The first thing you should do is phone Manitoba Public Insurance to inform them you have been in an accident. They will take down all of the information, and set you up with an adjuster and date to have your vehicle estimated. It is then decided whether or not your vehicle is repairable or a total loss. If repairable you will be given papers to bring to a Manitoba Public Insurance Accredited shop like us.
If your car has been estimated by Manitoba Public Insurance within the last 3 months already, you can phone and give us your claim number. Your car does not need to be seen until you bring it in. If you are not having your work done through an insurance claim, it is always best to bring your vehicle down to properly assess your vehicle for an estimate.
If you're using a Manitoba Public Insurance claim to repair your vehicle you can choose any Manitoba Public Insurance Accredited repair facility you wish.
A deductible is used by Manitoba Public Insurance to control premiums because they help control claim costs. The deductible is paid to the shop doing your repairs. Paying your deductible is also dependent on who is at fault in the accident.

It is always important to have body damage analyzed by a professional repair technicians as it could have caused hidden problems as well. An accident that resulted in a small dent could have actually caused a bent frame or some other issue as well.
While there are take home kits that advertise the ability to let anyone repair a dent these should not be used. More than likely you'll end up doing more harm than good, such as scratching the paint.
If paint is scratched or otherwise damaged it will result in bare metal being exposed to the elements. This will quickly lead to rust issues, which can be very detrimental to your car's structural integrity and looks.

When your vehicle is damaged in a collision, an estimate is not the first thing that you should obtain. The first order of business is to determine who will pay for the damage. In most cases, your vehicle will require some disassembly of damaged parts in order for us to produce an accurate estimate of your damage. Because of this, the estimating process is affected by the needs of the paying party. All insurance companies have different claims procedures and we will let you know the most efficient way to handle your claim. In addition, we will assist you with the claims process. You don't need to run around wasting your time gathering estimates and claims handling. Many times it is better to leave the car with us and have the insurance company inspect it with us; this can prevent discrepancies that may delay repairs. By the way, we do provide free, computerized estimates.

Your deductible is what you agreed to pay when you purchased your policy. If you are pursuing a claim under your policy, you may have a deductible. If the other party is at fault, MPI should try to pursue reimbursement of your deductible through that other party.
INSURED'S: If MPI is paying for the repairs you may have an endorsement for Loss of Use on your policy. Your insurance policy will spell out the amount of rental coverage exactly. Ask your insurance claims representative for details.
CLAIMANTS: If the other party is paying for the repairs they will also reimburse you for reasonable transportation while your vehicle is in the repair facility. This should include the daily rate, daily license fee, plus tax. Insurance on your personal vehicle may extend to your rental vehicle, so we recommend that you check with MPI.
