Photo tips

for assessing damage

Damage to your car is always inconvenient. To get you back on the road as quickly as possible, we offer you the possibility of having the damage to your car assessed digitally. Based on clear photos taken by you, we can select a repairer for you who will come and pick up your damaged car, repair it and bring it back to you at the same location. This allows you to save time and to find yourself in a stronger legal position.
