We will repair your vehicle to pre-accident condition & repair damage that applies to this claim, any additional repairs will be your responsibility.

Occasionally, in the process of repair we find previous damage to a vehicle unrelated to the accident. In this case we would notify the owner of the vehicle and invite you to come and inspect the previous damage, at this time we would prepare an estimate to repair the previous damage. There are a couple of choices to make at this time, either pay to repair the prior damage, call your insurance company and ask if they will allow another claim to be opened to repair this damage (another deductible will apply), or not fix it at all. Prior damage can obstruct the repairs we are performing and cause the quality of our repair to be compromised.
