Who are Banwells?

Banwell and Associates Ltd is a market leading firm of automotive engineering and vehicle assessments, specialising in all matters relating to motor vehicles and road traffic accidents.

Based in Burnley, Lancashire, but offering extensive coverage throughout the UK, with regards to automobile engineering, we pride ourselves on the promptness and quality of the work that we produce.

We are the preferred supplier of a number of insurance companies and law firms throughout the UK when it comes to vehicle assessment and automobile engineering and provide independent authoritative advice on behalf of Claimants and Defendants in the Civil Courts and on behalf of the Defence or Prosecution in the Criminal Courts.


Over the years Banwells has expanded and added additional services to the portfolio to become a market leader in Automotive Engineering and vehicle assessing.

In June 2010 Banwells was acquired by GBB (UK) Holdings Ltd and became a sister company of GBB (UK) Ltd.

Further expansion occurred in August 2011 with the acquisition of HW Bell & Co Ltd. This acquisition extends vehicle assessing coverage down into London and beyond.
