“I didnt expect a barrage of phone calls to follow my request for quotes from enthusiastic callers needing 'more information' before they could provide a 'sensational figure'.
I NEVER buy over the phone from 'blind' callers !! I much prefer to receive e-mail quotes which I can compare in the calm of my home rather than be pressurised to buy now 'at a special price which wont be available tomorrow' !!!! I wont be using this website again.”
“Would be nice if you could just do an online quote and buy online rather then 6 or more people keep ringing you up and keep repeating yourself over and over for the best price , we haven't got the time to keep repeating ourselves. I just want a quote -online - buy simple”
“expected to receive quotes after providing all appropriate details. Instead, only one caller provided a quote, the others wanted all the details again. Pointless waste of my time. Not for me thank you”
“thought this would be an easy way to receive quotes only had three quotes one kept me on the phone for 28 mins, and all three quotes where far too dear???. Would of been so much quicker to phone round companies for qoutes.”
Why would I have to repeat all the details that I'd already input online?
Very tedious and annoying as I don't have 20 - 30 minutes to spare during
the day to repeat stuff that I have already input.
“i had to go through all my details again with each individual broker who rang up, i thought the idea was you enter your details once and they can then quote you on the details given, absolute waste of time.”
“I had hoards of insurers calling me within minutes.... which was ok in itself as I was after insurance. What I wasn't impressed with was that they sold my data to other types of companies just as quickly... Almost instantly I also started receiving lots of PPI/Sky/Mobile phone/AA also which I was not happy to receive. It could have just been chance it coincided with my insurance request...but I suspect not. Be prepared if you do use them...”
“11 phone calls over the following day during my work which was a little unhelpful. (and one the following day while writing this review!)
Was really looking for e-mail quotes so I could look at them in my own time and take my time considering them.
If you are looking to speak to someone by phone(potentially lots of people) then this is the place to go (although I'd be wary that you will now be getting calls forever from people trying to sell you things) but stay clear if your looking for a more considerate approach to gaining quotes. (e.g. e-mail quotes)”
“Having filled all my details in online, I got a time wasting phone call from a company asking for all the same details again. I did get one quote without a phone call but that only covered part of what I needed and when I requested fuller information so I could do a price comparison, I got an off-hand remark that breakdown recovery "started from £65", so useless.”
