Howdy all,
I think everyone knows how much i dislike the insurance company Endsleigh, and how they make me laugh everytime i call them!

Ok, so forget the problems at the beginning i had (remember them!?)...

2 weeks ago i get a letter saying about renewal...remember this thread!?

They wanted to know value of mods, why i dont know...as if they didnt know this, then surely i wasnt covered!?

Anyway, told them....

Insurance ran out at 12.01 last nite....no renewal quote from endsleigh...i need one as they will be cheap...and get others to beat the genuine quote...

I rang today, exaplained...

Ok Mr Perrin, so did you have the mods on last year?

WTF!, YES, we had a big issue about it, it was all declared, i payed more for it...

How can they not know this!?

I say, please quote me...now...

She puts me on hold...

Oh dear, its coming out at 2600.

2600!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!!

I payed 1100 last year on a rover 214, with the same mods....19, 1yrs ncb...

Im now 20, 2 yrs....same rover 214, same mods....2600...GO FIGURE!

Anyone think they dislike me!?


Im ready to kick up a fuss with them again now, just for the sheer fun and timewasting of it:)


2600, this little lady is in for a argument:)

Chriss knott ever so helpfully let me go through everything and then asked my age at the end...and said i need to be 25,

WTF, i swear they make this up to me.

I drive a 214, with some bodykit on, i live in retirementville where we dont even lock our doors, im paying in full, ive 2 yrs ncb, and still nobody wants to know!?

Just rang endsleigh back, they dont have any schemes for the amount of mods i have, they said because i added lowering in may last year, they cant cover me anymore...

2600 was their final price...obviously didnt want akward Mikey on the books!

Tesco were rather nice on the phone just, might go with them for being so nice!

Elephant were pretty tasty as well for some reason...
Retrieving an internet quote on the phone seems cheaper than just ringing them!?

Im not covered at the minute, cant go anywhere, needs sorting!

Any suggestions?

My mods are as follows...
Front splitter
Rear splitter
Rear spoiler
Side skirts
Front fogs
Colour coding
Interior seats/door cards
Alloys
Lowering springs

Not exactly a 5 litre turbo transplant is it?

There's adrian flux, but mixed reports on that one.
There was also a modded car specialist Green something, or Something Green. They gave me a really low quote on the zed but i can't remember the name or if they're any good.

Adrian flux was ok, but not special, i dont think my motor is powerful enough for them!?

They only seem to do decent quotes on fast cars ive noticed!


Only elephant in the running, not sure i want a 500quid excess though?
Quite cheap mind.

This does sound REALLY wrong mate... think you should go to trading standards and all that crap, i reckon you're being picked on...

I'm 23, got no ncb, got 9 points on my license, and I think i still get a better quote than you

Wouldn't have a leg to stand on i'm affraid. Previous insurance premiums have no baring on renewal or new premiums as they flucuate due to numerous factors. In fact although unfair they haven't done anything wrong, in terms of they've offered him a renewal price and it is his decision to take it or not, they are not forcing him.

Where he may have a case is in the fact that the insurance company did not inform him, via a renwal form, that his insurance was due to expire. I'm not certain but it may be the case the insurance companies are required to do this.

Yes but why is his insurance OVER doubled?! Even though he is older, and has more NCB!

There have to be an explaination...

Chris Knott give 10% discount to members of this forum.

Adrian Flux use the same underwriters as Chris Knott but Chris Knott beat them everytime on quotes and service.

It does sound like you're being screwed over Mike. Try doing a quote under your name but a different address.

Looks like Elephant might be gaining a new customer in a few minutes......

:)

Certainly makes a difference when the mother gets added onto my name:)

About £100 difference!

I did a quote on elephant for a coupe turbo and they wanted over £3k :(

Probably cos of the points on my license and no ncb...
