Uniq-Cover – Vehicles
Please note: The following is only a guide to assist you in determining your insurance needs and should be seen as such. Your proposal form, policy document and schedule should be seen as your contract with Indequity Specialised Insurance Ltd, in conjunction with all other correspondence that may be sent to you from time to time. These are the legal documents forming the basis of our contract with you and should be consulted in all instances.
All vehicles insured in terms of your policy are to be fitted with either a VESA-approved level 3 or 4 immobiliser or a Visa approved gear lock. All vehicles valued at more than R200 000 are to be fitted with an approved satellite tracking device. If no such device is fitted, theft and hijack cover will be excluded. Proof of installation of such security systems must be submitted to Indequity. Please ensure that security devices installed in vehicles are tested on a regular basis and that they are kept in working order.f
Should any insured vehicle be parked or left unattended for any period, it is imperative that all these security measures be operational, including the gear lock. Parking tickets, access cards and remote controls must not be left in unattended vehicles that are parked in parking areas. Accessibility to parking tickets gives thieves the opportunity to drive your vehicle out of the parking area with ease.
Please be aware that the values of your vehicles are automatically updated annually. The onus is on you to check these values and to inform us to add any extras.
Any vehicle used for more than ten business-related trips per month, must be insured for business usage. The use of your vehicle between your home and place of employment is regarded as private travel. Only people who hold a valid South African driver’s licence may drive insured vehicles. Should a vehicle be driven by an individual not in possession of such a licence, cover will automatically be suspended.
Once the insured’s children leave the parental home permanently, their vehicles may no longer be insured under their parents’ policy, unless the vehicle is registered in the name of the parent. Indequity must nevertheless be advised where the vehicle is kept.
Insured vehicles must be maintained in a roadworthy condition, with particular emphasis on tyres and brakes.
Although 30-days car hire is automatically included in the event of theft, optional car hire cover is available for accident damage and can be selected on application. We have three options available to you:
