The telematics box is a similar size to a mobile phone and is fitted neatly away in your car. It counts the miles you drive and feeds your driving information back to your insurer. Your insurer will tell you what they’re looking for to help you get a lower premium or any other bonus they can offer. In some instances it can really help if you’re in an accident, black box technology has even saved lives!
It depends very much on your vehicle, we would estimate that 30 minutes to one hour gives our engineers enough time to get the box installed.

We get your information over from your insurance team and we will contact you to make the appointment. On the day of your appointment, the engineer will come out to your agreed address and will start with pre-checks on the vehicle which will need a signature from the owner or person present for the install. The engineer will then proceed with the install after the install is complete the engineer will do a post check on the vehicle, again getting a signature afterwards. Your box is then installed and you’re ready to go.
Our engineers work Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm. We also have limited availability on weekends between 8am-5pm, although a weekend appointment cannot be guaranteed.

The box has to stay in your vehicle for the full period of your insurance policy.
In most cases the box is simply deactivated and becomes obsolete, so we don’t have to remove anything. If you would like your box removing then please speak with your policy team, who will then let us know to make an appointment with you to remove the box.
