FAQ's and Glossary of Terms

Do I have to use the body shop that my insurance company recommended?

 No. In the end, the choice is yours. Boswell Elliff Collision Center has direct repair contracts with many major insurance companies. We do not have to be on your insurance company's direct repair list in order to repair your car. Boswell Elliff works with all insurance companies, and maintains good business relationships with all of their local adjusters, making it easy to complete your repairs and your paperwork.

Do I need to get more than one estimate?

No. You only need to get one estimate at the shop of your choice.

The insurance company estimate is less than your estimate. What do I do?

 If the insurance company has already written an estimate, it is a good starting point for us. The estimate has useful information such as the claim number, a parts list, and the adjuster's contact information. However, many times the insurance company will write an estimate that is conservative, and will wait until your car is at the Boswell Elliff Collision Center and taken apart. Often times, there is hidden damage that cannot be seen until it is dismantled. That is when we contact them to report additional damage and costs.

 The insurance company issued me a check. What do I do with it?

 Hold on to the check until after your car repairs are finished, and bring it with you when you are picking up your car.

Do you use factory paint?

 In general, car manufacturers do not sell paint. The Boswell Elliff Collision Center refinishes cars using Axalta Paints, a waterborne paint system, restoring your car's finish to its original condition. Our paint system is environmentally friendly, reducing the amount of VOCs that are emitted. And it is warranted by the manufacturer for as long as you have your car.

Will my paint match?

 The Boswell Elliff Collision Center uses multiple different methods to match paint. Your car's color code is located on the car. Our painters will input it into their computer, and the computer provides the formula for mixing it. We also employ a spectrophotometer to help match your car's color. Lastly, we tone in our colors by spraying test panels, ensuring that the color matches before we apply it to your car.

Will you use only factory parts for my repairs?

The Boswell Elliff Collision Center would like to use all factory parts for your repairs. However, it's the insurance policy that dictates what types of parts will be used. If the policy states that alternative parts are to be used when they are available, that is how the estimate is prepared. However, you do have the option of requesting that genuine factory parts be installed and paying the price difference.

How long will you have my car?

 The time that the Boswell Elliff Collision Center has your car depends on the extent of damage, and whether or not hidden damage is found once your car is taken apart. To minimize delays, parts are ordered per the preliminary estimate, and received before your car arrives. We also keep in touch throughout the claims process, to let you know how repairs are going and when we think they will be complete.

Have you repaired cars like mine before?

 The Boswell Elliff Collision Center works on all makes and models of cars, sport utilities, and trucks. We are experienced at repairing all makes and models.  All of our technicians are i-Car and ASE certified and attend continuing education classes for the most up-to-date methods and technology advancements.

Can I get a rental while my car is being repaired?

 Yes. . When you are dropping your car for repair, we can call a rental company for you. They will pick you up and shuttle you to their location to pick a car and go over the contract with you.

 Will the insurance company pay for the rental?

 That depends. If you are using your insurance company to have your car repaired, your rental will be paid for, or partially paid for if you purchased rental car coverage with your policy. Your insurance company claim's department can go over details with you.  If you are using the other party's insurance company to have your car repaired, a rental car can be provided while your car is at the Boswell Elliff Collision Center.  Again, ask your claims adjuster for details.
