How To Get A Free Hire Car After An Accident
If you’ve been in an accident serious enough to put your car out of commission for some time, and if the accident was not your fault, then here at Get Back on the Road we can set you up with a like-for-like replacement car and even deliver it to your door.
We can also introduce you to a reputable mechanic if you don’t have your own in mind as we have relationships with a network of legitimate repair shops.
And as much as we are able, we always aim to do all of the above such that you pay nothing by claiming everything from the at-fault party’s insurer.
Even if your car accident was not your fault, if you contact your insurance company following the accident then you will more than likely experience an increase in your monthly premium.
By filing through us you can avoid involving your insurer altogether, as we will help you to file a claim with the other party’s insurer directly, leaving your insurer out of the picture entirely.
No need to claim on your own insurance policy
No one is forced to make a claim with their own insurance in the event of an accident, and you are perfectly entitled not to do so. And in the event that the accident was not your fault, it is always preferable to simply leave your insurer out of the picture entirely in order to maintain your no-claim bonus (which reduces your monthly premium if you have never made a claim).
If your particular circumstances are unique or if you are still not sure if you need to contact your insurance provider or not, then by all means feel free to contact us by phone and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
