Insurance Company Approved Accident Repair Centre

Why use an Insurance Company Approved Accident Repair Centre?

Insurance Company Approved Accident Repair Centres meet Insurance Companies rigorous standards for service and quality, and they can ensure your car and warranty are fully protected to the level of quality that you purchased it at.

Before your car is repaired, ask these three questions…

  • Will you be using Genuine Parts on my vehicle – if not, why not?
  • Can I have Genuine Parts used on my vehicle?
  • Could non-genuine parts invalidate my warranty and Euro NCAP safety rating?

As technology changes dramatically, we invest heavily in training programmes for our approved body repairers to meet the high standards required to maintain vehicles.
