I have my car rear ended in a parking lot. There isn’t a lot of damage but a good size dent. The other parties insurance company contacted me and I’m suppost to meet with a guy today to give me a damage estimate on my vehicle. They told me I could pick any body shop i wanted to get the car fixed. How long will it take him to look over my vehicle and give me the check to get it fixed?

    usually the adjuster will tell you the estimate they give for the damage then you get a check with in a depends on the agency that is paying you for the should take your car to a few different body shops and get estimates and then tell the others insurance company the estimate you got.usually other insurance will go the cheapest route.

    It depends…

    What happened to me was I took my car to the body shop and had the check sent there. I was only out of a car for 3 days!

    Good Luck

    they are usually pretty quick about it. I have had an estimate done and work begin within 24 hours. They did not give me the check though. It went straight to the repair shop.
