Shouldn’t I call my insurer first?
No. Most UK insurers want to repair your vehicle as cheaply as possible - so they send you to a repair centre that suits themand not you - their ‘nominated‘ repair centre. But that Bodyshop won’t know you, or your vehicle; it may not even operate to the latest manufacturer’s repair standards as we do, or have the latest equipment or technical knowledge. They even avoid using genuine parts - and that can harm your vehicle’s safety and resale value.
It’s your right.

When you Call Holdcroft First, our dedicated team will exercise your right to have your vehicle repaired at a Holdcroft Bodyshop.
