At Grandons Toyota we understand complications and inconvenience an accident can bring and we are here ready to help you get the best quality repair with little or no fuss. We handle Crash Repairs for all makes and models. We handle all bodywork jobs from the smallest scratch or dent to major damage caused by impact or collision. We operate closely with the insurance companies to ensure that your car is returned to a like-new condition as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Insurance companies can send policyholders to their 'approved' repairers. As well as keeping costs down, they can also dictate the level of service and repair quality you receive. This can sometimes result in non-genuine parts being used without the repairer informing you. As well as the risk of invalidating your manufacturer's warranty, these parts may also be fitted without the same care and attention you would receive from a Toyota Dealer. We use Genuine Toyota Parts on all our Toyota repairs.
Remember it is YOUR CHOICE to have your car repaired at the garage of YOUR CHOICE regardless of what any Insurance company may say to you. Your insurer is obliged to cover all reasonable repair costs.

Write down Insurance details (Name & Policy No) from the windscreen insurance disc of the other vehicle(s), OR take a photo of the insurance discs.
Photographs are of huge importance If you have no camera or mobile phone camera ask your passengers or witnesses for one. Video is also a good option - available on most smart phones.
Write down the sequence of events leading up to the accident as soon as possible and the times while it is fresh in your mind.
Generally the conditions in your insurance policy say that you must not admit liability. Therefore, do not accept or sign any admission of liability. Instead, call your insurance company immediately.
