Crash Repairs

Unfortunately, accidents happen. At Motorview KIA we understand the problems an accident can bring and are ready to help you get the best quality repairs with the minimum of fuss. Our crash repair centre services all makes and models and is an Authorised KIA Crash Repair Centre. We handle all bodywork jobs from smallest starch or dent to major damage caused by collision. We have a state of the art spray booth which is fully compliant with all regulations regarding spray painting of vehicles. All paint used is water based and meets all environmental standards. We operate closely with insurance companies to ensure that we return your vehicle to a like new state as quickly as possible.

Generally. Insurance companies direct policy holders to their ‘approved’ repairers. As well as keeping costs down, they can also dictate the level of service and repair quality you receive. This can result in non-genuine parts being used without the repairer informing you. As well as the risk of invalidating your manufacturer’s warranty, these parts may also be fitted without the same care and attention you would receive from a Kia approved repairer.

Remember you are free to have your car repaired at the garage of your choice regardless of what your insurance company may advise. Your insurer is obliged to cover all reasonable repair costs. For advice on all insurance and repair estimates contact our service manager Gina Gallagher or email Gina has great experience in this area and can advise you at every step of dealing with your insurance company including providing estimates, providing independent pre and post-accident valuations, dealing with assessors and your insurance company. We provide a courtesy car where required.
