What is credit hire?

Credit hire is the supply of a like-for-like replacement vehicle on a credit basis to a non-fault driver involved in an accident.

A lot of insurers will advise their non-fault customer to contact a credit hire company to get a replacement vehicle whilst their damaged vehicle is being repaired. The cost for these services is then claimed back from the at-fault driver’s insurer. However, due to the complex law and highly contentious nature of these charges, credit hire companies can find it difficult to recover their outstanding charges from the other insurer.

This is where we can help!
