If you operate an Uber Taxi, you need to ensure your vehicle is available at all times – but what if you are involved in an accident?
If you were responsible for the accident, then hopefully your insurer will provide you with a suitable replacement. However if you were not ‘at-fault’ for the accident, there are many advantages to not making a claim on your own insurance and resolving your accident issues independently of your insurer.
How our claims assistance is better
If you are involved in a non-fault accident, we can not only deliver a replacement plated private hire Taxi, but we also arrange the repairs to your own vehicle too.
If you make a non-fault claim on your Taxi insurance policy: -
You will almost certainly have to pay your excess up-front
The cost of your insurance is likely to increase
You may not be offered a suitable plated Taxi as a replacement
How we help
We will notify your own insurer for ‘information purposes only’ so that they are aware of the accident, but do not provide any services for you.
The cost of the damage to your Taxi will be assessed by an independent automotive engineer and it will be booked into one of our approved accident repair centres.
The solicitors we work with will look into the recovery of any lost earnings or provide assistance with any claims personal injury if you wish to do so.
When your repair is complete, we will recover the costs involved directly from the insurer of the at-fault driver on your behalf.
