INSURANCE QUESTIONS

INSURANCE QUESTIONS, St. Petersburg, FL

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.

TESTIMONIALS

I brought my Cadillac in thinking I had to have the transmission replaced. The dealer said it would be $4000 so I brought it in to see what they could do for me. Dan not only walked me thru all of the options, he diagnosed it for free. After inspecting it he said he could repair it instead of rebuilding it for only $460! Three months later, and my car runs great! Thank you so much!

HONEST staff !!!! I'll take my Jeep here any day over anyone else. They were very open and honest about what I didn't need to spend money on to get done that another auto shop told me was pertinent.

They have always been good to me. They have been working on my 2 cars for a few years now . Quick and reasonable. I would recommend them and I do. Have had no problems with anything they have done yet. They got me out of a major bind this week and I want to thank them again! Good mechanics that you can trust are hard to find. And I think I found some working here.

Did a total rebuild on my Transmission with all new parts for was less than anyone else would quote me. They did blow my tire backing out of their shop, but quickly replaced it with a brand new tire at no cost to me. Very friendly, very professional, did amazing work on my 23 year old truck.

Fair & Honest Place, These guys saved me a bundle, My truck transmission was slipping, so I took it to a few other shops first, They both wanted to replace the transmission, for way more than I could afford. A friend of mine told me about this place. So I Figured lets try one more store, cause I was thinking of trading it in, I am so glad I tried here, they took care of it, and saved me a whole bunch of cash. It didn't need a new transmission after all. Just an honest mechanic, and I didn't really want a monthly payment again neither... It's been over a month now, and all is working great. Thanks you guys ROCK
