    Insurance Quote



    Hey Peeps,

    Just got off the phone to Elephant as me insurance is up for renewal.

    Since last year, i am now back in Kent (was as college in Southampton), and my license has been adorned wiv 6 points for speedin (copper jumped out of a bush )

    My new quote has risen from £1000 to £1850 !!!!!!

    How can a change of address and 6 pts bump up your premium by £850 !!!!!

    (Damn coppers, always gettin ya when you least expect it )

    Thats it, Rant over)

    Get some other quotes and talk to them in person and get the price down. My renewal price was £437 full comp with good lady on the policy too, but I thought na, that still too much and got ont the phone to them and now I paid £367, they added a renewal cost on my policy of £25 and waived it if I sytayed with them and also managed to get the best deal for me, so it pays to shop about and call then and barter like mad.
    Hey YOU See Oooour Reeegin Noooo ! Toss Yer Caber Here

    Time to shop around me thinks! Why not have a look at the comapnies that specialise in convicted drivers.. sounds harsh but I know cos I'm one of em! (dont ask lol) dunno if they will be able to help that much but might be worth a try - personally speakin I wouldnt go with elephant again as the f***ed me about too much in that past...anyway strayin off topic here but £650 seems about right for 6pts - 3pts ok as most ppl have them - but anymore than that and the price shoots up

    Def ring around mate....My insurance went from around £1000 up to £1600 and I hadn't changed a thing. I think they think they can leach more money out of you, because you may not be bothered to ring around.

    I'm with elephant now by the way and my current insurance is £800 with extras. They saved me a lot initially, but when I come to renew i'll def be ringing around.
