The state insurer, the Instituto Nacional de Seguros (INS) says it plans to invest just over US$12 million in the construction of nine workshops in different areas of the country to review and evaluate insured vehicle for repairs.
Founded in 1924, the Instituto Nacional de Seguros (INS) operated as a state-owned monopoly until 2008, when Costa Rica’s insurance market was opened up.
The cost of the nine workshops, called Red de Centros de Inspección de Daños (CID) – Damage Inspection Centers Network – will be built in different parts of the country.
In the Greater Metropolitan Area of San Jose (GAM) they will be in Pavas, Curridabat, Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago. Around the country, workshops will be located in Liberia (Guanacaste), Perez Zeledon, Esparza (Puntarenas) and Guapiles (Limon).
