Assessments and repairs

If your damaged vehicle is driveable, we’ll ask you to take it to one of the following to be assessed and fixed:

  • one of our network repairers
  • a local repairer (if there isn't a network repairer near you).

Alternatively, we may ask you to take your car to one of our two assessment centres, in Sydney:

The assessments generally take about 15 minutes and we can even help find a repairer for you.

If your damaged car is not driveable, call us on 1300 885 996 and we’ll arrange for it to be towed.

After assessing your vehicle’s damage and authorising the repairs, we can appoint a repairer and manage the whole repair process on your behalf.

Our repairs are guaranteed for as long as you own the car.

Alternatively, you may be able to nominate your preferred repairer.

Roadside Assistance

For $79.95 a year – about $1.60 a week – you can take advantage of our 24/7, nationwide Roadside Assistance service. 

Whether your car conks out in Darling Harbour or Broken Hill, our New South Wales network of roadside contractors means you’re never too far from help.
