The idea of using VBRA registered repairer was to protect the customer and the insurers as too many cowboy repairers and owners where trying to con them. A VBRA registered company close to me are very careful as it s quite common for drivers to try and get damage repaired which occurred before the date of the recent incident. They also take digital photos of before and after repair. If they discover additonal damage after they have commenced work - they just email the pic to the assesor and in most cases he does'nt need to re-visit - saves time and money. A large franchise complex I know of has agencies for 10 -15 differnt manufacturers ranging from Citroen to Roll-Royce, (Ferrari, Maserati, Renault, etc) and they sub-contract all their work to an independent VBRA. registered company. I think you may have a choice of who you can pick to have your car repaired as long as they are VBRA registered.
