    Hello Friends,

    Today i hit my Punto while taking it out from the parking :(. The rear left portion touched with the pillar. It has got multiple scratches and dents.
    Guys i need your suggestion whether to go with the fiat service and get the insurance claimed or to get it done from outside.


    Here are the pics.

    Get the quote from both and then decide.

    IMO Insurance formula (if to be claimed or not) is if the damage amount is more than atleast by 3-5k on the difference of previous and next year premium, then go for insurance.

    Go to FASC and use insurance again.

    Also do note the car shall be in FASS for 2-3 days or more depending on the approval process of Insurance guys. Plus since you already have claimed once in the current year, see if you are eligible for more claims. AFAIK in RS, you get this benefits.

    Since i do not see any major dents than its just deep scratches, i would also suggests you to get a quote from outside.

    You have already have claim hence NCB is out of question with next renewal hence better to go with Insurance. Most of the insurance has at-least two claims with zero deprecation. This will be lighter on your pocket. Yes FASS needs at-least three days to complete their job
