Being involved in a car accident isn’t fun, and sometimes it’s downright dreadful. What can make it worse is if you’re car is damaged in the accident and needs repairing or replacing, leaving you without a vehicle for a sometimes extended period of time. This is especially frustrating when you’re not the person who caused the accident.
What you might not know, however, is that if you are involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault and you need a courtesy vehicle to drive while your own vehicle is being repaired or replaced, you are actually legally entitled to have that courtesy car for free.
What happens is this: you engage a service like Acorn to provide you with a courtesy vehicle and, if you’re not the driver at fault, we provide the service free of charge to you personally, and then we recover our fee from the insurer(s) involved in the claim process.
It’s as simple as that.
And what’s unique about the Acorn service is our like-for-like courtesy car policy. Because we are a large national service we have an extensive fleet of replacement vehicles that suit any style or function of vehicle you are used to driving, so we can make the guarantee that we will replace your damaged vehicle with one just like it.
Our like-for-like policy is what differentiates us from our competitors, companies that don’t have the vehicle fleet size to make the like-for-like promise, and who end up trying to fit one of their vehicles into your life, instead of trying to fit your life into one of their vehicles.
Our jam-packed fleet list includes the following vehicles:
- Toyota Yaris Ascent;
- Toyota Corolla Hatch Ascent;
- Toyota Camry Altise;
- Toyota Camry Hybrid;
- Toyota Aurion AT-X;
- Toyota RAV4 GX;
- Toyota Kluger GX;
- Toyota HiLux;
- Toyota HiLux Dual Cab;
- Toyota HiAce LWB; and,
- Hyundai iMax 14 Hero.
