Kwik-Fit Insurance

Published on December 14, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

The Kwik Fit people seem to have been around as long as the car itself,  helping the driver with all their motoring needs, from a broken mirror to a full  MOT. It only makes sense then that they would extend their motoring services to  the insurance market, surely if they can get you back on the road they can  protect you while you’re on it also.


With that in mind the Kwik Fit people started to provide cover, one that  offers their customers more perks than a driver is likely to know what to do  with. Firstly they offer some of the usual features; guaranteed courtesy car,  full glass cover and a hire car if you are the unfortunate victim of theft. If  those features are already appealing to your car insurance palate then their  array of additional discounts will only make you salivate, so as to keep you on  the right path they are offering their customers a huge £100 discount on a  satellite navigation system.

Rather than having to pay the RRP of £149.99, you would only have to shell  out £49.99 for the Michelin X960. It comes with a large 3.5″ touch screen  display with full UK postcode search and UK Street level maps. It also aids in  keeping pedestrians safe as it is able to detect the vehicles speed and warn  when the current speed limit is being exceeded.

Now that they have really and truly whet your appetite they continue to  plough your budget conscious senses with delectable discounts. Each customer  that signs up to take advantage of the feature packed portfolio that is Kwik  Fit’s car insurance policy, they are gifted with the Kwik Fit auto save card.  This discount allows the holder to enjoy 10% off everything they buy from Kwik  Fit centres throughout the UK, so whether you need to get a new set of tires or  need a car service you’ll enjoy a ten percent reduction when you get to the  till.

An MOT is vital to the deeming of your vehicle road worthy and is also a  legal requirement; so considering it is something you have to do every year you  might as well save some money as you do, no doubt that extra ten percent would  come in handy when that time of year comes around.

While saving money is usually at the forefront of a person’s mind when they  are looking to take out insurance for another year, remembering to obtain the  best level of cover you can may save you money in the long run, even if it costs  you a few extra pounds at the outset. It is probably after seeing a number of  customers in their forecourts that had failed to obtain cover for an eventuality  they didn’t account for that Kwik Fit began offering their customers ‘add-ons’  to their core policies. One such add-on is their breakdown cover that offers  various levels of cover; Kwik Assist Roadside and Kwik Assist Recovery. While  they both offer 24-hour cover, 365 days a year with an average response of time  of 40 minutes they do differ somewhat.

As their names suggest, Kwik Assist Roadside will offer assistance at the  road while the other will simply take you to a particular address. Each will  appeal to different demographics for various reasons, a business with a fleet of  cars may only want to make use of the Kwik Assist recovery and bring the car  back to ‘base’ or their approved mechanic. On the other hand, an individual that  is self employed may need to have their vehicle up and running asap and if  that’s at the roadside then that would be infinitely better than having to be  taken home or to a mechanic. As time is precious to the self-employed road  users, spending as little time as possible without a vehicle is the  objective.
