Advantages Cheap, quick
Disadvantages no nodding dog
When it comes to car insurance, i'm afraid i'm a bit lazy. Don't get me wrong, i do have insurance but i haven't got the time to shop around and find not just the cheapest quote but also value for money.I've been driving for 9 years now and even when i've bought a new car. i've just gone along with the same company. A friend of mine told me i was stupid and could be saving money by getting quotes from other companies. But i was settled with what i already had. I was paying them for insurance and breakdown cover and in the 9 years i've only had to call them out once when the wife accidently left the light on on her sunblind and flattened the battery. But it's not the wife's fault I hear you all shout!
Anyway i moved last year to what i considered a better area when considering car crime and i also now had a garage to house the car. I rang the insurance company up expecting a nice reduction in my premium, to be actually told it would be going up by £20. I might of been shellshocked but stupidly agreed to the increase.It wasn't until a few weeks ago when my insurance renewal came through that i finally decided that action had to be taken. My renewal quote was just a joke with it going up another £7. Now you might be all thinking that £7 isn't much and i would agree. But when you've been driving for 9 years with no claims and no convictions, so am i wrong in thinking the premium should be going down?
So the mission was set, find a new company get it all organised and have great pleasure in saying bye bye to my current insurers. I started off by flicking through the yellow pages and obviously saw all the adverts which seem to be on constantly now. In a few years time there'll probably be a new digital channel just for these insurance companies to sell their products.I got a few quotes but they were all around the same price as i was already paying except one which was just ridiculous. You'd think I was driving a ferrari for the price i was quoted.
I had a moan one day to my father in law and he asked if i'd checked out Churchill. He did the same last year and got a free nodding dog. Well this is the selling point for me especially with a 2 year old that loves the Vic Reeves commercials.So I went online and typed in their website address, www.churchill.com and was amazed by all the different things you can insure with them. Anyway car insurance is at the top in the middle section and i was firstly drawn to those magical words, 10% off for applying online. Most companies now offer discounts for applying online and 10% was one of the best.
I clicked on car insurance and it firstly tells you what you can save on other insurance products if you are already a Churchill customer. I then clicked on, get quote and filled in my details. I also had my wife to add as an additional driver. The whole process took around five minutes. The only part i didn't like is your claim and convictions screen. You have 2 boxes for each and you enter any history you may have. Now with myself, I selected no convictions and no claims in the two boxes.
