Vehicle crash repairers
SAFA has agreements with a network of approved vehicle crash repairers.
When a vehicle crash occurs, Agencies will be required to adhere to current SAFA policies regarding reporting, vehicle repair and crash review.
It remains the driver’s responsibility to either take the vehicle to a SAFA nominated crash repairer (only if it is safe to do so) or arrange for it to be transported via the attending tow truck operator, or via a towing contractor as per the Crash and Theft procedure. During business hours, this can be arranged through SAFA's Crash Management Unit.
