Why Attorneys Want to Use Us?
With literally hundreds of collision repair centers in the metro Phoenix area, why would anyone consider referring their clients to Arizona Collision Center? Some shops have the latest and greatest paint booths, some shops have certified technicians, some shops have ultra-sonic frame/unibody measuring systems, some shops have eco-friendly waterborne paint systems and some shops have manufacturer recommended welding equipment – Arizona Collision Center has all of this and more.
Most shops are in league with insurance companies – the vast majority of shops are on the insurance companies’ “preferred provider lists” – Arizona Collision Center is NOT. While we work with insurers, we work FOR the vehicle owner – there is a huge distinction between the two.
If you’re like most attorneys/law firms, you probably don’t want to deal with the repairs or most other aspects of the property damage revolving around accidents – it’s usually time consuming and while money isn't the only factor, the firm doesn't get anything for the extra service they are asked to provide.
We want to eliminate that. With one telephone call, we can handle the entire claim process with the client, eliminating constant calls to the firm. Let US do the work for you.
Not only do me make it easier for the firm, we will help the client by guiding them through the entire claim process.
We WANT total losses.
If the client’s vehicle is at an insurance company’s storage fee free facility, the insurer has little incentive to settle the claim in a timely manner. Additionally, if the vehicle is at the insurer’s facility the vehicle owner’s bargaining power is greatly reduced.
It’s also known that things tend to happen at insurance company storage lots – vehicle disappear or additional damage is caused while the vehicle is being moved around. Our lot is secure – completely fenced-in with razor wire, locked steel gates and it’s constantly monitored and recorded.
We will not release any vehicle with the consent of the firm. If it’s a serious accident involving substantial bodily injury, we will arrange long term storage – preserving the evidence for potential trial.
We will also provide a comprehensive appraisal of ALL of the damage. Insurance appraisers typically stop writing when the amount reaches the total loss threshold. Usually, they write for the most cosmetic damages first and “overlook” structural damages. We will write ALL of the damage – even if it’s $12,000 on a $2,000 vehicle. Granted, the owner will still only receive $2,000 for the vehicle, but proper documentation of all of the damages can help illustrate the violence of the accident and justify a more significant bodily injury.
When there is a substantial bodily injury claim, law firms often retain an investigator to photograph the vehicle. This additional expense can be eliminated – Arizona Collision Center will also provide detailed photo documentation of the damages as part of our services.
Along with everything else, Arizona Collision Center will arrange for a free preliminary total loss evaluation through Collision Consulting to ensure that the insurer’s settlement offer is fair to the vehicle owner.
Another factor that sets Arizona Collision Center apart from other shops in the valley is the fact that we will inform third-party claimants of their right to recover the loss of value stemming from the accident when applicable.
Most shops are prohibited from mentioning this portion of the claim due to their partnership with the insurance companies. Without these restrictions Arizona Collision Center is free to give the client the whole story, further adding to their recovery and increasing client satisfaction.
If the vehicle owner wishes to pursue a claim for diminished value – with or without enlisting the aid of the firm, Arizona Collision Center will arrange for an inspection and appraisal from Collision Consulting.
