A new app called CarModify Australia aims to help Australians with car modifications get started.
The app, which was launched this week by CarModize Australia, aims to provide a quick, simple, and affordable way to access car mods.
Its launch comes after Australia introduced a number of new car insurance policies in January.
According to the Insurance Council of Australia, the new policy is aimed at preventing the use of car insurance for vehicles that have been modified to increase the amount of emissions or improve performance.
The insurance company said the policy will cover up to $200,000 in car repairs and replacement costs.
“The new policy has been developed as a means of encouraging car owners to upgrade their vehicles to meet Australia’s emission standards,” said Paul Sturt, senior vice president of insurance policy at the Insurance Corporation of Australia.
A new policy means the Insurance Institute of Australia will no longer cover the cost of modifications for owners who choose to pay for them themselves.
The app also aims to encourage car owners who have purchased a new car to check out the insurance benefits that they can receive.
Some of the most popular car modifications include a rear wing replacement, new air intakes, a rear bumper replacement, a front bumper replacement and a rear deck lift.
Many Australian car owners may not be aware of the cost or benefits of their modifications, and the Insurance Association of Australia warns against paying for them.
This includes vehicles with rear wing intakes that need to be replaced, and a car that needs to be rebuilt with a new rear bumper.
“Some modifications may not affect the insurance policy in the same way that the front bumper will not,” said Lisa Thompson, the Insurance Services representative for the Insurance Industry Association of Australasia.
“There is a cost to the owner and there are risks to the environment,” she said.
“These are all things we want to make sure we’re making sure that our customers are aware of.”
CarModify will have a number on its website that people can use to check on the costs of modifications and other aspects of the insurance industry.
In the United States, a new insurance policy is available to people who purchase a vehicle and have a repair or modification done.
New car insurance is also being introduced in Australia, with the introduction of a new policy from the insurance provider in April.
The Insurance Council is offering to cover up for up to two years of car repair costs for those with modifications.
