What about those niggling little expenses caused by everyday motoring eventualities? What do you do if you get a flat tyre or if you accidentally bump into something when reversing and get a small dent in your car? For dents, scratches and roadside assistance, you need car insurance that includes 24-hour roadside assistance, especially when you realise how many cars out there have not been insured.
A scary fact is that approximately 65% of South African drivers have no car insurance. This is an alarming statistic which means that the majority of drivers on our roads are putting themselves and the drivers around them at unnecessary risk. Most people are not insured because they don’t think that they can afford insurance. Be that as it may, with PMD, there is an insurance plan to suit any budget.
Here are a few different scenarios which could happen to any of us, illustrating the need for car insurance and the benefits of having car insurance.
Example one: Chris and his friend Mark are both students and are driving to varsity one day when Chris notices that the car is out of fuel and is beginning to cut out. A few seconds later the car breaks down and the nearest fuel station is nowhere in sight. Chris is a PMD client and immediately phones the helpline. Not long afterward, help arrives and the friendly, professional staff member assists him.
Example two: Lucy is driving her two children to school when she drives over a sharp object in the road and her tyre is punctured. She calls PMD for help and soon a helpful staff member arrives and changes the tyre and the children still make it to school on time.
Example three: Andrew is reversing when he suddenly gets distracted by somebody shouting in the parking lot and he accidentally bumps into the wall, denting and scratching his vehicle. He calls PMD and is told to take the car to the approved panel beater, who repairs all of the damage, restoring the car to showroom condition once more.
Example four: Tessa and Tyler are driving to the beach when suddenly the car cuts out for absolutely no apparent reason. They can’t get it working again and so Tyler calls PMD, who dispatch someone to assist, who arrives shortly afterward and tows the vehicle to the nearest reputable repair centre.
Whether you need your bumper scuffs, minor dents and windshield chips fixed, or if you require roadside assistance, getting car insurance that includes it will be the ideal insurance plan to cover all the expensive realities of driving. Keep your car in showroom condition and feel secure in the knowledge that if something goes wrong, Prime Meridian will be there to assist you.
