They are the bunch of deceivers, they had a history and determined pattern of deception, They will give you insurance for certain time everything will go smoothly and suddenly they will start threatening you and on the basis of those lame excuses they will decline your insurance and than will send you a heavy bill. These liars are very well covered under the flaw of this country's law and just sucking the blood of common people. Please be aware dont Just stuck with them… Read Full Review

“Bunch of commission based liars with no customer care! ”

Written on: 15/09/2014 by Brennaneb470 (1 review written)

This company as caused us nothing but stress over the last few months. Duplicate policies set up for same vehicle costing us extra payment of £500 to them. Never answer they phones on send the paper work all they want are payment details and they are happy. This week has been even more stressful because they never sent renewal reminder through post or email. Complained to be fobbed off with a final response letter claiming a bunch of lies a copy of the renewal we never got and evened claimed… Read Full Review

“Time to remove this company from price comparison sites”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by Stu4648 (1 review written)

This company has a long history of ripping people off, myself included. It is time for the price comparison sites to remove them for the sake of the people who use these sites to find the best deal. This company may quote you a good price but they are a nightmare to deal with. They take money from your account without consent, they use a postal system for cancellations so they can get more money out of you. This caused my policy to be extended into a second month for which I was charged a full… Read Full Review

“They cancelled my policy and then charged ME!!!”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by angeblaze1 (1 review written)

I found this firm from comparethemarket.com and took out a car policy with them in mid-May to start on June 6th. Paid in full and received email Policy. All good and well....and then I received a letter from them on 13th June to say they were cancelling my policy as I was an unacceptable risk to them. When I spoke to a totally uninterested member of staff she told me that I had not disclosed the driving convictions of my second driver. When I insisted that I had she said I needed to take it up… Read Full Review

I took out a trade policy with them back in December. I have held a trade policy for the last 15 years and had nothing but hassle trying to sort my insurance with them to a point I was not going to bother. I did however and wish I hadn't took at least a month to sort paperwork even then I still had to ring them for a cover note.They then decided to charge me an extra £460 out of the blue which I eventually sorted.last month they decided they wanted proof I was a trader an even though I said I… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 21/03/2014 by Lrc85 (1 review written)

This appears to be a business that has no concern, regard or care for it's customers needs and I would question their ethics and principles. Can't get through to anybody on the phone, get passed from department to department and their pricing structure is questionable at best. Their staff must be on minimum wage, as they are incompetent and care-free. Avoid at all costs, and pay a couple of quid more if needed: you'll be glad to steer clear of them. Reviews and recommendations are everything… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2014

Charged me 110 pound for a policy that they cancelled, said i sent my documents to the wrong department which was probably in the room next door also and i quote proof of delivery is not proof of receipt does that even make sense to anyone? So renewed my policy only for the exact same thing to happen. Managers and supervisors could not care less that people work hard for 110 pound and once isn't enough they want to do it again. Will be complaining to AMOTHER department then to trading… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2014

LOL I have a trade policy with the Insurance factory........bad company, rude and not helpful what-so-ever!!! sorry I even got the policy!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!! I have been dealing with them for a period of 4+ years and its never been so bad!!.
Every payment they are trying to charge'' Administration charge'' of £25.00 + you on the phone for at least 1/2 hour to speak to some rude person who has no idea what the word SERVICE means!!.
BEWARE + BEWARE+ BEWARE.

P.S Ive offered to pay what was due on my account and was refused cause I didn't have the means to pay any late charges at the moment.
they sent a reminder letter+ I called the next day to pay and was refused to make due payment because I don't have an extra £25 quid!! all the year of using them means nothing to this company!!.

PLEASE PEOPLE BE WISE AND DONT END UP LIKE ME!!!

Totally agree, absolute disgrace of a compnay. Insured for four months before they decided they needed proof of address, then drivers licence, then my husbands licence. Going backwards and forwards with farcical customer service. Was told that if I did not send these documents through THEY would cancel my policy but charge ME at least £75 cancellation fee. Disgusted!

I rang mid day 27th June to amend details to my policy as I am getting a new car. I wad transferred to 3 different departments and was put on hold for approx 20min, I then hang up! I tried again at approx 6pm and ws told someone from the correct department would call me back in 10mins, 45min later still no call. I then attempted to call on both my land line and mobile simultaneously, after being on hold 15 mins i was told I needed to speak to some one in the Zeneth department, I was cut off during the transfer! I continued to call again on both phones almost 40 mins later I got through!! nirmala molloy

Why would I spend time writing a review if I did not receive good service ? Having worked in retail myself for over 20 years I feel it's important to give credit where it is due! If you have not received good service yourself then take that up with the company but leaving rude comments on my review is just pathetic ! Thanks l
