Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately accidents do happen. Our team are fully trained to deal with all aspects of your claim, from dealing directly with the insurance company, or simply assisting you along the way. Our aim is to make the claim process as hassle free as possible. Our commitment to care is one of our core values, and with this in mind we don’t just see a repair or a claim, but put you, the owner, first and foremost with everything we do. Below are some frequently asked questions, but if you can’t see what you’re looking for please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

How long will it take before repairs are started?

Once repairs are authorised, you will be given a book-in date. This allows time for replacement parts to be purchased and minimises the length of time we need your car on site.

Why can delays occur during the repair process?

No two car repairs are exactly the same. Occasionally there can be a delay in parts delivery, additional parts may be identified during the repair process or your insurers may need to inspect your vehicle. In this case repair could be delayed in obtaining supplementary authorisation from your insurers.

How will I know when the repairs are finished?

Our Customer Service staff will give you an approximate completion date, where possible, when the car is booked in. Delivery after repairs will be agreed by phone.

Will my car be driven by your staff?

Yes. For collection and re-delivery, and for certain types of repair - normally involving mechanical procedures - we will road test your car after the repair process, for your safety.

Can I choose when I have my vehicle delivered back to me?

We will provide an indication of morning or afternoon delivery. The courtesy car must be available to us at all times.

Do you guarantee work undertaken to my vehicle?

All body repairs are guaranteed for a minimum of 12 months, or to the service level agreed with your insurer. Please note: service items, such as friction materials, are guaranteed only against faulty manufacture or fitting. 

What if I have a problem during the guarantee period?

Customer satisfaction is important to us. Let us know what your problem is, and we will sort it out as soon as possible. Take a look at how Lloyds Autobody expertly carry out the car repair process.

McLaren Owner
Dear Mr Hartwell, I just wanted to email you to say how very impressed I was with the service I have received from Pete at your facility today (and indeed last week). He could not have been more helpful and made the problem with my McLaren paint very painless to sort out. His very pleasant and helpful attitude is really impressive, and he should be congratulated as he is a real asset to your company. I will certainly be using your bodyshop for any issues I have with any of my cars in the future.

Audi Owners
Hi Lee, I hope you are well. Thank you very much for all your help in repairing my wife’s Audi from initial advice about next steps to completing the work. We are delighted with the work you and your team have completed and the car looks immaculate. I have yet to test the rear wash/wipe as I don't want to get the car wet (until it rains) as the car looks so amazing. The quality of repair is certainly much better than we ever hoped for. We chose yourselves for the repair due to your reputation and you certainly lived up to that. Hopefully I won't be needing your services in the near future but if we ever need any bodywork repairs or any of your other services we would certainly chose yourselves. Please pass on our appreciation and thanks to all your colleagues - all of whom were always extremely courteous and professional.

AMG SLS Customer
Hi Lee - just a quick note to say a big thank you for sorting out the damaged SLS roadster. By taking over the co-ordination of the works and various pick ups / deliveries etc you made the whole experience much less stressful. I collected the car last week from Jay at Miglior and it looked absolutely amazing. Thanks again for a first class service.
- Roger M
Bentley GT Customer
Dear Lee, Just a quick note to say I am delighted with the repair you and the Lloyds team have carried out on my car. The service from end-to-end has been outstanding and I really appreciate the communication and update throughout. When I collected the car it looked like it was fresh off the assembly line…….the paint, body work and attention to detail is simply awesome. Thank you so much and please cascade my thanks to the individuals who did such a great job.
- Mark D
Tesla Customer
Hi Lee, Further to my recent repair, having recently got the car back I thought to drop you a line and say how happy I am with the repair Lloyds Autobody carried out. The repair and paintwork excellent, and the car came back to me pristinely clean, once again thank you for your efforts and attention throughout the process.
- Michael M
Audi S Customer
Hi Lee, just thought I'd drop you a line to say a big thank you for repairing my Audi after it was involved in a crash recently. I was highly impressed by the efficient, courteous manner of both yourself and the staff at Lloyds and the work that was carried out on the car was both thorough and to a very high standard, resulting in my car being returned to concours standards. It's not often that expectations are exceeded in this day and age, but I'm glad to say that in this case they were!
