What if my insurance estimate is lower than yours?
It always is, insurance companies insure vehicles. We are the professionals of repairing them. We will negotiate with your insurance company to get all the monies required to repair your vehicle back to manufacturers specifications.
Am I entitled to a free loaner car?
Unfortunately, we are such a large shop that we cannot supply loaner cars to our customers. Most insurance policies will cover a rental car. You will need to find out how much daily coverage you are entitled to under your policy. We have an enterprise office on our premises, and they can direct bill most insurance companies.
How is payment arranged for my claim?
We do have direct pay arrangements with a few insurance companies. If your vehicle is financed or leased, it will have a lien holder on it and it is your responsibility to have it endorsed before your repairs are done unless the lien holder is BMW financial services or Saab financial. All other payments from your insurance company would be sent to the owner´s home address.
