    Having changed from my Ford Transit Buccaneer to my Fleetwood Jamboree my insurers Shield told me they don`t really cover RV s as such but they would transfer the last two months. So, did a search on tinternet to see what came up AIB quoted £1400 cos it is my first American MH so it is more expensive. Shield then send me a renewal proposal for £752, so Adrian flux gives me everything I need for £520, "That`s ok who is that with?" Oh says the bloke Equity Red Star why do you ask.
    "Cos they just quoted me £752." Ah well he says different brokers get different deals Hmmmmmmmm:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Insurance is a total rip off always has been. They know you need it and price accordingly. Time something was done about it.

    I don't have a single good word to say about any insurance company.

    I compare them very unfavourably with bankers.

    IMHO 3rd party insurance, which is a legal requirement, should be at a fixed price, and set by the Ministry, as is the maximum cost of an MOT.

    If you want all the bells and whistles as well, then that would be between you and your broker.

    I also think that the vehicle itself should be insured, not the driver, much as they do in many other countries.

    I informed my Insurance company that my car would be kept at the property in the Isle of Dogs, so the premium went up by around £230 pa.

    Due to a change in circumstances I decided to keep the car in Grimsby for the foreseeable future.

    I rang them to change this and guess what? The premium remained the same, at £230 dearer.

    No explanation at all was forthcoming.

    I know who won't get my business next year.

    They are Green and have a heart in their ad.logo.
