The transport of passengers and goods does not stop at national borders. This applies not only for Europe but worldwide. Being one of the largest service providers for international claims handling, AVUS represents your interests. Across all national and cultural borders. With commitment and expertise. And with utmost loyalty.
After the Second World War Josef Pscheidl (1921-2007) founded a company which was specialized in transportation of goods between the occupation zones in Austria. The transport company grew rapidly. However, frequent road traffic accidents resulted in significant losses. The insurance cover sums were simply too low. Other transport companies had to face the same situation. Josef Pscheidl saw this market niche and founded the „Allgemeine Versicherungs-, Unfall- und Schadensberatungsbüro“, or „AVUS“, in 1960. As the motorization in Europe advanced he started together with his son Dr. Dieter Pscheidl to create an international network which more and more concentrated on cross-border claims handling. Already by the end of the 1960-ies several large insurance companies entrusted their international claims to AVUS. The business model proved itself in the long run. In the following decades the network was expanded all over Europe and beyond.
At AVUS, we strive to provide our high-quality services in a manner that minimizes our potential impact on the environment. In our operations and decision-making, we comply with all relevant environmental regulations and strive to avoid pollution. We apply best environmental practices in everything we do as we want to help leave an intact environment for future generations.
We are convinced that environmental protection cannot be viewed and solved in isolation. There are three pillars that must be taken into account: Ecology, Economy and Sociology. Thus, when we address environmental protection issues, we also consider the social and societal impact of our actions as well as the economic implications.
AVUS aims to be a role model by encouraging other companies and people to act in an environmentally conscious and socially responsible manner.
our policy is therefore:
