    My renewal is coming up and I'm currently with MCE.  No issues with them but then again I have not had to contract them  :002:

    Just wondering what other insurers are recommended by the members?

    Cheers.

    Was with Carole Nash for years, then about two years ago my premium soared for no apparent reason.
    Now with Principal insurance , apparently a couple of Ex CN guys set it up, even have the custom bike stand and "easy on the eye" young ladies dishing out calendars at the bike show just like CN did.

    I can also vouch for Bemoto, very helpful staff, good prices and I know the people who set the business up! Ive got my CT and Blackbird on the same policy, very reasonable.

    A bit  :450: but i thought id share a recent event with my car insurance that may be a word of warning.

    My car renewal is due at tthe end of the month so the other day my renewal email from Admiral arrived showing last years premium (as i think theyre obliged to now) and the renewal premium.
    Last year £183, renewal £384!

    Bit of a hike that but they do try it on, as i looked down the email it gave the vehicle details.  BMW 530i  Reg: ASC 123,  i drive a 2.2 Diesel Honda Accord!

    I called up to find out what was going on.  They said, "oh yes you changed your vehicle on the 4th of August". No i didnt.

    What i did do was call them to get a quote on the type of car i was considering buying. I hadnt even found a particular car so i never even gave them a registration.

     It was a general enquiry, the was also another car they quoted for.

    The worst part is, they had cancelled the policy on the Honda and ive been driving with no insurance on my vehicle!

    The dozy sod id spoken to had started a new policy on a car that doesnt exist. ive no idea how on earth they managed to do this.

    Needless to say, im leaving Admiral in a few days.
