How to claim
If your vehicle develops a fault which may result in a claim under this warranty, please bring it to us. We will deal with the administrator direct and you will not have to pay for any work covered by your warranty (depending on any claim limits and excess that may apply).
If for any reason it is not possible to bring your vehicle to us, please contact the administrator on 01522 513833 for advice on finding a suitable repairer. Please remember that the maximum third-party hourly labour rate shown on page 1 will apply. This may limit the labour costs you can claim on any authorised repair, and you will be responsible for any difference in the labour costs if we authorise the claim. You will need to give the garage permission to diagnose the fault, then ask them to call the claims team on 01522 513833 with the following information when they have confirmed the cause of the fault but before they start any repairs.
- Vehicle registration number
- The current mileage
- The fault reported
- Details of the parts that need replacing
- Information on costs for both parts and labour
Please note: Sometimes we may need you to bring your vehicle to us or our recommended repairer for a repair covered by your warranty, instead of using your local garage.
In all cases, you are responsible for giving permission to diagnose the fault and you will be responsible for all costs until the administrator issues an authorisation number. If we accept your claim, we will pay all reasonable charges for work that was necessary to find the fault (diagnostic charges).
The administrator will issue an authority number on our behalf for the amount of the claim they agree to (depending on any claim limits and excess that may apply), but they are not responsible for paying any claims.
Invoicing and paying authorised claims The repairer should send an invoice in our name (Ashdene Garage Ltd) to the administrator's office by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The administrator will confirm the claim and ask us to make the payment. If it is not possible for the repairer to email the invoice to the administrator, they should post a copy to: Crystal Clear Warranty, PO Box 4, Lincoln, LN3 4DE. Please make sure the invoice is made out to the correct name (Ashdene Garage Ltd) as the payment may be delayed or even prevented if it is not.
If you use a garage other than us, and the repairer insists that you pay for the work up front, you may have to pay the bill and then send it to the administrator. The administrator will then ask us to refund you the amount of any agreed claim (depending on any claim limits or excess that may apply).
Repair work must not begin until the administrator has agreed the claim. If you do not keep to this condition, you may not be able to make a claim under this warranty. If you have any questions about any of the above, please call the claims team on 01522 513833 for help.
