Being involved in a car accident is a stressful, often traumatising experience for all parties involved. But despite the injuries that can be caused to the drivers and the passengers involved, they also ordinarily result in physical damage being done to the vehicles themselves.
If you’re in a car accident, whether you caused it or not, there is a chance your vehicle will need to be repaired or replaced, leaving you without a car in the meantime. The time it takes for the repairs to be done or for the replacement vehicle to be organised depends on the severity of the damage done to your vehicle and/or your own financial circumstances and whether you can afford the repairs or replacement quickly.
This reality makes being involved in a car accident all the more distressing and the period between when the car accident occurs and when your vehicle is returned to you in complete working condition, or is replaced, can seem like a lifetime.
To alleviate the stress caused to you during this period, most insurance companies will attempt to provide you some peace of mind by offering a temporary replacement vehicle to use during the repair or replacement process.
While this temporary replacement vehicle service is good in theory, and offers you some redress from the inconvenience that comes from being in a car accident, most insurance companies who offer the service only make available their standard vehicles without considering the vehicle you were driving and without taking account of the needs you have.
Acorn Rentals offers a temporary replacement vehicle service, but we do things a little differently from the rest. We take the replacement vehicle service to the next level by guaranteeing like-for-like replacement vehicles.
What this means for you is that during the repair or replacement process of your own vehicle, we will provide you with a ‘like-for-like’ vehicle that matches or suits the make and model of the vehicle you’re used to driving and, if needs be, fulfils the function requirement of the vehicle you’re used to driving. For example, if the vehicle you’re used to driving is a utility with a tray, we will provide a utility with a tray. It’s as simple as that.
Our jam-packed fleet list includes the following:
- Toyota Yaris Ascent;
- Toyota Corolla Hatch Ascent;
- Toyota Camry Altise;
- Toyota Camry Hybrid;
- Toyota Aurion AT-X;
- Toyota RAV4 GX;

So if you’re in a car accident and, like us, you think it’s important to have a temporary replacement vehicle that actually replaces the vehicle you’re used to driving, then give our friendly customer service team on 1300 22 67 67 and move on with Acorn.
