If you drive a ‘black cab’ or Hackney Carriage taxi and you have ever tried to get a replacement black cab, it probably wasn’t as easy as it should be.
We provide specialist accident assistance for all types of vehicles including plated Private Hire and public Hire Taxi cabs.
If you have been involved in a non-fault accident we can independently manage your entire accident claim, including a replacement plated black cab which can typically be supplied on the same day as you start your claim with us.
Our service includes arranging repairs to your own vehicle, providing a suitable replacement and also legal assistance with issues such as recovering lost earnings and personal injury claims.
Because we and our partners recover the accident related costs from the at-fault drivers insurer, this gives you an alternative to a claim on your own Taxi insurance policy.
Why we believe our service is better than a claim on your Taxi insurance
A claim made on your taxi insurance policy will almost certainly mean your Taxi will cost more to insure next time round, so keeping these claims off your claims record just makes sound financial sense.
It is also likely that you will to pay your insurance excess up-front before your vehicle is repaired and then recover it back at a later date. By using our service - this does not happen.
We even take care of reporting the claim to your own insurance provider.
The accident is reported for ‘information purposes only’ so you comply with their terms and conditions, but ensures they do not provide assistance so your future premiums should not be affected.
How we manage your accident claim
We believe our accident assistance is as good as you will find anywhere. You will get a personal claims advisor to look after all aspects of your claim, not a random inexperienced advisor in a large call centre.
We also don’t put our customers on hold or in a queue, you will typically get straight through to us without delay.
We have been assisting Fleet and owner driver Taxi operators now for over a decade, so you can be assured of the best possible service.
