How our service benefits you

We and our partners enable road users to resolve their accident issues by organising their vehicle repairs, providing them with a like-for-like replacement vehicle and arranging legal assistance with any accident related issues.

Our assistance is not limited by the ‘options’ you have chosen on your insurance policy.

We are completely independent, so all our customers get the same comprehensive range of services.

Who pays for all this? The insurer of the person responsible is required to pay for all the assistance that is provided for you.

How we assist you:

  • We will arrange for your car to be recovered from the scene of the accident and taken to one of our approved accident repair centres

  • We will take the details of the accident, establish who was at-fault and then start organising your assistance

  • A like-for-like replacement vehicle is delivered to your home or place of work typically within 3 hours of accepting your claim

  • Damage to your vehicle is assessed by an independent automotive engineer

  • Your car repairs can be carried out at an approved accident repair centre or at a repair centre of your own choice

  • Legal assistance is provided by our partner solicitors for issues such as lost earnings, expenses or a claim for a personal injury

  • Our claims advisors are available 24/7 to answer your queries

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.

Manufacturer approved vehicle repairs

If you have been involved in a car accident, the last thing you want to have to worry about is the quality of the repairs to your car. We have a UK wide network of partner approved Accident Repair Centres available to all of our customers.

Many of our accident repair centres are have manufacturer approvals for specific brands, so if you require a manufacturer approved repair centre, simply tell your personal claim handler and they will ensure your vehicle goes to an approved repairer.

Want you vehicle repaired by a specific garage? No problem, we can alternatively use a repairer that you specify.
