When a vehicle is written off, there are a number of different options available as to how you can cover the cost of repair. One of the most cost-effective and quickest ways to add cover for your vehicle is through third party insurance. Third party cover offers a variety of different benefits to those that take out policies with it including accidental damage and injury cover. It is worth knowing what your policy covers before taking out any kind of cover.
Accidental damage is the simplest form of third party insurance. This type of cover offers protection from damage that was done either during a time when your vehicle was being used or was parked. If you have a windscreen or windshield that was cracked by hail and repaired then you would be eligible to claim injury compensation for windscreen or window damages. If you have a lock that was broken and you were the one who lost it or if it was stolen from your vehicle then you may also be eligible to claim theft and accident insurance.
If your vehicle was in an accident that was your fault you may also want to consider collision and comprehensive insurance. These types of cover are provided by the same companies that provide third party cover. They will pay for repairs to your vehicle and also pay for damages to other people’s property. You will need to check which type of protection suits you best and what your minimum level of cover is. Some people choose to take out fully comprehensive as this offers the most cover at the lowest premium.
Comprehensive covers the most possibilities of damage to your vehicle. It is the dearest type of insurance but also offers the greatest cover. The level of protection offered is dependent on the amount of money you wish to pay in premiums. The protection offered depends on the type of cover that you choose. Some policies offer cover for damage caused by vandalism, theft, malicious mischief and third party injury, whilst others cover for damage or theft from your car and some provide no cover at all.
Third party is a general term that describes third parties that may become injured or hurt in an accident. This could include you if you were to hit a pedestrian or a dog or even a horse. If you are at fault for the accident then you should have Third Party Cover. However, if you are at least partly to blame then your vehicle may be covered by your own Third Party Plus policy. You should check with your insurer as this level of cover differs from provider to provider.
You may also need to think about uninsured motorist cover. This type of policy is designed to protect you in the event that you cause an accident and are unable to pay for the damages out of your own pocket. In the UK, this level of insurance is not compulsory, so it is worth checking with each individual provider to see whether they offer this cover. It is worth remembering that even if you do choose to take out this cover, you will often have to pay a high excess which means that the premiums will be higher, however you will not have to put down a large sum if you need to make a claim. However, the cost of this type of insurance can be much higher than third party cover so you should check how much it would cost from your own pocket if you made a claim.
The level of third party fire and theft is another type of insurance that is required by law in certain countries. It covers you if you have to make a claim on your policy in the event that your vehicle is damaged or stolen. This type of cover can vary considerably between providers so it is a good idea to shop around before committing to a policy. Again, you should check the level of cover provided by your provider as this will affect the cost of the premiums.
How can I get insurance for my vehicle? The answers to all of these questions are simple. If you are looking to insure your vehicle, you should get a professional opinion from an insurance broker. A specialist will be able to give you the cheapest premium but they will also know the right type of cover to provide and the amount of excess which is needed.
