‘LOSS OF USE’ INSURANCE COVERAGE
Make sure you have “loss of use” coverage on your insurance policy. (S.E.F. 20).
This pays for a rental replacement vehicle when you make an insurance claim. The cost is minimal. Call your agent to inquire.
If you have any questions regarding this or any other repair issues feel free to contact us!
That just doesn’t make any sense. Lakewood knows your vehicle best and we have the parts. According to the law you have the right to choose your repair shop and the insurance company is required to inform you of that. Bring it back to your dealership. Do it right.
Lakewood guarantees our work for as long as you own the vehicle. What is wrong with the shop they are sending you to? Does the insurance company have to guarantee the work because the shop won’t? If the shop will then the insurance company is deceiving you. Why guarantee the work of a shop that guarantees it’s work? Insurance double speak?
They can fix their own cars at their preferred shop, you fix yours at your preferred shop Lakewood Autobody & Collision Centre. If there is a disagreement do you want the shop on the insurance company’s side or on your side? We work for you, the preferred shop works for the insurance company! The law says it is your right to choose the repair facility.
We repair your vehicle as per the insurance company’s estimate just like any other body shop.
Just call us and we will match any “incentives” your insurance company is offering to get you to go to their preferred shop. Is it worth it if you end up with non-GM parts and a compromised warranty?
GM does NOT warranty any non-GM parts. If your vehicle is still covered by Factory Warranty I recommend you use only new OEM GM parts for any auto body repairs. Keep your GM a GM!
“Quality Replacement” or “Aftermarket” parts are cheaper and often don’t fit as well. It is easy for the insurance company to say they are just as good, they don’t have to install them or modify them to fit.
