DEDUCTIBLE AUTO BODY TIP FROM MONTY AT SUPERIOR

WHEN DO YOU PAY YOUR DEDUCTIBLE?

Do you know when you may have to pay your deductible? Monty explains in the video scenarios when you do and don’t have to pay your deductible.

PAY YOUR DEDUCTIBLE

SCENARIO #1

You leave your vehicle in a parking lot and you return to damage. This may include a hail storm or you have been involved in a hit and run with no note left on your vehicle. This scenario you do have to pay the deductible.

SCENARIO #2

If you have been involved in an accident where you are at fault, according to SGI. This scenario you do have to pay the deductible.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY

SCENARIO #1

You have been involved in an accident where you are not at fault and the other person involved is at fault, according to SGI. You do not have to pay your deductible in this scenario.

COMMON EXAMPLE

One situation that happens a lot is when you have been involved in an accident where you are at fault but your vehicle does not have any damage. The other party involved has damage. Do you have to pay for their deductible? No, you do not.

Here is an example: You back up your truck out of your driveway and you hit your neighbour’s vehicle. Your truck has no damage but your neighbour’s vehicle does have damage. You do not need to pay your deductible in this scenario.

WHAT STEPS DO YOU TAKE FOR VEHICLE REPAIR AFTER BEING INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT?


AUTO BODY TIP FROM MONTY AT SUPERIOR AUTO BODY

You’ve been involved in an accident. Now what? Monty explains in the video below the steps to take to repair your vehicle after you have been in an accident.


After you have been in an accident, the first thing you have to do is call SGI. Be ready by having all the information available such as your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and the information from the other party that you were involved with in the accident.

You do not need to book an appointment for your estimate with SGI. Rather you can have the insurance adjuster forward the information to our local team of collision repair experts at Superior Auto Body and we can handle all of your repair needs. When you bring your vehicle to Superior Auto Body in Saskatoon, you receive a FREE courtesy car while your vehicle is in the shop.

AUTO BODY TIP FROM MONTY AT SUPERIOR: SGI WRITE OFF OR VEHICLE REPAIR?


SGI WRITE OFF OR VEHICLE REPAIR? 

A scenario that happens a lot is when customers have been in an accident and they take their vehicle to SGI, SGI will tell them that their vehicle is a write-off. But what if you don’t want your vehicle to be a write-off? Monty explains in the video below what you should do if this happens to you!


If your vehicle is able to have repairs rather than an SGI write off, there are a few things you can do. After speaking with SGI, bring your estimate and your vehicle to Superior Auto Body where their professionals will take a look at the estimate and your vehicle to evaluate what needs to be done. They may be able to lower the cost of the estimate that SGI provided and do the needed repairs at the shop.

SGI VEHICLE REPAIR ESTIMATE PROCESS

Oh no, you have been involved in a collision or auto accident in Saskatoon...now what? 

 

Getting into an auto accident is a scary experience and the moments following are stressful. Obtaining a trustworthy collision repair estimate is a necessary first step toward getting your vehicle fixed and back on the road. Once you do that you can get on with your life Superior is here to help! Monty Heiser, owner Superior AutoBody 

 

If you are an advocate for having the initial vehicle repair estimate done at a preferred auto body shop ( such as Superior Auto Body, an SGI Elite Bodyshop) to avoid any dispute, we recommend the following steps:

 

The insured or whoever was driving at the time of accident needs to call SGI first to report their claim.  See the process and follow the steps by clicking on the image below! 




 

 

Depending upon the circumstances (time of day, type of accident, type of damage), all of which are at SGI’s discretion, the insured can immediately request, while making the report, to have the appraisal done at a preferred auto body shop, whose name needs to be mentioned at the time of report e.g. Superior Auto Body.

Should the request be granted by the adjuster, SGI will email the auto body shop directly with the insured’s details and claim information.

The auto body shop will contact the insured directly to arrange a date and time to do the appraisal.

Generally, it is a better option for the insured to call SGI to make the report and request to have the estimate done at their preferred auto body. This way, they know immediately if that is an option or not. Filing an online claim leaves the insured at SGI’s discretion to determine where to book the appraisal for, which might be at one of SGI’s claim centres, most likely.

Trusted Saskatoon Collision Repair Pros at Superior Auto Body share information about Polymer Degradation Issues

Superior Auto Body has been in business since 1961, and SGI accredited since 1982... There are many reasons they have so many loyal longstanding clients from all over the city, but mostly it is the small, personal touches that they offer to people who have been unfortunate enough to require their services.

Superior Auto Body is a TRUSTED SASKATOON AUTO BODY shop…you will not regret choosing them! In this latest tip they talk about polymer degradation.  

WHAT ARE POLYMER PARTS?

Polymer Degradation Issues on wing mirror

A polymer is basically a part that is made up of a string of molecular components that are similar; in other words, plastic, rubber, vinyl, and the like.  When we talk about a vehicle, polymer parts are just about anything that isn’t made out of metal. If you take a look at your vehicle, you probably see polymer parts immediately.  Many polymer parts aren’t painted, they’re made out of polymer plastic designed to be that particular colour.  The trim around the doors is often a polymer.  There’s likely polymer in the grill, around the windows, and often much of the trim all the way around the vehicle.

In essence, a large part of your vehicle is made of polymers, and those polymers are subject to degradation over time. Unfortunately, Saskatchewan weather can speed that process up!

WHAT IS POLYMER DEGRADATION?


There are two basic ways that items break down.  Most of us are familiar with biodegrading material.  That is how organic matter decomposes.  Anything from paper to food scraps, to wood that isn’t maintained will biodegrade.  But man-made items like plastic and Styrofoam break down through a process called photodegrading.  That is, when they’re exposed to light, the components start to break apart and deteriorate. Polymers used on vehicles can degrade in a few other ways as well.  Exposure to air pollution, such as car exhaust, can cause them to degrade faster.  The same goes with dirt, road grime, and other pollutants that can get onto the polymers. When they degrade, they don’t rot in the sense that we think about food and other organic matter rotting.  Instead, they become brittle.  They may crack, fade, or chip.  They’re not as flexible as they once were, and they certainly aren’t as strong as before.

That fading is especially seen in black polymers.  They turn grey and often people mistake their degradation for having leftover wax that wasn’t buffed out.  That can be the case, but most often, it’s not wax.

cleaning your car prevents polymer degradationHOW CAN YOU PREVENT POLYMER DEGRADATION?

Here is the good news! If you take care of your vehicle, you can slow the polymer degradation as it comes along.  It’s all about taking great care of your vehicle.

  • Keeping your vehicle clean of dust, dirt, tar, and grime is the first step to making sure the polymer parts don’t fall apart faster than you hope.  We recommend regular washes, and make sure you have your vehicle detailed twice every year (at very least once per year!).
  • In addition to the detailing, you will want to use a product designed to protect polymers.  Don’t grab the cheapest cleaner you can find, those will often speed up the degradation rather than prevent it.
