As a taxi owner, you face the same risks as any other person who own a vehicle, but with one major difference. For you, these risks are a full time concern because your taxi is always on the road. Other car owners have the option of parking their cars once they arrive at their destination. For you, that is not an option because your taxi should be on the road as much as possible, to make money. The risks you face may be classified as follows.
The risk of loss can occur in in two ways. In the first case, your car may be involved in a serious accident or is lost to spontaneous fire. The insurance company may then decide to write off the car. This usually happens if the cost of repairs exceeds half the value of the car.
If you have the NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance, then the insurance company will compensate you for the loss.
In the second case, you can also lose your car through theft. Theft can occur from where you have packed your car in your absence, or can also occur as a result of a carjacking incidence. If such a loss occurs, your insurer will compensate for the loss if you have the NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance policy.
The NEXT Comprehensive PSV car Insurance covers you from costs that arise from expenses you would incur when your car in involved in an accident and requires repairs. In this case, the insurance company will foot the cost of repairs subject to any excess. Car parts of new cars are quite expensive. Damages that can lead to high repair expenses include breaking you front lights in a collision, damaging your radiator, or bending the bonnet.
As a taxi, your car is constantly on the road and may be hit, scratched, or may itself cause an accident leading to damages. Having our cover is the best way of making sure you are covered from the risks associated with damage to the car.
The third class of risks that you need to insure yourself against using the NEXT Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy is third party risks. In this case, you are required to pay for any damages your taxi causes to other road users. This includes injuries (or even death) of persons who are involved in an accident caused by your car. It also includes any damage to other people’s property ranging from other cars, to roadside furniture, as well as private property such as fences, gates and barriers. NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance will cover you from all third party liabilities that your taxi is exposed to.
When an accident occurs and you (or your driver) is personally injured, then you will be shielded from some of the costs of healthcare. The NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance has a token personal accident benefit that may take care of some of the costs associated with hospitalization.
Every insurance policy usually has very specific risks included in the coverage. Our’s is no exception. Here are the specific risks you are covered from when you buy this policy.
You are covered from the cost associated with repairs arising from an accidental collision with another vehicle or object, and overturning. This means that your policy will take care of any costs arising from these events, whether a total loss, or partial damage.
In the event a fire starts out accidentally in your car, your insurance policy will come in to handle the resulting liabilities. Fires in cars can arise from faulty parts, leakages in the fuel systems, or electrical malfunction. As you are aware, cars have many flammable fluids in them including fuel (petrol or diesel), transmission fluid and power steering fluid. All these can ignite leading to a fire. Similarly, electrical sparking can also start fires in your car.
This is straight forward just as stated. If your car is stolen, your insurer will compensate you-period. However, depending on certain factors the amount of compensation will vary. These factors include whether your car had an antitheft device or not (such as immobilizers and cut out systems), whether it had a car alarm or not, and whether it had an active tracking unit or not.
In some cases, your car may suffer from malicious damage from other persons. A very common example is someone reversing into your car in a parking lot causing damage, and then taking off. It can however include people who deliberately and maliciously break car parts such as the windshield, front and indicator lights, or if they dent the car’s body. These risks are covered under the NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance Policy.
In politically charged countries like Kenya, riots and strikes can occur (and they often do) with short or no notice to you. As a result, your taxi may be damaged or destroyed by the actions of the people on strike. The NEXT Comprehensive Car insurance policy ensures you are covered from this risk.
In the event that an accident involving your car occurs is serious and causes death or injury to passengers in the car, you will be compensated for any claims related to this accident made against you by the NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance.
In some cases, your taxi may hit and injure or cause the death of a third party such as pedestrians and occupants of other cars. In Kenya, pedestrians account for the largest number of fatalities on Kenyan roads. As such, having an insurance policy against such risks is a wise decision. The NEXT Comprehensive PSV Motor Insurance Kenya is one such policy.
In case your car damages other people’s property, be it their cars or other property near the road, you will be covered by the NEXT Comprehensive Motor PSV Insurance Policy.
The cost of PSV insurance in Kenya is influenced by various items. These include the nature of use of the SV, the age of the car, age of the drivers and the claims history. In addition to these parameters, NEXT PSV insurance uses algorithms to determine more discounts for PSV owners. Here is a detailed look at these parameters.
There are various classes of PSVs in Kenya, each with their own unique risks. PSVs such as matatus and buses operate on designated routes and carry large number of fare paying passengers. At the moment, NEXT does not insure these types of PSVs. There are Taxi cabs which also form part of the PSVs in use in Kenya. Cabs are typically driven by a designated driver and may operate from designated places to any destination a client may require. Apart from these, there are also cars for hire, which are also classified as PSVs. In this case, the clients higher the car for their use and may or may not require a chauffeur. The risk profiles of these PSVs affect the pricing of the premiums.
The age of a car is a common metric used in the calculation of insurance premiums. In this case, older cars, due to lower value, attract lower premiums as opposed to newer cars. The age of the car does not always have the same impact on the premium of the car even if they are the same model and were built in the same year. In some instances the mechanical condition (state of maintenance) of the car may play a greater role
Cars driven by older and also by more experienced drives attract lower premiums. In his case, the calculation of premiums takes into account the experience of the driver. More experienced drivers are less likely to cause accidents and hence they attract lower premiums
The claims history of a car also affects its cost of premiums. This means that if the owner of the car has recently made a claim on it, then the car will attract full premiums. It is advisable therefore not to make frivolous claims on your motor insurance because it makes premiums more expensive in subsequent years.
The process of making a claim against your NEXT Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy has the following steps.
Once an event has occurred, assess the situation to see whether it is a minor issue that you can handle yourself or whether you need to involve your insurer. Some accidents may not be serious and may only constitute superficial scratches that a good buffing will solve. Others are such that the car is damaged and need to be towed from the scene.

The next step is to gather the information required to fill the claim form. You will need a police abstract form detailing what happened and may also assign blame.

If it is another motorist, get their contact details, the registration number of their car, their license number (take a photo of it if possible), their national ID number, and their insurance policy number. If you can, take photos of the accident scene.
