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).

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 you’re stuck on the side of the road in Hobart or the Central Highlands, our Tasmanian network of roadside contractors means you’re never too far from help.

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance

All vehicles in Australia must have CTP cover before they can be registered and legally driven on the road; motorists pay for this cover either as part of their vehicle registration fee or separately.

In Tasmania, CTP insurance is provided by the Motor Accidents Insurance Board (MAIB).

For more information, visit the MAIB website.
