Do I have to accept “alternative” parts?
If you are insured and file a claim, then your insurance policy may allow for the use of aftermarket and/or used parts; however, your policy should also state that they owe for a safe (Pre-loss) repair! Be sure to ask your body shops recommendation on the use of those parts. If you are 3rd party to a claim, there is NO law stating what type of parts that can be used. You do NOT have to accept “alternative” parts!
