Collision Department FAQ
How long will I be without my vehicle?
The condition of your vehicle will determine the length of time it takes to complete the repairs. Once an estimate is given, the duration of the job can be established.
I have a deductible on my insurance. Do I pay that to my insurance company, or to the repair shop?
The deductible is paid to Shaw GMC.
Do I need a damage certificate?
Yes. If damages exceed $2000.00 a damage sticker or a police case number is required before repairs can be started.
Do repairs to my vehicle affect my warranty?
No. We stand behind all our repairs. Should any problem arise that is within warranty guidelines, you will be protected.
