Motor vehicle owners urged to insure their automobiles

MOTOR Vehicle owners in the country have been urged to cut insurance for their vehicles so as to be covered whenever they fall into road accidents and thus avoid to spend much expenses.

National Insurance Corporation (NIC) director of marketing and customer services Yesaya Mwakifulefule made the call here when the institution’s officials from headquarters and Mbeya office visited various customers.

According to him most of the road accidents have been leaving damages in both human and vehicles, so having motor insurance in hands was imperative.

The officials visited various motor garages that have been working with NIC including the China Garage located in Uyole ward in Mbeya city.

“Some accidents are inevitable, so if the owner of the vehicles has insurance he/she will have no stress even after the accidents because everything lost or damaged will be recovered,” he said.

He named some of the human factors for road accidents as reckless drivers, driving at unmanageable speed, defective vehicles, things that needs more education to curb.

Mwakifulefule said that NIC has a number of insurance products including the motor insurance which covers against accidental damage and theft of the insured vehicle, bodily injury and third party property damage.

“We are currently available in all regions providing exceptional services to over 200 customers per year, so we urge all motor vehicles owners and those in need of other insurance products to visit our offices,” he added.

He said NIC provides high quality customer focused insurance services to organizational, commercial and personal line clients through innovative marketing, efficient and effective management of resources thus maximizing stakeholders’ returns.

According to him, the corporation covers insurance payments to a victim of road accident within seven days.

Some of the customers and stakeholders commended NIC for valuing them and for always coming up with products that favours its customers.

Yang Jie, director of China Garage said they have been working closely with NIC to ensure that customers access their rights on time.
