Ok now, its time to renew my insurance on the A6, I put this car on my old policy I had with my old A4 cab, it didn't run out till 01 Aug, so I just switch the cars over and let the policy roll on, I did pay £130 to switch insurance from my old A4 cab 1.8t sport, to my A6 3.2 fsi Quattro. ok I thought. its a bigger lump in there so I can just about see why with all the admin fees and messing about £130 is not toooo bad.
But up comes renew time.... I do some quotes on the net, while waiting for my letter telling me my new price for my insurers to come. but instead I get one saying they have now stopped trading as netpig (my old one) and have been taken over by a company called Bridal insurance, and could I pleas phone them.
so I did........ WELL BUGGER ME. confused isn't the word, I got told a could insure my car for "AS LITTLE AS £1467...." wtf..
I said oh dear me, (honest) and said joking I should have kept my old a4 cab. " no your right to get the A6" I was told, "as the A4 cab would have cost you a lot more to insure???????
I told the NICE MAN on the phone I played an extra £130 to put this car on my policy, and asked why. "ERRRM, I DONT KNOW SIR" is what I got, can I have a refund then?, ERMMM NO, THAT COMPANY HAS STOPED TRADING, WE JUST TOOK OVER THE POLICYS FROM THEM"
NEEDLESS TO SAY, IDIDNT RENUE WITH THEM!!, instead I got a quote form good old compare the Market.com. £441.90p is a lot better, oh and I get a soft toy as well.
now I don't pretend to understand insurance but, I have had quotes with a price difference of over £1000. how can this be. its the same car the same driver and the same place I live, confused isn't the word.. ps confused wanted £982, just to let you know
