Where do you get a car repair estimate
Depending on your policy, you may need to give your insurance company-specific information on which body shop you're considering for the repairs. Some insurance companies may have a set list of repair shops they can recommend to you.
It is up to you where you get your car repaired. If you have a mechanic that you normally work with, you can choose them to do your repairs. Most insurance companies have repair shops that they work with on a regular basis. Progressive makes it easy to get repairs done with our approved network of shops. We even guarantee your repairs at network shops for as long as you own or lease your car.
By calling your claims rep, you can get the repair process rolling, and schedule repairs wherever you like. Your rep can also help you arrange a rental car if needed. Note: If you're a Progressive policyholder, rental coverage may not apply unless you purchased it before the accident.
