When it comes to auto repair - understand your options!
Your insurance company wants your vehicle properly repaired, and for you to be completely satisfied with their auto claim service. You have specific rights and obligations that you should be aware of. You are not required to use a shop selected by a claims adjuster. However, you are required by your policy to allow your insurance company a reasonable amount of time to inspect the damages prior to repairing them.
Regardless of the situation, it's important to remember that only You, the vehicle owner, can authorize repairs on your vehicle.
