Auto Guardian Inconvenience Payment

We believe Auto Guardian helps reduce the risk of vehicle theft instantly – so much so that if your car gets stolen we'll give you £150!


1. How does it Work?

In order to receive the £150.00 inconvenience payment you will need to provide proof from a UK motor insurance provider that your vehicle has been classed as a total loss as a result of theft, within 30 days of written notification.  You will also be required to provide:

    - a copy of the Police Report stating that your vehicle was stolen from within the UK.
    - a copy of your MOT Certificate [if applicable]

      We will check with the DVLA to ascertain whether your vehicle is taxed.  

      2. Where do I send my proof of theft documentation to?

      All correspondence relating to the theft of your vehicle, in respect of you claiming the £150.00 inconvenience payment must be sent to the below address:

      3. When am I eligible to claim the payment to and from?

      The 12 month period will commence approximately 7 days after your Anti-Theft Etching Kit was dispatched from Auto Guardian. 

      A dispatch note is emailed to you from Auto Guardian following your order to confirm that your kit has been bespoke prepared and is in the process of being shipped.  For example:

      Auto Guardian dispatch email notification is sent to you on the 14th of the month.

      4. What if I ordered the Anti-Theft Etching Kit, but the vehicle belongs to a family member?

      Inconvenience payment is paid out as a result of the theft of the vehicle to which the Anti-Theft Etching Kit was applied. The vehicle registration or VIN number must match what we have on our system and that which is stated within documentation submitted when making a claim. 

      5. When will I receive my £150.00 inconvenience payment?

      We do not cover vehicles that have been seized, impounded or destroyed by the Police or other Government Services. 

      8. What happens if my claim for the £150.00 inconvenience payment is declined?

      Following the receipt of all of the required documentation as specified in Point 1 above, you will receive a confirmation letter from us to inform you as to whether your claim has been successful. If your claim is deemed to be unsuccessful we will write to you providing details as to why.
