Most people buy insurance hoping that they’ll never need to use it. But when an accident does happen, it helps to be able to understand how insurance works – and to have a body shop on your side who can walk you through the process and deal with the insurance company.
West Mesa Auto Craft has been working with insurance companies since our inception in 1987. If your vehicle needs a repair estimate to supply to the insurance company, we are happy to provide this. We can also work with estimates written by insurance adjusters when handling your car’s repairs.
Before an insurance company will approve repairs after an accident, it will want the vehicle to be inspected and an estimate to be written. There are one of two ways for this to happen: Either a body shop can complete the estimate and send it to the insurance company, or an insurance adjuster can come and look at the vehicle for himself.
We handle estimates of the first type. When we write an estimate for an insurance company, we make it as thorough as possible, doing a tear-down to inspect hidden damages if we can. We also take photographs of everything to document all damages so the insurance company has a thorough understanding of what repairs will be necessary.
We’ll send this in to your insurer for you, saving you the hassle of filling out any additional paperwork, and once the insurance company approves repairs, we can start work immediately.
All of our estimates are free, whether you’re paying for your repairs out of pocket or having the insurance company cover the damages. And when you get an estimate with West Mesa Auto Craft, you are not obligated to do anything. If you think we’re the right fit for your needs, we can start work right away. If not, you can take the estimate to a different shop.
If your insurance company wants you to get a car repair estimate, contact us today. We’ll be happy to inspect your damages and make a plan for getting you back on the road as quickly as possible.
