Accident Repair

Accident Repair


In the unfortunate event of an accident, you have the legal right to choose the repairer of your pride and joy.

Some insurance companies may try to coax the insured into allowing their appointed bodyshop to make repairs. This may well be appropriate with a mainstream vehicle. However, a specialist car, in particular a glass fibre or carbon bodyshell requires specialist skills, equipment and experience to perform a quality repair. Often “approved” bodyshops do not have these requirements in house, and sadly, the end result is less than perfect.
