We have been members of various super-car clubs dating back to F1 World Champion Damon Hill’s P1 club & are regularly instructed by the UK’s super car dealers & specialists. Supercars such as Lamborghini, Bugatti, Ferrari, McLaren, Pagani, Aston Martin together with more popular marques fast cars like 911 GT2 / GT3, Audi R8, Ford GT do not appear in normal repair or price guides, so need an experienced eye to assist with estimating repairs and valuations; slight variations in model can have a massive effect on desirability. We have found that popular price guides can be widely inaccurate with this sort of vehicle.
They are often built with materials such as carbon fibre, plastics, aluminium which require specialist knowledge of how they react during an impact and best repair methods & practices.
The classic car market is booming right now as people realise the investments offered by vehicles, in some cases that were considered bangers not that long ago. Whilst we think of e-types, MGBs & Beetles as traditional classic car purchases, we’re seeing Capris, MR2s & 3 Series BMWs gaining value month on month, becoming viable investments.
Our Classic car specialists can assess classic vehicles for a variety of reasons; alongside our traditional accident reports, we also offer valuations which, being CPR compliant, can be used in court. These are often used for probate or divorce procedures in the legal world and for insurance & reinsurance. We can also provide a pre-purchase examination which not only includes a full valuation but a comprehensive inspection of the condition of the vehicle.
We have a selection of engineers specially trained by Thatcham to assess the correct & safe methods for repairing hybrid or electric vehicles, which often have very different electrical systems to the traditional 12v car.
As keen cyclists we have bicycle specialists in both road and mountain bikes for damage & valuation purposes.
We have an excellent relationship with the commercial vehicle bodyshops dotted throughout the UK & access to specialist information, particularly important when custom bodies or trailers are involved.
All reports comply with Civil Procedures Rules & adhere to the same super-high standards of our car reports.
