Will my vehicle be valeted after it has been repaired?

There will be occasions where we will valet the vehicle i.e. if we carry out a cab shell swap, otherwise it will be washed and hoovered, we would be more than happy to price a valet for you on request. For more information please visit our Commercial Repairs page.

BP Rolls have a wealth of experience repairing, renovating and wrapping commercial vehicles, to see a few examples please visit our Commercial Vehicles page.

Do you use green recycled parts?

We can use recycled parts when you ask us to, It is a great way to stop your vehicle being declared a total loss; it also helps reduce the claim value which may reduce your next insurance premium.

What is a write off?

It is when the value of the repairs exceeds the value of the vehicle after the salvage value has been deducted. Your insurer will let you know when the vehicle is deemed a ‘Total Loss’.

Further information and advice about vehicles that are declared a total loss can be found on the Government website: Gov.uk.

How long will the repairs take?

It will depend on the severity of the damage, the complexity of the repairs and the availability of parts. For more information please visit our Commercial Repairs page.

BP Rolls can manage all aspects of your repair, including re-printing and re-applying your vehicle’s livery. For more information, visit our Commercial Repairs or Signs & Graphics pages.

Can you repair pre-existing damage while my vehicle is in for repair?
