Frequently Asked Questions


10 Things To Know Before Having Your Vehicle Repaired: Your vehicle is likely the second largest investment you're likely to make, so preserve its value and your safety by having it repaired professionally at Gurley Leep Collision Express Centers.


  1. Never drive a vehicle that could be unsafe because of damages. We will gladly arrange for a tow to a Gurley Leep Collision Express Center.
  2. Some insurance companies may want you to visit their drive-in claims center before having your vehicle repaired. You can do this, or you may leave your vehicle at our location and ask that the insurance company come to inspect the car while here. Gurley Leep Collision Express Centers work closely with all of the major insurance companies and we keep close communication with insurance companies to advise them of all work and repairs that need to be done to our customer's vehicle.
  3. As a consumer, it's nice to know that there is NO LAW that requires you to get more than one estimate or appraisal on your vehicle. You have the right to get as many comparison estimates as you'd like in order to help you make an informed decision about your collision repair options.
  4. You have the right to take your vehicle to the collision repair center of your choice. Your insurance company cannot require you to go to a particular shop. Your insurance company usually can recommend a reputable repair center in your area, including Gurley Leep Collision Express Centers.
  5. Differences in repair estimates are common. A lower estimate may not include all necessary work. If you're not sure why one estimate is different from another you've received, just ask a friendly advisor at one of our locations.
  6. Choose a repair center that has unibody repair equipment and certified (by I-CAR or ASE for example), technicians. All Gurley Leep Collision Express Center locations are I-CAR Gold Class - OR - ASE Blue Oval Certified centers and all of our technicians have continuing I-CAR and ASE training to ensure that they are skilled in the latest repair process and equipment.
  7. Make sure you choose a collision repair center that has the advanced equipment and systems used to remove and reinstall frame, suspension, engine, and drivetrain components as well as provide other essential collision repair services. All Gurley Leep Collision Express Center locations have the latest equipment and training necessary to repair your vehicle to its exact factory specifications.
  8. Make sure that the collision repair center offers a warranty. Gurley Leep Collision Express Centers offers every customer our industry-best, Limited Lifetime Warranty for as long as you own your vehicle.
  9. Let us help you work with your insurance company. Gurley Leep Collision Express Centers have established positive business relationships with virtually every auto insurance company. Our ability to "cut through the red tape" ensures a smoother and faster repair process.
  10. Ask the repair center to pre-arrange a rental vehicle. Since the average vehicle is in the repair shop for one to two weeks, ask if the shop can make recommendations for a rental car company and if they can arrange for a replacement rental vehicle to be ready when you drop off your vehicle.
