We know you have a choice. And we thank you for trusting us to repair your vehicle.
We are registered with most leading insurance companies. Audits are done throughout the year to ensure that we adhere to prescribed protocol.
It is important that all clients familiarize themselves with their insurance policies, specifically relating to towing allowance, excess payments and car rental.
