The things you do when bored, well this is one of them.

Call Norwich Union:

NU - Hello, Norwich union insurance, Debbie speaking, how can I help?
Me - Hi, I'd like you to quote me happy!
Debbie - (veiled "I haven't heard that 100 times today snigger"), certainly Sir, can i take your name please?
Me - it's green, and it's a hatchback!
Debbie - yes Sir, I will need more details.........
Me interrupting - Sorry, i said it's green and it's a hatchback! go for it and QUOTE ME HAPPY!
Debbie - Sir, are you seriously after a quote today?
Me - Yes, for a green hatchback
Debbie - Hangs up

Oh well, kept me busy for 2 minutes.

They won't insure me at all! Not even a quote. They go all quiet then say 'err...We'll have to phone you back' but never do.

Only ever made 2 claims on my insurance for burglaries over 10 years ago. Never made any claim on motor insurance.

Funny that all the big players seem reluctant to insure me and my car, but the smaller independents give me great deals.

More than : 3rd party, fire and theft, fcuk all else : 816 quid!!!!
Yes Car insurance : Fully comp, free breakdown rec and journey completion, homestart, courtesy car for 2 weeks legal aid etc; etc, 226 quid. And that with only one years no claims, as I havent had my 'own' car for a few years

Fuck 'em. There not spending my money on dreary facile adverts.

it disgusts me how most of the main insurance providers will not cover Northern Ireland for some reason. i am now paying about £400 more for the same car as last year when i was living in England. Arrse!!!!!!

AA sent me a renewal notice - 'Gosh, thats a bit steep' methinks.

Ring round getting a few other offers, then I think to ring the AA and pretend to be a new customer. I was surprised when they offered me a £100 less than the renewal letter - but not as surprised as the woman selling it was when I told her. She spouted some guff about not understanding how that could happen, I told her that it was them expecting folks to just sign the Direct Debit and send it back.

Still went with them though. Just goes to show - ALWAYS ring round, EVERY year and don't just assume they are giving you the best offer.

Top man that Clarkson I reckon he would have made a good squaddie

Clarkson is the man, I reakon he deserves his own thread. Everyone either loves him or hates him.

Wonder who did insure that Bugatti for that journey knowing Jeremys passion for breaking the speed limit.

The only problem you will encounter is if you need to make a claim on your policy as a worse case scenario would see the claim invalidated because of non-disclosure. Remember if an insurance company can get out of paying a claim they will. If it is an SP50 or below the premium loading won't be too severe. as to the loggie'scomment this is too true- a new quote premium is ALWAYS cheaper than an existing policy. A quick cheat is to get a new quote at renewal with anyone and cancel after 14 days free of charge. You are then "legall" entitled to get acheaper quote from your existing provider a take on a new policy. :wink:

If you haven't seen the advert then you won't see the point, if you have then I think you and I have a slightly different sense of humour.

Got a newer car with a bigger engine (R reg mondeo 1.6, lowish mileage) and got an even more comprehensive quote from the Post Office for £280 (£50 cashback in 6 months)

Norwich Union saved me a third on my insurance premium. To project the right image to my customers, I drive a large Merc (in the style of Dave Starsky :oops: ) last year I managed to come off the worst in an altercation with a scaffolders flatbed, my rear nearside wing was thoroughly knackered. There was no way I was about to put my hand in my pocket for the 6k repair bill, so I rang Directline, told them that someone had backed into me while the car was left unattended, and they sorted it all out. Alls fine at this point.
When I went to renew my policy later in the year, the premium had leapt up by a third, I tried Norwich Union, and they were able to match my previous years premium, thus saving me 600 quid. Needless to say, I was very happy.

Is it maybe to do with the fact that the local population take to the street with guns and petrol bombs; burning out vehicles; when every they feel like it :D
