Rise In Premium
When I first insured my 'van in 2009 the premium, in full, was £158.88 (Frank Pickles). The following year it went down to £150. I thought, for full comp. that was very reasonable.
The premium has crept up each year. I particularly resent items such as 'Administration Fee' - the preparation of the insurance should include that, surely. What is the point of itemising it?
Last year I was grateful to have a damaged windscreen replaced, free of charge, but apparently this does not count against one's no claims bonus.
Today I received my renewal documents and the premium has risen again, to £239.43. I'm not sure what percentage rise that is over five years but is probably above the rate of inflation.
So, is it worth shopping around?
I own an Autosleeper Symbol, yr. 2000, Peugeot Boxer, petrol (a van conversion high top). Two drivers.
