Brian, like others said your entitled to have the car repaired the right way. If they still do a shit job or Allstate tells you to fuck off, then file a claim with your insurance company. A lot of people dont know this, but you are allowed to take your car to the body shop of your choice, not who they tell you to. Too many people go where the insurance tells them too, thinking the claim will get denied if they dont. Thats total bullshit! I know this from when my car was hit while parked, the guys insurance told me I had to go to there shop, so I called my agent and he said B.S. go where I want and if they dont pay, then my insurance would pay and sue them for the extra dough. They paid!

x2 approved just basically makes it faster and that they can give you a qoute on site instead of an adjuster coming out. I never use 'approved' shops...

The problem with "approved" shops is that they pretty much get a set price on insurance work. So very rarely do they take that extra step, or take pride in the work because of that. Now if you were a cash paying customer you might get a little better work out of a shop.

Shawn.. as this is what I do for a living, I have to correct you .

There are good shops & bad shops for sure. Just because they are "approved" does not mean that they take a cut rate price & do a cut rate job ,because of insurance or cash pay.

most shop now give a lifetime warranty on workmanship.

most high profile Insurance companys will align them self with quality shops.

and back their shops repairs & if repairs are not to the customers satisfaction , the company will do what they need to do to make sure the customer is happy. unless the customer is just out of line.

and no I don't work the the above mentioned company

Paul, I know what you are saying and I understand it. But if your in the business, then you should agree that there are quite a few shops that do shit work and these are "approved" shops. I think I was mis understood in my above post. What I meant is going to an "approved" shop you are not going to get the same work as if you went to a "custom" shop, which Brian is entitled to. Imo, these shops that do insurance work just dont take as much pride in the work as a custom shop would. These guys in the "approved" shops are trying to make as much money as fast as possible. That means get in in and get it done asap! Now if you know someone at an approved shop, then it may be a different story. When I worked at Ziebart, we had quite a few body shop accounts, and I personally know guys that own body shops. So what I said about get it in and done asap comes right from the horses mouth.

Under no circumstances should you ever let a horse do any kind of body work on your car. They have hooves and can't grip tools and they aren't smart enough to really pay attention to what they are doing. I'm not knocking them, I just say bodywork is not their thing. Pulling a cart; now that's where they shine!

Agree. Very Happy

Shops are in business to make money. they are production shops. I have personaly managed several shops in Chicago & NW Indiana. (since the mid 80's affraid ) affraid . you have good body men (persons) and hacks.

good shops that take pride & Hack shops. some of both are "approved" I would put the pressure on the Insurance Company that puts the stamp of approval to screen the good from the bad.

If that insurance company reffers a person to one of their "approved shops " they better be ready to resolve any issues a customer may have in a timely manner with out any runaround.


On the choice of shops- The owner of the car has the final choice on who repairs their car - The Insurance company can not force anyone to go to an "approved" shop. They can suggest & empower the owner on warrantys they have with a shop . which may or maynot matter as most all High end shop warranty their work as long at the customer owns the car.

so I guess we are in agreement
