Superior Auto Body Saskatoon has been in business since 1961, and we have been an SGI ELITE Autobody shop and have been SGI accredited since 1982. There are many reasons we have so many loyal longstanding clients from all over the city, but mostly it is the small, personal touches that we offer to people who have been unfortunate enough to require our services. We offer newer model courtesy cars and vans for our clients..and to help out we will also pick up your vehicle and take it to your SGI appointment for you and deliver the courtesy car to you at home. In our latest Saskatoon autobody article , we explain the SGI vehicle repair estimate process after an accident in Saskatchewan.

SGI Vehicle Repair Estimate Process

Oh no, you have been involved in a collision or auto accident in Saskatoon!

Getting into an auto accident is a scary experience and the moments following are stressful. Obtaining a trustworthy collision repair estimate is a necessary first step toward getting your vehicle fixed and back on the road. Once you do that you can get on with your life.

If you are an advocate for having the initial vehicle repair estimate done at a preferred auto body shop ( such as Superior Auto Body, an SGI Elite Bodyshop) to avoid any dispute, we recommend the following steps:

  • The insured or whoever was driving at the time of accident needs to call SGI first to report their claim.  See the process and follow the steps by clicking on the image below!

  • Depending upon the circumstances (time of day, type of accident, type of damage), all of which are at SGI’s discretion, the insured can immediately request, while making the report, to have the appraisal done at a preferred auto body shop, whose name needs to be mentioned at the time of report e.g. Superior Auto Body.
  • Should the request be granted by the adjuster, SGI will email the auto body shop directly with the insured’s details and claim information.
  • The auto body shop will contact the insured directly to arrange a date and time to do the appraisal.

Generally, it is a better option for the insured to call SGI to make the report and request to have the estimate done at their preferred auto body. This way, they know immediately if that is an option or not. Filing an online claim leaves the insured at SGI’s discretion to determine where to book the appraisal for, which might be at one of SGI’s claim centres, most likely.
