When assessing your claim, certain documentation is required in order to review your claim. The sooner we receive the requested information, the quicker we can progress your claim. Turnaround time ranges between 1-4 weeks depending on circumstances (i.e. repairs required, availability of replacement parts, etc.)
Standard information required in the event of a claim:
- A completed claim form
- Purchase receipt for your bicycle
- Clear photos of the whole bicycle in its condition after the accident
- Photos of the damaged parts/sections of your bicycle
- Bicycle lock proof of purchase (if applicable)
- Clear photos of the theft location
- Depiction of how the area where the theft occurred was accessed
- Police reference number obtained after reporting the theft to the local authorities
Once the relevant documentation is provided, the claims team will review your claim and contact you. Key points to take note of:
- Additional information might be requested
- Provide a claims settlement based on the photo assessment (this applies to certain cases only and depends on each individual claim)
- Request that you take your bicycle to a bicycle shop for a physical assessment
- Have the bicycle collected via courier from your location for transportation to an assessor
- One of our representatives will collect your bicycle to have it assessed
Repair or Replacement
Depending on the outcome of the assessment, your bicycle and/or bicycle parts will be repaired or replaced at our discretion. If you have damage to a carbon frame or component, we may appoint a carbon assessor who will determine whether or not the damage is repairable. We will act based on their advice.
If we determine that your claim is a total loss, you will either be supplied with a new bicycle or offered a cash settlement.The settlement will be based on the lowest of:
- Our replacement cost for bicycle and or items
- The depreciated value of bicycle and or items (if older than 2-years)
- Our cost to repair
- Its market value
- Your sum insured
Less any applicable excess and outstanding premium if a total loss
