MYTH: Insurance requires more than one (1) estimate.
FACT: CT law requires you to get only one (1) estimate or appraisal.
MYTH: Insurance company tells you where need to go for repairs.
FACT: It is against CT State Law for insurance companies to say or do this.
MYTH: You must go to a shop that belongs to the insurance company repair
network, for them to pay for repairs.
FACT: This is simply not true. You should in fact be cautious of shops that
belong to a network, as they have made concessions to the insurance
company. If they are willing to do this, will they make concessions in the repairs to your vehicle?
NOT at HANSEN AUTO BODY!
MYTH: By going to the shop of your choice it will take longer or cost you
more to complete repairs.
FACT: At Hansen Auto Body we take only as much time as is necessary to
repair your vehicle correctly the first time. Your only cost will be
your deductible, no matter how much the total repairs cost
MYTH: All shops do the same work.
FACT: Nothing could be farther from the truth. We at Hansen Auto Body
are trained professionals, whose reputation is at stake on every job.
Quality is our # 1 concern.
MYTH: The shop can save your deductible.
FACT: It is against the law as your deductible is the first amount applied to
the repairs. Would you ask your doctor to save your co pay?
MYTH: If you file a claim your premium will go up.
FACT: Your premium may rise, but nowhere close to the amount of the
decrease in value to your vehicle by not repairing, on resale.
Why have insurance if you are not going to use it when needed?
