After a wreck, seeing your bike messed up just hits you in the gut. It’s never good when you need Garland TX collision repair, but sometimes stuff happens. We’re here to answer your questions about motorcycle repair, give you insight on our approach to motorcycle restoration and explain why we’re the best choice when you need a Harley® body shop.

Motorcycle Insurance And H-D® Collision Repair

On the off chance that you have full coverage cruiser protection, you're covered if your Harley®  is harmed or taken. So in the event that you've been in a disaster area, you presumably will not need to come up with money for the whole repair bill using cash on hand. 

It's similar to a car crash. If you're to blame, your insurance protection will pay for any required fixes. If the other driver or rider is to blame, their protection should pay. In Texas the state mandates coverages for personal injury and property damages.

Full coverage is exactly what it seems like. It covers impact repairs in case you're in a wreck. Comprehensive coverage picks up the bill if you experience a fire, flood, if a tree falls on your Harley®, if it's stolen while you're away and nearly all the other things.

One caveat - accessories like saddlebags, luggage racks or windshields might not be covered. It’s always a good idea to check your policy if you’re adding expensive accessories to find out what’s covered and add to your policy if you want to make sure you’re protected.

Collision Repair Insurance Cost

Motorcycle insurance rates, like your auto policy, fluctuate depending on what type of bike you ride and what your driving record is like. Our customers say Full Cycle Insurance provides excellent coverage for motorcycles, ATVs and watercraft, and they can also bundle your home and business insurance.

Sometimes people ask whether they should choose liability or full coverage insurance for their Harley. The general rule of thumb is that if your bike is worth more than $5,000, if it’s a classic, or if you’ve made a lot of customizations, you should go for full coverage. If your bike is worth less, you’d probably be better off paying out of pocket for any needed motorcycle repair rather than pay the higher premiums that go with more coverage.

Another item to consider is whether or not your bike is your primary mode of transportation. If you damage it and only have liability coverage, you won't be able to use your ride until you can pay for the repairs. You'll also have to wait for the motorcycle body shop's work to be completed. You can choose to have a replacement vehicle while your bike is being repaired if you have full coverage.

Process When Using Insurance for Motorcycle Collision Repair Process

When you're in an accident, whether you're on two, three, four, or®  more wheels, the first thing you should do is make sure you and everyone else are safe. Then call the cops to get an objective report of what transpired. Even if the other driver was at fault, notify your insurance provider as soon as you are able.

We’re here to talk about any needed repairs as soon as you are. You can bring your bike by if it’s still rideable or bring photos if it’s not.

This part can be emotional, stressful and intense. You just went through a wreck, and that shakes most people up. Your bike, your treasured possession is messed up, and that hurts. Insurance companies aren’t always helpful, and what they say about coverages can be confusing.

We’ve been through this with a lot of customers. Only a qualified motorcycle accident attorney can give you legal advice, but we can identify with what you’re feeling and help you explore options for getting your bike back on the road. We can also work up an estimate for repairs so you have that ready to give to the adjuster.
