In their latest tip they explain the SGI Collision Repair Process they follow at Superior Auto Body!



After filing your claim, we need to appraise your vehicle to find out how bad the damage is and prepare a damage estimate.

The damage estimate can be completed at either an:

Accredited repair shop (if eligible)

Once the damage estimate is done, you’ll get a printout with the cost of repairs for your vehicle. Your claims adjuster will need to confirm your insurance coverage before you can have the vehicle fixed.


We’ll tell you if you’re considered responsible for the collision and then finalize the claim. See Determining responsibility for details.


If your vehicle can’t be repaired, your adjuster will let you know the process for a total loss vehicle.


Once the damage estimate is done, you’ll get a copy of the estimate outlining the cost of repairs for your vehicle. If you’re responsible for paying your deductible or any other costs, it will be listed on the estimate. You can contact your adjuster with any questions you have about these costs.

Repairs must be finalized within 2 years from the date of the collision. It’s a good idea to complete repairs as soon as possible to avoid any deterioration or further damage to the vehicle. Have damage to headlights, tail lights, tires, wheels, etc., fixed as soon as possible. Also, some types of damage can make your vehicle unsafe or less safe to drive.

See details on Damage repair and parts page.


The cost of a rental vehicle is covered if:

  • You’re not responsible for the collision and you need a replacement vehicle, providing the responsible driver has insurance coverage.
  • You have extra auto insurance coverage. Talk to your insurance broker for the details of your coverage or refer to your policy cover page.


Once your vehicle has been repaired, the team at Superior Auto Body will ask you to sign a Certificate of Repairs form. This form signifies that you’re satisfied with the repairs and authorizes us to pay the body shop.

Here they share a tip on why there is long waiting lists:


A rash of collisions that have led to lengthy waiting lists at Saskatoon auto body shops could be caused by the amount of snow that has fallen, says a senior climatologist with Environment Canada.

'Our speeds are increased and so therefore we see more and more accidents.'- David Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada

It hasn't snowed much, David Phillips said, but the number of snowfall days is significant. Parts of Saskatchewan have seen 1/3 less snow than last year, but it has snowed 17 days in November and December. That's one more snowfall day than last year.

When you get a large snowfall, Phillips said, people tend to slow down and drive with caution.

"Now take the other kind of scenario," he said. "You just get a little bit of snow, a skiff of snow — one cm here, two cm there — we drive at summer speeds. It's like there's no risk, you know, we just see a little skiff, a dusting of snow. Our speeds are increased and so, therefore, we see more and more accidents. So sometimes we need to be reminded of the season we're in and big dumps of snow do that."

The Saskatoon police traffic unit said they have seen a four per cent increase in collisions since last year. As of December 19, there were 500 more collisions than there were at the same time last year.

Phillips also said the cold air would cause more black ice on the surface of streets. The City of Saskatoon has been reminding drivers to slow down because the extreme cold can lead to icy road conditions, especially at temperatures when sand and salt doesn't stick.

Hundreds of people on auto body shop waiting list

Val Welygan is seeing the results, whether the weather is causing the collisions or not. The co-owner of Novakoski Quality Collision is booked up for a few weeks.

"It would be in the hundreds of people and most shops we talked to -- all other body shops -- most shops are in the hundreds of people waiting to get into their businesses," she said, adding that her shop can get through 35 cars per week.

"Our guys work really hard, long hours, trying to get everybody back on the road as soon as possible"

Doug Giordano, manager at Speedy Collision Repair and Auto Painting, said his crew plans to work through the Christmas holidays to manage the demand for auto bodywork.

"I love it," Giordano said. "I look outside, this morning it was snowing, I am smiling. I hear a car accident and it puts a smile on my face. I know it shouldn't but it does."

Debra Newnham said she expects to wait at least five weeks for parts for her banged-up Mitsubishi. She hit a curb to avoid smashing into a car on icy roads earlier this month.

"There's nothing I could have changed," Newnham said. "Icy conditions are icy conditions. And it is not like I didn't see it happening. My quickest reaction was to try and avoid the rear end."
