Although repair estimating is a very skilled occupation, the use of up to date technology software helps our VDA trained assessor compile his figures. Using the latest data from Thatcham and manufacturers via Audatex, the UK’s number one system for estimating. Please find the link in our advertised certification.

Thatcham is widely recognized by the vehicle industry and insurance companies, as well as accident management companies, as a reliable and efficient source of repair data.

We need to inspect your vehicle to compile an estimate. We can complete an estimate if you bring your vehicle to our site in Cato Street, Vauxhall, or as an alternative we can even come to your home or work address where we can take digital images.

To maximize our customer service and also minimize your time loss, we will contact your insurance company direct, this is the most efficient way of us getting your repairs authorised.

4 - Wheel Alignment »

In its most basic form, a wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are in line to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these adjustments is to maximize tyre life and a vehicle that tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.

MOT Test »

Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road must keep it in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that vehicles meet road safety and environmental standards. The first MOT test for a vehicle is required when it’s three years old. There are different rules if it’s used as a taxi. The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that they meet key legal requirements at the time of test. It tests:

The body and vehicle structure
Is free from excessive corrosion or damage in specific areas and there are no sharp edges likely to cause injury.

The fuel System
Has no leaks and the fuel cap fastens and seals securely. The fuel cap will need to be opened so be sure the key is available.

The exhaust emissions
The vehicle meets the requirements for exhaust emissions, dependant on the age and fuel type of the vehicle.

The exhaust system
Is secure, complete, without serious leaks and silences effectively.

The seat belts
All belts installed are checked for type, condition, operation and security. All compulsory seat belts must be in place.

The seats
The front seats are secure. Front and rear backseats can be secured in the upright position.

This is just a sample, for more information please ask when booking your vehicle in. The diagram below just gives you examples of the above.
