Hi
I think your renewal premium might rise too regardless of blame. That's my understanding anyway from friends who have been in a similar situation.

I must advise them, before any renewal of my insurance, of any accident 'Regardless of blame'

Sorry for being the forum pedant but -

You are insured to drive your car so if you are involved in an accident whether it was your fault or not then you have to inform the insurance company but you were not driving therefore you have no need to inform your insurance as they are not dealing with the claim and it cannot effect your no claims bonus.

Good day Kona,
Thanks for your kind response to my query.
I had a look through my car insurers policy document which states that I must advise them, before any renewal of my insurance, of any accident 'Regardless of blame'
I have done this. They were very understanding and recorded the incident details. They have confirmed that as I am just reporting the accident and am not making a claim, I would not be liable for any loss of no-claims or surcharge. If I was not satisfied with the outcome of the repairs etc, their legal department would then act on my behalf. They provided a reference number for any future communication with them on this incident.
I will obviously advise the Garage's insurance assessor that I have contacted my insurer.
Hopefully it will now proceed OK.
Regards,
Tamtoot

I would say no as you were not at the wheel when they damaged the car and they are fixing the damage they caused.

Good day,

While in for new brake pads today, my Hyundai Tucson suffered a collision inside the workshop. Fair bit of damage done and they have accepted liability. It is a reputable company. Their assessor will view the car next week.  Do I have to involve my insurer (Churchill) ?

Thanks for any advice.

I've noticed whenever you use an apostrophe it shows as -   I\'m,  I\'ve what are you using to access the forum?

That's a result of our conversion from PunBB to SMF - I'll eventually get round to correcting all the posts.
