There is information that every car owner should be aware of when having their vehicle repaired. Going to a collision repair shop isn’t generally what people are familiar with because hopefully it doesn’t happen often!
Most importantly you want to insure your vehicle is repaired correctly in a timely manner. This is why we want you to know you have the right to choose your own repair shop. Asking friends, family and looking up your local repair shops are ways that will help you find a reputable shop.
Section 2610 of The NYS Insurance Law provides that the insurance carrier shall not require repairs be made in a certain place or shop. It also provides that the Insurance Company shall not recommend or suggest repairs be made in a certain repair shop, unless requested by you.
