Most UK motor insurers focus heavily on minimising the cost of repairing vehicles. Your insurer will typically direct you to one of their "approved" bodyshops. This could make a big difference to your vehicle's safety, residual value and driving pleasure. The insurer's Bodyshop may repair damaged body panels when they should replace them, and they might not have the appropriate equipment to repair your technologically advanced car. This could invalidate any manufacturer's warranty that you may have.
SDM have technicians trained and approved by the manufacturers and adopt the cutting edge technologies recommended by them. That ensures the safety of your vehicle and maintains your warranty.
If you are in an accident and own a Toyota, Mazda or Hyundai vehicle then call their aftercare service first before your motor insurer.
Your motor insurer will be notified of the accident and will confirm which approved accident repair centre it will be repaired at. There's no hassle, no claims forms and no cost.
