Don’t want the hassle of dropping off your car?
Life can be busy, we know this, so we’re happy to arrange for it to be picked up and dropped off when the work has been completed, fitting everything around your day.
But it doesn’t stop there. We’re used to having control at our fingertips, so we’ve developed an online tracker that will allow you to keep an eye on your car’s progress from your phone or laptop. Your assigned engineer will also personally monitor the work and keep you updated every step of the way, so you can go about your day with peace of mind.
There are many factors that are considered when a garage will quote for a repair. The main factor would be the area of damage. Minor damage such as dents should cost no more than £200, whereas a gearbox repair or engine repair could cost over £500.
A quote for repairs may vary depending on the type, location and severity of damage. Cosmetic damage will likely be less than £500 whereas structural damage meaning the car is not suitable for use may cost over £1000.
If you are the owner of the vehicle, then you have the right to choose where it is repaired after an accident. Your insurance provider may advise you to use certain mechanics but, in most cases, it is your choice.
The average hourly rate for a car repair is between £60 and £120 in the UK, depending on your location. This cost doesn't include any replacement parts that you may need. Our engineers search for cheaper parts and labour costs when handling repairs, meaning you get the best prices.
Car insurance providers use damage level categories to decide if a car can be repaired. Category A and B damage cannot be repaired, and the vehicle must be declared a total loss. Category S damage is structural, and the car can be repaired. Category N damage is cosmetic or electrical and may be repaired if the fault is not a severe electrical one.
If the repair cost is more than the value of your car, it’s not worth the repair. Your insurer will decide if the damage is so severe that the car needs to be written off. This is when MotorEasy GAP Insurance would step in to cover the difference between the insurers pay out, and what you initially paid for the vehicle (dependant on what type of GAP insurance you purchase).
Unless the scratches are caused by other damage on the vehicle, then they don’t need to be fixed. It is also your choice as to whether you’re happy with them left on the car or not. If you purchased MotorEasy Cosmetic Repair Insurance , they may be covered under your insurance and one of our repairers could fix them at your home or work. This is also useful if you lease the car as the dealer will want them to be repaired before you hand the vehicle back.
While some engine noises are common, sometimes a ticking noise is a sign of a problem. Common reasons for a ticking noise include low oil pressure, low oil level, an exhaust leak, bad spark plugs, or worn valves.
