So, just back from hols and in amongst the usual post holiday bills and junk mail is my insurance renewal for my 2002 Type-R EP3. My current insurer, Be Wiser, were chosen last year as they provided the cheapest insurance for my previous car ( Hyundai Coupe SE ) and a nominal sum was charged to change the policy when I bought the Type-R. So we're looking at around £240 for fully comp. Go on then, guess my renewal quote................................................. £417!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure that my forehead doesn't have a "****" tattoo on it! Two things I'd like to point out here. Firstly this company did exactly the same thing to my wife. Cheap first year on her Merc SL250 Sport, then more than double on the second year. They also took into account her 18 years of no claims on her company car ( which she no longer has ) but on the renewal wouldn't accept it, saying it was a special offer for the first year. Yeah right! Secondly, I'm not some 19 year old with my baseball cap on back to front with a cherry bomb exhaust and 30mm lowered shocks ( no offence if you are ) I'm 59 years old this November, have 9 years no claims on this policy, a clean licence and the car is absolutely standard. What's more I also own a 2002 Jaguar XKR 4.2 supercharged V8 which costs me under £187 a year fully comp. So what the fffff....... is going on? I see Be Wiser posters all over the place telling us how cheap they are. BE WARNED - DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY RENEW WITH THESE CROOKS!! I've renewed with Autonet, who also insure my truck, online, no fuss - £209 fully comp and I'm covered for driving to work and my wife driving as well.
