We at ESR have a dedicated team of professionals and nearly thirty years of experience. This experience is critical in capturing all of the repairs needed and justifying why those repairs are required to your insurance carrier. This experience is priceless when justifying repairs that the insurance adjuster may have overlooked or omitted.
Being an approved vendor takes years or sometimes decades. This does not mean that ESR works for the insurance companies best interest, what it means is we have been thoroughly evaluated and have demonstrated to be reputable, financially stable and performed the services for over ten years. It does us no good to shortcut your repairs, we are paid for our services if we cut corners then not only are you disappointed but we short ourselves.
