How many estimates do I have to obtain?
You have to convince the insurance company that the cost of repairs is reasonable. You do not have to get a certain number of estimates.
Who pays the repair bill?
You must arrange for payment. Your insurance policy states that your insurer will pay you, less any deductibles or depreciation.
Do I have the right to select the shop that will repair my car?
Yes. No one else may dictate to you where you have your vehicle repaired.
