Mikutta welcomes back to South Australia, Andrew Ikin.
Andrew will be helping with developing the newly completed dedicated heavy vehicle crash repair workshop focusing on insurance claims, estimating crash repairs and repair shop management.
Andrews' career began with his family's Loss Assessing company covering Tasmania in all areas of the motor industry including heavy trucks, machinery and anything with wheels and tyres. He was trained to assess most aspects of domestic and light commercial vehicles by senior members of the firm.
A brief hiatus found Andrew studying accounting, and then taking up a position in Adelaide with a new crash repair firm and was the beginning of what is now twenty years specialising in heavy truck and trailer crash repairs.
After twelve years in Adelaide he was offered a position in north Queensland with a large repair network covering the eastern states. Andrew said, 'It's a great experience to work with different firms and to gain an insight into alternative methods in workshop estimating and management'.
Eight years on and Andrew has returned to South Australia and ready to help Mikutta's clientele both existing and new. With forty years of accumulated knowledge in insurance claims, estimating crash repairs and repair shop management, there is a wealth of experience to assist all clients. If you're not insured or self-insured there is plenty of advice available to help with repairs and recoveries.
Andrew has successfully worked with most of the heavy vehicle insurers in Australia including NTI, QBE, Zurich, Allianz and Global amongst others and has developed some very successful relationships with both claims staff and loss assessors including private firms such as AAMC and Innovation Group.
If you need assistance, help or advice please get in touch with Andrew!
