I wholly accept my responsibility under the terms of the policy and as you obviously realise I am only concerned that I do not end up with unnecessary financial loss.
I am not sure if this is a silly question but does the fact that the policy refers to the "recommended" repairer as opposed to "approved" repairer have any relevance.
Also, please forgive my OCD kicking in :-) but when you refer to me "not being the " forts" I assume you mean the "first".
The policy refers all the way through to recommended repairers.
However it does also say that I CAN choose not to have repairs done by them but this will cost an additional £200. I am guessing from this that the wording is irrelevant.
One last question: Is it reasonable for me to expect that they transport my car on another vehicle rather than drive it to and from the repair shop which is 40 miles away.
