The 4 steps to taking expert shots
TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR REGO
To first help us identify you exact vehicle details take a photo of your Registration plate.
*If your vehicle is registered in a state other than Queensland we may need your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to be able to find your vehicle details.
Watch this video guide of how to find your VIN#
TAKE A CLOSE UP PHOTO OF THE DAMAGE
Take a clear close up photo of the damaged area. For larger damage make sure the damage fits completely into the frame. Multiple angles help us feedback accurate assessments.
TAKE A PHOTO OF ADJACENT PANELS
Take 2-3 steps back so that the surrounding panels of the car can be visible in the frame.
TAKE MULTIPLE ANGLES
From the position you are at from step 2 take a few steps to both your left and right to get different angles of the damage.
*for multiple damaged areas - repeat the process.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES
- The more photos you provide the more accurate the estimates can be.
- For heavy collision damage visual inspections need to be made to make accurate estimates.
- If possible take photos in well-lit environments. However avoid using your camera flash or strong direct sunlight which could cause glare.
