Paragon Vehicle Replacement Program Provides Repair and Replacement Relief to Residents with Automobiles Affected By Hurricane Sandy

In the wake of the extensive damage Hurricane Sandy caused to numerous vehicles throughout the New York area, Paragon Auto Group is offering the Paragon Vehicle Replacement Program. All New York area residents whose vehicles have sustained damage due to Hurricane Sandy are eligible for assistance in the replacement or repair of their vehicle.

“Hurricane Sandy has disrupted many people’s lives and many are now just getting their lives back together, dealing with house insurance, flood insurance, damages and much more,” said Brian Benstock, vice president and general manager of Paragon Auto Group. “We want to provide assistance so that those affected can resolve their vehicle issues not only as easily as possible, but as safely as possible.”

With many residents unable to drive their damaged vehicles due to damage or safety concerns, the program allows those affected to have their vehicles picked up for assessment and repair free of charge. Paragon will then work directly with the insurance companies to ensure claims are properly handled. All repaired vehicles will be subjected to a thorough safety and mechanical inspection to ensure that the vehicle is properly assessed and repaired fully. Additionally, all work and repairs are covered under warranty.

Those who suffer a total loss or would like to replace their vehicle will qualify for special incentives on a new vehicle from Paragon’s fully stocked inventory.  Reduced APR rates and zero-down purchase options are available, as well as no payments required for 90 days. A vehicle rental option will also be available for those in need.
