Car insurance: Drivers 'should protect their suspension'

Wednesday, 04 February 2009

Motorists who do not want to have to claim on their car insurance for problems with their suspension have been advised to take preventative measures.

Car Parts Direct claimed the risk of damage has increased over recent times as a result of the rising number of speed bumps being built into British roads.

However, it pointed out drivers can take simple steps to protect their vehicles which could help them avoid having to make a motor insurance claim or pay for expensive repairs.

The company recommended fitting rubbers to the suspension coil springs.

It claimed most drivers should be able to do this themselves in about 20 minutes at a cost of around £35.

For vehicle owners who are unsure where to start, Car Parts Direct has uploaded an online video which demonstrates the procedure.

Mark Cornwall from the company said: "It appears speed bumps are here to stay.

"That's why we have taken action to reduce the risk of suspension damage."

In other news, Car Parts Direct recently warned people who drive vehicles which are not roadworthy may invalidate their motor insurance.
