SAN JOSE – Host, Sarah Rutan: After an accident, it is simple to go with a shop that is recommended by your insurance company, but what if you have someone else in mind? Today we’re in San Jose with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Tyson Jasso of Blossom Valley Collision to learn what your rights when it comes to choosing a shop.

Expert Contributor, Tyson Jasso: Did you know you have the right to take your vehicle to the shop of your choice? If you ever have an accident, your insurance company will set you up most likely to go to a shop on their direct repair program that will do the initial inspection, take photographs and forward the appraisal to the insurance company.

At that point, it is not mandatory for you to leave your vehicle to repair at that facility, but again you have the right to go to a shop of your choice. Someone you are more comfortable with, someone you have worked with in the past or someone that is going to give you a better deal for a good quality repair.

Remember, you want to make sure you go to a shop that gives you a lifetime guarantee on the repairs and the paint work as all reputable shops do, but again, remember you have the choice to decide on the repair facility. So, do not be misled and go to a shop you are uncomfortable with. Make the choice yourself.
