HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING AN ESTIMATE ON MY DAMAGES?
There is more then one answer to this question depending on your situation.
If you are not using insurance just call us to set up a time that works best for you.
If you are going through insurance when you open the claim ask them what their policy on estimates is . Very often they will require an adjustor from their company to inspect your vehicle. They may need to write you their own estimate and pay based on their estimate (Gieko, Progressive, Allstate are a few that work this way). If this is the case we can get the estimate either from you or them directly and start the repairs based on their estimate not ours. If this is their policy and the estimate is not complete or we find additional hidden damage once your vehicle is in the shop then at that point we can do what is called a supplement. They are still required to cover the additional costs and we will work directly with them to make that happen.
There are several insurance companies that we work directly with (Ameriprise, Farmers, AAA and a few others), for these companies all we need to do is contact them to send us an assignment so we can send them directly our estimate and photos. In this case just call us to set up a time that works best for you to come in so we can take a look at your vehicle.
If you are unsure of your insurance companies policy we would be happy to contact them to find out how they want us to proceed. Something import to understand is that in most cases a body shop handing you a paper estimate will not get an insurance company to pay. Ultimately we want to help you get your vehicle repaired so we just need to figure out the policy so we can proceed correctly.

The great thing about Rose’s Collision is that we have relationships with several rental car agency’s. We can set up your rental for you.

HOW LONG WILL MY REPAIRS TAKE?
Each vehicle that we service is different. The severity and location of the damages to your vehicle plays a big part. Once we have a preliminary estimate we can give you an estimated time that it will take to complete the repair work to your vehicle. However, keep in mind that the date given is always subject to change, depending upon if once your vehicle is in the shop if we find any additional “hidden damage”.

If it is determined that the frame is bent beyond repair, that section can simply be replaced.

Claim numbers are issued by the insurance company at the time you report the accident.
Just jot the number down and bring it in with you. We will take care of the rest.
