Volkswagen Group Approved Repairer

We are extremely proud to have been appointed as the Volkswagen Approved bodyshop for the Inchcape Volkswagen dealerships in Swindon and Cheltenham, covering the Bristol, Bath and Gloucestershire regions. We have an excellent relationship with both dealerships, which enables us to give exceptional levels of service to our mutual customers. By having the Volkswagen Group Approval also means we have approval for the Skoda and Seat brands as well.

We can carry out all repairs - from small, minor ones to large structural realignment work, and everything we do is backed by a Volkswagen guarantee certificate, that’s issued to you when the repairs are complete.

By using S J Curtis you can be safe in the knowledge that your vehicle will be repaired to Volkswagen exacting standards, using only genuine parts, manufacturer’s methodology and factory trained staff.

Insurance Claim - It's your choice

In the event of an accident, your insurance company may try to send you to one of their own insurance approved shops, where they may not use genuine parts or repair methods.

However, you have a choice where your vehicle is repaired, so why not choose the experts trained by Volkswagen. Don’t let your insurance company push to a repairer that suits them, but is not necessarily best for you and your Volkswagen. It’s your legal right to choose where your vehicle is repaired.

Volkswagen Repair Guarantee Certificate

When we’ve completed your repairs, you’ll be sent a Volkswagn repair guarantee certificate, so you can drive away safe in the knowledge that your vehicle has been repaired correctly, and your factory warranty is fully protected.

Only by insisting that your Volkswagen is repaired at a factory approved bodyshop, can you be sure and safe in the knowledge that it will be repaired correctly and re-instated to its pre-accident condition, without compromise.

Insurance approved repair centres are often instructed to repair panels (that should in fact be replaced) and fit non-genuine aftermarket parts, which can compromise the quality of repair and also affects your manufacturer’s warranty. The residual value of your vehicle may also be adversely affected if the repair is not carried out correctly to manufacturer standards.

Reasons to insist on using a Volkswagen approved bodyshop

  • Maintains the safety of your vehicle to manufacturer specifications
  • Maintains the factory body and paintwork warranty, for your peace of mind
  • Only the highest quality genuine parts are used throughout
  • Painted using manufacturer approved refinishing products, ensuring a high quality finish
  • Factory trained technicians that understand how to repair your vehicle correctly, using the latest repair methodology and equipment
  • Annual factory audits to ensure that we always meet these high standards
