Geico Body Shops in NYC/LI ?


As mentioned in a similar thread, my parents were involved in an accident with their 2013 accord, that might be repaired. If the adjuster doesn't total the car, then Geico suggested going to one of their repair shops where they have an insurance adjuster on site at all times. They said they would guarantee the work for life. Has anyone used their shops to repair their cars? I want to ensure they use OEM parts, and do a good job with the paint. I've had repairs in the past where the paint starts bubbling / flaking off. Is this covered?

SlateAccord You do not have to go to "their" body shop. The choice is yours. Geico just has contracts with the list of body shops they provide.

Even the Geico site says you can choose:

Here's another informative site:

I suggest getting a few appraisals, and base your decision on history of quality workmanship, word of mouth (ask family and friends near you for a good body shop), and price.

Regarding your past experiences with flaking/bubbling paint: it's covered if there was a warranty and the issues occurred during the warranty period.

Ask Geico and the body shop(s) as many questions as you have asked here lol

I used them and one of their authorized repair centers. The customer service end was fantastic, they have a rent a car right there for you and tell you that your car will be ready the next day and will be guaranteed for life and that they are in it together with you. The car was an older CRV that I had just hit a deer with that needed minimal repairs (radiator, condenser, headlight and front bumper). I really didn't care about O.E. on an older car.

Well, everything was done when they said it would be and the car worked but other than the headlight everything else looked cheap to me. Even the push pins were really cheap and not the Honda variety, the wiring was not routed correctly. I had to take off the lower radiator hose and rerun the wires. They didn't use Honda coolant. I later sold the CRV to a family member and there were no problems but I feel that the lip service is all about saving them money. Since your parent's Accord is on the newer side although not very valuable side I would shop around a little if you can wait or just get another car. A 2013 Accord can't be worth that much anymore.

When I was rear ended about 2 years ago I took it to the Honda dealer and they became the middle man between the insurance company, body shop and the rental. This allowed them to work out a price with the insurance company about the rental and what the body shop will accept. Also this will also guarantee that the parts are new OEM and not aftermarket or salvaged from a car. The dealer I went to is Nardy Honda. I am assuming that your parents live around Queens since your looking for body shops around NYC. So this dealer might be to far for your parents.

When I needed have my accord repaired after somebody hitting it in a parking lot, I inquired with the Honda dealer that I bought the car from. The dealer was running a Geico shop and when I asked them about the parts (OEM, new, etc), procedures etc because the car was barerly one year old, they told me that they will do/install whatever Geico tells them. For this reason, I found an independent shop that had my best interests and not Geico's.
