Our sixth insurance word of the week is: Approved repairer
Using a vehicle repairer approved by your car insurance company will take away from you the entire problem of repairing your vehicle.
You do not need to worry about haggling over bills, as your insurer will deal with the repair costs and payments on your behalf. The objective of utilising the services of an approved repairer is to get you back on the road in the shortest possible time. In addition approved repairers will normally provide a courtesy car while yours is being repaired.
In a recent survey carried out by Direct Line over half of the respondents said they had been the victims of garages overcharging or work being done on their car that wasn’t necessary, costing an average of £471 each.
One way to ensure the quality of your repairs is to take out your car insurance policy with an insurer offering an approved repairer scheme.
