If you operate a Hackney Carriage Public Hire Taxi you will obviously be looking for an insurer that can provide specialist assistance in the event of an accident.
Apart from your repairs, probably the most important aspect to any taxi operator is the same day delivery of a suitable replacement plated/equipped Taxi so the effect of the accident on your business is kept to the minimum.
Assuming you have found an insurance provider who can provide this level of service for your fault accident claims, you now need to find an independent non-fault claims provider that can also deliver this level of service – that would Car Call UK.
Avoid non-fault claims on your Hackney Carriage Taxi insurance and save money
Any claim on your Taxi insurance is likely to cause the cost of your annual insurance to increase.
Of course fault claims can only go through your insurer, but our independent non-fault claims service allows you to get all your accident issues resolved without a claim on your policy.
There is no charge at all for any of our services because we and our partners recover the costs at the end of your claim - directly from the at-fault driver’s insurer.
If you have any excess on your policy, your insurer would probably insist on you paying this ‘up-front’ before your Taxi is repaired and then recover the money back at a later date.
But if you use our service and do not claim on your insurance – this of course no longer applies.
