The Problem With Photo Estimates

If you are a claimant (not at fault), more than likely,  you’ll be shorted money by using one of these apps.  If you are the insured (at fault), any non-visible, hidden damage will be missed,  and you wont benefit from the full value of your policy.

Simply Put It’s About You

There is a clear choice in the repair of your vehicle. Either you are told where and how your vehicle is repaired by the insurance company, or you choose. There’s a big difference.

Dealership body shops in the Michiana area typically enter into relationships with insurance companies in order to be what is known as a “contracted” or “preferred” shop.  This means they work for the insurance company, not the vehicle’s owner. If your insurance company has an office in a dealership body shop,  the body shop is working for them. Unfortunately for the customer, this means they have no say in the repair of their vehicle.

To reach our goal of 100% customer satisfaction, we’re committed to doing repairs that our customers want. This means Rick’s doesn’t have any agreements or contracts with insurance companies.  We happily work WITH your insurance company,  but we work FOR our customers.
