Things to Know Before Having Your Car Repaired

X

 

Your car is generally your second largest investment...
so preserve its value and your safety by having it repaired by a professional body shop like Greg’s Auto Collision center.
Don't drive a car that may be unsafe...
Call Greg’s and we will have your car towed safely in for repairs.
Some insurance companies want you to visit their claims center before having your car repaired...
 You can do this, or you may leave your car at Greg’s body shop and ask that the insurance company come to inspect the car.  We work closely with all major insurance companies.  We will advise them of all work and repairs that need to be done to your vehicle.
There is no law that requires you get more than one estimate or appraisal on your vehicle...
You have the right to talk to as many auto body shops as you like to help you make an informed decision about fixing your car.
You have the right to take your vehicle to the body shop of your choice...
 Your insurance company cannot require you to go to a preferred shop, but usually can recommend a reputable repair center including Greg’s Collision Center.
Differences in repair estimates are common...

A lower estimate may not include all necessary work. If you’re not sure why one estimate is different from another, please ask us.

Always choose a body shop that has Unibody repair equipment and certified (by I-CAR or ASE for example) technicians...
Greg’s Collision Center is an I-CAR Gold Class center and all of our technicians have continuing I-CAR and ASE training to ensure that they are skilled in the latest repair processes and equipment. Our facilities are certified by most of the automobile manufacturers to perform factory specified repairs.
Make sure you choose a collision repair center that has the most advanced equipment and systems...
These are used to remove and re-install frame, suspension, engine, and drive train components as well as provide other essential collision repair services.  Greg’s has the latest equipment and training necessary to repair your car to its exact factory specifications.
Make sure that the body shop offers a Lifetime Warranty...

Greg’s offers every customer our Lifetime Warranty that protects you for as long as you own your vehicle.

Let us help you work with your insurance company...
Greg’s has established positive business relationships with virtually every auto insurance company. Our ability to cut through the red tape ensures a smoother, faster repair process.
Ask the repair center to pre-arrange a rental car...
 Since the average car is in the repair shop for two weeks, ask if the shop can make recommendations for a rental car company and if they can arrange for a replacement rental car to be ready when you drop off your car. Greg’s can arrange a rental car for you on the spot or we will take you to the nearest rental location and help set you up with a rental car.
