Guidelines for Parts Use and Variation from Estimates

If the estimate (or Supplement) or Final Estimate...

  • Specifies an original equipment manufactured (OEM) part and Contractor desires to substitute a non-OEM part
  • States that a part should be replaced and Contractor desires to repair the existing part instead

Then the Contractor...

  • Will notify Progressive.
  • Will NOT substitute such non-OEM part or repair, rather than replace, the existing part, without Progressive's prior written consent.

  • The Contractor will maintain and provide a quality assurance program at each Repair Facility, subject to Progressive's reasonable approval.
  • The QA Program will include quality checks throughout the repair process, including a quality check by the repair facility prior to delivery of the vehicle to the Claimant or Progressive.
