SmartPhone Claim Assistance

We’ll Make Sure You Get the Best Claim Settlement and Repair by Being with You Every Step of the Way

Maybe you’ve seen the TV spots or heard the radio ads. A large national auto insurer encourages its customers to merely snap a photo of their vehicle’s accident damage with their smart phone, send it to them, and they’ll send a check for repairs to your service shop. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

How it’s worked until now. After your accident and a possible police report, your insurance company’s appraiser examines your vehicle and estimates damage and the cost to repair. When you bring the damaged vehicle to Rudy Schmid Total Car Care here in Syracuse, we do a thorough estimate of the vehicle’s damage. Then we and the insurance appraiser compare notes. Rudy Schmid Total Car Care will represent you to get the full amount you are due for your vehicle’s repair.

As insurance companies eliminate local appraisers – and the folks we’ve worked with on your behalf for years – you become your own spokesperson for repairs that aren’t always easy to photograph. Then, it’s tougher to deal with the insurance companies, especially if more work is required to properly repair your vehicle than was originally estimated.

What’s the best way to get your best settlement in this new environment? Let the experienced and knowledgeable staff at Rudy Schmid take your collision photos for you. We know what to look for and since we already have the relationships with the insurance companies, we can streamline the process for you. We will be your advocate from the moment your vehicle arrives at our shop until we turn it back over to you, fully repaired.

We’re local. We’re trusted. If you have a collision with your vehicle in Central New York, let us help you after a collision from taking photos, to negotiating with the insurance company, to making your vehicle whole again. A picture is worth a thousand words – don’t let a bad picture cost you thousands of dollars.
