ACCIDENT DAMAGE REPAIR

We are approved repairers for several insurance companies so when Maydencroft’s Unimog was involved in an accident they knew who to turn to in order to get the damage repaired professionally.

THE RESULT

The Unimog was delivered back to Maydencroft in better condition than ever.

This Unimog had always been the favourite of the six Mogs owned by Maydencroft.

The repairs were completed within our estimate and both the insurance company and the owners are pleased with the result.

Find Out How We Did It

THE FINISHED UNIMOG

OUCH!

The Unimog had rolled onto its side.

The main damage was to the chipbox, rear body & cab.

Luckily the driver had the presence of mind to turn off the engine so there was no mechanical damage.

As the repairs were carried out for the insurance company we prepared a detailed estimate for approval before starting any work.


REMOVING THE DAMAGED PARTS

Once we had the go ahead, one of the first jobs was to remove the damaged rear body & chipbox and to check the cab for alignment.






CUTTING OUT DAMAGED SECTIONS

Next, the damaged sections of the cab were removed in preparation for the new panels to be fitted.






WELDING IN THE NEW SECTIONS

The new inner & outer B pillar were welded in place and a replacement door fitted.

Everything lined up perfectly.




GETTING TO GRIPS WITH SOME REPAIRS

Whilst the Unimog was here, Maydencroft asked us to carry out some additional repairs to sort out a few niggles.

The engine was leaking oil from the front & rear crank seals so it was removed to complete this job.

The repair to the headboard of the rear body and the new dropside are visible in this photo.



LOOKING SMART

The finished article.

Now resplendent in a fresh coat of paint all round, looking and driving better than ever.

All achieved within budget.

Lars-Erik Bammis Ohlsson

When I bought my U1000 “Rustbucket” , Simon gave me a fair & frank appraisal of its condition. The mog was cleaned and shipped professionally with no issues upon landing here in Australia. Since then, AV has provided me with excellent spares support and the occasional bit of advice. Posting was always prompt and economical via Royal Mail – this has taken a lot of the pain out of restoration. Highly recommended.

Pieter

Atkinson Vos not only supplied my Unimog some years ago but they have been ever present when I needed any advice or assistance. My Unimog recently underwent a full refurbishment in their workshop and I have to say the result has been nothing short of superb. My Moggy is not only in great mechanical shape but it looks great too. Top marks Atkinson Vos.

James Mc Donnell, Ireland

Whenever I drive my MOG on to their yard, I have a feeling of excitement about the opportunities for upgrade and improvement that Atkinson Vos offers. Anything is possible, and everything is done to a very high standard!. Atkinson Vos prepared my Unimog to an excellent standard. Their aftersales service is great too.

Hi Simon, The shims arrived last week. My unimog is now running perfectly! Thank you a lot for the excellent service, I really appreciate it!

Casper Hanekamp

We have been using Atkinson Vos for a number of years now, they have carried out some upgrades and all servicing and repairs, their staff are friendly and always willing to help. The workshop guys always offer advice and easy fix solutions over the phone and on the odd occasion visited our workshop to view and inspect the vehicle. I would not hesitate to recommend the company, Thanks to all the staff.

Based on their performance to date, we are confident Atkinson Vos support will be there in the future where ever our travels may take us.”
