“Cheap but not worth the aggro”

Written on: 11/08/2014

Had no end of problems trying to get them to accept my (perfectly legit) proof of NCD. They hardly ever answered emails and when they did it was always a different person so there was never any continuity, and I was never given a direct email address so always had to use the generic customer services one. The aggro they caused me and the stress of having them threatening to cancel my insurance was not worth the £30-odd I saved on my premium, so learn from my mistake and don't let yourself be… Read Full Review

“Didn't do what they promised.”

Written on: 15/06/2014 by 306Campbell (1 review written)

As a dealer we need insurance docs to register bikes. We (dealer and the customer) were twice promised e-mails which just didn't arrive on time. And £1.02 per minute to talk to someone is more than most other brokers. I will not be using them again… Read Full Review

“Premium Rate Contact Number”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by CristalNelson228 (1 review written)

This has to be the worst insurance company in the UK. Not only are they extremely slow to contact you regarding the claim they fail to keep you informed. My vehicle repair has been waiting for their engineer to assess for approval for 10 days. Fully Comp insured terrible service spend a few pound more and avoid this company like the plague… Read Full Review

“Would give them ZER0 stars if I could”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by R850R (1 review written)

Insured with them for a few years then my renewal arrives, premium gone up from GBP152 to GBP550 after no change in circumstances. Tried emailing them to find why - no answers. Then the dreaded phone call was needed - twice waited 15 minutes on their high rate number. (This must be done deliberately as you listen to thier unending adverts). Eventually get through; girl says "don't why it's gone up, we're not told". Within 5 minutes of putting phone down I'd got 2 quotes elsewhere for under… Read Full Review

“5 urgent e-mails in 6 days, no reply”

Written on: 21/05/2014

I've been with ebike insurance for less than three weeks. 6 days ago i recived an e-mail requesting a copy of my licence or my policy would be cancelled and i would be charged. I have moved house and I am waiting for my new licence to arrive. I have repeatedly e-mailed them asking what should be done, so far no reply. Tomorrow is the deadline and I don't know if they will cancel my policy or not. This is not acceptable… Read Full Review

Griff_The_Riff's Comment

Written on: 28/05/2014

Since writing my first review I have phoned ebike on their premium rate phone line @£1.02 / minute from a land line, still waiting for my mobile bill to get a cost of the 11 minute call. I explained the situation and they confirmed they had my e-mails but their system had automatically closed them.

My licence arrived that same day so I sent the copies as per their instructions, each morning for three days. 5 days later I had another e-mail telling me I now have 3 days to send my licence. Their systems are obviosly not up to the job and their phone line is a money making device.

I would ask you all to concider if you should use an on line insurance service (which is not the cheapest) if their systems don't work? You take out insurance because you have to and for peace of mind. I am likely to find myself uninsured in 3 days, therefore breaking the law, and I have no confidence that ebike insurance has the systems or competence to handle a claim should the need arrise.

“E bike, Customer service dept”

Written on: 20/05/2014

My issue with e bike was due to having an accident on a weekend and trying to report this. I rang the claim number 0845 ----- where you were given 3 options, after choosing the option I needed the call was supposed to transfer to the claims dept but instead went this number not recognised. Tried again same issue, rang the call centre where the operator was apologetic and said she would transfer me to correct line. Unfortunately wrong company but at least she tried. Rang call centre again this… Read Full Review

“Non existent customer service - impossible to complain”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by EdwinMcCall (1 review written)

I had the misfortune to insure two bikes with these clowns a few years ago - a Yamaha and a Suzuki. The Yamaha was written off in an accident which was not my fault (car driver admitted liability and was cautioned by the police. Took nearly a year to get my money. But that's not the best of it. Oh no. This year, decided to sell the Suzuki, which has never been the subject of any claim and has never had an accident. Guess what? They have recorded it on the HPI database as written off -so I… Read Full Review

“Terrible Customer Service”

Written on: 19/04/2014 by RyleighClayton (1 review written)

Cancelled insurance after paying in full. I apparently still owe them money shocked but I paid that as well. I have insured with them for many years and never claimed. I complained and was told a reimbursment cheque is in the post/a cheque has been now sent recorded delivery/your bank account will be credited etc etc. Still no joy I get the feeling they would be utterly pointless in an accident claim and I have now gone elsewhere for my insurance… Read Full Review

“fee suddenly owed”

Written on: 11/04/2014 by Neveahw220 (1 review written)

I took out motorcycle insurance with ebike last April. I cancelled the policy and chose to have it end after the final direct debit was paid. This may or not have been exactly one year after the policy was taken out, but in any case ebike have just informed me I owe them £44. I am unsure how they have come to this conclusion because after making the final payment panacea finance emailed to confirm they have received full payment owed. I am now in an email battle with customer services… Read Full Review

“Good value but customer service :00!?”

Written on: 31/03/2014 by Coughlinsv342 (1 review written)

Well my husband an I have used Ebike for several years always got the best quote renewal. Hubby had a bike stolen and couldn't have been happier with the service. However trying to email/contact them is another matter, I'm not sure whether the staff actually read the emails I've sent them. We had a minor accident NOV 13 in our car on another policy and was notifying them of the claim. I sent them the online form and they wanted details, sent more details, they sent same form back asking for… Read Full Review

“Best quote by far”

Written on: 07/03/2014 by huskywalker6 (1 review written)

My bike is modified, so some won't even quote, and others see you as an easy target to rip off. I've been with ebike for a good few years now. Every renewal I get quotes from other companies for comparison but as yet no one has beat them. My modifying days are over,as I've owned the bike 15 years and don't need to do anything else to it, but my riding days aren't. As long as I get decent quotes from ebike I see no reason to move.I've never had a reason to claim, happily, so I can't comment on… Read Full Review

“Dire customer service”

Written on: 19/02/2014 by Rachel2014 (2 reviews written)

My father, who died last year, was insured with this company. Obviously I wanted to cancel his policy after he died. After telephoning customer services on their incredibly expensive phone line, I was advised to email a copy of the death certificate to their customer services email address. This I did, but received no response for 10 days. I sent another. This merely got an automated response, saying they could not respond to the email and to use an online form instead. Filled in the online… Read Full Review

“5th year and 5 bike changes or additions”

Written on: 11/02/2014 by VinnieB (1 review written)

Like most things in life it would seem there are different views on this Insurance site. I have to say when I first started with them there was a slight delay in them finding/accepting my NCD which was over 20 years. However since that small hiccup everything has been fantastic. As you can see from the title I regularly change or add bikes. I have a machine that I only ride in summer and bike I ride all year round and being able to switch to third Party fire and theft on one of them is great… Read Full Review
