CAR COMPREHENSIVE COLLISION CLAIM NRMA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3475.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with NRMA. I have six policies with NRMA,and when I recently had my first 'at fault' accident,I was expecting to be given the run-around,with endless interrogation etc. Such was not the case..... I simply notified NRMA,by phone,that I had been involved in an accident and the very helpful lady took all the details that I had.There was no damage to my vehicle,so no repairs,but everything else seems to gave been managed well,as I have had no further communication from the other party,the tow company,or the repairer. NRMA has handled it all. Well done NRMA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comforting and reasuring. Car was written off but the whole process was made so much easier by all those that organised taxi and tow truck and every step in the process. Extensive conversations with several people and all very caring and comforting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Treated Well, Bad Advice About Hire Car Option My accident happened mid December - I was not at fault. I was told none of your approved reapirers could even look at the car unti end of Jan. I was told I did not have the hire car option and even though I was not at fault I would be without a car. I have 3 young children, start of school holidays and this is our only car so I was under pressure to get the repairs done quickly. I chose a non approved repairer who could do the work straight away. Apparently that places me in the position of having to inspect the repairs myself (what do I know about that) and you won't gurantee the work. The next day 3 different peple told me about Right2Drive - I contacted them and within 2 days they gave me a replacement like for like 5 seat SUV at no cost to me. They will pursue the other insurance company (which is also NRMA) to cover the costs. My point is - why didn't you help me organise a hire car to the same extent that Right2Drive were able to help me with and then that wouldn't have put me in the lesser position of having to go with a non approved repairer?
