You have the Right to Choose

In the event of an automobile accident, consumer’s need to know they have the right to choose their auto body collision repair facility.

The decision of where the vehicle is repaired is the vehicle owners not the insurance company’s: “No insurer, adjuster, appraiser or agent shall require that repairs be made at a specific repair facility.” – Pennsylvania State Law – Motor Vehicle Physical Damage Appraiser Act

Our Mission

We believe in the God given right of individual business owners to operate an honest ethical and responsible business using general accounting principles which includes the need for necessary profit.

You’ve had an accident and your insurance company is asking you to take pictures. Photo estimating is not as consumer-friendly as it sounds. In PA it’s your legal right to request an estimator.

PCTG maintains a complaint database for consumers to submit auto collision repair complaints for investigation.
