Progressive Approved Preferred Body Shops
Dealing with an auto accident is enough of a disruption to your life and peace of mind, you don’t need to deal with the complications of filing an insurance claim. The pros at Tachoir Auto Body at Jefferson Hills are the answer to the question of, “Are there trusted Progressive approved body shops near me?” Let us handle your claim and repair while you focus on recovering from your ordeal and getting back to your normal day-to-day life.
Understanding the Claims Process
If you’ve never filed an insurance claim before, let alone used a Progressive auto body shop, then you may not know where to start after ensuring everyone involved in the accident is OK, taking pictures of the damage to your vehicle and exchanging insurance information. After that, we recommend:
- Bring your vehicle and insurance information to our auto shop.
- Let us call your insurance company for you to start the claims process.
- Have the claims adjuster come to our auto shop to create a damage report, which we can also create and submit.
- Let us coordinate with the at-fault party to cover the cost of repairs.
Should you need alternate transportation around Pennsylvania after dropping your vehicle off with us, we can provide you with a rental vehicle.
Your Car, Your Choice of Auto Repair Shops
Usually, insurance companies have specific local authorized Progressive collision repair shops you can take your vehicle to, shops that agree to Progressive’s prices. Even if our auto shop is not on that list, you are well within your rights to bring your vehicle to us, because we’re a properly licensed service provider. Simply drop your car off with us and we’ll handle the rest for you.
Understanding insurance Claims Estimates
Something else to understand about insurance claims is estimates. Even if you stick to your insurance provider’s list of approved auto shops, you may be asked to shop around for estimates until your provider receives an estimate they like. You do not have to submit more than one estimate if you don’t want to. Even if we don’t have the same estimate as Progressive, we’ll honor theirs.
On a related note, uncovering hidden damage during repairs may impact the overall cost. Should we discover such damage, we’ll let Progressive know so they can decide if they want to re-inspect your vehicle.
