What is Credit Hire?

Platinum Car Hire specialises in credit hire solutions that provide a free vehicle in replacement of your own model on a credit basis. As soon as works on your own vehicle have been completed and costs have been paid to the repairers by the insurer of the fault party, we will terminate the credit hire. In the case of a Total Loss vehicle we would end the hire once you have received a payment for the market value of your vehicle.

We subsequently work out the hire charges based on the amount of time our vehicle was in use and invoice invoice the insurer following the GTA ABI Rates. We then aim to recover all credit hire charges from the insurance company of the at-fault party.

All credit hire charges are based on GTA ABI rates and guidelines. ABI rates are used by the majority of credit hire companies and these can be viewed on the GTA website. We can offer a replacement vehicle for those customers that need a car if their vehicle is a Total Loss, Not Roadworthy, whilst their own vehicle is in for repair or are not fit for purpose in case’s of taxi’s claims. We have over ten years experience in claims handling and over six years of dealing in credit hire cases.

We can also handle your full case for personal injury, car hire, vehicle damage, vehicle repairs, storage and recovery, loss of earnings and any other out-of-pocket expenses. We always have expert solicitors available to assist in credit hire cases. Please call us today for free advice. We will always be happy to assist you.
