Payment under OSAGO: customer reviews
One of the key indicators characterizing the work of an insurance company is the percentage of payments under OSAGO. It shows how confident drivers can be in compensation for damages, and how the insurer behaves when necessary to meet financial obligations.
Most of the negative reviews about the insurance "Renaissance" for OSAGO are related to the payment of funds in the event of an accident (according to the comments of users of the financial portal "Banki.ru"). What users didn't like:
- The insurer may delay payment. Funds for repairs were paid to customers not 20 days later, but 2-3 months later. Negative reviews are related to compensation before the change in the law on OSAGO. According to the new rules, the insurer no longer reimburses money in the event of an accident, but pays for car repairs. The money is transferred to the account of the organization that the client has chosen to restore the vehicle. You can repair a car under the Renaissance policy at the partner auto repair shops of the insurer.
- Online, onOn the Banki.ru portal, customers complain that specialists are in no hurry to draw up paperwork for payment for an accident. Insurers are especially negative about the work of contact center employees. Some of the citizens had to wait for an operator's response for 40 minutes or more. As clients write, call center employees "feed" breakfasts about an imminent referral for repairs or refer to the alleged lack of documents, errors in the details.
- Incorrect damage calculation. 99% of insurers have complaints for this reason. The opinion of the car owner regarding the damage caused to his car does not always coincide with the result of the work of the appraiser. According to the feedback on OSAGO payments in Renaissance Insurance, in 3 out of 10 cases the company underestimates the cost of vehicle repairs. In 80% of cases, the reason for this is the mistake of the company's appraiser, who always inspects the vehicle before announcing the cost of repairs.
- Refused to accept documents. In the event of an error in the policy or the provision of an expired OSAGO, customers cannot count on compensation for damage. Some citizens regard this as a bad job of the insurer, forgetting about the terms of the contract. In Renaissance Insurance, like any insurance organization, auto repair funds are paid only to customers who are policy holders with a valid term. In the event of an accident due to the fault of the client, the victim will be compensated for repairs, but the insurer will apply a recourse requirement (refund for damage).
An error in the policy leads to a discrepancy between the information from the OSAGO AIS database. To pay for repairsat the expense of the insurer, the policyholder must correct errors in the policy in advance.
Does the company pay for OSAGO?
If we evaluate the overall picture of compensation for damage by the Renaissance Insurance group of companies, then the owner of the OSAGO policy can count on repairs at the expense of the insurance company. But, according to reviews, payments for OSAGO in Renaissance are not always carried out in accordance with the law.
According to the feedback from customers left on the inguru.ru portal, managers in Yekaterinburg are not entirely conscientious. So, some are trying to impose services, not giving the opportunity to receive the application form for payment.
In feedback on OSAGO in "Renaissance Insurance" in Yekaterinburg, vehicle owners sometimes mention that they were called to repair cars in a company not listed in the list of partner service stations.
In general, the insurer can sometimes violate the terms of the insurance contract, but does not shy away from financial obligations to customers. At the same time, in 2018, Renaissance Insurance was not included in the list of unprofitable organizations: income from the sale of OSAGO policies is 47% higher than the cost of repairing cars of injured citizens.
Payments for total OSAGO in "Renaissance", according to reviews, are not always made on time. Customers from Nizhny Novgorod often complain about the negative aspects associated with delayed payments (according to the website inguru.ru). According to the reviews of "Renaissance Insurance" for OSAGO, in Nizhny Novgorod, some people were not paid compensation for the complete death of the car for almost 2 months. The funds werelisted only after complaints: the insurer attributed the delay to a technical failure.
Reviews on service stations and OSAGO repair
In connection with the replacement of cash compensation under OSAGO with "in-kind" compensation in the form of car repairs at the expense of the insurance company, customers have another problem - high-quality repairs at a service station (SRT). According to the law on OSAGO dated 04.25.2002 No. 40-FZ, the client cannot choose where to send the damaged vehicle - the right of choice is assigned to the insurer.
Sometimes the services rendered by service stations do not meet the expectations of customers. An example is the feedback from Renaissance clients on OSAGO in St. Petersburg (according to data from the site inguru.ru). The owners of the vehicle faced a problem: the service station chosen by the insurer did not have a license, in addition, the car service did not meet the requirements of the client. In the selected service station, it was not possible to make high-quality car repairs, which led to dissatisfaction and an increase in the timing of the fulfillment of obligations by the insurance company.
Another negative experience with OSAGO in "Renaissance" St. Petersburg is connected with the fact that car owners cannot always repair the vehicle at an authorized dealer, although they indicate this in the application when contacting the insurer. From a legal point of view, the company "Renaissance Insurance" does not violate the law, choosing a car service at its discretion. But an example explains the lack of customer focus: vehicle owners sometimes have to go to 2 centers to make a complete repair, solike the selected service station sometimes does not have the necessary equipment or a master.
