Fleet Services

Motor Fleet Managers have to deal with a welter of problems daily.

Insurance is only one of those issues - but an important one.

Although you, as an insurance broker will work hard to place the main line insurance cover with the best carrier there are still many other issues connected with the motor insurance programme that need to be addressed and a holistic solution, allowing your fleet client to choose what elements of our service they require which will help you devise a service programme to their best advantage.

At Lawshield we have the experience, know how, and expertise to address the vast majority of the practical day to day issues to ensure the motor fleets run in a more efficient and economic way.

Repair Management

The insurer can assist you with repair of standard cars, but when it comes to repair of specialist vehicles, prestige, and HGVs Lawshield’s specialist repair networks, available nationally, will ensure the repair is carried out swiftly, with a three-year manufacturers guarantee on repairs. Also, if repairs fall within your excess we will arrange to have the vehicles repaired and to bill you monthly.

Fleet Managers will often arrange repairs when their drivers are involved in non-fault accidents and then try to recover the outlay. This does not always work well; if the third party insurer has not inspected the vehicle and an independent engineer has not approved the repairs it will often be difficult to recover the outlay.

We will contact the responsible party and arrange an urgent inspection so that repairs can proceed at the repairer of choice, or in our network. We understand the system and we will ensure the customer does not become financially out of pocket.

At the same time our uninsured loss recovery will be working on recovery of the excess and other uninsured losses.

Replacement Vehicle Provision

We are able to assist in providing replacement vehicles whenever the circumstances of the accident or incident in which your fleet driver has been involved gives rise to a need. This may include incidents such as the vehicle being stolen, vandalised or damaged by fire or involved in a fault or non–fault accident. In all of these circumstances Lawshield have a product or service available to source a replacement vehicle.

We can arrange a credit hire and recover the costs from the responsible third party, they can insure against the risk of being without your vehicle and we will provide one in the event of a claim. Alternatively, a standard vehicle can be arranged via our repair network or a cash hire of a superior standard, prestige, specialist, or commercial vehicle at a significant discount via our facilities in the event of a fault incident where recovery is not possible.
