Receiving an Estimate

Schneider Auto Karosserie understands that a car accident can cause confusion, anxiety, and frustration – especially as you begin the claims process with your insurance company and seek out vehicle repair.

We are here to help.

After reporting your accident to your insurance agent, you will want to get an estimate for the costs of the repairs and the time required to get your vehicle back to pre-accident condition.

Follow these helpful steps:

  1.   Choose your collision shop

You get to choose who repairs your vehicle.

Your insurance company can (and likely will) provide recommendations but ultimately, the choice is yours. Follow up, read reviews, contact friends, and ask the mechanics you already trust.

  1.      Drop in or make an appointment for an estimate

Call us (801)-484-9400.  Schneider Auto is open for business 8:30-5:30, M-F and has an estimator at the ready to greet you. You can also contact us online by sending your vehicle info, damage, and photos for a free estimate at: http://www.schneiderauto.net/estimates/

There is no law that requires you to get more than one estimate.

In the past, many insurers have required that you receive more than one estimate.

  1.      Getting an estimate

One of our estimators will discuss the damage with you, take photos, assess damage, and hand you a preliminary estimate. Also included is a timeline for the repairs, and we can discuss convenient dates for you to drop off your vehicle. We also provide shuttle service to help get you to and from our shop whenever possible.

  1.      Making a claim

If you haven’t already, initiate a claim. Once initiated, we can take over and make it as easy as possible for you and your family. Please call us if any pieces of the claims process seem confusing. As you know, we are here to help.

  1.      Bringing your vehicle in

Vehicle repair and making customers happy is our business. On your scheduled drop-off day, feel confident about leaving your car in the hands of one of our representatives. We also provide shuttle service to help you get to and from our shop (within reason!).
