Do I have To Use The Body Shop My Insurance Recommends?
No, you do not have to use your insurance company’s recommended body shop. You are free to choose whatever body shop you’d like to work with.
Many insurance companies may try to persuade you or even trick you into using their preferred body shop, but stand up for yourself, you don’t have to.
Chase Rasmussen, a personal injury attorney, sat down with me to discuss this topic. We’ll talk about why you may not want to use the insurance company’s preferred shop and discuss examples and stories.
We also cover the topic of comprehensive and collision coverage. We’ll break down the difference between the two and if you need to purchase them or not.
Choosing A Repair Shop To Repair Your Vehicle
If your vehicle has been in an accident and you are filing a claim to repair your damaged vehicle, you have options! You may feel rushed or pressured by the insurance company to choose a repair shop (they’ll probably push you to use theirs). Don’t feel pressured! Take your time and find the right body shop for you and your vehicle. You have the option to use who YOU know and trust.
