Accident Loan Car - Why you shouldn’t have to settle for less

May 21, 2019

Not only can being involved in a not at-fault accident be traumatic, but it can leave you inconvenienced in your everyday life. When your car is off the road and in the smash repair shop for repairs, how are you supposed to not let it turn your life upside down? The simple answer is, you can’t.


Without a car, how are you supposed to get to and from work, get the kids to school and their sports activities or do just about anything else that isn’t at your home? You need to adjust in order to meet your schedule. If you have been in this situation, you know how much of a burden it can be to try and make your way around, relying on public transport, friends and family. Simply put, this is a massive inconvenience.


For many who don’t know about accident loan cars, and life without a car is just not possible, you may be stuck having to hire a rental car and stuck paying the rental costs. Often not at-fault drivers either have to pay for the rental car themselves (which can be a pretty hefty expense) or if the at-fault insurer is willing to pay, they are often stuck with a car that is much smaller or isn’t suitable to meet their needs. Fortunately, in many cases, this situation can be avoided.


What most people don’t know is that if you’re not at-fault in an accident and more than one car is involved you may have the right to a loan car similar to your own with the costs covered by the at-fault party's insurer. For example, if a tradesman has a ute and it is damaged and needed for work, some rental companies may not be able to provide a similar vehicle, or the at-fault insurer may choose to only pay for a small car like a hatchback. This means the tradesman is not able to continue working whilst their ute is being repaired which inconveniences the not at-fault party by not being able to work while their car is off the road. Same goes for an SUV that is required to transport multiple people daily. This cannot be done in a small standard rental vehicle.


With Right2Drive you don’t have to worry about settling for less. We strive to place our customers in a vehicle similar to their own so they can continue on with life. So if you have found yourself in a car accident and you are not at-fault, remember to apply for an accident loan car with Right2Drive.
