Insurance Repairs

At Smooth as Glass in North Shields, we are authorised by many of the UK’s leading car and van insurance companies to carry out all kinds of vehicle bodywork damage, including crash damage (providing a jig isn’t required).

Vehicle insurance is a legal requirement to drive a motorised vehicle on UK roads. Broadly speaking there are two levels: Comprehensive and Third-Party.


A comprehensive vehicle insurance policy covers your vehicle for damage caused during a collision, whoever is at fault. It also covers damage from natural disasters, fire, theft, and vandalism.


Third-party insurance only covers damage caused by vandalism, fire, or theft. If you are involved in a collision which isn’t your fault you can claim for damage caused. Your insurance provider will claim the cost of repairs from the insurer of the person responsible.

Most vehicle insurance policies carry an excess, which means there will be a (usually) small sum payable by you, the policyholder, towards the cost of any repairs. You may also lose your no-claims bonus, although most insurers now offer the option of protecting your no-claims bonus in the event of a claim.

Vehicle insurance policies do not cover replacement parts and/or repairs due to worn or malfunctioning parts.

To make an insurance claim following damage to your vehicle’s exterior, you will need to follow the process of having the damage assessed by your insurer, and your claim approved. Once that process is complete, Smooth as Glass in North Shields will provide an estimate and carry out the work required following approval from your insurer.

Smooth as Glass in North Shields only uses the highest quality products, tools, and equipment, from PPG Paints to our Dalby downdraft booth. We never compromise or cut corners at any stage of the repair process so you’re guaranteed stunning results, every time.
