Fleet Taxi Accident Management

As a Taxi fleet operator, you need to keep your costs to the minimum but without sacrificing the availability and quality of your service.

Car Call and its partners provides bespoke accident management solutions that ensure that any disruption to your business is kept to the minimum following a non-fault road traffic collision.

How we help your Fleet Taxi business

We appreciate that having a vehicle off the road for any length of time can seriously affect a taxi operator.

We provide suitably equipped replacement vehicles which can be delivered typically on the same day of reporting your accident to us.

Your damaged taxi is inspected by an independent Automotive Engineer, who will assess the damage, the repairs needed and the potential cost of repairs. The repairs can then be either carried out at one of our approved accident repair centres or at a repairer of your own choice.

Because we and our partners recover the costs associated with the collision directly from the at-fault driver’s insurer on your behalf, there is an alternative to an insurance claim on your fleet policy. This means you will have no excess to pay and your insurance premium should not increase as a result of the collision.

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.
