HGV and truck hire following a non-fault accident


If you have had a non-fault accident in your HGV or truck you may be surprised to know that we can arrange an HGV hire for you.

Car Call and our partners can organise a replacement truck or HGV hire and recover the hire costs directly from the at fault party's insurance company on your behalf.

Car Call and our partners help thousands of road users every year by arranging quality accident repairs and hire vehicles including HGVs and trucks for our non-fault customers. If you call us we will discuss your requirements and we will do our very best to source the size and type of HGV or truck you need.

If you own your own vehicle your insurance cover may not include a suitable replacement vehicle to allow you to continue working whilst your vehicle is being repaired.

We realise that HGV repairs often require a specialist accident repair centre and we can find an approved specialist repairer that is convenient for you.

Because we deal with the at-fault party's insurer directly there is an alternative to a claim on your own insurance policy and so your No Claims Discount should remain intact.

Our UK based claims team will make all the arrangements for you and keep you updated at every stage of the process. Remember we and our partners recover the costs of these services for you.

No need to claim on your insurance

Anyone who has been involved in a road accident has the right to choose who repairs their vehicle. If you were responsible for the accident you were involved in, the company that insures your vehicle would normally deal with your accident claim.

However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.

No excess to pay

Unfortunately even if an accident was not your fault, your insurer will almost certainly require you to pay your excess before any repair is started on your car.

This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.

By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.

Receive a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle

Not all insurance policies will include a replacement hire-car for you to use if yours is damaged and unroadworthy. In fact it is typically an 'optional extra' on your policy.

Other policies may offer a 'courtesy car' but this is often just a 'basic' saloon or hatchback which may not be suitable for your needs.

Car Call and its partners will provide a like-for-like replacement vehicle as part of our service. This means we will endeavour to supply a hire-vehicle that similar to your own in terms of its type, make and engine size.

So whether you drive a small hatchback or a prestige sports car, we will look to provide a similar hire-vehicle that suits your needs.

Manufacturer approved vehicle repairs

If you have been involved in a car accident, the last thing you want to have to worry about is the quality of the repairs to your car. We have a UK wide network of partner approved Accident Repair Centres available to all of our customers.

Many of our accident repair centres are have manufacturer approvals for specific brands, so if you require a manufacturer approved repair centre, simply tell your personal claim handler and they will ensure your vehicle goes to an approved repairer.

Want you vehicle repaired by a specific garage? No problem, we can alternatively use a repairer that you specify.
