Accidents happen. And when they do, you want to minimize costs, reduce risk and get your vehicles up and running again quickly. Our full-service accident program covers everything from the first reporting of an accident to getting your vehicle back on the road, and includes managing and negotiating repairs and getting maximum payout from third parties.
Save money, get drivers back on the road and experience full visibility into the repair process
We’ll help get your vehicles back on the road faster following an accident. Our team will take care of all the details from start to finish – managing documentation, repair shop assignments and approvals, and provide subrogation services if needed. The entire process is tracked online so you have insight into each step along the way.
24/7 driver assistance
When your driver calls us after an accident, our dedicated support team moves into action, handling all accident-related needs such as emergency assistance, vehicle towing, data capture, repair assistance and interim rental. It’s fast, reliable service when your drivers need it most.
Collision evaluation and authorization
Our customer-aligned ASE- and ICAR-trained certified collision adjusters review, negotiate and make recommendations on vehicle repairs to ensure your vehicles are getting the right repairs at the best price.
We manage repairs from start to finish, meaning we:
- Coordinate receipt of documentation and photos
- Follow up on critical repair-cycle events to minimize vehicle downtime
- Manage the rental process
- Negotiate rental recovery due to repair delays
Your repairs are only as good as the repair provider. That’s why we inspect our suppliers’ repair facilities, audit repairs in process and review their business operations to ensure they’re giving you the best service and price.
Our subrogation team pursues maximum recovery according to state and provincial laws – including loss of use, loss of productivity and diminished value of the vehicle. In fact, we lead the industry in recovering funds on our customer’s behalf.
