Advantages of choosing an approved car garage to repair your car
If your car insurance policy is with Fidelidade, you should know that there are several advantages in case of accident, to repair your car in a workshop recommended by the company.
There are several reasons why it is advisable to choose a workshop of the Fidelidade network. And the most important are:
Repairs with a 2-year guarantee
– All repairs carried out in this workshop and are related to your claim have a 2-year guarantee ( and 3-year for car parts). This added value is fundamental because in the event of a faulty repair, the customer has the right to a new repair, and the Company is responsible. On the other hand, if you take your car to a repair shop that does not belong to this network, if there is any problem with the repair, it is the customer who is responsible for that claim and the Company is not liable.
– When you take your car to a repair shop recommended by Fidelidade you are entitled to a replacement car. This vehicle is made available to you directly by the workshop while your car is being repaired. This advantage is especially important for those customers who have opted for a very economical policy and do not have replacement car cover. Even in this case, the Fidelidade recommended repairer will offer a replacement car.
