carweb supplies services to a number of different companies operating in the insurance sector. Customers include motor insurers, insurance brokers and web based aggregators, various claims and other professional service providers to the industry.
Quality of the data insurers hold on their insured assets is a perennial problem and one that costs the industry a great deal in time and money as well as damaging customer confidence when it is proven to be wrong. carweb is ideally placed to address this problem in insurer’s private car and commercial motor portfolios. We do this by providing web based access to our built for purpose, unique database of all vehicles in the UK. The database is searched and a return provided normally within 0.1 seconds and across very high volumes of data. Insurers can chose from a long list of data fields and with confidence know they are getting the most granular data available about the vehicle just based on providing carweb with the Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM).
Insurers experience after adopting carweb’s data has been to improve accuracy in quotations; ensuring the right underwriting terms are applied more consistently on policies secured; the insured’s vehicle details are recorded more accurately in the policy records; the claims process is more effective and the portfolio details transmitted to the MID are more accurate.
carweb adopts a consultancy approach to each insurer to ensure we provide a tailored solution based on the insurers needs.

The road transport sector is a significant contributor to emissions of carbon and pollutants into the atmosphere. The motor industry is working hard to introduce more fuel efficient and cleaner vehicles, providing new options to individuals and fleet buyers. At the same time governments throughout Europe are increasing the pressure on their own procurers to take the “lifetime cost” of emissions into account when sourcing vehicles.
The demand for environmentally based services is therefore increasing rapidly and carweb can provide a range of services to the commercial and government sectors to respond to their “green agendas”. CarweB’s service is individually tailored and is offered either direct or through the customer’s chosen consultancy partner.
carweb has worked with GFleet on their green fleet audits, the Institute for Transport Studies University of Leeds, King’s College London Environmental Research Group and The Energy Savings Trust to power bespoke services to a number of organisations.
carweb can respond to companies auditing their fleets to demonstrate their green credentials ; helping companies make better environmental choices in the range of vehicles offered to their staff ; contribute to the reduction in the fuel costs incurred. For local and national government CarweB’s service offers support to decisions made under the Clean Vehicles Directive; supports Local Government Air Quality Management obligations and provides the capability to enforce differential car parking or congestion zone charges based on individual vehicle emissions.
