Thread: Final Insurance Story....

    Default Final Insurance Story....

    Well, I've left it until now... but wanted to give you the heads up on my insurance claim following this thread

    Back in January this year, I was persuaded to try Barry Grainger Insurance who sorted out the best quote (declaring all mods) through Highway

    Then I had to make a no-fault claim (van driver hit the car) to get it repaired...

    - Got a Brand New Passat Diesel courtacy car
    - Took it to the garage of my choice for repair
    - No Hassles

    and today I received a cheque from Highway for £ 528.75 as a cash settlement payment for my 'scratched' exhaust system (as I couldnt get it repaired straight away, and probably wont now as its hardly noticeable)..

    Now, I'm not sure what the service would have been like if I had crashed into someone else, but gotta say top marks for my circumstance

    After the main repair, I called them to ask if I can book my car into the exhaust centre to be repaired. They said OK.

    So when I tried to book it in, the exhaust place told me that the 911 style tailpipes were not in stock.. so I had to wait...

    and wait..... and wait..... and wait.....

    So I called Highway again, and explained that the tailpipes were delayed (import/fabrication/supply/hassle) or something... and could I have a cash settlement instead. To my surprise they agreed, I got a quote, they got the report from the estimation and paid me the £528.75 !!

    Result.... (My full years insurance premium was only £550)
