MAZDA, TOYOTA

If a Mazda / Toyota vehicle has suffered structural damage, as reported by Toyota / Mazda, or their representatives, this is treated as “total loss” and the vehicle will be scrapped without recovering the remaining parts. In this case, the carrier will be liable for compensation of 100% of the car’s value. Mazda / Toyota has sole authority to determine whether the damaged vehicle can be repaired to the new vehicle standard, the used vehicle standard (substandard) or whether it must be scrapped.

If a vehicle that has been damaged during the service can be repaired, but can no longer be considered as being in its original condition by the Toyota / Mazda inspector, the carrier will be charged 20% of the vehicle’s net value + repair cost.

The damage is classified according to the standard of Mazda, Toyota guidelines.


STELLANTIS (FIAT, LANCIA, JEEP)

The driver’s signature on the damage report implies acceptance of liability for the damage.

If a damage report is obtained by the driver during loading, it must be sent to the Loss Adjustment Department: within 10 days from the date of unloading.

The damage report from loading cannot be shown during unloading. The damage report found in a vehicle at the loading yard is not valid, unless it has been transcribed to our transport stage.

In the case of significant damage or structural damage, the vehicle may be qualified by the customer for the VAM procedure, i.e. the vehicle cannot be sold as new after repair, and cannot be considered a total loss (the carrier covers the total value of the vehicle).

 

If the vehicle cannot be sold as new after repairs and the carrier wishes to purchase the vehicle previously repaired by the FCA, the carrier is obliged to pay to the FCA all charges related to the repair of the vehicle. The total purchase value will be the sum of the cost of repairing the damage added to the value of the vehicle’s price (the source invoice is not provided by the customer), including the cost of transport and technical expertise.

Where:

– catalogue price – minus 30% for vehicles for which the time interval between placing on the market and the date of the declaration of sale to the highest bidder exceeds 24 months

– catalogue price – minus 15% for vehicles for which the time interval between placing on the market and the date of declaration of sale to the highest bidder does not exceed 24 months

The carrier may exercise its right of preemption or cover the value of the compensation: devaluation + reduction in value due to loss of warranty + value of repair of the damage + cost of transport to the parking yard + cost of technical expertise.

Whereby:

– devaluation

28% of the catalogue value (value of the vehicle for the end customer in the “keys in hand” package with an estimate as at the date of the damage).

– reduction in value due to loss of warranty

– 20% of the catalogue value in the event of total loss of warranty

– 10% of the catalogue value in the event of partial loss of warranty

If a vehicle that has been damaged during service, in a way that makes it impossible to sell it as new after the decision of the Fiat, Lancia or Jeep dealer with the approval of Stellantis, then the vehicle will be collected from the dealer at the expense of the carrier responsible for the damage, transported to the FCA Sales Centre and sold at the best possible price in its damaged condition. The cost of the loss of commercial value will be charged to the carrier responsible for the damage.

In accordance with the your requirements, each carrier should have “All Risk” insurance for hail damage.
