Insurance policies from insurethebox rely on telematics technology to help us give our customers an accurate quote. Once you have taken out a policy with us at insurethebox, we will need to arrange a time and place to fit a black box, sometimes referred to as a telematics box, into your car. It is easy to do, and won’t take up any room in your car. Plus, we come to you to fit it whether you are at home or at work.

The box needs to be fitted within 14 days of you buying the policy. Unfortunately, if you are not available for us to fit the box during this period, then we reserve the right to cancel your policy.

We understand that you may have some questions about the process of fitting a telematics box to your car. Below are some of our frequently asked questions about how we do the fittings, and what to expect in the few days after taking out a policy with us.
