Who is Coverbox?
Coverbox is long established as one of the UK’s leading telematics brands. However, in 2014 we had an idea which changed the face of the telematics insurance market. Since then we have joined forces with major car insurers to provide a product and service unlike anything else currently available – telematics has finally evolved.
What is the aim of Coverbox?
Coverbox has one goal; to use telematics technology intelligently to reduce the cost of car insurance; both for us as the insurer and for you as the customer.
What is telematics?
A telematics device, also known as a black box, is small piece of equipment that is discreetly fitted to your car in order to record information about your driving. For example, your speed, acceleration, braking, journey times, and mileage.
How does Coverbox use telematics data?
We do not monitor your data on an ongoing basis. Instead, we respect your privacy by only accessing this information in two circumstances. One - in the event of an accident claim or vehicle theft the data allows us to help you quickly and effectively. Two - we also evaluate your black box data at renewal time; this allows us to ensure your next policy is priced in a way that accurately reflects your potential risk as a driver. It is a great opportunity for you to make significant savings on the cost of your car insurance.
How does Coverbox make car insurance cheaper?
Coverbox makes car insurance cheaper, not only for us but for you. Our approach is different to some other telematics providers – we use telematics to reduce claims costs by utilising data to clarify disputes, identify fraud, settle claims early and minimise legal fees and fuss. For example, if you are not at fault in an incident, we can defend your claim. While if you are at fault, we can settle quickly – in both cases there is a significant saving. This makes car insurance cheaper, both for us and for you.
How is the telematics device fitted?
Once you have purchased your policy with us you can arrange to have one of our operatives fit the telematics device at your earliest convenience. It is a simple process that generally takes less than an hour to complete. The box itself is very unobtrusive and is roughly the size of a smartphone. We fit it and you forget it, unless you need it, of course.
When does your cover begin?
Your cover begins from the date you specify at the time of purchase. For example, if your policy starts on a Monday but you do not have your telematics device fitted until Thursday you are nonetheless insured for the period in-between. In the vast majority of cases, devices are fitted within 14 days.
Who does Coverbox benefit?
Coverbox benefits any safe and responsible driver who wishes to pay as little as possible for their car insurance. Young drivers and low mileage drivers are just two groups who might reap particular benefit.
