Insurance steering. Be careful of Insurance steering you to their Network shops.
When you have the stress of being involved in an accident, please take your time in making your decision which repair shop is best suited for you.. Don't let the insurance scare you in making your decision. They may say only our network shop offers lifetime warranty, or they may say other shops may charge you additional for hidden damages.
Just say I will think about your recommended shops and get back with you. Get on the internet, research shops in your area, Once you find one Log on to the BBB in you local area and find out about the shop you have chosen.... If they meet all the criteria of what you are looking for in a shop. Then call your insurance and tell them you have a shop of choice. Good luck... MIke
