Unfortunately we no longer are able to accommodate Insurance repair work due to the constraints the Assessors put on every job. We believe in doing a thorough job regardless of the circumstance, but Insurance Companies are increasingly squeezing repair jobs to within an inch of their lives, meaning we have to choose between doing a proper job or barely breaking even on it. Doing Insurance work also takes us away from doing what we are designed and set up to do, and disrupts the workshop for little or no gain.
Really sorry for anyone who is affected by this; I don't think we will be the last to withdraw from the Insurance market, and it will mean repairs will be carried out by people happy to cut corners in order to make a profit on these jobs. There will be no winners except the Insurers themselves.

Many moons ago a naive 20 something opened a VW Specialist workshop in Cardiff due to the local market lacking the levels of care and passion for the older models. Years of hard dedication in the workshop and very little dedication to the day to day running of the business meant that when this 20 something finally had a daughter he felt he needed to go and work for someone else. That didn't work out, provided him with lots of "character-building" moments, and Body & Soul was born out of a yearning to return to what truly motivated the much older chap. As Mark Twain mused:
"Genius has no youth but starts with the ripeness of age & old experience"
