ATTENTION SHORT TERM INSURANCE BROKERS:
Please ensure that your clients are informed about the VESA Certificate as proof of a quality tested vehicle security device. Many consumers don`t read their policy wording and are in for a nasty surprise should they have a vehicle theft claim and should they not have complied with the Insurer`s requirements regarding anti-theft devices. VESA receives many calls from the public who confirm that they were never informed to obtain a VESA Certificate as proof of their vehicle`s compliance to the term "VESA Approved". The result is that their claim was either repudiated or had to pay a higher excess in the event of a vehicle theft claim. All VESA Members are obligated to issue VESA Certificates for ABS Approved products installed. Should you be in doubt, please call VESA on 011 315 3588 for assistance to verify that you have a VESA Certificate issued for your vehicle`s anti-theft device. Alternatively visit any of the VESA Members to inspect your vehicle to ensure that your vehicle complies with your short term insurance policy. Prevention is better than cure!
