Minnesota Statute 72B.092, SUBD.1
The insurance company cannot require you to have your vehicle inspected at a “drive-in” claim center or any other similar facility solely under the control of the insurance company.
Malecha’s Auto Body will arrange for your appraiser to inspect your vehicle at our facility.
Minnesota Statute 72A.201, SUBD.6
Minnesota law gives you the right to choose a repair shop to fix your vehicle. Your policy will cover the reasonable costs of repairing your vehicle to its pre-accident condition no matter where you have repairs made.
There is no law that requires you to obtain two or three estimates. If your insurance company requests this, it’s a matter of the company’s policy. Once you select Malecha’s Auto Body to repair your vehicle, tell the insurance company right away. Never submit an estimate from a shop that you wouldn’t have repair your vehicle.
