Got a provisional quote back based on the info provided on line. It looks very attractive £160 less that the CKI quote). Mrs SR & I will give them a call later.

The quote from AF is now with CKI to see what they can do to beat it. At this rate, we'll get it for free

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

Had a similar experience - was quoted an uplift of £300 by CKI when I advised them I was getting the car modded. Got an excellent quote from AF, which when I advised CKI I was taking, they agreed to match.
So thanks to AF I am now paying just £10 more per year for a modded GTA, which seems a bit unfair on Adrian Flux!

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

Interesting feedback. I've been with CKI since they took over the AROC scheme and was interested to see that they turned out expensive compared to AF through AO. I saw that CKI said they would beat any lower offer, so it's good they honoured that, but it also shows bad practice that they were so much more expensive (especially through the AROC scheme). I think I would feel a bit bad about getting such a good quote from AF and then giving the business to CKI when it appears they have not done their job well. I'll see what happens when my renewal comes up (which is not for a while yet) and see how they compare. I'll also see how I feel about giving the business to CKI if they overquote me to start with.....

Cheers,

Nigel

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

CKI have agreed to beat the quote (by £2 ) and waive the credit card fee Now need to look closley at the small print and see what's what!

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

I did feel bad about not taking the quote from AF, but the prospect of all the copies of paperwork that is required by the insurers to move insurance, plus the breakdown cover policy that is also with CKI, made my conscience a little easier to live with.
If AF are reading this, why can't reputable insurers have reciprocal agreements to electronically transfer the paperwork?

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

Got the papaerwork through from CKI and it's a mess; full of contradictions Just tried to call them and they shut at 5 Looks like AF will win our business as they are open until 7, and Saturday 'till 5

AF use Highway Choice & CKI Equity Red Star.

If only the document swap was easier!!!!

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

Update. Stayed with CKI in the end. They matched the AF quote and waived the credit card fee Company is now Equity Red Star. Switched from Zurich. Less hassle as didn't have to prove NCB, alarm system etc. again. End result (mainly thanks to AF) is £160 less to pay

AF have better opening hours and were excellent on the phone / email though (better that CKI by a mile).

Thanks for the update. Will have to see how things pan out when I renew mine (not until next year though).

Re: Just had our AROC CKI quote.........

Insurance is mad - last year CKI quoted me £660 renewal with Equity Red Star. I went to confused.com and got a quote for £400 with .... Equity Red Star. Something to do with new business discount. Always found CKI to be helpful and always try them at renewal though.
