Was advised by insurers to extend policy for 14 days, by doing so their new scheme would be up and running and this years cover would then match their old cover. Chase and chase for quotes in writing from them to be advised 5 dayd before the extension expires that the scheme is not running yet, dont know when it will be and when it is the covers are not matched. Advised the seek cover elsewhere!
Not Good at all


On 09-May-2014 the supplier responded:
We do apologise for the inconvenience you have suffered this renewal. Unfortunately due to a change in risk appetite by your current insurers we were unable to offer renewal terms this year. We have secured alternative cover for you, but appreciate this is not at the same level you previously enjoyed.

I have had this Classic Motor trade policy for about 21 years now and this is the third buy out agency who have dealt with it.
I have dealt with various staff over the years and have always found them to be friendly and helpful.
Previously I had one person who mainly dealt with all queries with a DD number. That appears to have changed now and may be worth reconsidering.
I am very happy with the service.
Regards

I have had no problems getting in touch (rarely necessary) but I know that others have found they have to listen to a lot of talking before they actually get to talk to anyone. Also the £25 fee to change a vehicle has upset some of your customers.

Even though we had mistakenly been left off the renewals list, when I rang to sort it out, everything was put in place with no trouble or inconvenience to ourselves. They arranged for a two week extension on payment & couldn't have been more helpful.
