Can The Insurance Provider Require The Repair Shop To Use Generic Or Used Parts?

Generally, the insurance provider must reimburse you for the repair or replacement of your vehicle with like kind and quality parts. However, the parts may not have to be new parts. If the parts and repairs are guaranteed by the repair shop, and are in the same condition as the parts damaged, they conform to the repair requirements. If you insist on certain parts you may have to pay the additional cost.
