INSURANCE QUESTIONS

Know Your Rights

Dealing with the stress of a collision is hard enough without trying to figure out how your accident insurance works. Here are some answers to frequently-asked questions about insurance policies.

Will the insurance company guarantee your work?

We guarantee our own work, but the insurance company does not have the legal right to guarantee a third party's work.

Who pays for repairs?

It depends on the circumstances. If you were at fault, but have comprehensive or collision insurance, the insurance company would pay the costs minus your deductible. If the other party was at fault, their insurance company should pay.

Do I have to accept the insurance company's appraisal of damage?

No. Check the "Appraisal Clause" in your policy if you have differences with their appraisal. It allows you and the insurance company to gather an opinion from an appraiser you both agree upon, or a third-party "Umpire" if you cannot agree.

Do I have the right to a rental car?

If you have purchased rental car coverage and were not responsible for the accident, you may seek reimbursement from the insurance company or, if another driver was responsible for the accident, their insurance company.

If you do not have rental car coverage and were responsible for the accident, you have no grounds to ask for reimbursement. If the other driver was liable, you can generally seek reimbursement from their insurance company.

    Last year we had to leave our son's vehicle in Michigan. In early July 2021 we were finally able to return to get the car. Since it had sat for months and not driven we had to find a local mechanic to thoroughly assess the car. Mr. Chuck and the technicians provided an excellent job. I was provided a frequent report of the car needs and cost for the three days of service. I was truly blessed to locate this auto mechanic service being far from my home and cannot thank them enough for the fair and quality service received. Also, Mr. Chuck even phoned to check on the vehicle and to find out if we returned home safely.

    Even though I live much closer to many other auto repairs shops, I have taken my car to Chuck at Al Dean's a few times now because he is helpful, friendly and stands by his quote after diagnosing the problem. My brother is a former auto mechanic and lives near the shop and has always relied on Chuck and his employees, who my brother says are honest and knowledgeable, which are both what I need after many other shops taking advantage of my ignorance of cars and their needs. I will go back to this shop again with trust and assurance.

    My Chevy Silverado brake line rusted out on Sat. just after 1 pm. I called the shop and did not leave a message because they close at that time. The owner still returned my call around 3 pm. I told him my issues and he said he could work on it Monday. They replaced my brake lines for the price he quoted, even though an extra part was needed. They also threw in a tire rotation and a cash discount. The owner is nice man to talk with and deliverers what he promises. This is not the first time I used them for repairs, because they do what they say for an honest price, with a smile. I will be back the next time I need repairs.

    These guys are great. I've had more than a few repairs done here, and never had any problems with the cost or the service. In most cases I already had the replacement part, and the labor charge was very reasonable for the level of quality from the mechanic. After a few visits, the boss recognizes me and still waves anytime I see him out front. This is a shop that I refer everyone in town to. Even if you're in southern Rochester or east side Pontiac, it's worth the trip to have the job done right.
