Shop of Choice Directive
Attention all insurance company staff and/or representatives:
Please be advised that effective immediately my shop of choice is Georgetown Collision located at 7200 North Interstate 35, Building 2, Georgetown, Texas, 78626, 512-212-4991, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please email Georgetown Collision the Estimate of Record and all Supplement of Records immediately so that there are no repair delays. I grant Georgetown Collision authority to handle the repairs and all aspects of the claim in regard to the repair process. If my vehicle is at another repair facility or tow yard, I release the vehicle into the care and custody of Georgetown Collision.
Please make no attempt to steer me to a “network shop” or make any verbal attempts to disparage Georgetown Collision, as any violation to Texas law cited below will be reported to the Texas Department of Insurance.
Furthermore, please be advised that I do NOT authorize any aftermarket or used parts to be put on my vehicle. Georgetown Collision has agreed to utilize only new OEM parts and all invoices will be provided at the end of the repair. I direct you to pay Georgetown Collision for all repairs and OEM parts.
Signed and executed this date, __________________.
