breach of privacy

published

Watch out, had previously used right to drive and my details where kept on file. Right to drive then used my details and phone number to contact me about my son who had an accident. From what I have read about the privacy act, this is a clear breach of my privacy. I have not authorised this company to use my details for any other purpose other than the original claim.

They said “Branches across Australia” that’s not true - No branch for Canberra. Waste of my time to fill a long form.

Received a call that saying no branch in Canberra where it advertised “...branches across Australia...” and “car will be delivered to you”

all paths lead to a dead end

published

Endless hold listening to the same short psycho right to drive message , so decided to ring a local branch. I got redirected to the national queue and lost my original place where I had already spent 20 minutes on hold. So I decided to ring a 3rd branch and despite again I was herded like cattle into the national, overloaded network. I suggest answering the phones or putting pleasant music to listen to whilst on hold.

Hi Josh,
Thanks for responding. I am not going to pursue further with you. This is an executive management problem, not the over worked staff on the lowest wages problem.

Terrible customer service

published

Terrible customer service, no empathy was provided for my situation after my car was a total loss. I was treated like I was trying to do something dodgy by organising a loan car - after I was advised to call them by my insurance company - and then very much treated like I was unreasonable in seeking a loan car in the first place.
Avoid this company if at all possible.

I'm already without the use of my own vehicle. My insurer won't take my car (which has a preliminary assessment of total loss) until the assessor has completed valuation. I explained this to the supervisor, Jodie, to whom I spoke.

Pushy and rude

published

My details were given to Right2Drive by the smash repairer. I found them to be quite pushy, trying to convince me to arrange a car with them before my insurance had even confirmed the car was a write-off. They then sent multiple follow-up texts.
I spoke with them twice, but the details were different the 2nd time. In trying to clarify what was required the guy on the phone was quite rude, particularly given they contacted me first. Then he hung up on me.
I'd recommend google-ing 'not at fault car hire' before committing to anything with Right2Drive.

Constant harassment from this company. Appalling communications.

published

Keep sending me threats for a year now. Demanding payment for a no fault incident. Lose records of communications. Each letter has a different reply email. Disgusting intimidation and harassment.

Terrible place to use

published

Rang them up to get a car and had every information that I needed, name, address, phone, insurance company, etc etc but because I didn't have his rego number they refused to help me. Said his car might be unregistered but the claim had been approved by his insurance company, and I'm sure his insurance company is not going to help if it was unregistered, had the claim number and still refused to help me. Wouldn't recommend unless you've got half an hour to answer every question and then get told no.

NO Service In Canberra or local region

published

The best they could do was arrange a hire car miles away. It worked out cheaper for us to simply claim the cost of a hire car back from the other party directly with their insurer (NRMA in this case). This company would be OK if they actually could live up to their promises. The worst thing was that they got all our details and the third party information before telling us that. Very stupid and unnecessary process. I don't think you need them anyway. Most insurers will pay for a taxi or hire car if you ask them. Just try that first.

That's just words and you are not fixing the problem by simply being sorry. You should not advertise that you deliver cars to people if you don't deliver cars to people. Pretty simple really.

1k+ Fake reviews?

published

Most of these reviews appear to be fake. To see some real reviews set it oldest first, before they flooded it with fakes. This business is taking advantage of distressed people involved in car accidents, charging X5 times the correct price for car hire and increasing everybody's insurance premiums.

Useless

published

Our insurance said to call them for a replacement vehicle considering it wasn’t our fault. Three weeks still no car and don’t want one now. Absolutely useless. If I could give them a negative rating I would.

Disgusting behavior

published

If your drivers are anything like you run your business then totally disgusting! I was picking up my own personal car in a car park in Mascot and just witnessed the worst attitude and behavior in my life that your drivers (big stocky person, make) verbally abuse and intimidate a female in the car park. Your company should be ashamed of yourself. Everyone has a job to do but bullying and harassment of a female is not a part of anyone's job description, the male in question was accompanied by other members of his team who I also observed intimidating people in their vehicles. Some of them had a company logo which said your company name and another logo of a company called Tripz??

stay away

published

On the phone they appeared rude since the first approach (to be factual, the guy on the phone cut the conversation while you are speaking which is a total disrespect). They told me they will call me back but I got no news from them. They requested the not-at-fault party insurance claim number and are not interested if you don't have it. I recommend to stay away from such companies to avoid troubles. I found a lot of positive comments in this forum which is abnormal, probably themselves posting them.

Unprofessional

published

I was involved in an accident where the at fault driver didn't have Insurance, was referred to Right2Drive by the amazing Smash repairer and was told by Right2Drive they could only provide a car for 3-5 days, because of the circumstances. I received a confirmation email to get the car the next day at 1pm, so I rescheduled my work appointments and then at 11am on the day of pick up I was called and informed that in fact I was not eligible because they couldn't recoup the costs because the other driver didn't have insurance.

John C.asked

Got a hire car off you people on 1.1. 2020 after being in an accident. After giving the car back I received a fine in the mail dating 30.12 2019 . How do I go about getting out of the fine ? Plus at the time of the fine on the paperwork ( 5.10 am ) I was at work on the 30.12 2019 as I start work at 4am . Can you please help me ? Looking forward to your answer.

It is very hard to understand this post. If you got the hire car from Right2Drive on the 01.01.2020 and the fine was dated on the 30.12.2019, then the fine is not yours; unless the fine was under your car not the hire car. If any more issue with the fine, then I suggest you contact the people that issued the fine to you. Good Luck!

Hi Doreen,

Please do not stress about this. Right2Drive has a zero insurance excess which means you can drive our cars with peace of mind. Best thing to do would be to call the branch where you received the vehicle from. Or alternatively, if you would like, I can have our SA manager give you a call to talk you through what will happen next? If so, please email your contact details and any questions you may have to customercare@right2drive.com.au

Kind Regards, Josh

After another not at fault accident , I applied online with Right2Drive but have had no response after nearly four weeks.I received a reference number by return email so my application has gone through.Because I needed to get a rental car organised as soon as possible , I have gone through another company who have approved a car for me once my car goes into the panel beaters , very disappointed Right2Drive , I thought you were better than that.
