The Vehicle Builders and Repairers Association (VBRA) is the lead Trade Association for Vehicle Body Building, CV, Car Body and SMART repair.

Their members adhere to strict guidelines and are regularly assessed to ensure standards are maintained.

If you are a member of the AA, RAC or other motoring organisation, ask their advice.

Consider the following points when choosing a car body repair service,

  • How busy is the garage, if they are not able to do your job immediately it may not be a bad thing, a quiet garage may be the sign of a poor reputation.
  • Check with friends or family, who do they use, word of mouth is always a useful gauge.
  • Does your insurer insist on a specific repair contractor?
  • If your vehicle is still covered by a manufacturers warranty you may need to go to an authorised dealer in order to comply with the warranty.
