“Stay away”

Written on: 21/07/2017 by JasmineHouston (1 review written)

I have been using this insurance company for over 2 years. Waste of time and a lot of stress when it came to making a claim due to theft. They twisted my claim and told me it was 'loss' which they do not cover and i provided them with a loss number. In actual fact it was a crime reference number for theft. So they claim to have better judgement than the police now. They kept on fobbing me off with the definition of loss and theft which further supported my claim that it was theft. Be careful… Read Full Review

“Unable to fix my phone”

Written on: 15/04/2017 by Jayyyyyy (1 review written)

Stay away from this company. They use underhanded ways to get customers. They 'fixed' my phone by using different coloured parts and then said it passed quality checks. The list goes on from taking data to not fixing the initial problem I sent the phone in with through to using incorrect sized parts. Stay away… Read Full Review

“Some staff are appalling...”

Written on: 07/03/2017 by JudahAndrews379 (1 review written)

So to cut a long story short - I think they only have 2 people working in their claim department - as I have spoken to the same unhelpful man on several occasions! He was/is the worst representative of a company I have ever had the misfortune to come across. Oh and if you dare to put a claim in - please be aware that you have to have more proof of purchase than a receipt provided by the company - although it has a merchant number on it could be from anyone..'you could have just found this on… Read Full Review

“8 weeks without resolution”

Written on: 02/03/2017 by Beasley354 (1 review written)

Theft claim refused because members-only gym considered 'space that the public has common access to'. Then appeal process takes 8 weeks with no way to contact them directly to discuss or update me. Because they only replace the handset, not give monetary pay-out, I can't buy a replacement phone for another 8 weeks unless I risk wasting money on a new phone, getting the replacement later and then having an expensive redundant phone... Terrible service. Business model does require them to reject… Read Full Review

“Quick and easy screen replacement! ”

Written on: 31/12/2016 by 417Pruitt (1 review written)

After dropping and smashing my phone screen I was really worried about the process of getting it fixed with my insurance (as you can see, the reviews are not the best). However, I was really pleasantly surprised! The whole process was quick and very straightforward. The best part about it was that I didn't have to send my phone off anywhere as I was able to take it to Apple to be fixed and City Main reimbursed me for it within 3 working days (despite the busy Christmas period). I honestly… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/11/2016 by PorterYates (1 review written)

I dropped my phone and cracked the screen sent it off to the insurance only to be told couldn't be fixed and I would receive another one in 5-7 working days. 3 weeks later and after numerous phone calls I am being told that they are still waiting for refurbished ones coming in and can't give me a date. What aload of rubbish why pay insurance if they can't get you the goods. I said it could be another month then which there reply was it shouldn't be. Don't touch them go elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Poor Service.Poor communication.Bad insurance company.”

Written on: 06/11/2016 by DarrenKennedy179 (1 review written)

Paid for the most expensive phone insurance, hoped I wouldn't ever have to use it, but it happened and my mobile was stolen.Within a couple of hours my provider was made aware, same day reported to police.Textbook stuff. After taking an age to finally accept the claim,( they wanted a crime report, which I told them to get for themselves, as the police wanted a high fee for providing one.They subsequently dropped this requirement.) Was told the replacement was on its way, and would be with me in… Read Full Review

“Not even a 1 star”

Written on: 26/10/2016 by Heidimkrichards (1 review written)

Stay away from this company. Never received such terrible customer service In my life. Spoke to several different employees from this company, they all told me completely different things. Rude over the phone, don't respond to emails. I've had an absolute head ache with this company, they dont seem to have a clue what they are doing. They didn't even fix my phone properly the first time. If you are with this company don't trust a word they say!! AVOID!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Completely unsatisfactory service”

Written on: 20/10/2016 by Silva19 (1 review written)

Extremely lengthy process. Once phone was sent to repair centre the communication on behalf of city main was terrible. After several days I was contacted to say they could not source the parts in the correct colour and I had to call to see if I would accept the phone in a different colour instead. I was told unless I did this I would have to wait even longer to get my phone back which wasn't possible as I needed the phone back in time to take away on a work trip. I was assured it would be back… Read Full Review

“Appalling company, appalling customer service”

Written on: 06/10/2016 by MicA-Q (1 review written)

Insurance arranged via a third party. Phone was water damaged - high excess demanded before they would process my claim. I was then told to go to the AppleSupport Setvice and submit my receipt for a refund. Currently refusing to process refund as they are requesting a report they never requested, Di not respond to emails. Worst company I have ever had dealings with… Read Full Review

First they sent me the wrong tablet, then I had to go back tablet for which I paid 8.40 pounds, which they didn't made recovery as promised. After two months since I made the claim, they said that will send me the correct tablet, on the day when I must received the tablet I got a message in which was written that before five minutes ago I was received my product. Immediately I called on the company that had to deliver my tablet and I said that I have not received anything also informed and… Read Full Review
