MCN/MCE FREE 7 day insurance, JOKE

Found a Honda PCX 125 for sale in the MCN ads and saw that it came with the buyers pack, which includes FREE 7 day insurance from MCE. So I gave them a ring today, as I'm collecting tomorrow. First off, was passed around a few extensions, before I was cut off. Second, "you know theres a £1000 excess third party cover only on this" Thats OK I said, gave all my details, now I have had a full  bike licence for 37  years, no accidents, claims etc, live in rural Norfolk, nothing to create a risk for any insurer, cannot see that the PCX can be high risk either. Then I was put on hold for the call taker to speak to his manager, finally. "Sorry we cannot provide cover"

What a joke this scheme is, looks like  misleading advertising to me, What say you MCN????????

I have tried many times to use MCN compare insurance online. I have never got past a certain point and NEVER got a quote off them. Gave up and i use the tried and tested methods.

Oh by the way i don't think MCN staff read these forums.

Did you get the scooter. I hired one for a week in Thailand, great as a run around. Wondered why it kept cutting out until i sussed it had that stop go thing, weird.

Picked it up today, rode it back to Norwich from Hastings in one hit, bar a stop to fill up with 5L of fuel, kept it around 60 all the way! The stop/start works well. Bit strange that MCN staff do not monitor posts. 

In that case, has anyone managed to get the FREE 7 DAY INSURANCE?

Hi Westbarn,

Apologies for your experience. I will private you as I'd like to speak to you further, before I take this up with MCE.

Many thanks,
