Apex Accepts All Major Insurance for Collision Repairs

The Benefits to Using Apex Instead of a DRP Shop

After an accident, drivers can be understandably confused trying to navigate the steps to getting their vehicle repaired. The insurance companies will always try to guide drivers to their preferred shop. Typically, this is a shop that has signed an agreement with the insurance company called a Direct Repair Program or DRP. DRPs allow the insurance company to minimize their expense by incentivizing a repair facility to complete the repairs quickly and for the least amount possible.

Insurance companies steer drivers towards DRP shops by referring to them as selective, network, preferred or recommend. They may also say that they will not warranty work done at any other shops, but it is not the insurance company that offers a warranty, it is the repair facility.

In Arizona, insurance companies cannot require you to provide multiple estimates or tell you where to get your repairs completed… it is entirely up to you.

So why pick Apex Customs to repair your vehicle after an accident? Apex Customs is not a high-volume repair shop and does not have a DRP agreement with any insurance companies. We take pride in every aspect of our work knowing that the vehicles that we restore or customize will be scrutinized by car enthusiasts. You can take comfort in knowing that your vehicle is being repaired by the same technicians that work on exotic cars and priceless classics.

MISCONCEPTION #1   You should use the repair shop your insurance company recommends.


You can take your car to any shop you want, so why not take your car to an auto body that’s proven to deliver High-Quality work? For years, Apex Customs has focused on top-of-the-line car customization and restoration. As a result, we have a highly skilled teams and the right tools to provide truly expert-level service for any car.

MISCONCEPTION #2   Insurance companies want to make sure every part is repaired properly.


Most insurance companies will try to get by with repairing as little as possible. A good auto body repair shop is an advocate for their customers, making sure that every part that was broken is repaired back to new. Our commitment to quality and honesty means we're going to go above and beyond for you to make sure your car repairs are done right.

MISCONCEPTION #3   It will cost you more to get your collision work done at a high-end custom shop.


All shops get paid the same for the work, and it costs you the same as well. At apex, we pay the same painters the same rate on a custom paint job as we do on a rear bumper replacement. We know our work is done right and will last.

MISCONCEPTION #4   You can't use custom parts in your repair.


There are times when we can pick and choose various parts to install at the same pricing as what it would take to install the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) part, so we have the chance to explore alternatives to not only bring your car back from an accident, but to give it a new custom look. We are not only trained on how to put together the vehicle the way it was from the factory, but we also have the skills to install custom parts along the way, if you choose, to make the repair process a little more fun!

MISCONCEPTION #5   Custom shops like Apex Customs would rather not work on "normal” cars.


Most people see a custom shop and assume  that they only work on classics, exotics, or  high-end cars. At apex, we proudly work on  all cars and treat everyone, from beginners  to experts, with respect.  Before  getting collision repair work done at a  high-end custom shop is a wise decision.
