Auto Insurance FAQs
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.
Who do I call to file a claim?
Reach out to your agent or insurance provider. If someone else is liable for your damages, it's essential to also get in touch with their insurance agent or company. The assigned adjuster will then guide you on any further necessary actions.
What does my policy require me to do after an accident?
Inform your insurance provider about the accident's details, including the time, location, and circumstances of the incident. Provide the names and addresses of individuals injured in the accident as well as any potential witnesses. Collaborate fully with the investigation process. Lastly, acquire or grant authorization for your insurance company to secure necessary documents, medical records, and relevant information.

What People Say About Us
Thank you Alex for doing a tremendous job on my 1988 Corvette. The interior looks like it did when it left the factory over 30 years ago. I will definitely refer you and your company to my friends and look forward to completing the other 3 cars with you as discussed.
I had my headliner cleaned. I have a beige headliner and there were many stains. I was beyond pleased with how clean my headliner is now and how they were able to remove all the stains. The process took about 30 minutes if that. Highly highly recommend Alex detail auto. Will be going back again for a while interior cleaning.
Highly recommend them!! This was a surprise for my wife and she was very impressive. Couldn't even tell this was her car from the inside! There customers service is excellent. Will definitely be going back. Thank you Alex!
I had purchased a new car, and I was so sad because the back seats got stained with different sauces from eating in the car, and my dog was messy. I brought it here for a deep cleaning in November 2021, I figured the stains werent going to come off because it had been months with those stains there. They proved me wrong!! I got my car back without those stains and in a new look condition !! I even got an extra protective layer they offered for a "waterproof" seat. Still to this day my car seats are not as badly stained from my dog paw prints (who steps in snow) as how easily they would get stained!! Reasonable price too! (a small college student affordable luxury ?)
