HDFC ERGO General Insurance Company, one of the largest non-life insurance provider in the private sector, has launched a bouquet of unique services for their Motor policyholders under the brand campaign – ‘Zaroorataapki, lekin #ZimmedariHamari’ (Your need is our responsibility). Services like #JumpStartThem, Fast Track Theft Settlement and Door Step Repairs have been introduced to ensure customers can smoothly navigate through challenges they may face, especially during the ongoing pandemic period.
The onset of COVID-19 pandemic has hampered normal functioning as well as the use of vehicles. Having identified these challenges, HDFC ERGO has come forward to offer services to provide additional benefits to policyholders and boost adoption of motor insurance in India. Anticipating further challenges which may become a pain-point for their customer during the monsoons, HDFC ERGO introduced services like:
- #JumpStartThem – offers customers to jumpstart their vehicles to revive car batteries and fix flat tyres
- Fast Track Theft Settlement – enhanced quick and seamless theft claim settlement, wherein the average settlement theft claims is done within a record period of 9 days as opposed to the earlier average of 70 days
- Door Step Repair – bringing repair executives to visit the customers, either at their residence of a place of convenience, to conduct minor repairs on their vehicles (two and four-wheelers) to ensure zero downtime while eliminating the need to visit a workshop
Speaking about these initiatives, Mr. Parthanil Ghosh, President – Motor Business, HDFC ERGO General Insurance said, “Understanding challenges faced by the customers in the current pandemic situation we have introduced services which they can immediately avail at their door-step and as per their convenience.
