If you run your own Private Hire Taxi you probably can’t afford to have your vehicle out-of-action for any length of time.
It can be even more frustrating to lose business thanks to the actions of a careless driver and then have to make a claim on your insurance which will almost certainly lead to an increase in your premium.
Car Call UK and our partners helps Taxi operators of all sizes by quickly providing replacement plated taxi’s and also resolving their accident repairs – independently of your insurer.
If I call your claims line, what happens next?
One of our experienced advisors will take the details of your accident and give you a view on liability. We will then arrange for a like-for-like replacement plated/equipped taxi to be delivered to you so you can continue with your normal business activities.
We then notify your own insurer for ‘information purposes only’ so that they are aware, but do not deal with your claim.
The damage to your own taxi is assessed by an independent Automotive Engineer and then it is booked into one of our approved accident repair centres or at a repairer of your own choice.
If you need legal help, you can also speak to the solicitors we work with to discuss the recovery of any lost earnings or make a claim for a personal injury if you wish to do so.
On completion of the repairs and when you have returned your replacement vehicle, we will recover the costs involved directly from the insurer of the at-fault driver.
