Field Inspections

Banwells' qualified automotive engineers and vehicle assessors (qualified to a minimum of ATA VDA) assess damage to all types of vehicles.

The engineers and vehicle assessors use their wealth of knowledge to provide independent, clear and concise reports on the safe method of repair of damaged vehicles.


Using the very latest mobile reporting technology, Banwells are able report on the same day as the inspection, from the side of the damaged vehicle.

All vehicles are thoroughly examined to establish an accurate repair reserve and the vehicle’s pre-accident value.

Banwells’ systems integrate seamlessly with Audatex, Thatcham Escribe and Glass’s Repair Estimate, all of which are available to all of our automotive engineer assessors to assist them in the calculation and negotiation of repair costs.

Glass’s MVA, CAP Guide and Parkers Guide are utilised to determine vehicle values in conjunction with market research.
