With regards to renewing a policy, as a broker we offer the insurance provider's renewal quotation on an automatic basis. However, if contacted by the client, we can then access our panel of insurers to search for more appropriate cover.
I hope the above helps to explain why this takes place but if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.
“Offered a good price but be warned, the administration fees are a little high compared to other insurers I have used.
I also sold my motorbike part way through the policy and the cost to cancel was nothing short of extortion. Not only was there a high exit fee, but they would also claim 25% of any refund due to you, as well. In the end I got a new bike and just had to pay a crazy admin fee to swap bikes.
I was also harassed at the start of the policy, I bought online, provided NCB proof via email yet would receive around 5 missed calls per day for at least two weeks - I couldn't answer due to my working commitments, then I got a voicemail saying they had cancelled my policy. Eventually had to make time to call, then they reinstated my policy after me basically giving them everything I already had online. Felt like they were looking for an opportunity to make the policy more expensive somehow.
“Just really expensive to change any information in insurance when you don't even get a paper copy of insurance.and no mircat toy....not to mention compare the marker.com displayed cheaper car insurance for me in same day so got ripped off for neatly £50...”
