Do I need insurance to transport a used car to the shop?

You do not need to insure the vehicle while it's in transit — especially since it's not yet registered. You'll need insurance once the vehicle is repaired and ready to be driven. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

If the repair costs more than the car without an accident, will it still get totaled?

Your insurance company will never get involved in helping you repair your vehicle if there was no accident or other loss that caused the damage. Since there was no accident, you are on the hook for paying for your vehicle's repairs.

Can I file an additional loss of use claim even after the at fault party's insurance has paid for the repairs of the vehicle?

From my understanding, if the initial check did not cover your travel expenses but was for the repairs then you are still owed for that and should reopen the claim with that company. They, of course, would need the info and receipts to show what expenses you had. For future reference, I recommend using the initial claims payout for what it was meant for — your car's repairs, first and foremost.

Is there insurance coverage for auto glass?

Depending on your insurance company there are two ways you can go about getting auto glass coverage: through your comprehensive coverage, which includes glass protection, or you can add specific glass coverage if your insurer offers it. This comes with a separate, much lower deductible for glass damage compared to your comprehensive deductible.

Why won't my insurance recognize or cover Tesla labor rates?

Each insurance company has different guidelines when it comes to how they handle claims and repairs. As long as they are following the guidelines agreed to within your policy documents, then they are meeting the requirements on their end, so refer back to your policy and check what's covered and what's not.

Hello, You are correct about how long you have to file a claim. However, each company is different, so you need to contact your insurance company for specific information relating to your repairs.
