- If you are having the repairs done through your insurance company, the collision repair process starts with the claim being made. You will be given a claim number which we will need to communicate with the insurance company responsible for paying for the repairs.
- Contact the repair facility for an estimate appointment.(not applicable if the vehicle is towed).
- An initial estimate will be prepared.
- You may be asked to authorize a teardown of the vehicle, which means to remove some damaged parts in order to complete a more thorough repair estimate.
- Once the initial inspection is completed you will need to authorize repairs. We will then set up a repair appointment to begin the repairs to your vehicle.

- As the insured you authorize the repairs. The insurance company will pay for the repair but does not authorize the repair of your vehicle.

- If you are responsible for payment of the repair you will be notified before we go forward with any repairs.
- When the repair is complete you will be notified of when to pick up the vehicle.
- You will receive a Lifetime Guarantee from F. Lofrano & Son Inc.

We work closely with Hertz and Enterprise car rental companies. We will be happy to arrange with either of them to get you into a rental as quickly as possible and back on the road. Many insurance policies include some rental coverage for collision repair claims. Check you policy or with your agent before making arrangements for a rental car.
