Lotus Elan Car smash repairs
My Lotus Elan needs smash repairs, what do I do now?
Chances are if you’ve been driving your Lotus Elan any number of years, you’ve probably been involved in an accident, whether it was your fault or someone else's. Unfortunately, your Lotus Elan may need to be repaired after an accident, which is where smash repairers come in. Car smash repair is the process of repairing a vehicle that has been involved in an accident to a satisfactory and roadworthy condition, ready to venture back out onto the road.
if you’ve been involved in an accident in your Lotus Elan, you’re going to either need a smash repair, or your insurance will consider if your Lotus Elan is a ‘total loss’ which means it’s either not safe, or more commonly that it will cost more than your Lotus Elan is worth to repair it back to a factory standard. If this is the case, your insurer will provide you with a payout depending on the type of cover you have.
If you’ve only been involved in a slight accident, you may be able to continue to drive your Lotus Elan as long as there are no panels at risk of falling off or lights that are damaged. However, it’s best to have any accident damage on your Lotus Elan repaired as soon as possible. It may not look bad on the surface, but underlying issues may arise from components that are difficult to see and driving around in your damaged Lotus Elan can put both you and others at risk.
Your insurance company will recommend smash repair businesses that are able to carry out the necessary repairs needed on your Lotus Elan after an accident. They will carry out an assessment of the damage and provide a quote to your insurer, who will then decide if the Lotus is worth repairing or if it will be a total loss.
If your Lotus Elan is not covered by insurance or the damage is minor and you do not want to make a claim against your insurance, smash repair business will be able to provide you with a quote to carry out repairs, but you will need to bear in mind that additional repairs may be required once your Lotus Elan has been disassembled.
