If my vehicle's chassis is damaged, is my vehicle a total loss?
No. A car is a total loss only when the price of repairs exceeds approx 75% of the insurance company's determined value of your vehicle. Our highly skilled technicians, with the aid of our state of the art Chief Genesis computer measuring system, can return your vehicle to its original factory specifications.

No. It is your right to choose your own repairer. We would recommend using a reputable long-standing repairer that is a guaranteed and preferred repairer for major Insurance companies.

Under new State Government legislation it is illegal for your insurance company to dictate where you get your car fixed. You have the right to choose your repairer
If I claim on my insurance will I have to pay an excess even though I am not at fault?
If you have all of the details of the third party involved, there is no reason why an excess should apply. You are much better off putting the claim through your own insurance company to avoid all of the delays associated with a third party insurance claim.
