Information to know when having to repair your vehicle: 

When in an accident with your vehicle You have Rights:
  • You are not required to get more than one estimate.
  • You may have the shop of your choice make the repairs. You are not required to use a shop selected by a claims adjuster/Insurance.
  •  You are required to allow your insurance company a reasonable amount of time to inspect the damages prior to repairing them per any insurance policy.
  • Only the vehicle owner can authorize repairs on the vehicle.
  • Repair estimates will vary by Shop/Insurance. A lower estimate may not include necessary things. It's your vehicle, make sure it's repaired to your satisfaction.
  • The vehicle is being repaired for You, the owner. You will be required to pay for the repairs upon completion. To avoid delays, it will be up to you to secure payment from your insurance company, along with any necessary endorsements from lien holders.

    What to Know about Estimates and Supplementary Estimates:

  • An estimate is an approximation of the cost of repair for the visible damage to the vehicle.  However, as the car is disassembled and in the repair process, additional damage may be revealed.   The oringal estimate will then require a supplementary estimate to be completed.
  • A Supplement is nothing more then  an additional Estimate to cover the cost of labor and/or parts for the newly discovered damage.  At times, several supplements may be necessary to complete repairs to the hidden damage.
  • Supplements are handled by the Auto Body Shop and must be approved by the Insurance company prior to completion.  We, Gifford Auto Body, will negotiate the need for the additional repairs to obtain the supplemental payment and after an agreement is reached, an additional check is issued.


    Always ready to assist you with any of these matters, Gifford Auto Body  will  work closely with all Customers and Insurance companies to minimize inconvenience and maximize  satisfaction.
