Insurance Company Tactics

Let’s face it, Insurance companies are in business to make a profit. All those TV commercials running multiple times daily are quite expensive and the fat has to get cut somewhere. So where does that leave you after a collision? Watch this video for a little insight into what’s really going on after an accident.

Avoid Steering

Insurance Companies have been called out time and again for “Steering”. This is where the Insurance Company directs you to one of their “preferred” Collision Repair Centers after an accident. The Insurance Company has an arrangement set up with these DRP ( Direct Repair Program ) Body Shops.

Get Proper Repairs

Most people pay a moderate price for Car Insurance so it’s fair to say they expect the repairs to be done properly – right? When you get the claim finished and receive your estimate look at the fine print. This is where you will find it calling for aftermarket vs OEM, refurbished or equivalent, as well as other items like repair vs replace.
