E-mail from E-Bike = "underwriters won't entertain"
Bollox, scour internet for quotes, £9000 odd pounds !
Call from "the bike insurer" we can do a policy for 15 months, £1288,
Answer - fu*k off - way too much
after 3 more calls, final quote, £998.58p
NO - still too expensive.
"I'll speak to underwriters again - ring you back"
Meanwhile = Ducati insurance quote on-line = £577 for 12 months = RESULT me thinks !
Bike insurer rings, tell him I've got a quote on-line, and I tell him (well - nearly the right figure)
what it is, the thump of his jaw dropping could be clearly heard, Equity red star - £570, comp etc
, "can I ring you back" ?
Of course you can - but not with a silly quote
End result, 15 month policy, legal,breakdown,helmet + leathers,courtesy bike,90 day Europe cover, £566-36p
I'm convinced these insurance companies all belong to the "society of Robbin Hoods" (or *******s) more like !
