How to Take Photos of Damage

The 4 steps to taking expert shots

STEP 1

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#

STEP 2

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.

STEP 3

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.

STEP 4

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

 

REMEMBER

  • 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.
