Know Your Rights
Dealing with the stress of a collision is hard enough without trying to figure out how your accident insurance works. Here are some answers to frequently-asked questions about insurance policies.
Will the insurance company guarantee your work?
We guarantee our own work, but the insurance company does not have the legal right to guarantee a third party's work.
Who pays for repairs?
It depends on the circumstances. If you were at fault, but have comprehensive or collision insurance, the insurance company would pay the costs minus your deductible. If the other party was at fault, their insurance company should pay.
Do I have to accept the insurance company's appraisal of damage?
No. Check the "Appraisal Clause" in your policy if you have differences with their appraisal. It allows you and the insurance company to gather an opinion from an appraiser you both agree upon, or a third-party "Umpire" if you cannot agree.
Do I have the right to a rental car?
If you have purchased rental car coverage and were not responsible for the accident, you may seek reimbursement from the insurance company or, if another driver was responsible for the accident, their insurance company.
If you do not have rental car coverage and were responsible for the accident, you have no grounds to ask for reimbursement. If the other driver was liable, you can generally seek reimbursement from their insurance company.

What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
I bought a used Jeep Liberty and during the 3 months I owned it the battery went dead intermittently 3 times and developed other electrical issues with the dome light, lock switch, and mirror controls. Tech Center Auto had my vehicle for 3 days and Greg gave me regular updates on the status (which was greatly appreciated). They found the issue and repaired it in less than a week and at a VERY reasonable price. These guys are good, and the reviews and references I received were backed up by their work!!
I highly recommend Greg and his team at Tech Center Auto. They service all our fleet vehicles and my personal cars. They are always accommodating, honest and very fair from a price stand point. If you are looking for an experienced garage look no further.
