I was sent a car insurance check made out to me and my body shop and now the body shop is quoting a much lower?

I originally got a quote for 1500.00 to fix my body damage on my car from my body shop. My insurance co. sent me a check for 1500.00 in my name and my body shops name, now my body shop is saying it will cost 900.00, can I cash the check and pay the body shop or do I give it to the body shop? Can I keep the difference or call my car insurance?

You should call your insurance company and tell them. Keeping the extra money could be a crime. You dont want to have a criminal offense on your record for something so easy to avoid.

You cannot cash the check without the body shops signature. You have 2 choices. Tell the body shop what happened and see if they will cooperate with you or notify your insurance company. Which choice do you suppose is the proper one?
