Classic Car Insurance MORRIS MINOR CONVERTIBLE

Service:+

I find it difficult to properly complete your "feedback" for although I have no criticism of Footman James performance it was simply adequate as I made no real demands of it and if they were not good at arranging a renewal they should not be in business. I have to question the value of such a feedback format. This is not a criticism of FJ but of your form. Sorry

Footman James handled my renewal very well and then when I sold one of the cars on the day of renewal, they swapped over the insurance without any problem and refunded a small part of the premium. They have also been very prompt on sending out all the paperwork, including the revised cover.
