SGIC 5-Day Minor Collision Repairs $100 Guarantee Offer

This offer ended on 13 October 2017, but we encourage you to get a quote today for our Comprehensive Car Insurance.

With over over 45 years insuring South Australians, we know minor collisions are a nuisance, regardless of how small the dings or scratches may be. We all lead busy lives and need our cars for the daily commute, to ferry the kids around or just get away to explore our great state.

To reduce the amount of time your car is off the road after a collision, we’ve developed exclusive partnerships with some of the leading smash repairers in the industry who understand our customers deserve the highest standard of service and repairs. We call them SGIC Exclusive Repairers, because they only complete work for customers insured by an IAG brand such as SGIC.

We have such confidence in our Exclusive Repairers, if you have Comprehensive Car Insurance with SGIC and your car is safely drivable after a collision simply select one of our exclusive repairers when you lodge a claim and if the repairs take longer than 5 business days from the time you drop off your car, you’ll get $100*.

If your vehicle is safely driveable after a collision, all you need to do is:

  1. Lodge a Comprehensive Car Insurance claim online or over the phone on 133 233.
  2. While lodging your claim, book an inspection at an SGIC exclusive repairer – RPM Edwardstown or RPM Parra Hills.
  3. Attend the inspection at the SGIC exclusive repairer. This allows the repairer to assess what repair, parts and time will be required to repair your vehicle.
  4. Book your vehicle in for repairs at a time that suits you while attending the inspection or call the exclusive repairer when convenient.
  5. Drop your car off for repairs at the exclusive repairer for the time and day it is booked in.

If your vehicle repairs exceed 5 business days from the day you dropped it off at the repairer for repairs to commence, contact our claims team on 133 233. If you qualify for the $100 guarantee offer, we will request your email address and you will receive an email with further instructions within 2 business days. Follow the prompts in the email to choose from a $100 electronic funds transfer or select one $100 E-Gift Voucher from four merchants.

If your claim isn’t eligible for repair by an SGIC Exclusive Repairer, or it doesn’t meet the criteria for the $100 guarantee offer, don’t stress as we provide a lifetime guarantee for the workmanship on all authorised repairs. Speak to our claims team on 133 233 to find an option that works for you.
