Choose the shop of your choice

As the owner of a motor vehicle damaged in an accident, you have the right to choose the shop where you wish to have your vehicle repaired.

Do I need more than one estimate?

No. Do not waste your time or that of several shops getting estimates. Select a repair facility that you feel comfortable with, then notify your agent or insurance company, or ask the shop to make the call on your behalf. Your appraiser may have to inspect the damage. This can be done at the shop of your choice.

Is the work guaranteed?

Yes. At Carl Amato Collision our work is 100% guaranteed.

NEVER drive a vehicle that could be unsafeĀ  because of damages.

  1. BY LAW, you are not required to obtain more than one damage report (estimate).
  2. SOME INSURANCE COMPANIES may want you to visit their drive-in claims center before having your vehicale repaired. You can do this, or you may leave your vehicle at our facility and request that the insurance company inspect it here.
  3. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT to choose the repair facility of your choice. This right is guaranteed you under Section 2610 of the New York State Insurance Law. (see top of web page).
  4. BE CAUTIOUS if your insurance company tries to pick a repair shop for you. In most cases insurance company referral shops offer discounts to the insurance company in order to be on their list. Could this mean discount quality for you?
