Working for an Accident Repair Centre


Candidates, motor trade jobs, advice and guides...

Accident Repair Centres repair and restore damaged vehicles after an accident or crash. They can be Main Dealer run Bodyshops or independently run Accident Repair Centres and will usually carry out all types of repair from SMART Repair through to major accident repairs. The team within an Accident Repair Centre will be used to working with different types of materials, engine types, hydraulic systems and electrical/electronic components that make up the vehicles on the road today.

Accident repair centres differ from a regular garage in the sense that that specialise in fixing major structural and cosmetic bodywork repairs, they’re not the place you’d usually take your vehicle for a service or MOT.

Working at an Accident Repair Centres, you will be expected to work on a diverse range of vehicles; from cars, vans and light commercial vehicles to motorbikes, caravans and motorhomes. You will come across various manufacturers in this role and will have to ensure that all work meets their standards. Fast Fit Repair Centres also have to liaise closely with Insurers to negotiate repair costs and ensuring both the customer and the insurer are clear on the agreed repairs, time frames and costs.
