They then said if I got a cheaper quote they would beat it by 10%. I hate that - they should give me their best price straight off!
Problem these days is that your premium has nothing to do with the value of your car - it's all to do with third party claims and compensation and blah-de-blah.
Check this out:
1999 145 QV worth £4,500 on a good day. Fully comp £527.00.
2002 156 JTD SW new, with loads of bits £22,000. Fully comp £519.00.
Both with esure, both me & my missus only (both 30 years old, reasonable records). One phone call, no messing about. Chris Knott were over £650 on the 145 and I couldn't face the hassle of ringing them on the 'Wagon.
All insurers just take your money and then don't want to give you any back. Gits.
