Keep Your Car in Showroom Condition

You’ve posed for the mandatory photos. You’ve removed the velvet ribbon from your shiny new ride. You turn the key for the first time… and, with butterflies in your stomach, you drive carefully through the open door of the dealership into … your everyday life.

If you’re lucky enough to have experienced that moment, you’ll know that your car never looked (and smelled) as good as it did that first day. As you drive into everyday life, you face the reality that comes with owning a car.

Almost as good as new!

While we can’t replicate that “new car” smell for you, we can provide you with peace of mind when it comes to those annoying windscreen chips, minor dents or tiny scratches to your vehicle.

By adding MiWay’s MiMotor Combo to your car insurance policy, you’ll have the comfort of knowing that you can quickly get back to living your way when everyday motoring hazards cause damage, such as:

  • scuffed bumpers;
  • paint chips;
  • light scratches;
  • minor dents;
  • windscreen chips;
  • scratches to your car’s rims or alloy wheels; or
  • damage to your car’s tyres.

We know that with life’s busy schedule, the last thing you want is to be dealing with are these irritations – especially when you have your everyday commute to tackle! Make your life easier by easily adding the MiMotor Combo product to your existing policy by using the MiWay App, or get in touch with us.

Windscreen damage – why it needs to be repaired immediately

If you decide that minor damage is just one of those things that you’ll live with, please remember that your car's windscreen is one of the most important safety features of your vehicle. If you were involved in an accident where your car was to roll, the windscreen is meant to act as a vertical support, making it less likely for the body of the car to be crushed from the impact. If, however, the glass is not as sturdy as it should be, it could break during the accident, resulting in serious injury and sometimes death.

Ignoring the damage also reduces the chance of cost-effective repairs, forcing you to replace the entire windscreen at a much greater cost. As if you didn’t have enough to worry about!

At MiWay, we’re constantly looking for ways to make things easier for our clients. Depending on the size and location of the crack or chip, our service providers will repair your windscreen at no additional cost*. This offer is only applicable to MiWay car insurance clients with cover for accidental damage specified on their policy.

Pro tip: while you're with the windscreen repairer, ask for a few chip repair plasters for future use - they help to prevent windscreen chips from becoming nasty cracks!

*Terms and conditions apply. Some windscreen chips cannot be repaired and will need to be replaced– we will not compromise on safety. To find out more, get in touch with us!
