Before any repairs for your car start, we’ll first complete an appraisal. It’s a pretty quick process, and we do this to make sure you have a general idea for how much the repairs cost and if applicable, what you may have to pay out of pocket. Here’s a quick primer to help you through this process.
How appraisal is determined
An appraisal is just that—an estimate of the cost involved to repair your vehicle to pre-loss condition. Repair estimates may vary depending on several factors including labor rates, parts, prices and the amount of time necessary to perform certain repairs.
The decision on whether to repair is yours—and it’s OK to not repair
If you don’t own your vehicle—check with your lien holder or leasing company before making a decision. In order to protect their interest, they may require that you repair.
