Vehicle Inspections

Banwells' qualified automotive engineers and vehicle damage assessors assess damage to all types of vehicles. Our engineers are all qualified to a minimum of ATA VDA and hold the AQP Qualification for categorising vehicle salvage. 

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.

Our report includes all the information you require to successfully process, or conclude a claim.


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

Our inspections services involve all vehicles being 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, whilst undertaking the field and vehicle inspection.

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