Smart Facts - Getting your car repaired following an accident
You can be the safest and most cautious driver around, but that doesn't save you from the person who careers through a red light and into your car because they weren’t concentrating. Being involved in a car accident that was not your fault is bad luck – a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately no-one can turn the clock back, but you can get your car repaired and back on the road quickly, with minimum inconvenience and cost – Smart Body Shop explains how …
If you have an accident and it wasn’t your fault then you don’t need to go through your insurance company to get the repairs done. If you do then you could lose your No Claims Bonus, pay high excess charges, have to wait an unrealistic length of time for repairs, and as if often the case with insurance claim work, you may find that that the repairs are of a poor standard. So what can you do? You can choose where you have your car repaired. Choose a garage/repair centre that offers a free Insurance Claim Management Service.
What is an Insurance Claim Management Service?
Repairs centres who offer a Claim Management Service will claim directly to the third parties insurance which means it will not affect your insurance policy, there will be no insurance excess to pay and it won’t affect your No Claims Bonus. So this means you can choose your repairer and get your car repaired quickly and with minimum fuss.
