Following an accident, the insurance company hires an appraiser. After inspection, the appraiser indicates whether the vehicle is worth repairing.
When the vehicle can be repaired, the insurance company calls a collision repair centre. l’assureur fera appel à un carrossier. Recycled parts are perfectly suited for repairs. When necessary, a safety inspection is performed by the Ministry. Recycling helps the environment, as well as reducing repair costs.
When the vehicle is a declared total loss, the insurance company settles with the insured party, then sells the vehicle to an ARPAC member. After the vehicle is dismantled following strict standards (quality, environment, security), used parts in good condition are labelled, inventoried and stored.
