Allianz’s award-winning commercial motor team launch motor fleet product refreshes

Press release   •   May 08, 2018 11:25 BST

Allianz Insurance, one of the UK’s leading commercial motor insurers, has refreshed its motor fleet products to provide businesses with new and enhanced covers and access to improved risk management services to help reduce costs.

The revamped products are available for both small (4-14 vehicles) and larger (15+ vehicles) fleets and have been refreshed following extensive market research and customer feedback. Traded through Allianz’s national branch network, they’re supported by an award-winning underwriting team and dedicated 24/7 motor claims team.

Recognising the increasing use of risk management technology in fleets, businesses will now have cover for in-vehicle safety technology such as dashcams. Other new features in the refreshed products include cover for misfuelling and child seats, as well as pay-on-use breakdown. Allianz has also enhanced its limits for third party property damage, replacement locks and personal accident.

In addition, reporting and sharing information has been made even easier for customers who can now access a cloud platform and upload video footage or imagery in support of a claim.

For vehicle repairs Allianz’s nationwide approved repairer network provides a lifetime guarantee and customers can track the progress of their repair online. For added convenience on minor repairs, there’s the option of using a mobile repair solution, minimising the time a vehicle is off the road.

Providing more than just motor insurance cover, Allianz customers are also given access to a wide range of services including risk management guidance, business and legal helplines and discounted services from preferred suppliers.

A new partnership with DriveTech, part of the AA, gives customers access to discounts on various risk management services including online and on-road driver assessments and training. In addition, DriveTech can help fleets understand how to better utilise advances in technology, including the analysis of telematics data. Their customer portal allows fleet managers to have complete oversight of their operation, helping fleets run more effectively and working to drive costs down.

To find out more fleet operators should contact their insurance broker.

Jonathan Dye, head of motor insurance, commented: “We strive to help customers manage their fleets more efficiently, economically and, with risk management support, more safely too. Our products are designed to give businesses control over their fleet by providing comprehensive and flexible cover with access to guidance, support and an excellent claims service.”
