Chilling Reccomendation for you all :)

That time of year again

Currently with CKI paid just over 850 quid last year, their renewal price was 813 this time round (with another year NCB I thought that wasnt good enough).

Best 'mainstream' quote was from Directline @ 780pounds but with a larger excess - CKI would match it, but wouldnt beat it by 10% as advertised on their website, which tbh got my back up a bit.

However......... A-Plan Insurance have just sold me a policy @ 689quid, 400 total excess and including european cover and legal costs. Very very happy with that. A-Plan are a broker but the company they are using is called Market Study.

Unsurprsingly, but still rather annoyingly Adrian Flux were way off the mark - best quote from them was over 1400quid!!

So 2007JTDm Spider, 24yrs old, 3 yrs ncb, no convictions/accidents @ 689 pounds.

Give A-plan a try folks - especially all you new LE owners.

-1998 916 Spider 2.0TS Lusso-
H&S Corse stage 1.
CATCAMs stage 1 cams with Savali custom ECU remap.
305mm discs with 166 4-pot callipers.
Ragazzon exhaust mid section.
Biscione Racing 2x70mm rear section.
Polybush suspension.
17" Zender Siena wheels with 3mm rear spacers.
etc etc etc!

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

Hi,

I'm surprised we were so way off the mark for you on your quote.
Is it possible if i can relook into it for you?

Dan.

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

Hi Dan,

New policy is paid for now, but if you look in your system under my name I guess you can pull the details up. If you want to do that let me know and ill PM you.

Your chap at AF said that AIG was the best he could do at something just over 1400quid (figure escapes me now).

689 is a very good price, but your price is skyhigh - most mainstream insurers were coming in at the 900 mark, some less than that even.

TBH it was the same story last year at renewal time.

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

I phone Adrian Flux the other day to get a quote on my Alfa as my insurance runs out on the 9th.

I got quoted £900 for the same stuff as Direct Line want £650...

Just renewed with Admiral too, every time I have to check they actually have the car down as a GTA 3.2. Guess I am just getting old now

Yes please if i can have your surname and postcode i can look at it and see what the difference was.
Also if you don't mind putting in your pm what you got and the excess and who with it would be most appreciated.

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

As reference to my previous post Adrian Flux would like the opportunity to re look at your quote's if we're considerably higher then others. We have noticed lately that we have not been competitive and would like to look into why.

Hi Dan,

@ Adrian Flux:
Thank you for looking into this for us, with so many people posting that you are expensive, you had a right to know, secondly the whole point of insurance is to be competitive and I have always found AF to be that (This is why I invited you to AO in the first place.)

If you get no responses by Friday, please make a point of coming back here to say so.

@ Members with high quotes:
Although it would be too late to help you, please help AF to investigate the problem as others on this web site may benefit. Simply PM Dan your details or even just your telephone number so that he can contact you directly, it might be the easiest and most secure way to deal with each other.

Many thanks in advance...

Ian Bowles

Dan, thanks for getting that re-evaluated. The new quote was comparable to DL. As a result for your efforts and to hopefully maintain a relationship for future between AO and AF, have just purchased the policy for the car collecting tomorrow.

Thanks again!

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

Did you make any progress with mine Dan? Any obvious reasons for the 700pound price difference?

We're still looking into yours.
Did you take the other policy out?

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

Hi.
So sorry i have not got back to you before now.
We spoke to the underwriters and they have been able to get it reduced but no where near to your other quote.

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

Yes, thats what I expected.

So was there any reason for the massive gulf in prices, after all thats what this thread was about in the first place, or is it just the case of they dont want the business?

Thats what I was most interested in knowing, as these club affiliated schemes are good in theory, but I have to say not so great in practice

It's certainly not that we don't want your business far from it.
The insurer was not aware that we were not as close as the other companies. As a broker we get rates from the individual insurer but they are also with other brokers who might have even better rates with them hence why at times we are not competitive.
But we have spoken with them about it and are re-looking at the options.

Find Adrian Flux (£800+) and Chirs Knott (£848,-) to expensive. My old insurance broker got it down to £500+ from other well known insurance companies.

Re: Reccomendation for you all :)

I just got insured with esure, £420 with £0 XS, with their maximum cover for everything. No one would even get near to that quote, let alone the £297 with £250 XS. Give them a try if you need insurance. One thing I did find was that it was cheaper getting the insurance via a search on Cheap loans | mortgages | credit cards | home & car insurance - moneysupermarket.com than getting a direct quote from them.

Ironically, they're more expensive for me - going direct has been cheaper so far.
