Will I need to report the claim to my insurer if you are dealing with my claim?
No. Once you Call Chrysler First we will notify your insurer of the accident and which Chrysler approved repair centre your Chrysler is to be repaired at.
If you don't Call Chrysler First, your insurer will dictate where your vehicle will be repaired and it will be too late for you to exercise your legal right to have your Chrysler repaired at a Chrysler approved repair centre.
What do Chrysler customers pay for this service?
This is a FREE service to all Chrysler drivers – there's no catch. We simply manage the claim on your behalf. When an accident is not your fault we recover all costs from the other party's insurer. Similarly, there is no extra cost if the accident was your fault. Assuming that you are comprehensively insured, your only cost is any uninsured cost, such as policy excess.
What information will you require from me in order to manage the claim?
When you call us you will not need to fill in a claim form as we will do this for you over the telephone. In the event that you are missing some details, we will investigate and make enquiries.
If I Call Chrysler First will it increase my next insurance premium?
Definitely not if you were not at fault for the accident; the other party's insurer pays for your claim. If the accident is your fault, any increase in your next premium should be no more than if the insurer's repair centre did the repair, as we approve all repair costs with your insurer prior to proceeding.
How will Chrysler and my insurer agree on the cost of the repair?
We approve all repair costs with your insurer. The assigned Chrysler approved repair centre submits an estimate of the repair cost for your insurer's approval before proceeding with the repair. Costs for completing accident repairs are standardised.
How does Chrysler benefit from providing this service?
It sounds good but I can't help being cynical.By providing a branded experience to Chrysler drivers at a time of stress and inconvenience, this service aims to alleviate hassle, provide peace of mind and deliver the highest level of customer satisfaction, strengthening our relationship with all our customers. Chrysler also benefits as we fit more approved Chrysler parts and direct more customers' vehicles to Chrysler approved accident repair centres.
I'm a Chrysler used vehicle owner – am I also entitled to use this service?
This service is available to all Chrysler drivers in the UK, regardless of the age of your vehicle, whether your vehicle is new or used, or has had a number of previous owners. It is also available to anyone who drives your Chrysler, providing they are insured. This service can be passed on to new owners if and when you sell your Chrysler.
Can you help for all accidents, even a small dent?
For any accident, no matter how big or small, you should always Call Chrysler First. We will arrange your Chrysler repairs with no hassle or inconvenience.
Isn't it just another middleman that will reduce my control over the claim process?
No. This Chrysler programme gives you much greater control over your insurance claim, by allowing you to exercise your legal right to control where your vehicle is repaired and ensuring that you receive all the benefits outlined in this leaflet.
