Collision Repair: FAQ


Collision Repair: FAQIf you've never before needed collision repair, you might have some questions about the process. At Universal Auto Body & Glass, we're more than happy to carefully explain the work that will be done and the costs that'll be involved. The important thing is that collision damage is repaired quickly so that you're not driving an unsafe vehicle and so that rust doesn't get the opportunity to take hold. Here's a look at some of the frequently asked questions about collision repair.

What happens with my car following an accident?

If your vehicle is inoperable, then it'll have to be towed either to a collision center or to a facility belonging to your insurance company where the damage can be evaluated. If your vehicle has suffered some minor damage but can be safely driven, then you can continue to use it until it comes time for your appointment at the shop.

How much does it cost to repair collision damage?

The costs involved will depend on how bad the damage is. By going to a shop that provides free and accurate estimates, you'll be able to gain an understanding of the potential expenses before you actually commit to spending a penny. How much you have to spend out-of-pocket will hinge on your specific insurance policy.

Who chooses where the repairs are done? Me or my insurance company?

Your insurance agent might strongly recommend that you go to a specific shop for the repairs, but you'll want to keep in mind that it's ultimately your decision where to bring your vehicle. And it's best to choose a shop that has earned a strong reputation for providing excellent work at reasonable rates.
