Collision Repair & Insurance Information

Choosing Your Collision Repair Shop in West Palm Beach, FL

When a vehicle is damaged by collision, vandalism, theft or fire, a consumer must decide where to take their vehicle for repairs. Some insurance companies maintain a list of "preferred" auto body and collision repair shops, which the insurance company recommends to the consumer. Remember, you as a consumer have a choice of whether or not to use an insurance company's preferred shop.

If the vehicle is repaired at a shop which is chosen by the consumer, the insurance company must pay the reasonable costs to repair the vehicle in a respectable and efficient manner. The insurance company is prohibited from limiting or discounting reasonable repair costs based on charges that would have occurred if the vehicle had been repaired at the company's recommended repair shop. Also, the insurance company is obligated to stand behind the repairs of the recommended shop even if the vehicle is not repaired properly.

Don't get steered, you have the right to choose where you take your vehicle for auto body and collision repairs.
