Insurance companies direct policyholders vehicles into their 'approved' repairers - a network of companies they have chosen with the aim of keeping their costs down.
They also dictate the level of service and the quality of the repair you and your car will receive.
Also, non original parts are frequently used which may not fit correctly and will probably invalidate your manufacturers warranty.
Why compromise on the quality of your vehicle repairs?
It has been agreed with the Office of Fair Trading and The British Board Of Motor Insurers that as a Motor Vehicle insurance policy holder you have the right to choose where to have your vehicle repaired regardless of your insurance companies advice.
You are not obliged to use their approved repairer and you can insist on having your vehicle repaired by a
Approved Accident Repair Centre like Barry Baker Vehicle Repairs.
