The Expert Paint and BodyShop is an SGI accredited shop, and if you have been in an accident then we can help get your vehicle back on the road.
If you have been in an accident the first thing you should do is file a claim. You can do this by calling SGI and using their Dial-A-Claim service during regular office hours. You can also report the accident online with their Auto eClaim service. If you report your claim through SGI’s Dial-a-Clain service, they will set up an appointment to have your vehicle’s damage assessed. Be sure to report if you or anyone with you was injured to Auto injury claims. Before making your claim, have your driver’s licence, the vehicle registration and, if you have one, your SGI CANADA Auto Pak policy number on hand. SGI will also need the driver’s licence number of other drivers and licence plate numbers of other vehicles involved in the collision.
You need to call the police if any of the following occurred:
- If the collision results in injury or death.
- If it’s a hit and run.
- If a driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol.
- If any of the vehicles involved have to be towed from the scene.
- If the collision involves a vehicle that does not have a valid licence plate or is an out-of-province vehicle.
If none of the above apply, the collision needs only to be reported to SGI.
Once you have filed your claim with SGI, you should book an appointment us and we will take care of the rest for you.
