Car insurance - Make a claim?

If you are looking to make a non-fault accident claim, we and our partners can provide the all assistance you need without a costly claim on your car insurance policy. Call 02392 484 244 for independent expert advice.

Non-fault claims on your car insurance – can cost you money

We and our partners help thousands of people every year make non-fault road accident claims independently of their insurers.

If you are responsible for an accident, your insurer would normally have to deal with your accident claim on your behalf. They will arrange repairs to your vehicle (if you have comprehensive cover) and ensure the costs incurred by the third party are reimbursed

If the accident was caused by someone else's careless driving, you have the option of a claim on your insurance policy or you can make an accident claim independently of your insurer.

Making your non-fault accident claim independently with Car Call and our partners can have advantages over a claim on your own insurance policy.

If you make a non-fault claim on your car insurance policy, you will almost certainly be required to pay the excess on your policy. Also, your next insurance premium is likely to increase as a result of your claim.

We however, provide all the services you need to get you back on the road as quickly and efficiently as possible and recover the costs directly from the at-fault driver's insurer on your behalf – just like your insurer.

The difference is – you have no excess to pay and your no-claims bonus stays protected.

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 comparable 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 comparable 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.
