We at Collision Experts Inc get asked a lot of questions and we are happy to share our knowledge!
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:
Do you work with all insurance companies?
Yes. Collision Experts Inc works with all major insurance companies.
My insurance company recommended body shops to use, do I need to bring my car there?
No. Your insurer may have given you a list of auto body repair shops to use, but that does not mean you are limited to those options. It is always your choice to choose where you bring your car. In many cases your insurance company will "steer" you towards the cheapest price without considering the quality of the work. At Collision Experts Inc, we’re a fully certified auto body repair shop that performs high-quality auto body repair and follow OEM Manufacturer specifications and procedurers.
The person who hit me does not want to go through insurance, is that ok?
As is common with small accidents, the person responsible for the collision does not want to go through insurance and would rather pay for the damage upfront to keep their premium from going up. This is perfectly fine, but keep in mind, that there will be no guarantee that there will be more money in the future if further repairs are needed as a result of this accident. In this case, it becomes your responsibility to make sure your car or truck is repaired correctly. Sometimes the other party will try to steer you to a shop that they're accustomed to. Do your research and find the shop you want to go to.
Can you match the paint color?
You bet. In most cases, not even the keenest eye will be able to notice that your car has received a new paint job. Collision Experts Inc uses the most advanced form of technology to ensure your new paint matches your old paint.
Do you repair both mechanical and structural damage?
Of course. Our certified mechanics are experienced with all facets of auto repair, from wheel alignments to suspension work, from frame repair to sectioning quarter and rear body panels.
Do you offer courtesy cars?
Unfortunately, No. We are more than happy to provide you with an alternative mode of transportation while your vehicle is being repaired. Collision Experts Inc has relationships with most rental companies that will provide you with a discounted rate while your vehicle is being repaired.
