Well I do but none that can be used in polite society!!!.
So I’ve been with Bennetts for years, I’ve always checked the renewal price and it’s always been the better option for me. I know they get mixed reviews but I’ve never had a problem.
Last years premium £466 for my '16 plate Street 750, locked up like Fort Knox with tracker, alarm enough chain to sink the Titanic the works, this years renewal £946.00
Nah must be an error have 8yrs no claims so give them a call to notify them of their error.
Oh that’s correct it’s because you live in London (barely) It’s a good job I phoned as it was on automatic renewal. Young lady then went away to see what she could do, came back and with the same under writer Aviva the premium came back at £489.00. heh I says how’s that workout, how could they have come up with the first figure??? No answer
I’m not annoyed that the premium went up as such it always does but over double!!! Guess what I’m doing today:rage:
I test road a Fazer 8 the other day. 3 years no claims, living in Acton, in a garage. Wanted to buy, phoned up the insurance (Devitts) and was told they will not insure faired bikes above 600CC full stop. I phoned around and cheapest was around 2k a year.
Been looking at moving to Milton Keynes, as a matter of interest I asked what the cost would be in a driveway in the area I am looking at. £210.
Same thing happened with my van this year it was just under 50% increase ,justbreplied back with an e-mail asking if they think I am stupid,and cancelled the renewal:+1:sad to say that a huge percent of the population do appear stupid or have more money than sense and don’t even check it.
On another note same sort of thing happened with my aa cover,some how it got to £159 a year when I new it should be around 80,rang them up and they said oh yea there has been a slight increase every year,been with them 19 years told them I wasn’t happy blah blah they credited me 60 quid and put yearly fee back to £79
I’ve been with Carole Nash for around 5 years now - live in NW London, and they’re happy to quote on things, and it’s been quite reasonable.
Caveat - it’s garaged, and an 02 Ninja…so not the newest of bikes!
Having said that, I did a test ride for the H2 SXSE a few months ago, and doing a quick insurance check at the dealer gave me a quote around £1400 or so (fully comp).
It’s all very silly. My insurance last year for 2 bikes (04 600 Hornet & 16 Street Triple R) was £450. Another Insurer (Bikesure) who I used to be with wrote and promised to beat any other price so I asked them for a quote. Including a change of bike, 17 Street Triple R 765 and they wanted £1500. Be Moto my existing lot said £480. So I stayed with them. Bikesure are jokers I left them because they could not get anything right.
