Save time after a collision by going to an accredited Direct Repair shop to get an authorized Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) Claim estimate. MPI Direct Repair is available to Manitoba drivers to speed up their car accident repair estimate and repairs on eligible claims, with an accredited direct auto body repair shop, in or outside Winnipeg.
An MPI-accredited direct repair shop is a collision centre that has met the strict standards set by Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) for completing safe and proper auto body and car accident repairs.
Now, after a car accident, repair claims can be estimated and processed directly through an MPI direct repair shop. This saves you time.
Many newer vehicles are made with materials and technologies that improve safety and fuel efficiency. Repairing these may require specialized training, equipment and methods available only from an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or certified facility. CARSTAR is an auto body shop that is certified to do many OEM repairs. Once we know your vehicle’s make, model and year, we can properly assess your OEM direct repair requirements.
Document the Event
If another car was involved in the car accident and needed repair, take photos of the damage on both vehicles. Exchange names, contact info, driver’s license and license plate details with the other driver. Note the time, date, location and particulars of the collision.
