It’s a fact that insurance companies can be intimidating, and one of the ways they do this is by using scare tactics. Who warranties repairs? If you’ve ever had an accident and need to get your car fixed, you may have been told by your insurance company that if you don’t choose a body shop from their “preferred list,” they won’t warranty or guarantee the repair. But is this true? Let’s get into it.
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that no insurance company warranties repairs. Insurance companies’ main responsibility is to pay for the repair, and that’s all. The responsibility for the actual repair work lies with the collision center that you choose.
The whole issue boils down to the scare tactics that insurance companies use against their customers to take advantage of their lack of knowledge about how they operate. Insurance companies make a lot of money, and they don’t want to lose it. So they use scare tactics to make you think that you have to choose one of their “preferred” shops.
The truth is, when it comes to who warranties repairs, it doesn’t matter whether you choose an insurance company’s “preferred” shop or an independent shop; the collision center that does the work will always warranty the repair. The issue is that if you choose to use one of the insurance company’s “preferred” or “partner” shops, you are significantly more likely to get a rushed or improper repair.
The reason for this is simple: insurance companies promise their “partner” shops more business by way of referrals. But, the partnership only exists if the shops rush the cars through their system and use untested aftermarket or salvaged (used) parts.
This is where RR/C Collision comes in. We will never be a part of any insurance “partner” network. Our customers are our top priority, and we will help them every step of the way to avoid the scare tactics and bullying that insurers use to steer them into a cheaper (and often poorer quality) repair.

It’s important to remember that insurance companies don’t warranty repairs. The responsibility for the actual repair work lies with the collision center that you choose.
