If your car is repairable, check your auto insurance policy for rental car coverage.

Your insurance company may direct you to a rental car company. We can suggest a rental shop or a repair shop that may be able to arrange for a rental car. If another vehicle hit you and that driver has insurance, it’s possible that the driver’s insurance may cover the rental cost. However, this could take several days. The adverse insurance companies typically will not authorize a rental car until they’ve spoken with their insured and reviewed the police report. And make sure that their driver is the one at fault. If your car is in storage yard, it’s important to get it out of there. Arizona Law is clear that even if you are not at fault for the accident, you must take steps to mitigate your damages. If the insurance company declares your vehicle a total loss, the same basic advice applies.
