Some Important Facts regarding Accident repairs through Insurance Companies
Do you know that if you have an accident and your insurance company tells you that you must go to their approved repairers this is actually false information and misleading for the following reasons.
1/ They are not approved by the quality of their work but the fact that they have bought from the insurance company the postcode which means any cars from a certain area will go to them, they also have to give the insurance company a discount (normally 5%-10%) so they try to cut corners to save money which means you may think your getting new parts but this is not always the case and your parts may be repaired.
When we started we were approved by most leading companies by our standards and we have never paid to get work.
2/ Once your car is in that garage they may park it in a compound untill they have time to start the work which could be 2 or 3 weeks and the insurance company are not interested in chasing them up because they would have to pay for the repair earlier,whereas a smaller garage or someone you have used in the past will want the space and try to get your car back to you asap or at least we would.
3/ The quality of the repairs is not always up to the level of someone you may have taken your car to for years as the person you have known will try to return your car in a condition that will reflect his workmanship whereas the "approved garage"will only be interested in profit as they know more work will be coming from your area.
Our priority and has been since day one wether it be accident or mechanical repairs is to provide top class repairs at a fair price and the customer has always come first.
4/ Aslong as the garage you want to take your car to (its your property remember) is not more expensive than the "approved " garage then you can by law take it where you want.
5/ Its always better to take your car to someone you know or that has been recommended to you that will do a good job than to take a gamble on someone you do not know who may be miles away from where you live who only sees you as just another punter.
6/ Lastly if you need any help with making a claim or dealing with an insurance company or if you have been unlucky enough to have an accident then feel free to call us for any information or a free quote.
