Collision FAQ

Our shop stands ready to assist you in any of these matters. We will work closely with you to minimize your inconvenience and maximize your satisfaction. This is our pledge to you.

What should I do after I’m in an accident?

1. Determine if the vehicle can be driven safely or must be towed. If it must be towed, be sure to remove all keys (except for the vehicle), cell phone, adaptors, chargers, garage door opener, and any other valuables from the car.

2. Choose Traverse Body and Paint Center as your auto repair specialist. Call us at (231) 929-0744 or email us for an appointment, or stop by from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through Friday to start the process of repairing your vehicle.

3. Call your insurance company representative as soon as possible. Delays can lead to the denial of your claim. Inform them of the accident and your plans for the car, including where it is located. If you prefer, come in and we will contact your insurance company for you. Either way, they will have some questions for you about the accident.

4. We will estimate the repairs using our 30 years of experience in the auto body business. Some insurance companies accept our estimate as is and we can begin work as soon as possible. Some companies require contact with their claims adjuster. If so, we will begin work as soon as the claim is approved.

Did you know?

Some insurance companies will request more than one estimate, but legally you are not required to do so.
You are not required to use a shop selected by a claims adjuster, but insurance companies must be allowed enough time to inspect damages before approving a claim.

The owner of the vehicle is the only person who can authorize work on the vehicle and you have a say in what parts are being installed (factory replacement or aftermarket parts).

If any hidden damage is discovered, we can address this with your adjuster and request a supplement.

5. What about a loaner?
While your car is in our care, we will supply a rental vehicle for your use. Most insurance companies will cover this cost.

6. Rest easy knowing you’ve come to the right place.

Check out this great testimonial from a client. They say a happy wife makes a happy life! "My wife loves her 1997 S-10 Blazer. The rear bumper was dinged and the bottom part of the rocker panels was finally giving in to Michigan winters after 9 years. Daryl and crew replaced and color matched the painted bumper, repaired the beginning rust and covered the vulnerable area with a special textured paint that resists pebbles and salty muck so it isn't as likely to rust. She's happy with her Blazer again. Great work!" - Jeff B. ... See MoreSee Less

We live in a great community full of people that come together and help each other, when help is needed. We need your help to find a couple of individuals that feel the need to steal from us. They are also stealing from our neighbors, and we do not want them to go any further. It seems that these individuals are underestimating our community, and what we are capable of. Do you recognize these people? Please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. #strengthinnumbers #keepourcommunitysafe
