Your Car – Your Choice

If you are involved in an accident it is a stressful event so it is easy to follow standard processes to get your vehicle repaired and back on the road with the minimum of hassle, and assume the only option is to have your vehicle repaired at an accident repair centre recommended by your insurance company .. always remember it’s your choice.

Know your rights

Insurance companies tend to direct policy holders to their “approved” repair shops as it is highly likely that these repairers are chosen as they offer the most cost-effective solution to repair your vehicle for the insurance company.

Some of these companies may have to use non -genuine parts as part of their agreement this could invalidate your manufacturer’s warranty.

Why compromise

The Office of Fair Trading and The British Board of Motor Insurers have agreed that policyholders have the right to choose where their vehicle is repaired, regardless of the Insurance Companies advice.

Therefore you, as a policy holder, are not obliged to use your insurers approved repairer and you can insist that you have your vehicle repaired by the accident repair centre YOU choose.

Some of these companies may have to use non -genuine parts as part of their agreement this could invalidate your manufacturer’s warranty.
