Bizarre insurance quotes

45 year old male.
Engineer.
Living in SW Herts.
Not garaged. Parked in a cul de sac. Alarmed.
3 points.
Licence for ever.
Merc 2.7 Avantgarde SE estate. 2003. 28K.
Being turned down all over the place.
Best quote was 560 with the Halifax.
Full Comp. Protected. 300 excess.
Seems very steep.
Anyone got a better idea?

Cheers

Tim

I would say thats quite good for the halifax. Typically they have been 200 to 300 more than the next dearest for me.

You dont say what bike though.

Got my renewal from Carol Nash - 830.

Phoned then and said to give me their lowest price as I didnt have time to phone around for a million and one quotes - 780

Phoned Devitt to see if they could beat CN - 670

Phoned CN back expecting a tenner less - 580


250 off with 3 phone calls. Crazy dudes...

If I'm reading the post right, it is for a Mercedes 2.7 Avantgarde Estate not a bike.

Have you tried Mercedes themselves?

Personally I use Morethan

Oh i see. I thought he was saying that he had an expensive car as well as the bike..

Interestingly most of my bike quotes that i've been getting say there is no discount for garaging it.

Mine would go up by about 400 if it wasn't in a garage!

Try Priviledge and play them off against direct Line (their owners) if you will take a bigger excess the rates come down quite a bit.

The thing i find odd is that my car is ultra ordinary (1999 fiat marea 1.6) yet with seven years no claims, no points etc its still more expensive to insure than the bike.
