A deductible is a specified amount on an auto insurance policy that is deducted from the claim payout. It is a contractual responsibility of the vehicle owner when involved in a collision or comprehensive loss. Most deductibles range from $100 to $500.
The deductible is due at the end of the repair when you pick-up your vehicle.
If you request a parts pre-order, and the claim has not been approved, you may be required to sign an authorization of repairs and/or leave a deposit.
