Recommendations and Ones to Avoid...

Hi all...

Passed my MOD2 last week and have decided to buy a new CBR600F.

Which insurance companies would you recommend and who should I stay well clear of?

Thanks in advance...

Avoid bennetts. They don't seem to like bikers and don't even seem to know anything about bike insurance.

I was with Footman James for years as tho not always the cheapest their level of cover and service was superb.. and couldnt fault the breakdown service they supplied.....

sadly they were too expensive this year and am now with carole nash.. who have been good so far in regards to customer service... and i got a free DNA marking kit in with the policy..

Carol Nash

I used Carol Nash (policy with Aviva) for my first year on the CBF125.

Changed to a CBR600F at start of second year. After looking around I found Casol Nash to be the best for me. Again the policy was with Aviva so I contacted Aviva direct & they were 40% higher than Carol Nash.

And you get a free Datatag kit so for me it's Carol Nash/Aviva.

Avoid MCE. They are usually the cheapest but are impossible to contact. Their staff are useless and they out right lie. They made up a claim that I suposedly made when wanting my certificate of no claims to transfer policy, but couldn't tell me what it was or when. After much complaining and several months of hassle they later said they didn't know what I was talking about and I had not made a claim!!!:blink: Also after sorting out the previous problem my renewal went from £479 to £1749 with an extra years no claims and no additional changes.

ebike are crap

been with then 7 years, last years quote for gsxr750 was £126 plus an additional £15 to cover six months insurance on the shadow on a multi policy, to insure the shadow on its own come renewal. £152.28. they wont get my custom again so now im hunting for a decent quote. go from a fast sport bike to laid back cruiser and it goes up with 10 years no claims,I think not.:mad:

MCE cheap and nasty

i took a policy out through MCE and after 6 months of trying to get them to send me the policy documents and them insisting each time copies had been sent i discovered there was no policy in force so i had been riding uninsured.


read the small print not just on yourdocuments but also on the website to make sure you know what you are buying
