McCarron Coates and HH Driveright Deliver Insurance Discounts

06.10.22 · News

Award-winning insurance broker, McCarron Coates, has teamed up with van fleet security and compliance specialist, HH Driveright, to create an insurance offering that offers discounts to fleets which make use of HH Driveright’s risk management tools.

The broker is tapping into its network of insurer contacts to benefit HH Driveright solutions’ users and help fleet managers take better control of their risk management and insurance premiums.

The strategy is targeted at the fleet manager wishing to improve their claims experience. It directly rewards the use of HH Driveright’s fleet-focused safety technology, sophisticated driver behaviour analysis tools and claims management reporting systems, by lowering insurance costs.

HH Driveright recently had its suite of solutions endorsed at the Logistics UK Van Awards, where it won the ‘Keeping Your Show on the Road’ award, sponsored by the AA.  McCarron Coates will now be engineering an insurance discount for those using these solutions.

One is the HH Driveright GM2020, which immobilises any van, left unlocked with the keys in the ignition, within 10 seconds and which also offers in-depth driver analysis functionality. Other HH Driveright risk management options include an advanced app – an ally in the quest for fast and effective insurance claim reporting.

When arranging cover, McCarron Coates will offer quotes for both flat-rate and usage-based policies and insureds can access alternative excess options.  Competitive finance options are also available.

Ian McCarron, direct at McCarron Coates, says, “As a fleet broking specialist, we firmly believe that incorporating HH Driveright’s various technological solutions into a risk management programme can have a tangible positive impact on risk, help lower claims and greatly enhance compliance. By presenting all of the evidence to our insurer partners, we can help reward those who use HH Driveright’s products and services.

“We believe this is something any courier or general van fleet should consider, because it not only offers access to highly competitive premiums but requires the insured to have the solutions in place that improve their risk.  Fleets should remember that, as well as keeping insurance costs under better control, this reduces the hassle surrounding claims, managing vehicle repairs and having vehicles off the road.  There are numerous advantages.”

Rebecca Hall, managing director of HH Driveright, says: “We are delighted to be able to directly influence insurance quotations through our HH Driveright products.  This not only assists fleets’ operations but also demonstrates our solutions are on-point for those seeking to improve their claims experience and customer satisfaction levels.  They can provide fleets with a truly holistic approach to both risk management and compliance, making them safer and better-run operations.”
