Direct repair allows us to work directly with your insurance company when your car needs repairs. Let’s take a look at the top five direct repair questions we get asked here at Jost Garage.
- What is a direct repair program?
A direct repair program (DRP) is a network of repair shops that are approved by your insurance company. You will have to take your vehicle to one of these approved businesses in order to participate in the direct repair program.
- What are the benefits of taking my car to a DRP approved repair shop?
When your car is in an accident, taking it to a direct repair auto shop makes it possible to have it repaired at a reasonable cost. You are free to get an estimate at a business of your choice if you choose to do so, but you should talk to your insurance agent for more specific information about the program.
- Are direct repair shops reliable?
Your insurance company careful researches and vets auto repair shops before they are chosen to be a part of their direct repair network, so you can be assured that any DRP business is reliable and will do quality work on your vehicle. Your insurance company also offers a lifetime guarantee on work done on your vehicle by a direct repair network collision shop.
- What are generic crash parts?
Generic crash parts are aftermarket auto parts that are produced in the same factories as original equipment manufacturer parts or sometimes by independent companies. They are used in your direct repair to cut down on costs and give you a quality service at a reasonable price.
- Does my insurance require that I participate in a direct repair program?
Every policy is different, so be sure to talk to your insurance agent for specifics.
