However, Tescos have just given me an amazing quote on an M3coupe, so will be switching to them in the near future.

Tescos have got to be the best, unbelieveably cheap, my quote this year from them was 980 quid, cheapest i can get elsewhere was 1520 quid from churchill, hic are also very good they quoted me 850 quid, but want it in 1 go, where as tescos will do installments

There is no universal best company. Some will be cheap for one person and not for others. Some will provide better service after an accident/claim. etc.

I'm with Liverpool Victoria and I like them a lot.

I would too, but only because it turns out my brother works there and not Direct Line as I thought!

I'm with Liverpool Victoria. I've had no problems from them so far, they always get the paperwork out quickly. When I phoned them up about my exhaust being changed, I had the new documents saying "Exhaust modifications" on them within a day or so.

Mod friendly, very competitive prices (for me anyway). Don't know what they are like in the event of a claim, and hopefully never will. :)

So far every company i've been with has been poor.

Thats

CIS and Thames City (Corinthian)



Liverpool Victoria are looking good so far. Very quick service.

Also Royal Sun Alliance as when one of their members hit me they were very efficient in sorting my problems out.

Norwich Union.
Have to disagree with NU

After I phoned them up lets just say the conversation was interesting..... Wont insure the car because of an engine mod (i.e. Charge Cooler) - so we proceede with quote anyway with out engine mod...

Norwich Union dumbCow "So what else has been done to the car?"
Me "Different Wheels, Same Size as standard"
NUDC "Lemme check if we can allow that"
Me "ok"
NUDC "Are they performance enhancing"
Me "Yeah, they have exhaust pipes coming outta them :rolleyes:"
NUDC " Blimy never heard of that, lemme check with the underwriters"
Me " hang on, I'm joking!!!"
NUDC "ok, so are they performance enhancing"
Me "Well..... no!"

*Thinks to meself - What is this person on!! Yeah my wheels give me over 300bhp :rolleyes:

To which after another 2 minutes of being on hold

NUDC "Are they alloys"
Me "I dont think we should proceed with this quote do you"
NUDC "Why not??"
Me "You know nothing about cars, GOODBYE"

Great first impression they made on me

I would never ever recommend the CIS, they never speak to each other and so never get anything done. If you have a non-fault accident with them, don't expect their claim asessors (the DAS) to be any better because they're not. Total waste of time & money.
