    Question Quinn Direct can't understand re-mapping! Sent me a form to fill in!

    I am currently with Quinn Direct Insurance.
    I am quite happy with them as there is no cause for complaint.

    However, recently I told them I would like to re-map my engine, so could they give me a new quote.
    The advisor put me on hold and then after chatting to a supervisor said that she'd have to send me out an "Engineer's Report Form" to fill in.

    I received the said form in the post the other day.

    Apparently I have to get an "approved" engineer/mechanic/garage to do a once over on my engine and then get them to explain in writing what a re-map is. Then I have to send this explanation to Quinn so that they re-do me a quote based on the engineers report.

    Lord have mercy! Why can't companies like Quinn (who are well-established) just quote me based on the expected bhp increase due to a remap? It's not that hard is it?

    Any else had similar probs? Or just general advice?

    I was with Quinn for my first year.
    I totalled my car promptly and they dealt with everythink very quickly and professionaly, i have no probs with them.

    Each insurance company has there own way of doing things ATEOTD.

    yer, dont tell them, void your warranty, **** it!. they will love you when you have an accident and they dont even have to pay out!

    they can find out if you have a remap if the want to.

    Yeah, i agree. I don't like to take unnecessary risks and i don't like to cover things up. I try to be straight. It's hard, but I try.

    I just thought it was an unusual thing for a company to do...?
    Don't they have enough experience to know what a remap is, and how to re-quote for that? Weird.
    Well, if they make things too complex for me i'll just take my business elsewhere.

    I might ring them again and see if I can get hold of a more knowledgable advisor
