Contrary to what may be popular belief, you have no obligation to take your vehicle to be repaired at the auto body shop recommended by your insurance company…in most cases that is. You may take your damaged vehicle to your preferred auto body repair shop and your insurance company is STILL obligated to pay for the repairs!
You may ask don’t insurance companies know what they’re doing when they recommend a repair shop to you? No, not necessarily. Many insurers have ongoing contracts with auto repair shops in a certain area, and they try to steer a significant percentage of their claims toward those shops. The repair contracts allow insurance companies to meet claims at a lower cost to them.
To them, it’s just good business...to you, it may be the difference between the complete repair that your car needs and the one that it gets…courtesy of your insurance company. Always get what you pay for in collision repair. Trust the 50+ years of quality workmanship and care that you get in the Louisville area from Don Embry Body Shop at 8272 Dixie Highway.
