I was hit by a distracted driver while I was riding my motorcycle, the accident wasn’t serious and although my bike isn’t totaled it did sustain some damage. The insurance adjuster came to look at my bike and give me a quote for the amount of repair it would need. He also recommended an auto shop, should I go to the place he recommended?
Probably not. The adjuster is likely telling you to go to a shop where they have a good relationship with the insurance company. While this sounds good, what this could actually mean is that the body shop can give low estimates and in return the insurance company will refer all work to them, and this can lead to a low quality of work from the shop. But if you get your car back and it wasn’t repaired properly and they didn’t do a good job it will be nearly impossible to get the insurance company to pay for the work to be fixed elsewhere.
