If you are the operator of an Uber Taxi - or in fact any private hire Taxi, a road traffic accident can put your vehicle out of action and seriously affect your income.
Car Call UK and our partners can provide independent accident assistance to any driver who has been involved in an accident that was not their fault.
Our service enables you to get a plated replacement Taxi cab delivered to you, typically on the same day whilst we arrange accident repairs for your own vehicle, without you having to make a claim on your own vehicle insurance policy.
How independent accident assistance benefits you
We provide assistance to thousands of drivers every year. They choose our service because it keeps claims off their policy so that:
They do not lose their no-claims bonus
There is no excess to pay
The cost of your insurance should not increase because of your accident
In addition to this, as a Taxi driver, you will need a like-for-like replacement for your Taxi as of a ‘standard’ hire vehicle may not be suitable as an Uber Taxi vehicle.
As part of our service, we provide our Uber Taxi customers with like-for-like plated private hire Taxis to use while we arrange the repair of your own vehicle.
We and our partners recover your accident assistance costs
We arrange your repairs, replacement Taxi and legal assistance for you.
We also notify your insurer ‘for information purposes only’ so that you comply with the terms of your Taxi insurance policy and so that a claim is not made on your insurance.
When you are happy with your repair, we and our partners recover the costs from the at-fault driver’s insurer on your behalf.
We can arrange legal assistance to pursue a claim for injury compensation if appropriate and can also recover lost earnings and costs of personal property that may have been damaged/destroyed by the accident.
