    Has anyone here used "Just Car Clinic". This is the Insurance repair company I have been given to fix my car after a little run in with a blind bus driver. Apparently they are a VX approved repairer.

    Theres one at the bottom of the industrial estate where I work in wakefield. Not had an experience with a car, but we took our Iveco van to them after some light front end damage, and the repair was awful. The paint wasn't even a close match and once it started peeling off the bonnet, you could see that they hadn't even prep'd the surface first. I'll post up some quick pics tomorrow so you can see, but like I said, not had experience with a car so it might just have been the size of the van.

    You know you don't have to have it repaired at the Approved repairer your insurance company say?, despite what they may try and say.

    if you have a dealer that you trust and want to use, you can tell your insurance company you want it to go there - they can't refuse. By not going to an AR you may lose out on things like how long you can have a courtesy car for etc., but they can't refuse to have the car repaired at the place of your choice.

    had my focus fixed at the one in doncaster a few years ago when an old fella ran into my passenger door an rear quarter panel. they removed the dints and re-aligned the door/rear quarter panel fine. but after about 2 weeks you could faintly see where the 14 inch scratch was on the rear quarter panel... not very good on a black car

    also the paint started chipping on bottom of the repaired door right on edge

    Did try complaining but tbh they wasn`t interested in the slightest. They basically insisted i`d opened my door onto something (wall / other car) and that the scratch was not part of the repairs and had been done after it was returned to me. Even tho you could clearly see the laminted top coat wasn`t broke and the scratch was below unbroken paint (if that makes sense?)

    gave up trying after many calls to the repairer and my insurance company.needless to say my insurers are not the same company anymore (tescos).

    They told me that in a roundabout way after a bit of persuasion, thing is I use my car for work and if I was left without a car then I would be stuffed.

    My wife had a slight mishap in Asda car park. She decided that she wanted to restyle her Fiat Stilo rear nearside wheel arch and rear door. And bent the rear axle .

    I have NO idea how she managed to do over 2 grands worth of damage, but she did.

    Used JCC in Mansfield and can only fault them on the rear door card rebuild, they had missed a screw out. Probably lost it and didn't replace it.

    Apart from that, they were fine.

    Surely they need to quote for te job cheaper or the same as the approved repairer, otherwise it would be open to all kinds of abuse, you could choose a freinds garage and shaft the insurance company ??
