Know Your Rights

Had an accident? … Know your legal right!

Following an accident, it’s your legal right to have your car repaired anywhere of your choice. If you contact your insurance company it may try to get the repairs carried out at the lowest possible price without caring as much about the quality of the repair as you do. Your insurer’s ‘recommended repairer’ may not have manufacturers’ approvals and may not use genuine parts.

All insurers have an obligation governed by the FCA to ‘Treat customers fairly’. You do not need to use your insurance company’s preferred supplier and you do not need to provide two estimates.
