At Towergate we believe in being proactive when it comes to your claims management. We get your insurer involved as soon as possible to reduce the time it takes until settlement, ensuring you are back on the road as quickly as possible and keeping claims costs down. In fact, the first two days following an incident are critical in the handling of your claim.
It is important to report all incidents to your insurers, including cases where there is little or no damage to your vehicle. This will help your insurance company to defend you against claims made by a third party. While all incidents should be reported directly to your insurer, our in house team are always on hand should you need additional support or if you have concerns about the claims process.
To report an incident at any time, day or night, please call your insurer directly using the telephone number shown on your claims card. Your claims card should be kept in your vehicle at all times so you are able to report incidents as quickly as possible.
Your insurer will correspond with you directly with the progress of your claim and they will keep us updated at all times.
