can. Remember, either the insurance company gets the good deal, or you do. You need to know that the repair company is able to work with your insurance company and has a streamlined claims process to minimize the hassle and stress that already exists when you get in an accident.
