Insurance renewal since Lockdown

Recommended Posts

Hi - Anyone else had their insurance due while we've been in lockdown ? Currently with Staveley Head and the new owners One Sure have decided to double it and then add a bit extra to the premium . Since the end of March I have only driven my personal car for about 10 miles to take a parcel to the drop off bin and everything else is locked up gathering dust and bird poo :angry:

I’ve just renewed mine and it actually came down for a change. Only downside is they’ve changed my password for the mid update app and I can’t get hold of anyone to find out what it is.

iv'e had that happen before, mid update quite often change every quarter especially if you have not logged in for a while, sounds daft but try this - they often use spring, summer, autumn,winter as passwords, try summer and you might get in.

unless your policy is cheap shoparound then

be careful the cover you get is comprehensive

ie social domestic

your own cars

etc

I'm not naming names, but theres some bloody big sharks out there

Years ago I was with a company and relocated from Derby to Haywards Heath and the insurer decided to increase my premium by 80% , when renewal came I was surprised that a certain company halfed my original Derby premium with better cover , why I shop around now
