If Your Car Needs to be Repaired, Call Panel One First
Regardless of who is at fault, before you raise a claim call Panel One first. We have a long-standing relationship with the major insurers and can advise you of things you can do to fast-track the repair and return of your vehicle.
An Official Quote
When you submit a claim, you’ll be provided with a unique claim number by your insurer and instructed to obtain an official quote for the repair. This can only be performed by a trained and experienced professional with intimate knowledge of the vehicles make and model. Depending on the extent of the damage, this should take no more than 20 to 30 minutes.
Most insurance companies allow freedom to choose your repairer, provided they are fully accredited. Simply provide the name of your insurance company and claim number to Panel One and we’ll take care of the rest.
To arrange a quote, either call Panel One or complete and submit the following Form. Don’t forget to include your claim number as this will help fast-track approval of the repair.
An Insurance Assessment
In addition to the official quote, an Assessor from your insurance company must inspect your vehicle to approve the claim. In most cases, both can be done on the same day. To do so, your vehicle will be required at Panel One before 9 am on the date arranged and if you choose to leave it with us, work will commence immediately after the Assessment.
