I won’t bore the board with the ins and outs of the whole episode, but making demand after demand in a commercially aggressive tone is not something that sits well with me; neither is changing your policy terms and dressing it up as a minor part of the whole issue. Also, if you’re a broker, then act promptly and professionally. Getting the customer to do all the work, including 15 phone calls to them and only 1 call back is not good enough.
Bikesure have always been very competitive on price, but that’s only a draw when they act when needed. What’s worrying is I wasn’t even making a claim; I was simply informing them it was declared Cat C.
As I say, they won’t be getting a penny of my money again.
Bikesure called me back and through gritted teeth they apologized. They then said they’d give me £15 back. I told her that wouldn’t even cover my phone bill to them let alone anything else. She offered nothing else.
The apology alone is something I’ve never had from any insurance company when they’ve f-ed up, let alone money back. :w00t:
If you’re talking bad customer service, ebike cancelled my policy with no warning and no apology on two occasions.
You can’t speak to anyone there so communication was by email (not ideal).
The issue was seemingly over documents that they had not received (they need a copy of your licence plus any other certificates to validate your insurance).
I emailed one guy, explaining that I had sent all requested documentation and even scanned and sent the documents just in case. He said that they had been received and was all they needed and that the insurance was to be reinstated.
Nothing happened. Then some stupid c**t of a woman emailed saying that they hadn’t received my documentation and that was why the insurance was cancelled.
I copy and pasted the email conversation between the previous guy.
Nothing, except a standard response repeating herself.
They failed to act as a proper go between. They basically did nothing to help me communicate properly with my insurer, and were rude and obstructive along the way. Basically, they were ineffective and a hindrance. Unfortunately, my insurer wouldn’t speak directly with me, so it’s rock and hard place when your broker is pants.
Sounds worringly similar my issue with Bikesure. Well, a part of the issue anyway. They contradicted themselves with nearly every phone call. At one stage, I thought it may’ve been a wind-up. I was looking for the camera.
