How To Make A Claim
Making a claim under your Vehicle Repair Agreement has never been easier.
Just follow the steps laid out below.
You can also report a potential claim to us using the below contact form.
All calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
Please note that the correct claim procedure must be followed. Bluechip Warranty must be contacted and supplied with an estimate prior to any work being undertaken. All claims and/or repairs must be authorised before any repair work is commenced; failure to do so will result in the claim being declined.
In the event of you experiencing a fault with your vehicle, please take your vehicle to a VAT registered repairer for the fault to be diagnosed.
Once your chosen repairer has identified a mechanical or electrical failure (along with an explanation of the cause of failure), we will require an itemised estimate to be submitted, which includes parts, labour, VAT costs, and current mileage.
This estimate should then be submitted to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the claims form below.
We will then assess the claim details supplied and advise if you have a valid claim.
No work should commence until an authorisation code has been issued.
If you have a valid claim, an authorisation certificate (with a unique authorisation code) will be emailed to the vehicle repairer and/or customer.
Once you open a claim, you will have a maximum of 60 days, or up to the expiry date of your vehicle repair agreement (whichever is sooner), to comply with and complete the claims process.
If you have elected to have your vehicle repaired at a main dealer, you will be responsible for any additional parts and labour costs.
Please refer to your Vehicle Repair Agreement booklet and relevant supporting documentation for further information.
Please submit the repair invoice to Bluechip Warranty for payment.
Please ensure you clearly state the authorisation code, repairer details, and payee details (account holder's name, sort code, and account number) on the invoice.
Claims payments are processed on a weekly basis (Friday), subject to documentation being received by 1 p.m. by the prior Thursday. Please allow 2-3 days for the funds to reach your account.
Use the below contact form to report a fault to us and open a claim, submit a repair estimate for assessment, or submit an invoice for an authorised repair.
(Estimates must include the full contact details of your chosen repairer.)
You will receive a confirmation email once we receive and process your claim submission request. Please check your junk mail if you have not received this.
In the meantime, you can follow the claims process as stated above within the Vehicle Repair Agreement booklet and terms of service.
The matter was dealt with very professionally and quickly so our customer was back on the road within 24 hours and the claim was paid in a very timely manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anybody looking for a trustworthy warranty company.
They replied quickly and efficiently. They were extremely helpful and even due to not meeting all the criteria's to get my money back, they understood the circumstances and authorised my payment. I couldn't be happier with the experience I received.
Absolutely fantastic, and we have faith in their ability to quickly and promptly sort out any issues that we or our customers may have.
