Your deductible represents the financial portion of the claim to which you are responsible for. You would have agreed on the $$ amount your deductible represents when you purchased your insurance policy. You may have different deductibles which respond to specific coverage. Please check your insurance policy to verify your deductible(s). Your deductible can be paid at the time you pick up your vehicle once it has been repaired.

By law, you are supposed to report any vehicle accident. As far as rate increases are concerned, most Insurance companies now offer “accident forgiveness” on your 1st at fault accident. You should always check your policy coverage’s to confirm that you have the appropriate coverage. If you are unsure about your coverage’s, always speak to an insurance professional. If you are unclear if the accident was your fault, please review the “Fault Determination” rules utilized by insurance companies to determine fault.
We offer a LIFETIME guarantee on all repairs. We have trained technicians and the latest equipment to ensure the repairs to your vehicle meet manufacturer specifications. It is our responsibility to ensure your vehicle is as safe as it was before the accident.
If your repair is managed by your insurance company; it is not up to the auto body shop to make the decision on which parts to utilize for repairs. The insurance company always decides on how they would like the vehicle repaired. If you are concerned about new parts versus “other” parts, you should speak with your insurance adjuster or agent for clarification.

It is important to take the necessary time and/or steps to ensure all related damages, as a result of an accident, are listed on an estimate. Most vehicle owners will not have the expertise to compare estimates line by line. Most consumers will compare prices which can be very misleading. Assured staff will ensure each customer understands their estimate and feels comfortable with the repair process before proceeding with any repair. One should always confirm that any estimates received are accurate and reflect the damages to be repaired. When comparing estimates from different auto body shops ensure you are comparing consistent estimates; apples to apples NOT apples to oranges.
By law, in most jurisdictions, you should report any accident involving a vehicle to the police. Many jurisdictions WILL NOT dispatch the police to the scene of an accident if there are only minor damages (under $1000/accident; aggregate for all vehicles involved).
No, only the registered owner of a vehicle or the named insured on an Insurance policy may report any accident or damages to their insurance company.
We do not provide courtesy vehicles. If your claim is insurance related, most policies have coverage which will afford you with a rental vehicle while your vehicle is being repaired. Please check with your insurance professional to ensure you have the appropriate coverage.
