What cover options does The Warehouse car insurance offer?

The Warehouse provides three levels of cover so you can choose the right one to suit your needs and budget. Even though car insurance is not compulsory in New Zealand, it is worth choosing at least a minimum level of cover so that you are not left with the liability to pay if you should cause an accident.

How much excess will I pay?

You will be given a standard excess amount when you complete your online quote. You can either choose to keep this or increase the excess to make your premiums lower. If the driver of your vehicle is under 25 or is classed as an inexperienced driver, there will be additional excesses to pay.

How to save on your The Warehouse car insurance policy

  • Higher excess. By choosing a higher excess you can reduce the cost of your premium.
  • Consider your options. Not everybody needs the optional extras that are on offer. Carefully consider what you really need to keep your premiums as low as possible.
  • Pay annually. By paying your annual premium in one lump sum you can save money compared to when paying in instalments.

How do I make a claim?

To make a claim, all you need to do is contact The Warehouse by phone and provide the details of what has happened. You will need to collect details of witnesses plus details of any police reports made. Often claims are able to be done completely over the phone so you won’t need to fill in any forms. Each case is unique so you will be advised of what steps you need to take.
