  • Car insurance forms!!!

    I just tried to fill in the confused form!!!

    It gives a short list of what youl need before you start to fill things in, then it asks questions that I have no idea to the answer of!!!!
    So annoying, I was on the phone ot my dad who was relaying info to me.

    Only good thing to come out of it is that most quotes where around £250 rather than the £400 I have been already quoted.

    Japanese Import

    We drive, or at least he drives, a Toyota Lucida which was imported secong hand from Osaka.

    When we first got it 4 or 5 years ago, it was a nightmare to get cheap insurance for imports. We ended up with Tesco car insurance which is Direct line (odd cos we were with DL and they said they didn't insure imports so we changed to Tesco....). We got the cheapest quote by phoning around and asking al the companies if they would price match or beat the other companies. Tesco's were great, saving us over £400!

    We 'bought' a brand new car this Monday just gone. It's a Vauxhall Zafira, and comes fully insured etc, because Gary bought it with his DLA Mobility allowance. We don't have to service it or anything. It won't really belong to us, it's almost a hire agreement over three years. At the end of the three years you get the option to buy the car you had, or you just pick another brand new one.

    The Toyota has been a great car, but it's 13 yrs old now, and having a new reliable car is going to be a huge relief...Gary has driven to Birmingham in our Toyota today. I'm waiting for him to phone me to say he got there safely....and tomorrow we have to drive it to Exeter to talk Craft Fairs with ECC....fingers crossed!

      I was with Direct line for 6 years, always paid direct debit and couldn't be bothered to shop around. This year i bothered and saved myself 200.00.
      Think i will bother a lot more in future!!!

      We have a small collection of military vehicles which cost about £70.00 a year all in, don't need taxed due to the age (WW2 and 1950's) and the Reo which is a 7ton lorry dosn't even need an MOT how daft is that???

        Love 1950's/60's cars.

        Its amazing the difference in quotes.Makes me wonder how some places can dare be so cheeky to charge so much in comparison.

          I always go through the same ins broker, and they find the best company for me, but then they charge £20 for doing that. After hearing how much you have saved I'll phone around and see if I can get it cheaper.

            We did the same thing. We need to tighten the purse strings this year so looked at the car insurance. We are with Direct Line and have beeen for as long as I can remember. Used confused.com and saved ourself over £200. I am going to do the same thing with the household insurance. Once I have done that I am going to go and see about electricity/gas suppliers. Whey give them all our hard earned cash. Just need to get up of your bum a bit and look around.

            At least we have the web. It was a nightmare when you had to phone around for quotes.
