    Insurance Theft Claim

    Insurance Co rang me today regarding the theft of my car, (see stolen Audi S4 in new members area)
    they have made an appointment to phone me back tommorrow at a specified time, I have read on other forums that these phone calls are recorded and monitored with a lie detector machine, any one else heard of this.
    I was hoping an assessor would call in person so they could see the exact situation in which the car was taken.

    Will report back with any news as a recieve it.

    Make it clear that it was impossible to do the job you were doing /without/ having the engine running and the door open.

    if they do pay out
    expect to loose a year plus this years no claims
    id say around a 10% increse on renew and yes it will affect all your cars in your name

    i say 10% as my last 2 claims last year went up about 11% cos of the claims

    Lose 2 years NCB and +30% onto your premium for the next 5 years seems to be the standard. Your other policies will only be effected come renewal time, if they are in your name.

    I don't know why insurance companies hikes your premium up when you make a claim, it's not like you have a choice when your car is stolen!? Have you made a claim in the last 5 years sir? Yes - ok +30% or whatever it is!(unless it's different for a theft of a vehicle.)
