    I shopped around for mine a couple of weeks ago, got a similiar deal offered to me from some companies although they did'nt make it so obvious by calling it a mirror deal, more a case of them doing me a favour' if you believe that one.:Rofl1:anyway the end result was ok.
    Good tip though, "if you don't ask you don't get" :thumb:

    Insurance is a crazy place.

    I got renewal for bike - about £220.

    I look on web with biggest competitor broker - £95.

    I buy, policy arrives and it's the same policy.

    Go figure !

    At a ROSPA lecture on Tuesday we were advised that insurance companies were denying customers' cover because the vehicle was not at original as purchased spec and they hadn't been advised - as in;

    Oh! you've had an accident but it transpires that you have had (for example) alloy wheels fitted since you bought the vehicle. You didn't advise us of that. Sorry (walks away rubbing hands) :Eek!:

    or

    ...... you've fitted a non standard exhaust system - you didn't tell us about that. Don't call us....

    Now what effect a super-duper exhaust system has on the handling of a vehicle, etc. I don't know. But apparently this is happening quite a lot.

    Moral - if you've had your vehicle modified in any way, tell your insurance company. Which reminds me we'd better tell our lot about the Air Rides.

    You have to be careful when insuring through a company that does not normally handle motorhomes or caravans as they may not include insurance for the gas appliances (not normally found in cars).

    So check the cover very carefully.



    Why is the thread entitled "Paul".

    This has nothing whatsoever to do with the inquiry!!!!!

    It's much better if the title has some significance.
