Accident repair scheme from Mazda

Damaged Mazda vehicles that are on the verge of being written-off by car insurance firms can benefit from discounted repairs offered under the manufacturer's new 'Save It' accident repair scheme.

The latest move is aimed at helping boost the carmaker's parts business, while Mazda Approved Accident Repair Centres can also see an increase in their revenue.

David Wilson-Green, aftersales director at Mazda UK, said: "Scrapping a car is hugely inconvenient for a customer and will invariably cost them money.

"Customers also have to wait for an insurance company to pay out and then rush to find a replacement vehicle at a time usually inconvenient to themselves.

"While customer satisfaction and convenience is paramount, it also makes good business sense for our dealers who supply the parts for the repairs and our approved accident repair centres to do the work, it also keeps a customer in their Mazda for potential future servicing and parts sales."

Under the latest scheme, vehicles that require expensive repairs after getting involved in a crash and which would have forcedcar insurance providers to write them off will now be fixed at reduced prices at a Mazda Approved Accident Repair Centre.
