    Another stupid renewal quote

    Hi guys.

    Could you please advise me where to insure my bike now because I just received a renewal from Bennetts for £740!!!
    I did a quick quote on MCN and Go compare and I get as low as £230-£350 for the same cover.
    Unfortunately cheaper was only Devitt, GoSkippy,etc..
    Where to go now?

    I had Bennetts last year and at this years renewal was quoted about £120 which was a sizeable (well for me anyway) increase. I did all the usual comparison sites and found the best offer was £80. Went back to Bennetts and they price matched so stayed with them. I couldn't ask for any more than that. I have fully comp with protected no claims on a 57 plate 1200GS and I'm 53 with decades of no claims although I think they only recognised a max of 9 years.

    With the insurer / broker you are happiest with when you've finished your trawl around the internet or your multiple phone calls.

    Your final choice may well not be the same as mine, the same as Fat Bob Bikermate from Barnsley's or Even Fatter Bob Bikermate from Bridlington's but that's life, I'm afraid. If it does happen to be same? Well, isn't that just lovely, as you'll know who to blame when it all goes tits-up.

    Two similar quotes, one from Devitt or from Hastigs Direct.
    Which one to choose?

    Look at who the actual underwriters are - that might sway you?
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    Increase in bike thefts (particularly London's epidemic) must be having an impact across the board

    Has the OP reached a decision in his 50-50 either-or and which one of two, conundrum?

    Will it be the right one?

    Does he need more help?

    Will he need to be reasssured that his decision was definitely the right one?

    Will he need to be informed that he's just made the worse mistake of his life, ruining it for him and all those close to him forever?

    The spotlight is primed, ready to shine on him. Let's hope he hasn't gone all shy and is now hiding in the wings.
