How much can I save ?
« on: April 19, 2016, 08:24:51 pm »
Just had my insurance renewal through and the price was £855 for my crate !!  :-[  (a little steep for something that does about 1000 miles a year) spoke to Footman James and they quoted me £303. Spoke to the insurers and the "managed" to bring the quote down to £300. Looked at both docs and the Footman James one includes euro breakdown cover, key care, agreed value with all mods declared. (In case anyone is bothered the base price is £113)

Round 2 starts tomorrow  ;D
More work to do.... Time to get my finger out then.

I hate how insurance quotes are basically a haggling game every year. Bunch of Highway robbers. That said, Admiral have done us ok the last few years for the 3 cars, and the premiums have always gone down, which has saved me the usual nonsense.

Well I have gone with Footman James and the total with European breakdown cover was £308. Rang flux and told them that I was going elsewhere and told them it took me to get a quote from another company for them to drop their price. I think they should have done that before, not keep increasing my premium.

Sent from my phone. Sorry for any mistakes
