If a vehicle is in need of car accident repairs, local motorists can rely on the technicians at our accident repair centre to manage their insurance claim. It’s a common misconception that car owners are restricted to using garages recommended by their insurance company, but this is not the case. At the Dorking Accident Repair Centre Ltd, we can advise private, fleet and trade clients on how to claim for crash repairs from their insurance provider.
Once approved, we can carry out a wide-range of car body repairs, such as chassis realignment or dent repairs, particularly in the event of non-fault accidents.
The standard practice for insurers is to recommend Dorking motorists to approved garages. These “official” accident repair centres, however, are penalised by insurance companies if their rates for crash repairs are too high and this results in more vehicles being made a total loss. Thankfully, policy owners have the right to choose their own certified garage.
This is an increasingly common occurrence because local motorists who have experienced their brand of car body repairs in the past trust non-approved workshops more.
If you are satisfied with the quality of service from your local garage, we suggest that clients inform their insurer of where they want their car taken immediately. When dealing with non-fault car accident repairs, the team at the Dorking Accident Repair Centre Ltd liaises with insurance providers, engineers and loss adjusters before crash repairs begin.
We have a strong reputation amongst motorists in the Dorking area, providing reliable, high-quality car body repairs. If you require panel beating for dent repairs, we can arrange this for you. Any car accident repairs are certified by Kitemark. This accreditation, issued by the British Standards Institute (BSI), shows that Dorking Accident Repair Centre Ltd carries out crash repairs which meet manufacturer standards and which comply with BS 10125.
Our specialists in non-fault crash repairs will help Dorking motorists by contacting the third party’s policy provider, as well as mediating with the client’s own insurer, to get the authorisation for any necessary car body repairs which need to be carried out. This is the first step to ensure all repairs following impact from a major collision will be covered.
Depending on the extent of damage your vehicle has suffered, our accident repair centre is fully-qualified to resolve the following issues:
When you choose Dorking Accident Repair Centre Ltd, we handle crash repairs on your behalf from start to finish. Once we’ve processed the claim for car accident repairs, clients generally won’t have to pay out any excess. However, we recommend that you check your insurance policy to confirm this. Most policies include an insurance excess which we receive payment for once the work has been completed.
If Dorking drivers are not covered by one of our company’s insurance partners, we can usually pay a large part of the excess amount. All excess fees for car body repairs, including dent repairs, will be calculated based on an individual basis.
