SHOULDN’T I CALL MY INSURER FIRST?
No. Most UK insurers want to repair your vehicle as cheaply as possible, so they will send you to a repair centre that suits them not you – their ‘nominated’ repair centre. However that bodyshop
may not operate to the latest Mitsubishi repair standards, or have the latest equipment or technical knowledge.
Most insurers avoid using Mitsubishi genuine parts and will aim to use copy parts or components removed or recycled from written-off vehicles. So one minute your Mitsubishi is 100% Mitsubishi, then it isn’t. The use of such parts or other non-original Mitsubishi equipment for the repair of any collision damaged vehicle may negatively affect its crashworthiness and occupant safety in the event of a future collision, as well as your vehicle’s resale value.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL I NEED TO REPORT THE CLAIM TO MY INSURER IF YOU ARE DEALING WITH MY CLAIM?
No. Once you call MITSUBISHI FIRST we will notify your insurer of the accident and confirm which Mitsubishi Accident Repair Centre your vehicle is to be repaired at. If you don’t call MITSUBISHI FIRST, your insurer will dictate where your vehicle will be repaired and it will be too late for you to exercise your right to have your Mitsubishi repaired at a Mitsubishi Accident Repair Centre.
WHAT DO MITSUBISHI CUSTOMERS PAY FOR THIS SERVICE?
This is a FREE service to all Mitsubishi drivers in the UK – there’s no catch. We simply manage the claim on your behalf. When an accident is not your fault we recover all costs from the other party’s insurer. Similarly, there is no extra cost if the accident was your fault. Assuming that you are comprehensively insured, your only cost is any uninsured cost, such as policy excess.
WHAT INFORMATION WILL YOU REQUIRE TO MANAGE MY CLAIM?
When you call us you will not need to fill in a claim form as we will do this for you over the telephone. In the event that you are missing some details, we will assist in obtaining these.
IF I CALL MITSUBISHI FIRST WILL IT INCREASE MY NEXT INSURANCE PREMIUM?
Definitely not if you were not at fault for the accident; the other party’s insurer pays for your claim. If the accident is your fault, any increase in your next premium should be no more than if the insurer’s accident repair centre did the repair, as we approve all repair costs with your insurer prior to proceeding.
HOW WILL MITSUBISHI AND MY INSURER AGREE ON THE COST OF THE REPAIR?
We approve all repair costs with your insurer. The assigned Mitsubishi Accident Repair Centre submits an estimate of the repair cost for your insurer’s approval before proceeding with the repair. Costs for completing repairs are standardised.
HOW DOES MITSUBISHI BENEFIT FROM PROVIDING THIS SERVICE?
Mitsubishi wants to help customers at a time of stress and inconvenience. We also have a duty of care to ensure that customers’ vehicles are repaired to Mitsubishi’s exacting standards.

It is also available to anyone who drives your Mitsubishi, providing they are insured. This service can be passed on to new owners if you sell your Mitsubishi.
