Hear What Customers Say About The Hartford’s Auto Claims Service

“From the initial phone call to claims that I had an accident, to picking my car up after repairs. My Hartford experience was the best. I highly recommend The Hartford!”
“We had been on extended vacation out of state when we were out on an excursion for hours. And returning back to the parking lot, found our vehicle had been damaged. Without any witness, we called The Hartford. They had told us to wait until we got home since we were able to drive our car. Upon arriving home we called. They walked us through our claim. Within days, we had a check in the bank to cover costs.”
“From my initial call to The Hartford claims folks to walking out the door of the auto body shop with my newly-repaired car, every interaction – whether the claims folks, the auto body shop, or the car rental folks – was promptly and professionally handled. I was stressed to be in the position of needing a repair, but every person I dealt with worked hard to reduce my stress and facilitate getting the work done with respect for my time and money.”
“The claims service has always been handled quickly and hassle free. I have, unfortunately, had several claims and each time the service has always been excellent!”
Car Insurance Claims “I was apprehensive about filing a claim because it is the first I have had to file. The insurance spokesperson I spoke with (as well as the claims person assigned to me) were thorough, professional, and easy to deal with. It was made clear to me that I could take my car to any body shop for repairs but, at my request, they recommended a shop in a nearby town that did a fantastic job. All paperwork was handled through that body shop.”
