What is Direct Repair?

Save time and hassle after a collision by going to an accredited Direct Repair shop to get an approved Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) Claim estimate. MPI Direct Repair is available to Manitoba drivers to speed up their car accident repair estimate and repairs, with an accredited direct auto body repair shop, in or outside Winnipeg.

What Does “Accredited Repair Shop” Mean?

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, and the hassle of taking your car to two different locations.

Repairing Newer Vehicles

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 MPI direct repair 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.
