Online Car Inspection

When you’re busy hustling, you don’t have time to bother with the small stuff. Like taking your car for an inspection when you take out car insurance – what a drag. 

That’s why, no matter what type of Car Insurance you have with us, you don’t need to take time out just to visit a vehicle inspection centre – you can do your own inspection from wherever it suits you.


Online Car Inspection


How our online car inspection tool works


All you need is a cellphone that takes decent photos, an internet connection, and about 15 minutes’ free time, and you can complete your own car inspection. Here’s how it works: 


Step 1


If you haven’t yet done so, register a Budget Insurance online profile using your personal and policy details. 


Step 2 


Once you’ve registered and are logged in to your profile, navigate to the section where you can manage your profile. From there, go to the car inspection page. 


Step 3


Simply follow our easy-to-understand guide through the process. You’ll be asked to upload photos of your car from different angles. Make sure the photos are clear. The best time to take them is during daylight so we can see your car clearly. While you’re at it, why not show off your wheels by giving your car a good clean before its photoshoot?


Step 4


You’ll be asked to make a note of any existing damage to your car and capture additional details like the mileage, any after-market car accessories you may have installed, and the details of your sound system. 


Step 5 


That’s it! You’ve officially completed your own car inspection. 


When to use our online car inspection tool


Keen to try out the Budget online car inspection process already? There are two times when you may need to do it.

When you take out Car Insurance with us, we need to know what kind of condition your car is in so we can be sure we’ve given you the right cover. You need to complete the inspection in order for your cover to be fully active, and you’ll need to do this within a specific time after taking out insurance with us.

When you claim on your Budget Car Insurance, depending on what you’re claiming for, you may need to complete another vehicle self-inspection. If you were in an accident, major or minor, we need to see the damage and circumstances of the accident so we can finalise your claim. 


Why use our online car inspection tool


We’re all about making car insurance affordable and helping you stay in budget. By completing your own vehicle inspection, you don’t need to use up your limited fuel budget by driving to an inspection centre. It’s also super easy to do, so there’s no reason to have someone else do it on your behalf.

If you haven’t yet completed your online car self-inspection, log in to your profile and follow the prompts. Get a car insurance quote from Budget today! Affordable insurance, 'cos you can't afford not to!
