There are two routes for repair of damaged vehicles: an insurance claim or a private repair.
With an insurance claim we would view and assess your vehicle.Once our estimator has located parts prices and labour charges he will then contact your insurance company or yourself to discuss. Insurance companies often employ an independent middleman called a “loss adjuster” who will view the vehicle, check the calculation and authorise the repairs to go ahead. Once an authorisation note has been received by us we can then order parts, arrange a mutually convenient date to book the car in and organise a loan car if required.
The repairs will be carried out by our dedicated Accident and Insurance repair team. Once the vehicle has been repaired and cleaned we will call you to arrange collection. Upon collection you will be required to check over the repairs and sign an authority note (which basically states that the repairs have been carried out) which we forward onto the insurance company with our invoice to request payment. Dependent on your personal arrangements with your insurance company you may also be liable for an excess.
Excesses are an amount which you are personally liable for. For example, if you have a soft top car your insurance may determine that for each and every claim you make you will have to contribute £150. This amount is non negotiable and is payable direct to us. Insurance companies tend to do this in order to reduce the number of small claims.
If you or someone else damages your vehicle and you decide not claim on your insurance (I.e. to prevent your premium going up etc.) or maybe your cars market value is low you might like to consider having it repaired privately.
Again we will arrange a time to view the car and produce an estimate based on the cost of parts prices and the estimated labour involved in the dismantling, repairing and refitting. If the estimate is approved by you then we arrange a suitable time to have your vehicle delivered
We will carry out the repairs, clean the car and arrange a suitable time for collection. An invoice will be issued, payable on receipt (unless other arrangements have been agreed) and your car will be waiting for you.
