    Talking Insurance quote

    Just had a phone call from Kwik Fit insurance, they had phoned me on friday for my details to give me a insurnance quote for the Fergmobile and was them just getting back to me. Now I know insurance is expensive but damn I was not expecting this.....









    Wait for it.....







    £33,000.00

    Yes thats right, 33 thousand pounds for one year only . The operator realised something was not right there so they are going to get back to me.

    33,000 - why don't they just say 'we don't want to insure you', rather than making up comedy figures like this.

    i used to work for them mate and it beats my record, we used to try and find the highest price we could - i got about £12k - anymore than that it wouldnt quote for me.

    and the cheapest.... £62 iirc. for a reliant robin, 60 year old priest from Wick (or something like that). about the only good fun i had working there.

    you going for that quote then?

    yup thats why Kwik Fit insurance have done so well. while all the other new companies struggle to get customers they can build up a huge client database by asking a few sneeky questions when you go into the garages.
