“Skip "Go Skippy"”

Written on: 07/04/2016 by RoninMartin364 (1 review written)

They took my money quickly, One month later they cancelled it minus one months payment PLUS A £50 ADMIN FEE !!!!! They said they sent emails asking for the paper part of the licence, funny how I never received them, They said they sent txt messages, again nothing received. My suspicion is that this company are ripping people off for the Admin fee. Sometimes things are too cheap to be true, I think that this is the case on this occasion. Best advices I can give, just skip go Skippy… Read Full Review

“Good service”

Written on: 02/03/2016 by spduffy1982 (1 review written)

Despite previous reviews, the service i received was ok, they explained the policy endorsements and conditions of the policy, what to do with documents after the sale. You can tell that they read from a script and sounded like robots but they did the job right for me. Give them a try but if in doubt don't buy. The admin fees were advised and cancellation rights were explained too. Can't see how they can charge £20 admin fee for cancelling within the first 14 days, i have fed this back to… Read Full Review

“Disgusting Service!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 01/03/2016 by LuisaHarris1983 (1 review written)

I have been with GoSkippy 3 years and have had nothing but headaches from this company. Each year the service has got worse. The first year they miss sold add ons then when I complained about this refused point blank to take them off even though I hadn't asked for them. The second year they tried to fee my renewal by £150 - for automatically renewing ?? I then had a claim (non-Fault) and my car came back in a worse state then I sent it in. This year they have sent me a renewal of over £2000-… Read Full Review

“Do I have to even give them a star?”

Written on: 17/02/2016 by yrMcNeil101 (1 review written)

I was with them for nearly two years and it was fine until you need to contact them. I needed to buy another car and needed to inform them. After sitting for an 1 1/2 hours in the new car, unable to drive away (during office hours not 2am) I decided to go somewhere else. I got a letter to say there was a £27 cancellation fee. I didn't mind paying it so I phoned to pay. After several attempts of being on hold for up 35 minutes I decided I had better things to do with my time. I emailed… Read Full Review

“steer clear”

Written on: 07/02/2016 by georgebudah (1 review written)

give this company a wide berth. I have now cancelled my policy and got a great deal with privlage. I used a broker for that and to be honest it just cost the same to set up with the broker as it would have with this awful lot. trying to cancel my policy was like clambering over hurdles. (try contacting them by e mail. impossible) I could go on but if you choose this company you do so at your own pearl. you have been warned… Read Full Review

“Renewal”

Written on: 30/01/2016 by Maldonadoss285 (1 review written)

Come renewal time, landline bombarded with text messages telling you your renewal is due, Rang them to ask to stop, got no where, hung up after 5 minutes of of call centre unable to understand my post code, kept putting P instead of N despite saying every word beginning with N, They send letters as well saying they have a better renewal price so you ring them, they ask you for loads of information before you discuss your policy and then they haven't got a better price than the expensive… Read Full Review

“Broad day robbery!”

Written on: 21/01/2016 by LOUIE2 (1 review written)

These guys are a bunch of thugs! I paid a deposit of £87, submitted all the documents they requested. They wrote to me confirming they were in receipt of all my documents and my policy was now validated. But lo and behold, they subsequently, followed it up with another email stating my policy had been cancelled because there were other outstanding documents which I had no idea about. I phoned up customer services straight away - it was the most unhelpful phone call. Wasted 20-30 minutes on the… Read Full Review

Pierrel1664's Response to LOUIE2's Review

Written on: 22/03/2016

Exactly the same as me, I paid £92 deposit and they cancelled it 4 days before the documents were due. And they are also linked to Eldon insurance with Northern Rock underwriting?

“Shouldn't be allowed to conduct business.”

Written on: 09/01/2016 by MacLeancc16 (1 review written)

I've been with them 7 months, 3 months in, they cancelled my policy saying I had lied about my details, when in fact they had me confused with another person. After not being able to get through to customer services, only sales, I had to send multiple emails and called the sales line over 30 times to get them to sort it out. Eventually they responded after being presented with evidence and threats from the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Ombudsman. Because they made me miss work… Read Full Review

“Horrific”

Written on: 09/01/2016 by Yesenial315 (1 review written)

This company is a complete joke and I am very upset at myself for insuring my car with them! From the word go they have been a nightmare! The price was good but not unbelievably great so I wasn't suspicious. This was my first car so I wasn't clued up on it all yet, they took advantage of that big time!! I had sent all of my documents away and was as far as I was concerned all set up and ready to go, then they called me and told me I had made a mistake and were going to be charging me £50 and… Read Full Review

“STAY AWAY - You have been warned”

Written on: 03/01/2016 by mcmalago (1 review written)

What an absolute nightmare!! From the minute I got my insurance to now when I have just managed to cancel the policy and end the nightmare for the year! When I first went with go skippy they quoted me a very good quote to get me started so I went with it! A first time policy for my son, allowed us parents to go on as extra drivers. Then just 4 hours after sending all of my documents and paying for the policy, they told me we had made an error and said we had to pay an additional 240 pounds… Read Full Review

“absolutely disgusting”

Written on: 29/12/2015 by BritneyGentry1952 (1 review written)

I would not recommend this company to anyone my insurance was due for renewal and before I could ring to say I no longer wanted to stay with them they took a deposit without asking. They also sent me a £10 charge for not sending something off which I did then a week later charged me again for the same thing when I knew it was sent off twice. They are absolutely useless and I'm now stuck with them for another year… Read Full Review
