    bennetts bike insurance

    A warning .

    I recently changed my bike insurance to bennetts from MCE as they gave a cheaper quote . did all the necessary stuff on line paid over the premium , docs arrived thru e mail .I thought job done .

    I have been riding bikes and have had ins for over 30 years , and since the advent of the electronic ins data base and e mail etc etc , I have never had to send proof of NCD .

    out of the blue a snotty letter arrived from bennets asking for proof of NCD .to which I was slightly baffled .

    when I rang bennetts to discuss I was told I was in the 20 % they ask for proof , as I satated the obvious and coudnt do this ( old policy docs deleted ).

    I was told that if I didn't provide this within 7 days my policy would be cancelled , so I called MCE to resuest either they contact bennetts or e mail me proof of NCD .

    of wich I have had neither , a further threatening letter arrived on Saturday from bennetts officially informing me that my ins policy will be canned in 5 working days
    no iff s or buts

    what a bunch of cunts , its so easy for them to verify this them selves , theyre just being bloody minded and awkward for the sake of it .

    to cap it all I had a satisfaction survey emailed to me over the weekend fuckwitts .

    needles to say they will not get any more business form me .


    just be warned if this is how they treat new business imagine how awkward the may turn out to be in the course of making a claim
    .
    the saga is ongoing as I am about to call them ( if I can get thru - line always seem to be so busy ) bastards .

    They all do that mate,every time I've changed bikes or cars,your old insurance company have to supply your no claims details in a letter to you which you send on,feel for you though they are a bunch of wankers usually lol

    MCE should issue you with a letter or document showing no claims discount earned, its, as Blade has said, a normal request from a new insurer.

    that's just it MCE didn't send a document showing ncd details , and I have always switched insurer every year .
    and despite using the same insurers , mce bennetts etc etc . I have never had the request to prove ncd .
    maybe its me getting older and more impatient and getting more of the victor meldrew syndrome . hahaha.

    any way I still stand by my statement that insurers are ba*%ards .

    ps. looks like bennetts have repented the error of their ways and have resurrected my cover .
