What are Accident Repair Centres?
Like the name describes; an accident repair centre is a place where vehicles that have been involved in accidents can be repaired. They usually offer a range of services, including:
- Bodywork repairs
- Paintwork repairs
- And mechanical repairs
These centres typically have a team of experienced and qualified technicians who can carry out the repairs quickly and efficiently.
The difference between a standard repair garage and accident repair centres are the capabilities that each one can offer.
Not all garages will be able to deal with the same level of damage caused by a road traffic accidents.

Choosing Auto Claims Assist for your accident repairs.
At Auto Claims Assist, we have our own Accident Repair Centre network, spread throughout the United Kingdom (UK) that can help get your vehicle back on the road as quickly as possible.
However, as a full service Accident Management Company, our Accident Repair Centres are only available to people who were not at fault in the car accident.
As the non-fault driver, all costs will then be covered for you as part of our claims management offering. This is where we claim back all associated accident costs and losses from the other driver’s insurance company (the at-fault driver).
Some benefits of choosing our Accident Repair Centre network include:
- We manage both your accident claim and car accident repair, so we can help you quickly and easily get your claim processed and vehicle repaired.
- Our entire repair network provide only manufacturer-approved parts and manufacturer-approved paints, ensuring your vehicle is repaired to it’s intended standard.
- Our entire repair network of accident repair centres and repair garages are BSI Kitemark accredited

Some people’s reaction to a non-fault accident is to go through their own insurance. The result of this is:
- Your insurance will likely be affected
- Your policy is known to go up after the accident
- You’ll usually be made to pay your own insurance excess
- You may lose your no claims bonus, or at least some of it

Our Accident Repair Network of BSI Kitemark Accredited Repair Garages.
An accident repair network is a group of independent centres and garages that have been quality approved and are required to meet a high-industry standard.
The Auto Claims Assist repair network is required to meet and maintain a BSI Kitemark accreditation.
We provide the highest quality of repair for thousands of customers, all year round. It is how we have been able to maintain our ‘Excellent’ rating on TrustPilot.
What is a Kitemark Approved Accident Repair Centre?
The BSI Kitemark assures that your car is repaired to the highest possible standards. The Kitemark is a quality assurance mark that assures you that the finest levels of repair have been applied to your car.
This implies that after your accident, the actual repair was performed safely and with appropriate materials by skilled technicians, so you can continue to expect the same level of protection as before.
It also ensures that we have auditing systems in place to ensure that our repair centres are fully educated and the methods employed are in keeping with industry norms.
Car parts that are approved by the manufacturer are made to meet specific standards for quality and safety. This means that they have been tested and found to be effective and reliable. When you use approved parts, you can be sure that your car will perform as it should.
Approved parts also come with a warranty from the manufacturer, so you can be sure that you’re getting a good product.
Aftermarket parts may not always fit properly, which can lead to decreased performance or even damage to your vehicle. And if something goes wrong, you may not be able to get warranty coverage.
When your car needs a paint repair after an accident, you want to be sure to use only the best on the market for your make and model.
That’s why it’s important to use manufacturer-approved paints in your repairs. These paints are specifically designed to match the original colour and finish of your car, so you can be confident that your repairs will look great.
In addition, using manufacturer-approved paints will help to protect your car’s finish from weather and other environmental damage, as opposed to cheaper paints and repairs.
