Approved Insurance Repair Centre

Approved insurance repair centre

If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident anywhere in Edinburgh; Fife; Livingston; or across the Lothian region and you need an approved motorcycle insurance repair centre or a repair estimate, then Saltire Motorcycles is your ideal choice.

Insurance claims can be difficult, so it’s important you follow the correct procedures after an accident. If you have a comprehensive motorbike insurance policy then get in touch with your insurer and ask them for advice. It may be that they recommend a garage or repairer; and carrying out repairs elsewhere could risk invalidating a claim.

However, in the majority of cases you will be asked to arrange an estimate for repair. This must then be approved by the insurer before any work can be carried out. As insurers base their premiums in part on how much they have to pay out on claims it’s important that you get real value for money and approaching an approved motorcycle insurance repair centre is advisable.

The cost of repairs is your responsibility until your insurance company has agreed to pay, so for your peace of mind, you should request written confirmation that it will pay the costs once an estimate has been agreed. Then, when the work has been carried out, bear in mind that you may have to pay the first part of the claim if you have an excess on your policy.
