Accredited Estimating You Can Trust

direct repair Accredited Estimate & Repair

The MPI Direct Repair program helps our customers get back on the road as quickly as possible. Customers can expedite their repairs by calling MPI to obtain an eligible claim number and then visiting us directly for an estimate.


Accredited estimating you can trust

Winter’s can estimate your vehicle. We are certified Direct Repair Plus™ by Manitoba Public Insurance. As MPI defines it, “Direct Repair enables customers with eligible claims to proceed directly to a participating repair shop for a vehicle damage estimate after reporting the claim to MPI, instead of attending an MPI Service or Claim Centre.

Direct Repair streamlines the repair process and can save time by eliminating the need to visit MPI for the first vehicle damage estimate.”

With the Direct Repair Plus certification, Winter’s is authorized to perform first estimates on a broader range of eligible claims, in addition to being able to repair damage on qualified vehicles.

Only certain claims are eligible for Direct Repair or Direct Repair Plus and not all repair shops can perform vehicle damage estimates. Your estimate options will be discussed with you when you report your claim.

The role of the windshield is a lot more complex than simply allowing a view of the road ahead. It is considered a structural part of the vehicle as it contributes to the strength of the roof and A-pillars. The windshield helps to manage collision energy and has become an integral part of several advanced safety systems.”
