Capricorn promotes world-class Thatcham repair methods

Thatcham Escribe has signed an agreement with the Capricorn Society, whereby Capricorn members can now purchase Escribe licences through their Capricorn accounts in Australia and New Zealand. Escribe, provides online access to Thatcham Research’s world-class repair information, including fully researched times and methods data, ensuring safe and appropriate repair procedures are readily available to repairers, assessors and trainers alike.

Users can quickly and conveniently access escribe via their desktop, laptop, or mobile devices, enabling fast decision-making at the damaged vehicle. Where possible, Thatcham methods offer less-intrusive repair options and highlight ways to avoid unnecessary damage and sacrificial parts that require pre-ordering.

Rob Mildenhall, Capricorn National Panel Manager, said: “The appointment of Thatcham escribe as a preferred supplier to Capricorn is an important step in ensuring that our Collision repair members have access to accurate, appropriate and safe methods of repair for vehicles in their workshops. By utilising these methods, members can restore damaged vehicles to their original safety rating, a vitally important component of their ability to provide quality repairs to their customers and stakeholders.”

Thatcham methods include 19 of the 20 most repaired vehicles in Australia, and are fully compliant with the Motor Vehicle Insurance and Repair Code of Conduct. As far as credentials go, Thatcham is the OEM provider of repair methods to Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and McLaren.

As with all suppliers to Capricorn, Capricorn members who use Thatcham Escribe, benefit from a simplified payment method and the ability to earn reward points from their purchases.
