Know Your Rights
Dealing with the stress of a collision is hard enough without trying to figure out how your accident insurance works. Here are some answers to frequently-asked questions about insurance policies.
Will the insurance company guarantee your work?
We guarantee our own work, but the insurance company does not have the legal right to guarantee a third party's work.
Who pays for repairs?
It depends on the circumstances. If you were at fault, but have comprehensive or collision insurance, the insurance company would pay the costs minus your deductible. If the other party was at fault, their insurance company should pay.
Do I have to accept the insurance company's appraisal of damage?
No. Check the "Appraisal Clause" in your policy if you have differences with their appraisal. It allows you and the insurance company to gather an opinion from an appraiser you both agree upon, or a third-party "Umpire" if you cannot agree.
Do I have the right to a rental car?
If you have purchased rental car coverage and were not responsible for the accident, you may seek reimbursement from the insurance company or, if another driver was responsible for the accident, their insurance company.
If you do not have rental car coverage and were responsible for the accident, you have no grounds to ask for reimbursement. If the other driver was liable, you can generally seek reimbursement from their insurance company.

Within an hour of calling them the tow truck arrived. My car was ready by 10:30 am the next day. Great service
Taking my truck there many times and never left upset , mad or felt robbed ! Quality work and employees who are honest from the start !
The people at Finks work hard to provide good service and go the extra mile when necessary. Honesty, fair pricing and good service. That's what I've experienced every time I've had a vehicle in for service.
I am so glad I was highly recommended to try Fink's Car Care! I had been going to a different car repair shop for 18 years. That owner retired and I needed to find another honest and reliable car repair shop to patronize. The prior shop referred me to Fink's Car Care and after having my first experience there I can tell you they will have my business for car repair needs from now on. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I feel they properly, and most important to me, honestly diagnosed the issue and fixed it right the first time. It is hard to find honest and reliable service now days, but I can tell you I found exactly that with Fink's Car Care!
Very professional and thorough.
Great service, great people. Highly recommended!
