Bressler’s, Inc. is one of very few body remaining that choose not to be contractually linked to an insurance company. This means that we work for you, our customer, to ensure your vehicle is fixed to your satisfaction and using OEM parts whenever possible to restore your vehicle to pre-loss conditions and maintain its investment value. Most insurance companies have a Direct Repair Program (DRP) in place with specific collision shops. It is illegal for an insurance company to make you use one of these DRP shops, but the insurance company will strongly suggest you use one of these shops because it is most beneficial to the insurance company. The risk you take in using a DRP shop is that your insurance company will dictate the scope of repair these shops are allowed to do. Your car will be repaired and made road worthy again at one of these other shops, but may have been done so using cheap aftermarket parts and by a technician who is incentivized to do things as quickly as possible rather than as thoroughly as possible. All this is done in the name of cost savings for the insurance company, but hastily-completed work using cheap parts may lead to problems with corrosion and poor fitment down the road, thus hurting the value of your vehicle.
At Bressler’s, Inc., we will advocate for you; our customer. We can work with your insurance company to communicate why Original Manufacturer Equipment (OEM) parts are important in maintaining your investment. Our staff is not paid by flat rate, but rather our crew takes pride in doing a job right and satisfying our customers.
