IT’S YOUR CAR, YOUR CHOICE!
Auto Insurance Steering
There have been many changes in the auto insurance and auto body repair industry in recent years, However, one thing that has NOT changed is YOUR CHOICE to have your vehicle repaired at the shop of your choice. If your insurance company has a list of preferred shops and Great Lakes Ford Collision is not on that list, they may try to “steer” you to a shop that is best for them. If they do practice “steering” (insisting, persuading, coercing that you do go to a shop of their choice) please remember IT’S YOUR CAR, YOUR CHOICE!
The purpose of an insurance company “steering” you to a shop of their choosing is in their best interest, not your cars!
Insurance companies will use all kinds of words to steer you, here are some examples:
- They will tell you they cannot guarantee the repairs
- You will have to pay the difference in labor rates
- Your repairs will be delayed.
- You will be led to believe you will be inconvenienced in some way
