autopom! is excited to announce our partnership with RepairPal, a network of over 2,800 repair facilities! Although autopom!’s vehicle protection plans let you take your vehicle to any licensed repair facility nationwide, to make it convenient for you and to ensure you receive the best possible service, we recommend RepairPal’s preferred network of certified shops.
RepairPal shops are trained on how to work with coverage plans and are ready to assist you. Through our partnership with RepairPal, we have ensured that it is easy for you to take advantage of the coverage we offer.
The shops in this preferred network are high quality, offering at least a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty (or better), and have high customer satisfaction ratings. In the event that you have maintenance or other needs not covered by your contract, they also offer guaranteed fair prices. You can check prices anytime on www.repairpal.com/autopom.
Why trust RepairPal shops?
At RepairPal Certified shops and dealers, you can expect your car to be repaired correctly the first time. All shops in their network have displayed extensive experience and training, advanced tools and equipment, and use of high-quality parts.
Moreover, their minimum 12,000 mile / 12 month repair warranty and commitment to fair prices guarantee customer satisfaction. We take pride being able to recommend high-quality work from expert mechanics at a fair price when they choose to use a RepairPal Certified repair facility.
Although unfortunate, many consumers have been overcharged for repairs from various repair facilities or dealerships. This typically comes from three common situations:
- Charging auto part prices well above the MSRP (Manufacturer suggested retail pricing).
- Inflating labor times for a given job above industry guidelines.
- Charging higher labor rates than appropriate for the local market.
To combat this, RepairPal’s Fair Price Estimator will help ensure you are not being overcharged for repairs or maintenance.
How Does the RepairPal Fair Price Estimator™ Work?
RepairPal’s Fair Price Estimator tells you what to expect for the cost of your needed repairs so you don’t get overcharged at the repair shop. It estimates pricing for repairs by using parts and labor data from the same sources used by the automotive industry to calculate pricing. This data includes the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) for parts, industry agreed-upon labor times, and local labor rates. RepairPal then uses this data in a standardized formula to give you the fair price range for a specific repair.
To ensure customers are only charged prices within the RepairPal estimator’s range, all shops in RepairPal’s certified network also honor their Fair Price Guarantee.
