IT’S YOUR CHOICE
You have a choice as to which shop will repair your vehicle. If your insurance company sends you to another body shop for an estimate, take your vehicle there to get the estimate, and then bring the estimate to us. We will work directly with their estimate. If you have an estimate from an insurance adjuster, bring that to us as well. Remember, you choose the body shop to repair your vehicle not the insurance company.
What to Do When You Have an Accident?
By: Stephen Bass, Collision Center Manager
•Make sure everyone is all right and call for help if anyone needs it.Always
call 911 if there are injuries.
•Turn off the ignition of all vehicles involved in the accident.
•Call the police, even if the damage appears to be minor. Be sure to get all
important information such as names, drivers license numbers, insurance in-

instructions on how to proceed with your claim. If the other party is at fault,
also call their insurance company.

that hidden damage may not be evident until after tear down.
•Don't authorize any repairs until the insurance company agrees to pay for
the repairs. The shop must have your permission before beginning repairs.
•Choose your repair shop carefully. Improperly repaired collision damage
can decrease the value of your vehicle and make trading it more difficult when
buying a new car. Call Milton Martin Collision Center if you have any ques-
