At Nu-Look Collision in Binghamton, NY, we understand how stressful it is to deal with an auto accident or other disaster. Whether you're in the process of filing a claim or need to find the right collision repair shop for your vehicle, we want to make sure you have the info you need to make the best decision so you can get back on the road without any worry or hassle.
Should I continue driving my car if it's not safe to operate?
No-not only is it a safety hazard, there's a chance your insurance won't cover you if you get into another accident.
Do I have to use the collision repair shop my insurance provider selects?
No- you're free to choose which ever repair facility you feel will give you the best results. If you have a repair facility you have frequented before, it's usually better to take your vehicle there because they'll be more familiar with your car.
How long do I need to wait before taking my vehicle to a repair shop?
You'll need to give your insurance company enough time to inspect the damage.
Should I always go with the lowest estimate?
Not necessarily-a low estimate might not include necessary repair items and parts for your vehicle. Shop around for quotes from various repair shops before you make a decision-if you get estimates that are drastically different, it's good to ask why.
What should I look for in a repair shop?
You should make sure the shop you ultimately choose has the right certifications-like ASE certification or I-Car-as well as the right equipment for your particular situation.
Your best option is to go with a direct repair facility, which can make the process of submitting a claim and getting the right repairs much easier.
What are the benefits of working with a direct repair facility?
A direct repair facility will work directly with your insurance carrier to handle your claim-that way, you won't need to get multiple quotes before your insurance will pay your claim. Direct repair facilities will also have the right certification and training, advanced repair equipment and a strict adherence to EPA guidelines. You can rest assured that your vehicle will get the service it needs at a fair price.
