Is Your Auto Insurance Company Steering You? It’s Illegal!
You listen to the commercials, you pay your premiums and you assume if you are in car accident your insurance company has your best interests in mind. But do they really? Not necessarily it turns out.
“STEERING IS ILLEGAL, BUT THE FACT IS IT GOES ON EVERYDAY ALL ACROSS THE UNITED STATES”
Auto insurance companies are in the business of making money, not looking out for your best interest. They have made deals with auto body shops all over the country to save them money by getting discounted parts and labor in exchange for sheer volume of work that the referral business brings in. And in the end who pays for this? YOU DO!
Tom and Lula LoConti at Irishman’s Auto Body & Frame in Jupiter, Florida do not participate in these programs because they want their customer’s best interest to be their priority. Returning your automobile to its pre-loss condition is what you are paying for in insurance premiums and anything less is unacceptable and bad business. Not only is the value of your vehicle compromised, but there may even be safety concerns using inferior aftermarket parts.
“YOU AND YOU ALONE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHERE YOUR CAR GETS FIXED AFTER AN ACCIDENT!”
Irishman’s Auto Body & Frame works for you, our customers, not the insurance company.
Some common auto insurance company “steering” practices include:
- Insurance company cannot guarantee the repairs if you go to a body shop not on their preferred list
- You will have to pay the difference in labor rates if you go to a body shop not on their preferred list
- Your repairs could be delayed if you go to a body shop not on their preferred list
None of these statements are true!
