Yes. Mr. B’s will work for you to insure that your vehicle is repaired back to pre-accident condition alongside all insurance companies. Mr. B’s will help you in deciding on what parts and procedures to repair your vehicle (except safety decisions, which are solely Mr. B’s) along side an adjuster from the insurance company. We work for you, not them.
Perhaps. If you were in a collision, most likely your insurance rate will be impacted as a result. If the damage to your car is a result of hail, fire, flood, vandalism, or some other comprehensive damage claim, your insurance rate will NOT be affected (unless you have a history of frequent comprehensive claims).
No. Your deductible amount is an agreement between you, the policyholder, and your insurance company and represents the portion of a claim that you have agreed to pay. Steer clear of any repair shop that claims it can save your deductible as that is fraud. Such a shop will bill your insurance company for a repair they didn’t perform in order to recoup the money. If they are willing to commit insurance fraud, how can you be sure they repaired your car to manufacturer’s specification?
The average repair at Mr. B’s takes between 3 and 5 days depending on the amount of damage and the availability of parts. Small jobs (mirror replacement, windshield repair/replacement, alignments, bumper replacement) can take as little as one day. Some repairs will take longer depending on parts and insurance company. When we give you an estimate, we will tell you exactly how long your repair will take.
Typically, if the repairs needed exceed 80% of the current market value of the car, your insurance company will usually declare the vehicle a total loss. That percentage can vary from one insurance company to another, so be sure to verify the percentage with your insurance company.
