Are You Looking for a Reputable Bodyshop That Can Help With Geico Insurance Claims Near the South Hills of Pittsburgh?
Tachoir Auto Body Can Help With Your Geico Claim
Navigating car insurance claims can be difficult, so let’s try to give a very simple explanation. Professionals such as doctors and dentists can decide to contract with insurance companies and their rates. This is considered “In Network”. Tachoir Auto Body handles all “Out of Network” customers as if they are “In Network”. This means, we will talk with your insurer and negotiate on your behalf to repair the car back to factory specifications. We never charge our customers out of pocket beyond their deductible if they owe one. Additionally, we still give a Lifetime Warranty on Workmanship for our “Out of Network” customers.
The only difference between “in network” and “out of network” in the auto body collision repair world is that we do not give discounts to or contract with “out of network” providers. This does not effect the safety of repairs or how easy the process is. Just give us your claim number and we can take it from there!
Let Us Help With Your Geico Insurance Claim
While it’s great to have Geico insurance coverage for your vehicle, it’s better to have an insurance carrier that makes it a breeze for bodywork repairs after an accident. Tachoir Auto Body specializes in Geico collision repair, and we’d love to help you with the claims process. If you’ve filed an auto insurance claim before, then you know insurance companies like Geico have a list of approved auto repair shops in Pittsburgh that agree to your carrier’s current labor rates and requirements to give discounts on price in exchange for Geico sending a high volume of work to the shop.
Unlike other insurance carriers, Geico typically refers their customers to some of the largest and highest volume repair shops in Pittsburgh for an estimate and repairs to try to save cost. What you may not know is that under state law, even if we aren’t on a list of approved Geico auto body shops, we can still handle your repairs and it will not cost anything additional beyond your deductible (if you have a deductible).

How Do Geico’s Insurance Claims Work
My car is not drivable. How do I get it fixed at Tachoir?
Just contact Tachoir Auto Body with your claim number. We can arrange a tow from where your vehicle is and help you get into a rental car if needed. Geico will send a claims adjuster to our shop to appraise the damages after it is towed in.
My car is drivable. What do I do to get an estimate and schedule my repairs?
Geico offers an online app where you take photos of your car and damages. Just download the app, enter the claim number, and take pictures as instructed. Geico will reach out with an initial estimate that you need to bring to us to get your vehicle repaired.
What if Geico’s estimate of the damages differs from Tachoir Auto Body’s estimate? Will I owe additional money if Tachoir’s Estimate is more?
When a claims adjuster inspects your car to make an estimate for repairs (in person, or via the photo app), their estimated cost for repairs may differ from our estimate. If this happens, we adhere to your insurance provider’s estimate, using it as a guide as we complete your repairs.
During the repair process, we may uncover damage that your insurance company missed, which may inflate the final cost. If this happens during your claim, we share the news with your insurance provider so they can decide whether to send out another claims adjuster to modify the existing estimate. Either way, the additional work is billed to your claim and you will never owe any money other than your deductible (if you have one).
The next time you have to file an auto claim, don’t take your chances with just any Geico collision center. For more information on how we handle insurance claims, car rentals and repairs, reach out to Tachoir Auto Body representative by calling 412-233-3196.
