to Insurance Regulation 64 of the New York State Department of Financial Services, we are supplying you with the following information and optional waiver.
Our offer of $ _ plus your deductible of $ _ and $ _ of betterment or previous damage deduction is sufficient to repair your vehicle to its pre-accident condition at a repair shop located reasonably convenient to you. We are able to provide you with the identity of the repair shop that will repair your vehicle at our estimate, but under the Insurance Law we may not recommend a repairer unless you expressly request such information. Unless you have already asked us to recommend a repair shop, you must sign the attached Section 2610 of the Insurance Law Disclosure Statement in order to enable us to make such recommendation.
If your vehicle is repaired at a repair shop recommended by us, the repair shop must issue a written guarantee that any work performed in repairing your vehicle meets generally accepted standards for safe and proper repairs. If our recommended repairer does not honor its written guarantee, we will restore your vehicle to its pre-accident condition within a reasonable time at no additional cost to you.
Your policy covers you for reasonable expenses that you incur in order to protect your motor vehicle from further damage after a loss. Contact us immediately for information as to what extent such expenses are covered. NYS APD 1
