File A Claim -1
If you are insured and file a claim, then your insurance policy may allow for the use of aftermarket and/or used parts. Be sure to ask your body shops recommendation on the use of those parts. If you are 3rd party to a claim, there is NO law stating what type of parts that can be used.
Choose YOUR Repair Shop
You should ask friends, relatives, and colleagues as to who will do the BEST job and provide the BEST service. Do NOT leave this decision in the hands of the insurance company based on price! Are all shops alike? Absolutely NOT!
