Scratch And Dent Insurance
A car insurance policy only provides cover against motor vehicle accidents, hi-jacking and theft. In most cases you have to pay an excess for each and every incident.
It is therefore not always possible to claim for minor dents and scratches not caused by a car accident.
Each dent caused by a shopping trolley would be seen as a separate incident by the insurance company and you would have to pay an excess for each and every dent.
This is where Scratch-And-Dent Insurance comes in very handy. It helps you keep your most valuable asset in top condition and protects you from unforeseen costs related to minor dents and scratches.
