What Do I do if my insurance company wants me to go to their suggested repair shop?

You have the right to select the shop of your choice. Pick a repair shop, leave your automobile there and notify your insurance agent.

Do I need three estimates?

Get as many as you like, but the insurance company cannot demand any. Select a repair facility of your choice before you discuss the claim with your Insurance Company. Do not drive a damaged vehicle.

The Insurance Company has 6 days to inspect damage initially and 2 days to inspect any additional damages. You can require the insurance company to go to you for their inspection of damage. We suggest that you leave the vehicle at our facility, so that we may go over the damage with the insurance adjuster. Enabling your vehicle to be repaired the best way, not necessarily the cheapest way that the insurance company would like it to be.

The Insurance Company may attempt to steer you to one of their authorized repair shops. Beware these shops may have cut deals with that insurance company or agreed to attempt to sell you cheap aftermarket parts.

Just tell your insurance company “NO!” — it’s your power word.
