Swinton, what a bunch of twats

After every penny using very hard sell phone tactics.
Hyper pushy cow asked me when my present cover runs out and then tells me we'll start your cover when your current policy expires.
No you won't says I, and you won't get my business next year too.

What with their policy surcharges, awkward website and pestering phone calls they can shag off.

Anyone else had bother from these idiots?

:mad:

local

Must say I am happy to stay with swinton, as in my town there is a local branch, though saying that, I always buy on- line. Yes they phone me and this year after the first quote, I could find two other companies cheaper, yet when I google info regarding these other firms, most peeps said keep well clear. It has also to be repeated,it is always stated that you get the service that you pay for. To be fair to the folks at Swinton,in my experiance, after the first phone call, no matter your response, they then do leave you alone, no pestering.

Insurance

agenot has hit the nail on the head.  How many times on this forum have complaints been made against insurance comanpies for poor service, cancellation charges or inflexibility?  And in most cases it's the bucket-shop brokers that are the subject of these complaints.

You get what you pay for.  Pay a little extra up front and you are likely to save time, money and hassle in the long run.

SWINTON..NO PROBLEMS

I've got house, car and bike insurance with Swinton.  I've had no problems, they always come down cheaper if pushed and will NOT pester with phone calls.....It all depends what box you tick on the form...

very polite, very helpful, and were very quick to pay out on a claim too.

MAGIC:biggrin:

Forgot to mention

It's breakdown insurance they were pestering me about, the rep was trying to get out of me when my renewal comes up and get me to verbally agree to go with them.
She seemed to get very agitated when I refused because I wanted to check the small print online instead of giving in and saying yes.
