Only 1% of repair affect the engine

We carried out a detailed analysis of 200 motor repairs arranged by us during a week.

Only 1% of the repairs affect the engine. Under our repair practice, we send these cases to the distributor as it involves the use of specialised equipment, that are available from the distributor.

5% of the repairs require "mounting of the engine" but not repair to the engine. This means that the engine has to be removed to allow repairs to be done to other damaged parts, and mounted back. This can be done by external workshop without any risk at all.

The remaining 95% do not affect the engine or mounting of the engine. They are usually on minor dents and replacement of exterior parts of the vehicle. They can be done by external workshops quite easily. Many of the people working in these external workshops had their experience working for the distributors previously.

Conclusion? You only need to pay a high price for 1% of repairs that has to be done by the distributor. For 99% of cases, you can go to an external workshop and enjoy up to 50% saving and get satisfactory quality of repair.
