Auto Repair 101 -- How To Submit An Insurance Claim

Submit an auto insurance claim or pay by yourself?

Some consumers prefer to pay for repairs themselves. Route 22 Auto Body can provide a customer-paid estimate that takes into account the degree and safety of the repairs you would like.

Or, speak with your insurance agent about the extent of damage to your car and the amount of your policy deductible. This should make it easier to decide whether to submit an insurance claim or pay for the repairs yourself. If you decide to submit a claim, here's a list of things to do:

  • Get a claim number from your insurance company and provide it to the body shop.
  • Ask the body shop to provide an estimate directly to your insurance company, referencing the claim number.
  • Allow the insurance company to negotiate with the body shop; you don't need to worry about getting involved in this part of the process.
  • Make sure that the final repair is acceptable.
  • Pay your deductible in full to the body shop.
  • Sign the limited power of attorney for any completed complimentary repairs.
  • Get a copy of your lifetime warranty.
