QBE launches heavy vehicle repair network


QBE Insurance Australia (QBE) today launched its first Heavy Vehicle Repairer Network, providing its customers access to end-to-end heavy vehicle repairs from accredited specialist providers across Australia. 

The establishment of the dedicated network is part of an ongoing strategic review of QBE’s motor claims division which has also seen the insurer relaunch its Accredited Smash Repair (ASR) Network, now boasting the broadest coverage in Australia, and establish a Hail Repairer Network.

QBE Executive General Manager Claims, Jon Fox, said QBE had partnered with businesses who share its commitment to delivering excellent customer service and the network would mean faster repair cycle times and guaranteed quality repairs. 

“As one of Australia’s largest heavy vehicle insurers and in line with our commitment to providing the best possible customer experience, we’re pleased to launch a heavy vehicle repairer network of preferred suppliers.

“This supply chain will help us to ensure our customers receive exceptional customer service, high quality, efficient and cost-effective repairs from suppliers we’re confident can meet evolving customer expectations.”

The launch follows a rigorous selection and qualification process which included supplier site visits and premises inspections to ensure the most qualified and equipped providers were selected.

Mr Fox said he expected the network would see similar successes as QBE’s new ASR Network, relaunched this year, and the new network was a key part of the insurers strategic claims review.

“We’ve seen some fantastic early success off the back of our ASR launch including NPS results that show better customer claims experiences, an average three-day reduction in repair cycle time and significantly reduced travel distances for customers.

“We’re confident our heavy haulage network will see similar positive customer outcomes.

“These efforts are part of our broader focus on enriching the customer journey, using data and technology to deliver best practice and through strategic supplier excellence.“
