You've recently purchased a new car. You get a call from your dealer saying that it's ready to collect. With all the excitement of going to pick up your new set of wheels, purchasing insurance may have slipped your mind.
You'll have to spend time calling your insurer, waiting for your new insurance certificate and you may also have to pay an administration fee. How about if you're buying your first car and you've never taken out insurance before? You'll have to spend time getting quotes from various insurers, when all you really want to do is drive your new car!
Hyundai is taking away this worry with the introduction of Free Seven Day Cover. At no cost, Hyundai customers will be offered comprehensive insurance cover for one week, enabling them to drive away in their new car. This is available to all new and used Hyundai vehicles purchased through the Hyundai dealer network.
Customers are also invited to extend the insurance and buy cover for 12 months. Unlike most other UK insurance policies, this cover guarantees to repair customers' vehicles at Hyundai approved bodyshops. Only genuine Hyundai parts will be used - helping to protect the vehicle's residual value, resale appeal and safety rating.
In a separate new offering, customers not insured by Hyundai are encouraged to call Hyundai First after an accident or vehicle theft. With one call, Hyundai Accident AfterCare will liaise with the customer's insurer and manage the entire claims process on the customer's behalf. Everything will be taken care of, from vehicle recovery and filling in claim forms to arranging a courtesy car and providing legal support. They'll guarantee the highest quality of vehicle repair, and the vehicle will be restored to its pre-accident condition using only genuine Hyundai parts at approved bodyshops. And what's more, the work will be guaranteed for five years - all for free.Published 12 May 2010
