“Del boy insurance ”

Written on: 04/10/2017 by Gavt123 (1 review written)

My insurance was cancelled after just under a month due to me having trouble getting all the proof of no claims/driving license etc, I had paid a £115 deposit now I've had a email saying I owe another £103 for the months policy and cancellation fees which is ludicrous. To make things worse I am getting letters from their credit company saying I owe them a months payment as I cancelled the direct debit once the insurance was cancelled luckily they say if I don't pay £65 I will have to pay… Read Full Review

“Worst company ever”

Written on: 20/04/2017 by Jane.campbell (1 review written)

Worst insurance company ever, firstly having purchased car insurance online I then had to spend 25 minutes on the phone going over everything I had already answered online before I was covered. Was then charged an extra £112 which was taken from my account with no warning or authorisation. Telephone staff where rude and incompetent and when I asked how much the cancellation fee was I was told it wouldn't benefit me to cancel and the operator hung up. I tried to call back 4 more times and… Read Full Review

“A "first" in woeful service”

Written on: 15/09/2016 by Jillian113 (1 review written)

Moved address. Used online comparison site, as always, for ease & speed. First came up cheapest. Wouldn't accept full payment online stating I needed to telephone them. Then spent 45 minutes on phone, at my expense, going through same information I supplied online, without an explanation of why I had to phone in first place. Then told I "failed" validation check on my address, despite providing evidence for this, which incurred a charge of £60+ . By this time I was tired & fed up and agreed… Read Full Review

“Not simple at all”

Written on: 21/07/2016 by Saunderste497 (1 review written)

I took this policy out online, for quickness. It was everything but that, ended up in several phone calls and missed calls. And then the email you all the documents, and ask for several other documents to be sent to them. After taking a massive deposit so you can not get out of the insurance. I would not use this company again. Once this year is up. No straight forward or easy at all. It is not advertised clearly that they are a Brooker and I would advise always to go direct to supplier because… Read Full Review

“Very good in price”

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

I'm very happy about "First Insurance". Prices are affordable, even for me, who had just 2 years NCB. And customer service is on top level. They was very kind, got the best deal and explained everything. For me was easy to communicate with staff member. My 1st language isn't English, but I understood everything by the end of our conversation. Because staff explained or repeated in simpler sentences. So far, everything is O.K… Read Full Review

“House Insurance Renewal”

Written on: 03/05/2016

Fresh House Insurance was selected for me through a comparison website. The quoted price was substantially lower than my previous provider. When I called to pursue my enquiries I was hugely impressed by the quality of the staff: friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the products and just thoroughly professional. I was able to complete the arrangements over the phone very quickly and easily. I have no hesitation in recommending Fresh to anyone looking for a new provider… Read Full Review
