Image Upload

Image upload

You can upload images you have of the damage to your car.

The images must be under 500Kb in size.

You can send us a photo of the damage to your car. Select Browse to locate the file on your computer. The file should be a jpeg (JPG) image and should be under 500kb in size. You can upload a maximum of five images.

Here’s some advice about taking photos of damage to your car, first the types of photo:

  1. Take a picture showing the car with the registration number visible.
  2. Take a picture showing the car’s speedometer/mileage if possible.
  3. Take a picture showing the overall damage on the car if possible.
  4. Take a picture showing the detail of the damage eg a close-up of the front wing.
  5. Try to get a photo showing any specific damage eg water marks in the case of a flood claim or the ignition lock in the case of a theft claim.

Some general pointers:

  1. If you take a photo inside the car of the speedometer, try one with the flash off, it might make it easier for the detail to be seen.
  2. Don’t get too close! Keep about 70cm (2ft) away from the car, use the zoom instead.

Aviva’s approved repairer network

At Aviva we strive to provide an excellent service when you need it most. That’s why we’ve built up an extensive network of vehicle repair specialists to meet your needs.

There are many advantages to using one of our Aviva approved repairers:

  • Peace of mind — Using an Aviva approved repairer you can relax knowing your vehicle is in safe hands and is backed by a 3 year guarantee on all repairs. Plus Aviva approved repairers meet BSI Kitemark and/or vehicle manufacturer standards, meaning they’re qualified to carry out the highest standard of repair.
  • Great service — All Aviva approved repairers understand what great service means and have strict customer satisfaction targets.
  • Mobility — If you have selected a courtesy vehicle* option on your policy you’ll receive a courtesy vehicle while your vehicle is being repaired. If required the repairer can collect your vehicle and leave you with a courtesy vehicle.
  • Flexibility — If following an accident your vehicle is still roadworthy, you can bring your vehicle to one of the Aviva approved repairers or, if it’s more convenient, the repairer can come and collect the vehicle from you. Then once the repairs have been made we will bring the vehicle back to you. We can also come to you and assess the damage to your vehicle following an accident if it’s more convenient.
  • Speed — We can authorise approved repairs within 24 hours from the damage assessment, and some repairers are able to start work on your vehicle immediately without Aviva’s authorisation. Aviva approved repairers aim to return your vehicle at the earliest convenient date for you.

* Courtesy vehicle add-on is not available on Third Party, Fire and Theft policies
