Eric Capenos

State Farm is one of the largest insurance companies in America. It provides 83 million policies across the nation. We are honored to be one of its direct auto body repair providers and even more honored to serve you. No matter what kind of collision repair you need, we have the skills and equipment to get the job done. If you were not referred to us by your insurance company, the first line of business is getting it to approve the collision repair costs.

What Affects the Insurance Appraiser’s Decisions

When you drive or tow your vehicle to our shop, we begin our work by assessing the damage. This helps us prepare for the visit of the State Farm appraiser. He or she also reviews the damage to determine whether to fix the car or write it off and cut you a check. Cars are depreciating assets. So, the older your vehicle is, the more likely the appraiser is to simply write it off. 

Our auto body shop can also play a crucial role in whether you get to keep your vehicle or get a new one. Sometimes, the appraiser is on the fence about what to do. In these situations, we may have the opportunity to advocate for your preferred outcome.

How We Assist With the Claims Process

One of the reasons our customers enjoy working with us is that we can take over the entire insurance claims process. This gives them the freedom to focus on recovering from any injuries they sustained in the crash or just get back to their everyday lives. Our body shop is familiar with car insurance companies, like State Farm, and we know how to handle them. In fact, State Farm is one of several car insurance companies we work with directly.

When handling the claims process, know that we advocate on your behalf, not the insurance company. State Farm sends us more collision repair customers and we agree to offer discounted services, but we agree to nothing else. Once you walk through our doors, you become our first priority.
