Not sure, call your insurance agent and ask. We'd only be guessing. Usually it has to cost them more to fix than what the payout to you would be. Not the selling price.

Something is not right! Go to Blue Book enter all your car's information and mileage and get the real wholesale vehicle's worth and compare against the body shop's bill then according to what you get call the company and argue your case. A bent frame after repaired is never the same you'll have a lot of issues post repair regardless what body shop or insurance tells you
