Accident Repairs

If you have taken out our Comprehensive or Gold Comprehensive car insurance then you're covered for repairs to your vehicle if you have an accident.

How can I get my car repaired?

When your claim is processed someone will be appointed to assess the damage and make the necessary repairs. We like to make things as quick and easy as possible for our customers, so your insurer will manage the entire process for you.

They'll find a reliable repairer near to you, make all the arrangements and pay them direct for their work, so all you'll have to do is pay them the excess. You'll also give a lifetime guarantee of the quality of the repairs, for as long as you own the vehicle.

One-stop claims assessment centres

If you live in the Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney region you can speed the claim and repair process by taking your car to one of our one-stop claims assessment centres, where you'll get a complete appraisal of the damage on the spot. Please note that appointments are essential at all of the assessment centres. To make an appointment please ensure you have lodged your claim, which you can do by calling 1300 467 872.

What happens if my car has to be written off?

If you have Comprehensive or Gold Comprehensive car insurance and your car is so badly damaged that it can't be repaired, the insurer may decide to write it off. This means that they will pay you either the insured amount or the market value of the car, depending on your policy, which you can use to buy another car.

Depending on which policy you have purchased if you bought your car brand new and it has to be written off within the first 12 or 24 months of your policy, you may qualify for a replacement car of the same make, model and specification. If this is the case we'll even pay the first 12 months rego and CTP. Check your PDS and policy documents for details and conditions.
