Our Network

Here at National we are very proud to boast one of the largest networks of repairers throughout the UK with 450+ centres repair and our network is continuing to expand.

Each and every one of our centres carry the BS10125 Accreditation along with the BSI Kitemark of Approval and they are measured against Key Performance Indicators on an ongoing basis to ensure that they all maintain the levels of excellence that we insist upon. Our network has specialist repairer centres for different body type vehicles including centres for Cars, Electric vehicles, Hybrid vehicles, LCV/ Vans, HGV and Motor homes.

ADAS Calibration

ADAS (Advanced driver-assistance systems) is the electronic system that assists you whilst driving your vehicle for increased road safety. These systems are common in newer vehicles including electric and hybrid engine types. ADAS functions include autonomous emergency braking, lane assist, traffic assistance and more.

ADAS Re-set capabilities

A ‘re-set calibration’ process is carried out to correct the alignment of cameras and sensors after a collision. Faults can be swiftly diagnosed using the latest scanning equipment found at all our repair centre sites, where issues are quickly discovered and a ‘reset’ or ‘restore’ function is carried out.

This work is tracked and reported on, all within our systems that monitor vehicle repair progression.

Electric and Hybrid

National has a growing network of over 300 repair centres with electric and hybrid repair capabilities.

We have strict minimum standards of repair and procedure in place and our repairers are required to qualify with a minimum level 2 electric vehicle and ATA certification before they are permitted to work on any vehicle repair.

Research shows increased purchases of electric/hybrid vehicles and we expect it to rise. National will adapt with insurers to accommodate this and making sure the customer experience is kept positive, cycle times are kept down and overall disruption is reduced; regardless of the type of engine involved.
