Repairs That Are More Than Just Skin Deep
Despite what your Insurance Company may say you are fully entitled to specify where you have your car repaired. Naturally we would recommend that all Volvo's are repaired using a Volvo Approved Body and Paint Centre where all correct repair procedures are followed and genuine Volvo parts are used.
Volvo's Approved Body & Paint network is ready to repair your car to Volvo's high safety and quality standards. When turning to an approved Volvo Body & Paint Centre, you can be certain that your car will be repaired only by trained technicians – experts on Volvo and fulfilling Volvo's high body repair competence standards.
You may not be aware that Insurance Companies are reducing costs by having non genuine parts fitted or panels repaired rather than replaced, which may compromise the cars safety and integrity. With the Volvo approved network only Volvo Genuine Parts are used, ensuring that the highest safety, quality and environmental demands are met.
Thanks to the perfect fit and finish, Volvo Genuine Parts help make the job more efficient and the result perfect. Volvo Body & Paint Centres also have all the right equipment for maximum efficiency and repair quality, including a number of Volvo-specific tools.

Record the claim number allocated by your Insurance Company and visit us so that we can prepare an estimate for the repair. While you visit us, please provide us a copy of the Police Report, Claim Number, and Name of your Insurance Company. Estimate preparation has to be immaculate and depending upon the extent of damage, we will need a rigorous inspection and estimation of the damage. We will fax or email the estimate to your Insurance company as soon as its prepared for them to approve it and on their approval the repair work will be done.
The estimates are approved by your insurance company once the Surveyor inspects the damage personally and validates our estimate. If the car is in a drivable condition, you can chose to drive the car and bring in the car to us for the Surveyor to see at a time agreed by the Surveyor. We will start the repair work as soon as the Surveyor approves and your Insurance company sends us an official purchase order specifying the claim number to start the work.

Depending on your car Insurance Company’ instruction, if required we would inform of any excess payment collection required from you that we collect for your Insurance Company.
Your Volvo representative will inform you of the vehicle preparation status and a completion date . Depending on the extent of damage, additional repair jobs related to the accident in some cases can only be gauged as the technician works on your car.
