Insurance claims can be complicated and lengthy. We can help you to decide whether it is the right option for you regarding price and possible increased premiums and excess fees also loss of no claims discount. 

If you do decide to make an insurance claim, we can provide you with an insurance quote and deal directly with your insurance company should you wish us to. We have lots of experience in this matter and can take the hassle away from you. Once we have authority from your insurance company we can contact you to organise a convenient time for you to book your vehicle in for repairs and offer a free collect and deliver back service to your choice of location, work or home. 


We can also help with 3rd party claims. If your vehicle has been damaged by someone else, please get in touch today so we can advise you of your rights. You do not have to use your insurance company’s approved repairer - you have a choice.  Also, in most cases, you should not have to pay anything up front for a no-fault claim. 

Some insurance companies direct you towards their chosen repairers. They imply that you do not have an option about where your vehicle is repaired - but you do.
