What Is An Accident Replacement Vehicle?
Chances are you’ve been there yourself or you know someone who has been unfortunate enough to have a car accident that wasn’t their fault. It can quite often be a nightmare, with your car off the road in the repair shop for days, weeks or even months. Life goes on though, and it can feel like your lifestyle is compromised without access to a motor vehicle.
It’s a little-known fact that if you are not to blame for an accident you are legally entitled to a replacement vehicle, paid for by the at fault insurance company. Many insurance companies encourage people to rent a vehicle themselves, then claim the costs back.
So, what exactly is an accident replacement vehicle? Effectively they are rental cars provided to you free of charge while your original car is off being repaired, with the at fault insurance company covering the cost.
Typically, the free rental vehicle is delivered to the customer at the smash repair shop where they are dropping their car off to get repaired. Or the customer can hire one directly from a hire company like Go With The Gecko, and get reimbursed by the Insurance company at a later date.
The customer then has the rental car until their vehicle has been repaired, at which point they return the rental car to their hire location and continue using their original vehicle as per normal. It should be a seamless process, allowing you to continue moving on with your busy schedule with access to a motor vehicle as you normally would.
