Managing your premium
Should you claim on your insurance?

Knowing when to file a car insurance claim is one of the most daunting decisions. How does it affect your insurance premium and do you really want to lose your no claims bonus?

AutoMagic understands that in South Africa there are an array of possible damages that you can experience on your car which do not necessarily require you to start the car insurance claims process which could increase the cost of insuring your vehicle.

Cost effective techniques

Paintless dent removal is an example where faster and more cost effective (than traditional panel beating) techniques, can be used without you losing your no claims bonus. Your vehicle will not require colour matching or repainting when this technique is used. This option is available through AutoMagic. So go to any branch nationwide for a free assessment to find out if your dents can be removed using this cost effective technique.

Another example is a small bumper bashing. This allows you to avoid higher charges if your vehicle is in another accident as well as restoring the integrity of that component.

Unavoidable claims

AutoMagic works with insurance companies for the larger claims where you unfortunately have to make a claim. Should you have had a more serious accident, we are fully equipped and skilled to manage auto body collision repair and panel beating, all of which is tracked and managed through our AutoMagic insurance database software that maps the progress of your car accident repair whilst your vehicle is in our care.

Guaranteed workmanship

All workmanship on your car is guaranteed for as long as you own your vehicle (minimum of 3 years) and the paint used carries a lifetime guarantee as specified by the manufacturer. All parts used are covered by the guarantees of our respective suppliers, whether your repair is paid for by yourself or your insurance company.
