If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in a road accident, you may think that a claim on your car insurance policy is the only way to get your vehicle repaired. However if you were not responsible for the accident, you also have the option of making a claim independently of your insurer.

We have helped thousands of people resolve their accident claims in this way, by providing everything they need and recovering the costs directly from the insurer of the at-fault driver.

Why make your claim in this way?

If you have an excess on your insurance policy, this may need to be paid before the repairs to your vehicle can be started. In addition to this, even though you were not at-fault for the accident, your no-claims discount could be affected by a claim on your policy.

Because we act completely independently of insurers, it means that we and our partners can provide the help that you need without these conditions.

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.
