"Ensuring our clients are put back on the road as quickly as possible is a key part of what we do, and we have expanded our fleet to meet this demand.

"We offer a full range of vehicles including standard models, prestige, vans, 4x4s, taxi and dual controls. It's essential that our clients can get on with their daily lives after a collision, so they need a vehicle like their own."

As a result of its growth, Crash ( has increased staff numbers from 64 to 78 over the last 12 months across its three offices in Belfast (Stockman's Lane and Harbour Estate) and Newry.
