The insurance company’s preferred repairer or the repairer’s choice?
The desire to do the right thing is inherent in our nature as human beings. Our customers make it a point to contact their insurance companies as soon as they experience problems with their vehicles, whether it be an accident or a pranged vehicle. Providing the best information and advice on panel beaters enables them to take care of the damage on our behalf.
However, we should acknowledge that more often than not, this belief is incorrect. In most cases, they are quick to arrange panel beaters at their convenience and you cannot rely on them to provide the best panel beaters. This means you can’t be sure you’re getting a competent, suitable solution to the problem.
Not only do you risk damage to your vehicle, but you also risk injury to yourself. Considering car insurance is the best course of action. Often, you are given the option of choosing your own panel beaters or you will be forced to select a repairer that the insurer prefers.
