Because of all the money you put into your car, make sure you work to help it hold its value. Keep up on its routine maintenance and any time it needs to be taken in for service or repairs, choose a professional.
If a car is damaged, whether from wear and tear or from a collision, do not drive or ride in it. Safety first!
When you’re in need of repairs or service, you have two options when it comes to coordinating the car shop and your insurance company. Either visit your insurance company’s drive-in claim center prior to repairs or leave your car at the shop of your choice and ask your insurance company to inspect the car there.
You do not have to obtain more than one estimate or appraisal.
When your car needs service, you have the right to choose the shop or mechanic. Your car insurance company is not allowed to limit your options.

If you are confused as to why an estimate differs from another, ask a shop’s manager to review it with you. 7. Choose a professional car shop with technicians certified by I-CAR or ASE, as well as one that is equipped with unibody repair machinery. 8. If you need replacement parts, ask the shop if they will use manufacturer OEM replacement parts. 9. Ask if the shop pairs their work with any warrantees or guarantees. 10. Let the shop of your choice work with your insurance in order to receive a better deal.
