An insured customer may take their car to the auto body repair facility of their choice, even if their insurance company has a preferred shop list.
Different paint brands match factory colors differently so paint quality is essential to a perfect match.
If an insurance company declares a vehicle a total loss they may still put in what's called a final bid to the auto body shop and have the car repaired if the customer wishes to save the vehicle.
Contact your insurance company
Contact your insurance company as soon as possible after the collision – check your policy, as some policies require notice within 24 hours. Your insurance company is there to help you deal with the other parties involved in the collision. Some insurance policies provide for a rental car and towing, if needed, so be sure to ask them if in doubt.
