On Thursday 3rd September, Nationwide sold their business to Redde Northgate and as a result are no longer part of our strategic motor repair network.
Please be reassured that we continue to ensure our customers receive a normal claim and repair journey at this time. All of our customers who were allocated to Nationwide for repair, have been contacted by our claim teams to provide support, explain the positon and to answer any questions.
Any repair work in progress, where the vehicle is already on site with Nationwide (or that was due to be brought to site on Friday 3rd or Saturday 4th), will be completed as planned and we will ensure that the customer has access to a vehicle to keep them mobile at this time. All new repairs that were due to go to Nationwide after the 4th September will be re-deployed within our supply network.
Nationwide have been removed from our claims system so they do not appear as an option for our handlers to be instructed for new repairs. All new repair instructions will be allocated to either AGL or Fix Autos who have the capacity for the increased volume.
