Tesla has opened its first Bodyshop in the UK, which supports a full range of structural repair services for all Tesla vehicles. This indicates the widespread deployment of the service, which was recently promised by Elon Musk.
Body repairs are not only about fixing a damaged aesthetic, they are also important to ensure the functionality, safety, and longevity of Tesla vehicles. On January 28, the company notified customers that Tesla service centers are now offering post-collision repairs. In a message to customers, the company indicated that it now carries out a very wide range of repairs, from small scuffs to suspension and axle damage. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been talking about the importance of this for several years, and now the company is making it a reality around the world.

Third-party repair shops often take a very long time with collision repairs—sometimes even several months—creating obvious difficulties for clients. While car owners of various brands are forced to agree to this, Tesla has made sure that its customers receive an improved service. The widespread opening of service centers that will carry out such repairs will significantly improve the experience of owning a Tesla car.
The company already has an edge over repair shops when it comes to timely service. While outside repair shops serve thousands of brands and models, Tesla service centers specialize exclusively in Tesla vehicles. As the capabilities of the company's service centers expand, the experience of owning a Tesla is bound to even further improve. In addition, from a bottom line perspective, collision repairs are expected to represent a larger revenue segment for Tesla over time.
