@GTO
What was the service center owner's reaction after you told him the estimated expenses?

Did he agree to pay in full?

Thats wrong with claiming insurance? Isn't insurance meant to serve such incidents?

True, but the service centre didn't pay the insurance premium, right? What if the owner had got only 3rd party insurance?

Also, even if the SC agrees to provide for the loss of NCB, it will be difficult to calculate the full monetary impact over the next years (as you know one can carry forward the NCB if one buys a new car).

Yes insurance is for these kind of incidents.
But whose insurance.

If the car is damaged without the owner being responsible then why should the owner loose the NCB. The NCB does grow to be a sizable sum of money.

If the person/company who caused this has insurance they may claim it and loose there NCB or whatever. Let the person who caused it underatke responsibilty and pay up. Either using some insurance or out of their pocket.

If there are floods,you the owner claim insurance without you being responsible Mostly these establishments do have an insurance policy. so its not as if the owner of the place will pay out of his own pocket.

Floods, earthquakes etc are called as Acts of God.
Since God does not bother to pay the bill and anyways his currency is no longer accepted by the majority of humans, we end up paying for it.

going OT.
lets drop this topic here.
If you want create a new thread for the same.

Rarely in life does the actual bill come lower than the estimate. Well, in this case, it has!! Auto Hangar just called and gave me a final bill amount of about 92,000. Thats like 50 grand lesser than their quote. I dont have the exact details but the car is going to be delivered early next week. Will check and update.

On the flip side, as some of you had predicted, the petrol pump is trying to squirm its way out of paying for damages. No sweat, we have our ways of getting what is due to us

Wonder what these are made of? Anyone knows the amount the manufacturer must be actually spending in manufacturing/sourcing these?
We manufacture Weather Strips and Protective Strips. Not for Automobiles though...but using the same raw materials and design basics

The absolute best quality is usually sold for Rs. 350/kg by manufacturers....

Being Benz parts, I am sure they are the best design and quality that man can make

Hey, The Benz is back as good as new. The repair job is fantastic, even I'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. Only if you look real close can you tell that the paint looks newer and is devoid of any scratches, which you will find on the rest of the car.

WRT the petrol pump, they did come back on track. Sorry, but cant disclose any more publicly with relevance to the payment issue.
