Know Your Rights
Dealing with the stress of a collision is hard enough without trying to figure out how your accident insurance works. Here are some answers to frequently-asked questions about insurance policies.
Will the insurance company guarantee your work?
We guarantee our own work, but the insurance company does not have the legal right to guarantee a third party's work.
Who pays for repairs?
It depends on the circumstances. If you were at fault, but have comprehensive or collision insurance, the insurance company would pay the costs minus your deductible. If the other party was at fault, their insurance company should pay.
Do I have to accept the insurance company's appraisal of damage?
No. Check the "Appraisal Clause" in your policy if you have differences with their appraisal. It allows you and the insurance company to gather an opinion from an appraiser you both agree upon, or a third-party "Umpire" if you cannot agree.
Do I have the right to a rental car?
If you have purchased rental car coverage and were not responsible for the accident, you may seek reimbursement from the insurance company or, if another driver was responsible for the accident, their insurance company.
If you do not have rental car coverage and were responsible for the accident, you have no grounds to ask for reimbursement. If the other driver was liable, you can generally seek reimbursement from their insurance company.

Had to have my shocks fixed and converted over from an air ride shock system last fall, and was very pleased with my service. Fast, professional, and very fair on the price. They have a permanent customer now.
Just stopped in, got an oil change right then, while I waited.
Great knowledge and services.
Great Auto repair shop! Rusty is a great guy!
Excellent and quick repairs. Highly recommend.
They are fast and friendly. They make going to the mechanic much easier, and as a female, they don't try and sell you what you don't need and make it uncomfortable to be there.
My appointment was at 10:30am. I arrived early, and they were able to get my car in early. I had my sway bar links in the front and tie rod arms replaced. They were very affordable and quick. Friendly and professional staff.
