We understand that getting involved in an accident is something that everyone of us dread.
No matter how well or skilled our driving may be, accidents do occur and we should be well equipped with the necessary knowledge to safeguard our own personal interest. In SINGAPORE, things are more straight forward and we just have to call our own respective insurance company to inform them and proceed down to their authorized reporting centers to make an car accident report and/or make a claim.
Things however start to get tricky when a Malaysian vehicle gets involved or your accident happened in Malaysia. It is usual practice for the Singaporean vehicle to claim their own insurance for the damage of their vehicle (regardless whether they are at fault or not).
This is mainly because claiming against insurance companies in Malaysia (third party damage claims) could be a long process (ranging from 1 to 2 years) and most workshops would not want to take that risk. But we can change that and help you make that accident report and make a claim now!
5 Steps to do when you get involved in an accident
These are 5 steps you should take when you get involved in an accident with a Malaysian vehicle IN or OUTSIDE of SINGAPORE.
- Take a photo of the car with the car plate (Preferably driver as well)

- Take screenshots of the Driver’s driving licence, Name, Genuine contact details (Give a missed call if necessary)
