A Direct Repair Program, also known as a DRP, is a relationship that is formed between an insurance company and an auto body shop. If your vehicle has incurred damage and you file a claim with your insurance company, you will likely receive a list of local automotive repair providers from your automotive insurance provider. Peninsula Auto Body is proud to be a DRP provider for Progressive in South San Francisco.
Consumers, whether they live throughout South San Francisco or any other city throughout California, have the legal right to choose where they prefer to take their vehicle for repairs. However, a DRP can be beneficial to insurance carriers, auto body shops, and the consumer. Below is a brief overview of the advantages that a DRP provides to each party involved, and what it means for you.
Peninsula Auto Body’s DRP Body Shop Advantage
By being a part of the Progressive DRP program, the Peninsula Auto Body name is in front of potential customers that have Progressive auto insurance throughout South San Francisco, CA. Through these programs, customers can find our shop that otherwise may not have been found, and make a decision on whether to obtain our services. Our credentials have been verified by Progressive allowing us the ability to build a partnership you can trust. While it is illegal to steer work, auto body shops on a DRP may see more customers.
Progressive Insurance Carrier Advantage
Progressive insurance has an advantage by easily dispatching estimate requests to Peninsula Auto Body, since we are already in their DRP Program. In addition to this, Progressive has the ability to seek out additional local shops they trust, giving customers a choice of potential shops in their area. While insurance companies may have shops on their DRP, consumers have the final decision on where they take their vehicle. If a shop is outside the DRP, you can still receive service from the experienced team at Peninsula Auto Body.
Progressive Insurance DRP Consumer Advantages
If you have been involved in an accident or sustained damage to your vehicle – choosing a reputable auto collision repair shop in South San Francisco can be a difficult task. There are some shops out there that may not have your best interest and safety in mind. Cutting corners on parts, lack of customer service and high-quality, trained technicians, high rates and slow service are just a few of the problems you may encounter throughout your collision repair. If you are currently insured with Progressive, you can rest assured knowing they are sending you to a credible shop when you bring your vehicle to Peninsula Auto Body. While Progressive insurance will provide you with a list of reputable shops in your area, it isn’t the only factor that matters.
