Procedures When you Return Home from Mexico
When you return to your home country you should also contact your U.S. or Canadian Insurance providers and inform them that your car was stolen or damaged in Mexico. If you are having your vehicle repaired in the U.S. or Canada, you must contact International Claims Service (ICS) at 1-800-284-9783 or 956-682-1353. They will require you to complete some additional paperwork and make arrangements so an adjuster can inspect the vehicle and make a repair report based on part and labor prices in your area. If your vehicle was stolen and you have a lienholder, ICS will assist you with completing your claim and making payment to your lienholder.
