Auto Body Repair Estimating Process: How It Works
After an accident, your insurance company will require you to obtain an estimate for the required auto body repairs in order to restore your car to its pre-accident condition. At Hughes Auto Body, we offer free estimating services in order to help initiate your repair process. We recognize that the repair process can be confusing since it is not something the average person encounters every day, and so we have provided the following information to help explain the auto body estimating process to our customers.
Repair Estimates in Our St. Louis Auto Body Shops
If you would like a free estimate for your collision repair services, you can receive an in-person estimate at any of our St. Louis Area Auto Body Shops. Feel free to stop by at any time that is convenient for you to speak to one of our skilled estimators for a quick estimate. In-person auto body repair estimates vary in length due to the extent of the damage. However, your estimating process should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete at one of our local auto body repair shops in St. Louis. If you are short on time, you are welcome to drop off your car and return later to pick it up with your repair estimate complete.
During your in-person free auto body estimate, one of our skilled estimators will examine all of the damage to your vehicle. They will then input this information into our computers and provide you with your complete repair estimate.
Other Auto Body Repair Estimating Issues
Another common concern during the estimating process is whether our repair shops will work with your insurance company directly or if you will need to communicate with the insurance company regarding repairs. We work with all insurance companies and offer a lifetime warranty on all repairs. As a preferred repair shop for many popular insurance companies, Hughes Auto Body will work directly with the insurance company through what is called a Direct Repair Program. In this program, we speed up the process by eliminating time spent waiting for the insurance company’s adjuster prior to beginning the repair process. If you would like to know if our St. Louis Auto Body Shops are included on your insurance company’s preferred list, contact us today.
A final concern that we frequently encounter when providing auto body repair estimates in St. Louis is whether all repairs will be covered by a customer’s insurance company. All of the repairs that are directly related to the particular accident that we are repairing will be covered by your insurance company. Any additional repairs to existing damage prior to your recent accident will not be covered by your insurance company. However, if you would like a second estimate for additional repairs to your car, truck, or SUV, please let our estimator know during the estimating process.
