Sounds like 4k over the original amount

I was assured that they arenít charging insurance 5k for a 1k job. But yes itís possible that an initial estimate is lower than than the final amount.

If I ever need it again, I will have the adjuster come to my house and get a check from insurance before I take it to the body shop. Never had this before.
They never pay you for all the damage on the initial inspection, the body shop always finds more damage. You'd be much better off trying to negotiate some money back in advance.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You pay for the extra money that you get from insurance with the time needed to follow up (good luck) with him.

Granted they are not charging insurance 5k for a 1k charge. They are charging the owner whatever insurance pays. That is not the expected practice when dealing with insurance damages. You quote the cost of repairs and if insurance pays more the owner keeps the difference.
If more things come up of course the body shop should be paid, but when the estimate triples or quadruples to match the insurance payout that's when people get upset. You can charge whatever you feel is the cost of doing the repairs but be upfront that you take everything insurance offers.

Where did you get these expectations from?

There's a reason the payout increased so much, it's because they found all that additional damage.

I've had previous experiences with car repairs and house repairs involving insurance. Could be things have changed recently, but I know several other people who are not happy. Usually insurance companies pay a higher price for repairs than the actual cost of the repair, not necessarily that they found more damage. And I was told that repairs would cost X and insurance would probably pay double that with no mention that he expects all the insurance money.

Isn't that insurance fraud?

Why? They assess the damage with their adjuster and I find someone who will fix it for less. Why is that fraud? If I submit my bills that are false that would be fraud. If the insurance company pays me I can do what I want with the money.

Same thing if they assess body damage and give you a check, and you choose not to fix it. Your car still lost value...
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Which mechanic is good for insurance repair?
I've used allstate collision  a year and half ago. I was very happy with their service.
But I'm still proud to be from clev!
