What To Do After an Auto Claim

1) Call your insurance company and file a claim first.

• Your insurance provider will walk you through the claims process. Write down your claim number and ask your insurance provider how soon they can get an adjustor to inspect your vehicle. Remember, your insurance rates will NOT increase after you file a claim due to storm damage or other natural disasters. Everyone in your zipcode and surrounding areas will be filing claims as well, so don’t be the last one!


2) Your insurance provider will schedule an appointment for an adjustor to inspect your vehicle.

• The adjustor will prepare an estimate, provide you with a copy, and suggest places you can take your vehicle for repair. Remember, you have the right to choose who repairs your vehicle. Your insurance provider will encourage you to use a “Direct Repair Facility”. Direct Repair Facilities are not allowed to waive your deductible due to various agreements they have with your insurance provider. Direct Repair Facilities often resort directly to “conventional repair” methods versus paintless dent repair as well. Conventional repair is invasive and requires panels such as your roof to be cut off your vehicle. This can leave the structural integrity of your vehicle in jeopardy and can leave you without your vehicle for extended periods of time as well.


3) Call Dent Teks to Schedule An Appointment.

4) Dent Teks will provide you with a rental car even if you do not have rental coverage through your insurance provider.
