If your Volkswagen has been damaged in an accident then your insurer will most likely want to choose the repairer. For your piece of mind make sure that they are of the standard set by Prestige Car Body Repairs.
Modern Volkswagen models include aluminium or high tensile steel structural parts, which means your vehicle needs the expertise of specialists trained in handling, repairing and replacing those innovative lightweight materials.
Cutting the weight of a vehicle’s structure, suspension, door, bonnet and boot closures enables a manufacturer to deliver improved fuel economy and emission results, or better performance for a given engine, or improved comfort or safety features for a predetermined weight. The industry then is turning towards lighter and more rigid structural parts, and high strength steels such as Boron Steel.
Because some of the advanced high strength steel, for example, obtain their properties during rapid cooling in the production process, they can’t be heated and straightened in the local garage.
In order to achieve manufacturer approvals we are required to have the most up to date car body repair equipment. Prestige Car Body Repairs boast a spray booth, jig, inverter spot welder, VAS6150 diagnostic machine, headlamp aligner, wheel balancer, estimating systems, infra red paint drying and most importantly for you we only use manufacturer approved parts, paint and materials. Our engineers are trained by Volkswagen to repair your vehicle to manufacturer standards which are much higher than those of most insurance companies.
Often it is the case that even your insurer does not fully understand the implications of using a lesser-qualified repairer. In fact, it is potentially dangerous to assume that any accident repair centre can repair your vehicle.
