Accident Repair

Accident repairs carried out for ALL insurance companies

Choosing a repairer

We here at Greta Motor Body Works Ltd would be delighted if you chose us to carry out your works.

If you are concerned with the quality of repair, quality of parts used and quality of service then it is always better to choose an independent repairer over and above that selected for you by your insurer.

'Approved' repairers are often subject to budget constraints by insurers. In choosing a repairer for you, insurers are often keen to get the minimum completed to sign the job off, and this inevitably impacts on the quality of the end result for you.

It is your LEGAL RIGHT to to have your car repaired where you like, subject to reasonable cost being agreed, regardless of what your insurance company may advise you, with the exception as detailed below.

Greta Motor Body Works Ltd deals with every UK based insurer as an independent provider and can offer you the very highest quality service and repair, with a warranty for three years on mechanical works and a warranty equalling the balance of your manufacturers warranty on paintwork.

Motorists Information

The motor vehicle insurance policy holder has the right to choose the repairer who they wish to carry out the required repairs and is not obliged to use only the insurance companies appointed repairer.

This has been agreed between the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and the Association of British Insurers (ABI).

The only exception is where this, for commercial reasons, has been made an express condition of the policy and has been written into the insurance policies terms and conditions to which the policy holder has been made aware.

Your Rights

Per the agreement between the ABI (Association of British Insurers) and the OFT (Office of Fair Trading), everyone has the right to choose their own repairer. This means your insurer cannot insist you use their chosen system or repairer and you will only require one assessment from your chosen repairer.
