What is the Process for Claim Repairs?

The process to repair your vehicle when you file a claim is simple, and we take care of your claim so that you don’t have to worry about it. We work with your insurance to create an estimate and cover your repairs, whether you’re insured through ICBC Valet shop or you have private insurance. Below is the process for your auto insurance claim and car body repairs:

  • Report Your Claim – After reporting your claim, you’ll get a claim number from your insurance provider. We need the claim number before we can provide an estimate on the repairs your vehicle needs. You can call us or stop by our facility to give us the claim number.
  • Get a Repair Estimate – Once we’ve received your claim number, the next step to perform an inspection of your vehicle. We check all the dings, dents, and other damage and separate the issues related to the incident from those not related. We’ll explain the repair process step-by-step, photograph the damage, and collaborate with your insurance provider to ensure they approve the repairs. After that, we’ll provide an estimate.
  • Drop Off Your Vehicle – On your appointment day, we can arrange a courtesy vehicle, so you can still run errands, go to work, and get around town. You’ll have a full tank of gas when you receive the courtesy vehicle, and we ask that you fill the tank before returning it.
  • We Perform Your Repairs – Once we have your vehicle in the collision center, we’ll disassemble it to reevaluate the damage. If we find more damage than we noted in the estimate, we’ll write and submit a supplement report for any additional parts or work and update you on any changes. After we finish the repairs, we’ll contact you for the final inspection so that you can take your car home.
