Eco Friendly Auto Body Shop

With inflation on the rise after an accident, a lot of people want to go through there insurance company but do not want to pay the insurance deductible.

For many years now, insurance companies have mislead there customers to believe that an autobody shop saving their deductible was doing something illegal.

 Most insurers relayed this information to their customers so that they could control claim cost’s by sending the insured’s vehicle to a direct repair program shop, picked by the insurer.

These direct repair shops cut secrete deals with the insurance company to charge controlled amounts for repairs as long as the insurer kept feeding them a high volume of jobs.

 After reading this article, you will be one of the few educated consumers that is wise to this conflict of interest.

These direct insurance company repair autobody shops will almost never help there customers with there deductibles, one because they feel that they have so much volume that they don’t need to take good care of there customers.  Two because of the agreement they have made with the insurance company they simply do not have enough profit margin in the job to do so.

 The following are some commonly asked or wondered questions about Auto Repair Shops that Pay Your Deductible For You.

NO! Body shops that want to help there customer out and cover there deductible are free to do so by New York State Law.  Remember this, the body shop only has an obligation to you the customer, not the insurer and can Waive, Save, Pay, discount your deductible.

If you are involved is an accident with your vehicle and you decide to go through your insurance company to have your vehicle repaired, the policy or contract with the insurance company was established with you being responsible for an agreed amount (your deductible). This deductible is a portion of the claim that you will be responsible to pay the body shop.  Usually the higher your Deductible, the lower your premiums will be.

NO.  The deductible is paid directly to the autobody shop that you choose to repair your vehicles body damage.

As a courtesy to our customers, we are almost always able to save you from paying your deductible.  When in doubt just stop in to show us the damage and we can tell you on the spot if the damages on your vehicle qualify to waive your deductible.

Basically, the more damage on you vehicle, the higher the probability is that you wont have to pay the deductible.

We recommend choosing a deductible some where mid range, $500-$1000.  You do not want one that is to high because then if you have small damage on your vehicle, you won’t be covered until the repair cost as surpassed the deductible amount.

If you have a lower deductible, you will have less chance of not having a small damaged claim covered by the insurance company. 

Even, if you have a high deductible, we are able to cover it 99% of the time, without cutting corners on the repairs of youR car, we always use new original parts, never used or aftermarket.

YES. We will use so of our profit margin to cover the cost of your insurance deductible.  East Collision goal is to create the best possible experience for you as our customer.

East Collision Inc deserves more than 5 stars. Paul and his team are extremely helpful and very professional. I highly recommend East Collision. They made the whole process much better than I expected. The turnaround time was quick. I think the owner is genuinely kind and not out there to charge anything more than what it really costs. My impression is that the business is honest and ethical. Strongly recommend! They even detailed the car. Would 10/10 recommend! My car looks immaculate!! This service was amazing and efficient!! This is the only place to go for repairs!!!

Punctured a tire on my drive home, pulled off the next exit and luckily Paul and his crew were there to save the day. They took us right in, patched us up and sent us on our way. Best of all, the patch up job made it the entire 4 hours back home to Mass. with no issues. Highly recommend!

My experience with East Collision was excellent. Paul and his team go out of their way to make sure you get the best quality service. Paul was very professional, he explained in detail the process of repairing my car, in addition handling and communicating with the insurance company. Paul provided transportation so I was be able to go to Enterprise to pick up my rental car. Also, getting and receiving updates on my car progress was very simple and painless. Overall, everything was seamless and I am very satisfied with the results of my car.I would highly recommend East Collision they are a 10 out of 10!!!!!!

Paul and his team are beyond amazing. My car was hit while parked by a drunk driver that left the scene. I was super stressed as you could imagine. I went to East collision and spoke to Paul he was empathetic and very helpful. He made the process as stress-free as possible. He took care of all the paperwork and constantly kept me informed of what was going on with my car. In the end, I was very happy with the work they did on my car it looked brand new!!! I recommend this collision shop to everyone!!

I'm so happy I decided to bring my car to East Collisons. This was a great experience. The owner Paul is great. He kept his word and worked with me through my situation. My car looks flawless, just like when I brought it. I highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed.
Can’t overstate how happy and satisfied I am with East Coast collision. I bought my Jeep with moderate damage.The work these guys did , when I came to pick up my Jeep it looked brand spanking new! Can’t say thanks enough.

I would absolutely offer more than 5 stars if that was an option. First and foremost, I was involved in a hit-and-run. Another car hit the driver side of the car and drove off, leaving the headlight/front lamp cracked, the Hyundai Elantra's front corner of the bumper were broken off, and the front fender had a dent in it and paint chipped off, which caused the driver door to make noises whenever I opened and closed it. Nevertheless, I found this place and contacted Paul right away. Our communication flowed quickly and effectively, and Paul was helpful throughout the entire process including taking care of any insurance-related matters, given the stressful nature of the case and the fact that I was located all the way in Brooklyn, a pick-up was arranged for the car. The team performed a fantastic job fixing the car, and it returned looking as good as new when it left the lot. We had a prior issue with the third break light being burnt out and that was fixed as well! We are extremely happy and pleased to have our car back in such excellent condition, it looks better than ever! Paul and his crew are to be recommended thank you so much, and we appreciate you.
