“Worst experience of my life!”

Written on: 24/03/2015 by J4mou1 (1 review written)

I was hit by a third party who accepted liability instantly, open and closed case surely? Oh no! 4 weeks later, I still have no car and no payout although they have agreed to send payment once, but then realised it was above a threshold amount, so sent it back to their underwriters where it still is now. The main problem I think is communication, they clearly do not record information taken and they end up asking for the same information over and over again, the mark of true incompetence! They… Read Full Review

I am pleased to confirm since I wrote this and Markerstudy replied, they have agreed to payout! Nice to see you reply and do something positive with the information. I just want to put this whole experience behind me, and hopefully enjoy my car again soon!

“Claim Happy Insurer”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by 462Neville (1 review written)

Hi, Last November we were informed over the phone that a claim was logged against our car for a "nudge" whilst parking. We asked for more details which was like blood out of a stone then eventually told the date, location, colour and make of the claimant's car. Later it transpired the location and colour of car were totally wrong. Anyway, they keep drip feeding us with information about the claim. We eventually got photos but it only showed 2 cars parked closely together - this is not a crime… Read Full Review

“The Worst company ever! DO NOT USE, NEVER!!!”

Written on: 07/02/2015 by 245Berry (1 review written)

Took out insurance with this Markerstudy, while awaiting proof of my no claims bonus from previous insurers, they cancelled my policy. Not only that, I was duped into taking out another policy with them at a higher premium because apparently now that I had a cancellation mark on my file future insurance would be higher. Another incident was, they called me on my mobile accusing me of being involved in a motor accident. When I questioned where the accident was they were unable to confirm, the… Read Full Review

“Worst Company I've Ever Delt With”

Written on: 05/02/2015 by 1990McKinnon (1 review written)

I hit a fox and made a claim, it took 6 months 3 different engineers came and inspected my car, one said "what am I looking at" as my policy was for a highly modified car They had the gall to offer me £670 for a £3600 repair, which obviously I refused They did everything they could to try and not pay out or not pay for parts that were damaged even going as far as to say I had damaged my own car with a screwdriver, I was treated like a criminal and ended up throwing one of there "engineers"… Read Full Review

Couldn't agree more with you. They are the worst ever. They lie, they prevaricate and deliberately mislead. My car was vandalised last May. Still not been paid. I despise these rogues...........that is what they are, dishonest roques

“They will be your worst nightmare!!!!”

I really hope that you, review reader, can be more lucky than I was. The useless group of A&A transferred my policy to the most disgusting of them all: Markerstudy!!! I have never paid as much as this year and I am tied in a policy that I never wanted!!! Furthermore, if I want to cancel, I was told that I have to pay half price of the entire premium!!! I cannot believe how these people can be free instead of behind bars. I wish the all group the worst luck & hope it will soon disappear from… Read Full Review

“Moving near end of policy”

If you have Car Insurance with Markerstudy,make sure you don't move home just before your policy runs out, because I can only be of the firmest opinion that you will become the victim of a price rip-off.I am also of the firmest opinion that Markerstudy are in 'business bed' with a very low quality broker.From experience I am of the firmest opinion that I am a victim of a serious omission of written 'Key Fact' by both Markerstudy Insurance and the aforementioned broker… Read Full Review

Dont even deserve a tenth of a star. Disgusting, lying customer service. After agreeing to settle my claim, then say there not going to pay the agreed storage fees, then try claiming actually they cant settle my claim as theyve "lost my mot certificate" Customer services promise ill be called back several times, no one ever does. Operators refuse to let me speak to managers. Fobbed off constantly and spoken to like a piece of dirt on the phone, my favourite line "i was sat next to my… Read Full Review

“Disgusting service- do not use”

We were burgled, car stolen and this horrible company appear to be doing everything they can not to pay out. We are with the rac but somehow we deal with a rude lady from Markerstudy. 5 weeks on and now paying for a car hire as rac generously only cover 1st two weeks of a tiny car (we pay insurance for an estate) and they've advised could take same length of time again. Right before Xmas. They are rude- almost accused me of lying about our address and insisted I provide the most recent dvla v5… Read Full Review

Her name is [removed]. I'm happy to name and shame her because our car was found, the burglars arrested and when I emailed to tell her that fortunately we would not be needing her terrible service anymore (I wasn't that rude though) she just said "if you only have one key, you'll need to change all locks and pay £375 upfront for this". Not one word of, "great, good news" etc etc. rude right to the bitter end and we are moving from the RAC now. As soon as I've sorted it, I'll make a formal complaint about her-unbelievably rude service from start to finish and still haven't paid out for the £150 it cost me to collect my car from the Police pound, any material possessions stolen inside the car-nothing. Terrible from start to finish-don't use RAC.

“An awful company at best! ”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by Nicoley (1 review written)

To say this company is a joke would be giving to much credit! After a speeding driver drove into the back of me in march they have just wrote to say it is my fault... Because he was speeding! In their words being on that same road with him was negligent on my part! The claim has been a nightmare from the start. I was passed from pillar to post being asked the same questions. And not all even knew why I'd been put through to them! They missed of parts of what I had told them (ie an… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE EVER!!”

Written on: 20/11/2014 by Arghgggggg (1 review written)

Poor communication - they will NEVER contact you! If you have an accident which isn't your fault - they will take FOREVER to settle it! (& when they do they add hidden charges that you never knew about) If you call them they will pass you through to their broker(premium choice) who will keep passing you back as forward to each other all day long. After I complained about them to the financial ombudman they were given 4 weeks to pay out compensation - it's now 8 weeks and still nothing!! IF… Read Full Review

Not even worth one star! I purchased my car insurance with Markerstudy last year as it was cheap(BIG MISTAKE!) and about a week later somebody smashed into my car. It took them 6 months for them to tell me it wasn't my fault even though I had 3 witnesses! They did not contact me once, all the contact was made by myself! I went to the financial ombudsman about the company and nearly a year on I still haven't had any compensation money & now they've opened the claim after closing it and I… Read Full Review

Toutalis's Response to EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE's Review

Written on: 16/02/2015

Hi,

We've got a similar issue and guess what ? MarkerStudy is involved.

Last November we were informed over the phone that a claim was logged against our car for a "nudge" whilst parking. We asked for more details which was like blood out of a stone then eventually told the date, location, colour and make of the claimant's car. Later it transpired the location and colour of car were totally wrong.

Anyway, they keep drip feeding us with information about the claim. We eventually got photos but it only showed 2 cars parked closely together - this is not a crime ! We just received a witness statement saying there was a "nudge" to the claimant's car at 1 or 2 mph but get this, still no comment around any damage. We don't even know what they are trying to claim despite numerous requests.

I'm convinced this is another one of those companies that are "claim happy" i.e., will pursue any false positive claim so they can recover their fees and create misery. They keep giving us ultimatums like reply within 7 days else they will process the claim. It's seems their default position that we are guilty unless we can keep proving otherwise. Absolute criminals and have already raised the issue with the regulators. I should also invoice them for time wasted.

There are plenty of comments on this company about taking out a policy with MarkerStudy but, if you are unfortunate enough to have a claim raised against you, beware !

“Worst company to deal with!”

Written on: 03/10/2014

After having an accident last year I contacted market study. The communication was terrible and I was discriminated against my age and instead of fighting my corner it was the complete opposite. They refused to reply to emails and the ombudsman had to be involve due to my Mis-treatment. I thought I was saving money going with them but the money I saved was not worth the stress. The situation still is on going and solicitors have been involved. My advice to anyone stay away from this company!!!… Read Full Review

For that reason solicitors are now involved. These people should not be trading!… Read Full Review

Why are you reviewing a third party?? Why hasn't your insurer paid the claim. Thats what your Insurance company should be doing and recovering off Markerstudy if they fell the third party is at fault. Seems like there is more to the story

Our insurance paid us out minus the excess as markerstudy have not admitted liability. That's how insurance works. They must realise they are at fault, why else would they not contact our insurance. They have phoned, sent emails even wrote letters, no reply for two months!

“Shocking communication!”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by 341Rowe (1 review written)

A driver insured by Marker Study smashed into my husband on the 30th July. The police were on site and liability fell on the other driver as they were speeding and also nearly ran over a pedestrian. However, it's now over 2 weeks on and my own insurance company cannot even get hold of them to get them to accept liability for their driver. We are now without a car for 2 weeks and our courtesy car company cannot get hold of them either in order to get us a hire car until we find a new one to buy… Read Full Review

“Surprisingly Pain Free Claim ”

After my Corrado VR6 Was stolen last month I went straight online and looked for reviews and found this site. My heart sank. What I can say now my claim in complete - I've had no issues and it was relativity pain free. Car was stolen 4th July. I received my check on the 7th August. Not bad! I put a claim in to Makerstudy immediately after my car disappeared. I was told I'd get another phone call in a few days. The next day I receive a phone call where the Markerstudy representative… Read Full Review
