2. Make sure your car is safe to drive
If your car is not safe to drive please make use of our emergency assist services to tow your car. If you are unsure whether your car needs to be towed or not, check for leaking fluids under the car, smoke coming from the engine, any warning lights on the dashboard or anything obstructing or touching the wheels. If you are still unsure, it is best that you have your car towed to ensure your safety and avoid additional damages.
3. Reporting your claim
You can report your accident online 24/7/365 or contacting us during office hours.
Reporting your claim online is easy and allows you to book your own damage assessment at one of our assessment centres. We will automatically be alerted of your claim and will get in touch with you during office hours to obtain all the relevant information required to finalise your claim.
4. Assessing your damages

You can book your assessment whilst reporting your claim online or we will do it for you when you call us.

If you have car hire on your policy, we will arrange for it to be made available once your car goes in for repairs.
