Direct Repair Programs
Direct repair insurance companies:
- State Farm
Once the repair process have been initiated we then become a full service repairer for these insurance companies. That basically means that you do not have to wait for a adjuster to be dispatched out to write and assess your claim. We take the photos, write the estimate, and bill the insurance companies direct. It streamlines the whole process.
open shop companies:
- Direct General
Whenever you call to report the claim to your insurance company and tell them that you want to use Sides Auto Body. Next, the insurance company sends us what is called a "Open Shop Assignment". That basically then streamlines the process and allows us to handle it the same way as the "Direct Repair Insurance Company" process as above.
adjuster estimating companies:
This means that after you call to file the insurance claim you then have to wait to be contacted by your adjuster from your insurance. They will then setup a time and date to inspect your vehicle damages. Next, you will need to bring the estimate and any documentation from their appraisal to us for us to order parts and begin the repair process.
*with any other miscellaneous insurance companies please call your agent or us to find out how to proceed with the repairs, and how to proceed with the repair process.
