Commonly Asked Questions

A:

We fully understand all your concerns associated with vehicle repair costs. Our dealership works with numerous insurance providers across the nation. Our primary goal is to return your vehicle to its pre-existing condition as soon as possible. Every vehicle repair is processed on a case-by-case approach.

We put a heavy emphasis on our transparent pricing. Our certified technicians must disassemble your vehicle to understand the costs and length of repairs which allows us to eliminate a “guestimate” resolution. We will have the solution and repair process laid out entirely 24-48 hours after everything has been communicated with our estimators. Your estimator will then be able to advise you of the total cost as well as the timeframe needed to complete the repairs.

Being without your vehicle for an extended period of time is an inconvenient situation and we prioritize getting it back to you in the least possible amount of time.

A:

Your deductible is a part of your service that your insurance company will pay for. Your insurance company is the only entity authorized to waive your deductible. In many states, when the term “waive deductible” is determined, they are leaving a portion out of the repair process and not informing the customer directly. This allows them to “make up” for the amount that is covered.

Transparency is our number one objective at Champion Auto Body Shop of Howell. Customers have his or her own decision to make about their vehicle’s repair. We want to offer transparency to help you make the best decision for you and your vehicle. There are insurance companies that are willing to offer an appearance allowance on minor cosmetic imperfections. The amount of the given allowance varies based on the cost of the parts and severity of the affected area of your vehicle. The money may be put towards your deductible amount if the customer finds themselves satisfied with the finish and fit the part in “as-in” condition.

A:

We accept all vehicles at Champion Auto Body Shop of Howell, regardless if we are your pre-approved partner or not. Fortunately, we are able to work with all insurance companies. Within the Michigan State Law, there is a clause that doesn’t allow insurance companies from “steering” customers to specific repair facilities. This allows you to choose a repair facility you trust within any proximity you choose.

A:

Champion Auto Body Shop of Howell takes pride in our transparent pricing. If you happen to be shopping around to different repair facilities, you may find a different facility provides a much lower estimate for your vehicle’s repair. Those estimates do not include costs after the repair.
