At Towergate we believe in being proactive when it comes to your claims management, getting 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 please call your insurer directly using the telephone number within your policy documents, where you will also find the claims team opening hours. In most cases your insurer will be available at any time, day or night. Alternatively you can contact the business support team at Towergate on 0344 892 1385 and we will put you in touch.
Your insurer will correspond with you directly with the progress of your claim and they will keep us updated at all times.
