Publish date: 23/10/2020
As part of its commitment to ethically reducing the hidden cost of motor claims, incident management expert FMG has partnered with property insurance claims specialist The Building Repair Network to ensure the best outcome for those whose property is damaged in a motor incident.
And their data, collected over the past 12 months, highlights average savings of £2,400 per captured claim.
Property damage claims arising from motor incidents can typically include a large vehicle colliding with a house or shop front for example, and such repairs require structural and insurance expertise. By joining forces with The Building Repair Network, FMG gain access to qualified and experienced construction industry specialists to manage the property repair aspect of at-fault motor claims.
Robin Lang, Head of Insurance Services at FMG said, “There can be many facets to a motor claim and every single element must be handled and assessed by people who are highly qualified and experienced within the relevant field in order to get the best result for our customer and the innocent third party. By working with The Building Repair Network we can limit our customers’ losses whilst ensuring the property owner gets a fast high quality repair at no cost and minimal inconvenience to them.”
The Building Repair Network manages the property repair or works closely with the property owner’s chosen repairer, with onsite or desk-top inspections to ensure the correct repair is completed to a high standard and costs and timescales are fair and accurate.
Peter Smith, Director - Client Services at The Building Repair Network said, “Our business is truly unique and we are delighted to support FMG with our specialist skills and qualifications in the insurance and built environment sectors. Our early involvement in a claim is crucial to achieving the best outcome for all parties and FMG’s ability to quickly contact the third party perfectly complements this. Getting on site early leads to an early agreement of the true repair cost, providing customers with greater transparency and control over repair costs and timescales, in addition to maintaining brand protection for FMG’s clients.”
Robin Lang, FMG said, “We endeavour to remove the financial vulnerability for our customers following at-fault incidents and our partnership with The Building Repair Network unlocks cost-mitigating opportunities in a whole new, but related, sector.”
