It's your choice, It's your vehicle
More often than not, insurance companies direct policyholders to use their 'approved' bodyshops to repair your vehicle. In fact, you are not obliged to.
Insurers influence policyholders to use their repairers as it is more cost effective for them. However, they may dictate the level of service and repair you will receive and whether non genuine parts are used in the repair.
If your policy holds a contractual clause that you MUST go where you are told it is essential, for this to apply, that it was made very clear to you at the outset of the insurance contract.
