Contact your insurance company to report the accident. Once they have issued you a claim number, just stop by to see us and we can process the claim on your insurer’s behalf.
Yes. CSN-Reliable Auto Body Ltd can contact your insurance company and arrange for an appraiser to inspect your car. We can also arrange for car rental pick-ups and drop-off.
If you have private insurance as well as ICBC coverage, you must contact your private insurance company to report your claim.
No. More often than not ICBC will allow us to do your estimate right at our facility without having to take your vehicle into them. There are only two types of claims that they will not allow us to handle on site:
Hit and Run Claims
This is fine as long as that person understands that the estimate we provide is just that – an estimate. Prices are subject to change once the repairs are completed. For example, hidden damage, parts pricing, etc., could crop up later on. You should also know that if you do report it to your insurance company, the very last step that the insurance company does is to offer the guilty party an opportunity to pay for the damages without processing a claim against their insurance.
If you have "Loss of Use" coverage through your insurance company, we can set you up with a courtesy car at our facility.
Using the OEM colour matching system, we pride ourselves on our ability to match factory finishes. CSN-Reliable Auto Body Ltd uses only the highest of quality water based paints from SIKKEN, and we adhere to their processes at every step of the way.
No appointments are necessary, and all estimates are free of charge.
Vehicle damage varies and there may be more there than meets the eye. Bringing your vehicle in allows us to give you the best possible collision repair estimate.
Our technicians strive to provide you with a realistic timeline to complete your repairs. Factors such as the extent of damage, availability of parts, and insurance approval enter into the calculations.
Our repairs come with a lifetime warranty.
