    Avoiding Insurance Liability After Sale Office Closed

    Bearing in mind the recent thread regarding Insurance liability after a bike sale
    I tried calling my Broker I got an automated message about office hours Next I emailed them However Their website says that policies cannot be changed via email

    So apart from not conducting a sale out of office hours How do they expect one (or them) to avoid liability?



    Bennetts btw

    You've provided notice to on the day of sale which would be fair and reasonable. It happens to be a weekend and shock horror no one is there.

    If you decided to inform them in early June, that wouldn't be fair and reasonable, now would it.


    To summarise: You've wasted five minutes of your life typing out that. I've wasted two of mine responding.

    Shall we move on, per chance...

    Firstly it was more of a general point and no reflection on the buyer Secondly fair and reasonable is open to interpretation since their statement about emails is vague
    Wouldn't it be better for Bennets to have a reporting system?

    I have to add that the DVLA does not appear to work on a Sunday either

    I specifically asked about this same scenario and without fail sarcastic answers given. Out of hours is a problem.

    They won't take instruction by email because they want to charge you.

    I have a different view that you tell them at the first opportunity when they are open and fuck em. Not sure where we stand legally but if they are not open why should the policy holder be liable...

    So meanwhile, back in the real world.

    What happened when you phoned and actually asked the insurance company about those circumstances?
