FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Shouldn’t I call my insurer first?
No. Most UK insurers want to repair your vehicle as cheaply as possible so they send you to a repair centre that suits them, not you – their ‘nominated’ repair centre. However, that bodyshop won’t know you, or your vehicle. It may not even operate to the latest Suzuki repair standards as we do, or have the latest equipment or technical knowledge. They even avoid using Suzuki Genuine Parts and that could harm your vehicle’s safety and resale value.
When you call Suzuki First our dedicated team will exercise your right to have your vehicle repaired at a Suzuki Approved Body and Paint Centre such as Blackshaws.
Will I need to report the claim to my insurer if you handle my claim?
No. We will notify your insurer of the accident and confirm which Suzuki Approved Body and Paint Centre it will be repaired at. If you don’t call Suzuki First, your insurer will dictate where your vehicle will be repaired and it will be too late for you to exercise your right to choose.
Is there any cost for this service?
No. This is a FREE service. There’s no catch, we simply manage the claim on your behalf. If the accident is not your fault we recover the costs from the other party’s insurer. Similarly, there is no extra cost if the accident was your fault. If you have comprehensive insurance your only liability is any uninsured cost such as policy excess.
If I call Suzuki First will it increase my next insurance premium?
Definitely not. Any increase in your next premium will be no more than if the insurer’s bodyshop carried out the repair.
I’m a Suzuki used vehicle owner – can I use this service?
This service is available to all Suzuki customers, regardless of the vehicle’s age and to anyone that drives the vehicle providing they are insured.
Can you help for all accidents, even a small dent?
Yes, even the smallest scrapes. For an accident, no matter how small, you should always call Suzuki First.
