What ever your situation is we’re here to help you or at least give you a little bit more information.

Take a deep breath and just keep reading. We’ll walk you through what you need to do step by step. When you’re done reading, you’ll be ready to handle this and know what to expect every step of the way. If you do have questions any at all then go to the comment section at the bottom of this page and we’ll do our best to give you the answers you need.

What to include with the request

When you’re requesting a quote there’s no such thing as too much information. Let us know what you’re driving and what happened. Also, we need to know what you want repaired.

This might seem obvious, but not everybody wants everything repaired! The more you tell us the faster we can get back to you and the more accurate your quote will be.

And of course, seeing is believing. To get a quote, we NEED to see the damage. Don’t worry that doesn’t mean we need to come out and look at the damage ourselves to get you a quote. Of course, if you would like us to come out and give you a quote for repairs, we can do that too, but for a fee. However, we do need to see what we’re dealing with, whether in person or with pictures/videos.

Saving time.

It’s not that we don’t trust you, we just need our team of experts to evaluate everything that needs to be done to repair your vehicle. How deep is the scratch? Is the dent on a seam? There are a ton of factors that determine the complexity of a repair and thus affect the price.

We don’t want to give you a quote and then charge you more because we didn’t fully understand what needed to be done. The only way we can prevent this from happening is to get a quality picture or video of the damages.

Also, please make sure that the car is clean and dry for the picture, video, or when we come out to give you a quote. It’s extremely difficult for us to get a good look at what we need to see if it’s covered in dirt or other road gunk.

Furthermore, when the car’s wet it hides scratches and dings, which makes it harder for us to get a full understanding of the damages.

Best Practice

When taking photos or video, best practice is to take different angles and distances away from the damage so we can have an overall idea of the damage and where it is. Please see below of some examples:

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get a free quote. Of course, if you would like us to come out and look at your car to give you a quote, we can do that too! However, if we come out to give you a quote there is a £50 fee. All our other methods for getting a quote are completely FREE.

Even better all our quotes come with NO obligation. So, if you just want to know how much it’s going to cost to fix the dent that has been there for years, or if you want to know if your current body repair shop is giving you a good deal, find out for sure, we’re here to help you!

Please note that if you are requesting an in-person quote for an insurance company there is a callout £50 charge. This is because insurance quotations require special forms that we need to fill out. This additional fee is only applicable for quotes that we give you in person. All our digital quotations are FREE.
