Hi, recently my car suffered minor damage from being knocked from the back at a red light traffic stop. Repairs may cost about $800. The workshop told me it will do up my car free of charge; it will handle the insurance claim for me. I can collect the car once repaired.

I wonder how this workshop earns money from insurance claims since we do not have to pay for the repairs done.

Can anyone explain to me ? Thank you

Your insurance have excess clause? If yes, workshop just claim more to cover that amount. To what I know, they can put in more damaged parts to your car first for claim, then later put back your good parts.
Are you claiming your own insurance? How mush NCB are you at now? If at 55% not worth claiming only RM800 because after that you will have to pay full insurance.
