  2. The app* walks you through taking vehicle damage photos and/or video. You’ll have the option to add notes telling us more about the damage and share any existing photos on your device, including:

    • Photos not captured from our previous prompts
    • Videos associated with the claim
    • Police reports
    • Insurance information from others involved
  3. Your photos and files will be available for us to review and determine next steps with your claim.

Remember, if you receive your estimate, the decision to repair is yours—and it's OK not to repair your vehicle. If you finance or lease your car though, your lender may require you to get the repairs. If you decide to repair your vehicle, you can choose any repair shop you'd like. However, by using a shop within our approved Progressive Network, we'll guarantee your repairs for as long as you own or lease your vehicle. Just call your claims rep to start the process.
