How to find the most cost effective, acceptable repair for your damage.
So what's the problem?
You have some damage on your car and you aren't sure what to do next:-
"The bottom line is that you want to get the job done right, at the best possible price."
- Claim on the insurance
and pay the excess.
- Pay to have it repaired yourself.
- Return it to the lease
and accept the recharge.
You want to pay less
In most cases where the damage is minor, such as a small scrape or dent, it would be cheaper to have the work done yourself -- they may come in under the cost of the excess anyway. But how do you know that you are getting good value for money, and still going to end up with a repair which will be acceptable to the lease company?
You need an acceptable repair
If you have a car-body repair on a small scuff, you could end up paying more than you need to, but if you have a Small Area Respray/Smart Repair on a scuff which is too big, you could end up with a repair which isn't good enough to pass inspection. What you need is someone you can trust who knows all the options and can advise you which is most appropriate and cost effective.
Three easy steps
To find out your repair options just do the following:-
- Take a photo of the damage with your phone.
A couple of photos from different angles is best.
- Upload the photos to our website. [form]
