Classic Car Insurance

I thankfully have yet never made a claim so I can only comment on my interaction with the company when re- insuring. My rating on re-insuring was not good as I was reminded by e-maii and by post so many times that it became annoying. I received my last e-mail reminder tha day after i had reinsured. The default title on all mail is ' Mr' which irks me more than it should and as I've received excessive mail in my opinion, I've been reminded how annoying it is a lot in the past month.
