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 them not you - their "nominated" repair centre. But that bodyshop won't know you, or your vehicle; it may not even operate to the latest vehicle 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.
