Advice on recovering credit hire costs in Belfast & Northern Ireland

Insurance companies regularly mount challenges to credit hire claims with a view to avoid, delay or minimise payments to credit hire companies on behalf of customers that have been involved in a road traffic accident. We understand how this can negatively impact your cashflow and waste valuable time that should be dedicated to furthering your business interests. Our clients benefit from our proactive approach which is focused on ensuring that hire charge recoveries are maximised.

Some of the ways in which we can help you include:

  • Deliver ongoing advice on decreasing the likelihood of not recovering hire charges from insurers.
  • Ensure compliance with consumer credit and consumer protection legislation.
  • Reviewing credit hire agreements and procedures.
  • Advise on the increasing use of “basic hire rate” evidence by insurers in an attempt to minimise the recovery of hire charges.   

We act on behalf of some of the UK and Ireland’s premier credit hire vehicle providers and have acted on their behalf in many notable credit hire claims cases including McAteer v Kirkpatrick NIQB 52 and Salt v Helley NIQB 69.

If you are a credit hire vehicle provider and struggle with retrieving payments from insurers, talk to us. We offer free no commitment initial consultations designed to help you identify if we are the right firm to meet your specific legal needs.
