Contior Automotive Assessors


Independent Motor Engineering Services

We provide independent motor engineering services, and offer a broad range of services suited to different client types and circumstances. For desk based services we use our in-house engineers but when physical inspections are required we use our partner network.

Our partnership arrangements are closely managed to ensure consistent quality, efficiency and maintenance of service levels.

We have the ability to estimate, inspect, assess and audit vehicle damage in a number of different ways, whether this is desktop or physically.

All our services fall under four main categories:

Inspection Services

What our clients say

"From the moment we were introduced to Contior, they have been more than accommodating while trying to get them set up as an approved supplier for Brit European. The trial reports proved very successful with a good saving for our business. Now that we are up and running as a customer we are seeing savings with almost every new instruction. The team are always very helpful over and above what they really should be for the fee that is charged and are always willing to give assistance where needed. We would 100% recommend them to any prospective customer not only for the service and savings offered but for the friendly and pleasant way in which we are dealt with."

"With the woop team having an extensive automotive engineering background obviously, we were very critical when selecting an outsourced engineering partner. One of the biggest attributes we found with the team at Contior is that they have worked in the same field in which woop operates and therefore the engineers were already aware of what our and our clients' expectations were. The team are fully conversant with the methods required to repair the modern motor car in a safe and cost-effective manner and so helping us mitigate our costs but yet deliver on the client’s expectations. Their pre-existing relationships with repairers all over the country and their high level of technical knowledge and experience has proven to be invaluable."

“Since starting our relationship with Contior we have found them to be friendly and efficient as well as providing us with significant cost savings”

''We have been very satisfied with Contior Automotive and the support we have received from the whole team. Everything can be done online and it’s great how easy it is to update and manage the online portal. We appreciate the help we receive from the inspectors on a daily basis and we can always count on the team saving us money and improving our claims cycle. We are very happy with the commitment and quality of work we’ve been receiving, and we would highly recommend the company.''

"We’ve been working with Tom and the team at Contior for almost a year now, and the service and support we’ve received has been fantastic. Our intention when looking for an another engineering partner was to appoint someone that could help us improve the quality of what we do – Contior understood the importance of working collaboratively and, like us, were keen to go beyond the traditional transactional relationships that so many Insurers insist on and maintain. We felt quite certain that their experience and the resources they employ would enable us to save us money and improve our claims lifecycles, and that has very much been the case. Beyond that though, they continue to add value to what we do and have challenged us to look at things we hadn’t previously considered important. From our perspective, there is real value in that type of partnership, and we’re delighted with how it’s gone."
