About Sytner Drive
Why should you settle for second best?
If you lose the use of your car as the result of an accident that was not your fault, you can rely on sytnerdrive to get you straight back into the driving seat of a vehicle of the same standard as the one you originally chose.
Our service is truly unique and available exclusively to those people who drive quality cars - at a time when they most need help. The only conditions are that you have no other suitable car at your disposal, and that you can show a need for a quality car (for example, maintaining your business image).
Protecting your right to choose
Thank you for choosing Sytner to repair your car. Our manufacturer-trained professionals work to the highest standards using only original manufacturer’s parts - guaranteeing that your warranty remains intact. This is vital in protecting the resale value of what may well be your second biggest asset. Despite what your insurance company may lead you to believe you can choose exactly where to take your car for repair. What’s more, you need only get a single estimate.
We ask the questions - you get the car
The sytnerdrive service is refreshingly straightforward. We will talk to you about the circumstances of your accident and about the identity of the person you believe to have caused it. We will also discuss how you generally use your car. Provided that we are confident you will be able to recover the hire charges from the negligent third party, we will then provide an acceptable replacement. It’s as easy as that.
Credit hire protecting you
The principle of credit hire is simple. Once we have made certain that you qualify for a car, we will hire one to you immediately on competitive credit terms. That means you can get on with your life while your own car is out of action.
The sytnerdrive service is a new product available to our customers, delivered by market leaders Helphire Car Rental, who have pioneered their like-for-like accident replacement vehicle concept for more than a decade.
Credit where credit is due
When you take delivery of your vehicle we will ask you to sign an agreement that clearly shows our hire rates and the terms of hire, along with a form that confirms the details you have given to us. The period of any credit, in order to comply with the Consumer Credit Act, is restricted to 51 weeks - which is normally more than ample time for your claim to be settled.
Getting your own back
As a leading name in their field, our partners Helphire Car Rental have agreements with the majority of the UK insurance industry. This enables us to forward your invoice to them instantly for immediate payment.
In the rare cases where Swift Prestige Car Rental do not have an agreement, it may be necessary for you to instruct one of our panel of solicitors. Our panel is carefully selected from top legal firms around the UK, and each member is an acknowledged expert in the area of road traffic accidents. You will be offered first class advice on recovering all of your losses not covered by your own comprehensive insurance policy, such as diminution of vehicle value, loss of earnings, personal injury and your policy excess - as well as the hire charges.
