Box fitting

We want to make telematics car insurance as simple and effective as possible. As a Coverbox customer you agree to have a small, black box device fitted discreetly in your car and we use it to help keep any claims costs and disputes to a minimum. The telematics box is supplied, fitted and maintained free of charge. The device must be fitted within 28 days of the start of the policy, but we make the process as straightforward as possible and usually fit within 14 days.

Installation at a time and place to suit you

You can have the device installed anywhere you choose (providing there is a safe area for our installation operative to work) and at a time to suit you. It can be at home or at work - in fact your car can be at home and you can be at work – you don’t even need to be present. As long as our box fitter has access to the car, the car keys, and the relevant documentation is available, we will fit the device.*

What does fitting entail?

Our specially trained technicians fit the small device (approximate dimensions 100mm x 50mm x 25mm) behind the dashboard of your vehicle. It will be securely attached so you can forget it is there. The fitting, in most cases, takes under an hour. The box will be switched on immediately, or from the date you wish cover to start. Coverbox will provide insurance cover for your vehicle before the device is fitted, but our technicians must be given access to the vehicle within 28 days or the policy will be cancelled. Once the fitting is complete, our technicians will take four photos of the vehicle for our records. These are used in the event of a claim to prove the condition of the vehicle at commencement of the policy.

All you have to do is drive

Once the black box is fitted you don’t have to worry about it. If it malfunctions, we will fix it free of charge. When the policy ends we will switch it off, unless you renew your insurance with Coverbox. We will only come to take the box out of the vehicle if you specifically request it. If you sell the vehicle, all you have to do is let the new owner know about the box, but unless they choose to buy Coverbox insurance, the device will not collect any further data. If you drive safely and responsibly while the box is activated, you are very likely to be rewarded with a lower-priced premium at renewal.
