Fairless Hills, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- Peruzzi Collision Center wants to inform drivers who have recently been involved in an accident about the potential issues with using their insurance's photo estimation app. An investigative report from Inside Edition has found that many insurance companies are using these apps as an excuse to offer lowball payouts on claims, leaving drivers with thousands of dollars in damages to cover out-of-pocket.
Photo estimates are incapable of creating a complete picture of the damage to a car, because an image can only capture so much detail and cannot show damage to the interior of the vehicle. Auto body repair shop owners are frustrated with this new photo estimate process—Robert Jesberger, owner of Mid-Island Collision in Long Island NY, called photo estimates an excuse for insurance providers to offer "low-ball photo estimates" to their customers that can be thousands of dollars lower than the actual cost of repairs.
Peruzzi Collision Center advises that the best way for local drivers to protect themselves is to visit a professional auto body repair shop in Bensalem, PA before cashing any check from the insurance company. This will allow a qualified collision expert to take a look at the vehicle and thoroughly assess the damage, so drivers can make sure that their insurance company isn't cheating them with an offer that won't cover the complete cost of repairs.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about how to ensure that they are receiving a fair estimate from their insurance claim or who would like to schedule an appointment for collision repair in Bensalem, PA is encouraged to contact the team at Peruzzi Collision Center today by calling 215-375-7929.
