Repair Process

Below you will find a simplified version of our repairs process. Should you have any questions about the process and steps we take to repair your vehicle and how to handle insurance claims. Please feel free to give us a call. 419-382-1121.

Loss Notice

Contact your insurance company and report your claim and receive your claim number. Give us a call here at Frank G Auto collision repair center. We will assist you with the rest of the process until you are back on the road good as new.

Manage Claim

We Take It From Here! After the claim is processed the insurance companies set the initial inspection. The insurance company will then determine the coverage and limitations associated with the claim. Inspection will begin usually within 24 hours.

Repairs

Parts will be ordered. Tear down and disassembly will begin along with the repair process. If new damage is found during disassembly, we will contact the insurance company to create a supplement for any additional damage, parts or repairs.

Final Steps

Itemized repair order and estimate will be delivered outlining all the work that has been completed. If satisfied, you’re only responsible for the deductible unless there was any customer pay work initially agreed upon or any betterment that was applied by the insurance company.

Frequently Ask Questions

No. This is called insurance steering. Insurer steering happens when your insurance company tries to persuade you to use a specific repair shop through their Direct Repair Program. This is a contract between a body shop and an insurer to provide reduced repair costs using aftermarket parts that are not genuine OEM parts. This can compromise your vehicle’s safety and lead to costly corrective repairs after the fact. Some insurance companies even have a stake in ownership or have contractual agreements that include concessions that are not in your best interest as a driver. Remember- Only you can approve who carries out your repairs. Frank G Auto goes to bat regularly for our clients to ensure your repairs are done right, and your vehicle is restored to safe driving conditions. We never cut corners with your safety.

Most insurers write a low estimate to begin with, and they will tell you once the car is under repair, your shop can request a supplement. That’s our job, no need to worry. Once the car is in our shop for repairs, we will renegotiate with the adjuster to make sure the insurance company allows us to restore your car to pre-accident condition to the highest degree possible.

We always recommend using new OEM parts, however these are generally more expensive than used or aftermarket parts. Unless your insurance coverage includes an OEM Parts Endorsement you can expect the insurer to always specify cheaper parts. Insurers can’t require non-OEM parts unless they are equivalent to OEM parts. Someone has to demonstrate to the insurer that specified aftermarket parts are not equivalent to OEM parts. That’s where Dallas Collision steps in and advocates for your best interests, so you don’t have to.

Generally, when you’re having your car repaired you’re entitled to an itemized written estimate from your chosen shop for repairs that you must authorize in order to commence work. Once repairs are underway, you also have the right to authorize any additional repairs and costs before that work is started.
When using insurance you’re entitled to having your car repaired back to pre-loss condition. If your insurance company is paying for repairs then some items may be limited to specific policy provisions. Even if you’re not at fault, and the at fault insurance company is paying for repairs there still may be some limitations as to what is and isn’t covered.

By law, our shop repairs your car for you (the consumer) and the insurance company is not involved in that contract. We make sure you know how the car is being repaired (and that the insurance company has agreed to pay for it) before the onset of the repair process.
