What about if the check from insurance for auto hail damage is higher than a repair of the car?

I didn'-t get the check yet because I need to find the auto body shop for the hail damage repair and the check can'-t be made on my name but on my name and auto body shop name only. I asked a couple estimates and they give me a price for the repair about $1000 lower than the check is. What about the rest of the money? Do the auto body shop take it or what? I live in Chicago and maybe someone have a good repair man who can deal with it.

The remaining funds belong to you, get your estimate in writing for the complete job then after the work is finished to your inspection give them the check and they will in-turn give you back a company check for the difference.
