As time progresses, the objects start losing their value. The same thing happens with cars as well. The amount with which you purchase the vehicle will reduce significantly in due course. This is called the depreciation of the vehicle. And at the time of claim settlement, policyholders see deductions on the claim amount, making them somewhat discontent with their policy. However, if you can add SBI car insurance zero depreciation cover, you can avoid such a situation. SBI General Insurance, which offers this policy, will not deduct depreciation from the claim amount, thereby enriching your claim settlement experience with it. Maybe with elaboration, you could understand this vital concept of SBI car insurance policy better. Let’s begin!

How does the SBI Four Wheeler Insurance Zero Depreciation Add-on Cover Apply?

When SBI sets out to settle the claim, the depreciation amount is deducted from the claim amount. The more the age of your vehicle the less will be your claim amount. Zero depreciation of the vehicle is not included in the base policy. It can be purchased alongside your SBI comprehensive car Insurance policy or a standalone own damage policy of the insurer. So, if SBI four-wheeler insurance zero depreciation add-on cover is included in your car insurance policy, at the time of settling the claim, the insurer will not deduct the depreciation amount. You will get the whole amount for which you make a claim.
