Start With Your Insurance Policy
Did you know that it’s your right to get only new Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts? Or that some insurance companies have parts riders to cover OEM parts? Call your provider and ask these questions:
- Does my current policy include new OEM parts coverage?
- Can I add an OEM parts rider to my current policy?
- If I don’t have OEM parts coverage, is there another policy I can get that covers OEM parts if I’m in a collision?
- Does that ensure that the parts used to repair my vehicle are new OEM parts?
