Some Reasons For The Consent Decree Law

1. Insurance companies colluded with body shops to cut costs on repairs at the consumer’s expense.

2. Insurance preferred DRP shops are not allowed to include any hidden damage on their estimate. If the damage cannot be seen in a photo, regardless if they know it’s damaged or not, they are not allowed to include it.

3. Preferred DRP shops will use imitation parts, and they are trained to tell you those imitation parts are just as good as factory original parts. They are not! Imitation parts may void your factory warranty and decrease the value of your vehicle. Check with your local dealer about factory warranty before using an insurance preferred shop.

4. Preferred DRP shops may help the insurance company swindle you out of what you are rightfully owed in a total loss situation. Find out the value before you settle.
