Many car insurance companies have preferred auto body shop companies, these shops make agreements with insurance companies in accordance with state laws to contract work and direct payments. If you are involved in a car accident and your car needs repairing, stop in to Bernelis Garage to see if we can work with your insurance provider and save you money!
Car accidents can be a stressful, traumatic, and difficult process, but Bernelis Garage wants to make sure the repair process is simple and stress free! Being without a car can be an inconvenience, which is why we assure fast turnaround times so you can get back to your daily life with ease.
Collision repair begins with an inspection of the vehicle. The results of the inspection are documented, photos of the vehicle are taken, and the information is passed on to your insurance company and/or provided to you. We then will input the information into our computer estimate system that provides a detailed FREE estimate of your repairs.

It is not necessary, but it is a good idea to call ahead of time to make sure one of our licensed technicians are available.
Choosing a repair shop after an accident should be weighed out carefully. You have the right to choose any body shop for your collision repair. As long as the body shop like Bernelis Garage is willing to work with your insurance agency, you can go to ANYONE. Although it may seem easiest to go with the one recommended it may not always be the best option. Choose a facility you can trust like us!
NO! This is another tactic used by some insurance companies to steer you to the direction of their preferred body shops. The rates body shops charge are set by the auto insurance industry. Bernelis Garage offers FREE ESTIMATES on repairs to let you know what/if there would be any out of pocket cost for you.
