data on every make and model of vehicle on the UK roads.

Accident Management


Our Accident Management service covers both fault and non-fault accidents with a 24/7, 365 days a year incident response line.


After your call, to the dedicated Autoserve customer only line, our Accident Management partner will* arrange for the vehicle to be recovered and taken to an approved garage for a review of the damage and for repair. Our partner has access to a nationwide network of BS-10125 approved repairers who work to agreed labour rates and part discounts. They also have in-house ATA / VDA Qualified Engineers who review estimates to ensure true and fair damage costs.


While the car is in for repair they will provide you with a courtesy car, free of charge, and will contact the relevant insurance companies on your behalf to settle any claims. They’ll also provide free legal assistance if you, as the driver, is not at fault. As an added bonus, our partner also has a high value of delegated authority with a number of large insurers which in turn will help to minimise downtime and overall claim costs.

 

Breakdown Assistance


Whether it’s going to an important business meeting, a social engagement or picking the kids up from school, a breakdown in any vehicle is unpleasant, time consuming and costly. Breakdown Assistance comes included with an Autoserve maintenance contract. If your vehicle breaks down anywhere in the UK, including at home, simply give Autoserve a call and we’ll arrange for a reputable breakdown company, such as the AA, to attend to the vehicle 24/7. The main aim of this will be to fix the vehicle by the roadside, if this is not possible the vehicle will be towed to a local approved garage for repair.

 

Servicing, Maintenance & MOT


By taking out a maintenance contract with Autoserve, the vehicles servicing, maintenance and MOT testing costs will be covered for the duration of the contract, providing you with peace of mind. When a vehicle’s service light appears or when the vehicle manufacturers guidelines indicate that a service or MOT is due, you simply need to contact us at Autoserve to let us know and we’ll do the rest. We’ll find the closest approved garage to either your work or home address, which ever you prefer, and we’ll arrange (subject to availability) the collection and delivery of the vehicle or a courtesy car. Autoserve will authorise any work proposed by the garage and if any repairs are needed, which fall outside
of the contract, the pre-negotiated prices will be passed to you before any work is completed, allowing you to remain in control of any extra costs which may occur.


As part of the vehicle’s service, the maintenance contract will cover items such as:
- Checking the engine oil and replacing / topping up if required
- Brake pads and discs
- Bulbs
- Fuel, oil, air and pollen filters
- Spark plugs
- Topping up Adblue
- Checking and topping up fluids such as brake fluid, engine coolant and windscreen washer fluid
- General servicing vehicle checks including testing the battery, checking the suspension system and tyres
- Resetting the service light


At Autoserve we work with a wide range of approved BOSCH and main dealer service centres across the UK who, subject to availability, can collect and deliver the vehicle or can provide you with a free courtesy vehicle while your vehicle is in the garage.

 

Tyres


Tyres play a crucial role in vehicle safety which should not be compromised. Due to this vehicle tyres are covered by our maintenance contracts.


If at any time, during the contract period, the vehicles tyres need replacing because the tread depth is worn to 2mm or less (fair wear and tear), or if the tyre suffers a puncture they will be repaired or replaced, free of charge. Premium branded tyres are fitted to ensure quality, safety and longer life.


You will need to take your vehicle to your local National Tyre or Kwikfit centre and show your driver card which would have been posted to you. After inspecting the vehicle’s tyres, the tyre centre will then contact Autoserve for authorisation and will replace the tyres if authorised to do so.


Any sidewall damage or requests for the purchase and/or fitting of winter tyres is not included and will notbe authorised. Alloy wheel replacements/repairs are not covered.

 

Warranty Claims

For the duration of the maintenance contract, if the vehicle develops any faults which fall under the vehicles warranty we’ll happily deal with the warranty claim on the drivers behalf. You simply need to give Autoserve a call and we’ll do the rest.

 

De-Fleeting

When your vehicle is ready to be returned to the lease company, Autoserve can arrange for a de-fleet inspector to inspect the vehicle and advise on anything which may need to be repaired. Our de-fleeting partner will also provide you with a quote for any work which is recommended. This is to help avoid any further (any usually more expensive) costs which may be imposed if the vehicle is not returned in the expected condition.
