Our Philosophy


Without frontiers

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.


Our History


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.
