T5D5 CAR INSURANCE SCHEME WITH PRESTIGE KEEP MOVING INSURANCE

164 posts in this topic

WE VIEW YOU AS A BETTER DRIVER!

Ben (V70Ben) has linked up with us so that we can offer you competitive car insurance quotes as we have a fantastic car insurance scheme for the registered users of car enthusiast forums, and that is mainly due to 4 things –

  1. There are very few exclusions on the scheme! It starts at age 19, and includes all postcodes (including Northern Ireland), and all modifications (except nitrous).
  2. The premiums have to be competitive. We underwrite 14,000 units in the office per month!
  3. We have an excellent phone answering system! An overhead computer screen changes to red when a call is on hold, alerting the manager and the Chief Executive! We have a great emphasis on answering calls!
  4. We have an excellent Claims Accident Management company.

We’ve already had these posted on forums –

  • I'd just like to add that they did me a fantastic price for the renewal, knocking £400 off my mega £995 renewal fee
  • Had my renewal through from .... at £880!!! Call Prestige and spoke to Jade who was v helpful and got my quote down to £670! Brilliant. Highly recommended guys.
  • Did me a great deal on my modified turbo. £450 fully comp ;).
  • Just had a fantastic quote of these guys, previous best was £1040 and they just quoted £825
  • Just wanted to say great customer service none of that jargon talk just straight forward and friendly and very helpful
  • Recommend this insurance company i am paying £1200 fully comp prestige quoted me £490 fully comp , am changing very soon thanks prestige

But the main reason we can offer this scheme to you is because people who are registered on car forums are viewed as better drivers which allows us to offer cheaper premiums. This has been borne out statistically which makes users of this forum a desired ‘niche’ for our insurance company. We want to attract you as a customer!

I will take an active part each day answering questions you may have about insurance. My sole job is to maintain this scheme so each question should get a quick response unless I am in a meeting!

So if you’re aged 19 or over and you need a quote, please call us on 0800 3308057 or 0333 4001580 (which is a landline number and should be used if ringing by mobile as it can be included in any free minutes) or ring when your car insurance renewal is due.

We are open Monday-Friday 9am-8pm and Saturdays 9am-4pm.

When ringing, please don’t forget to mention this forum to get a competitive quote as this scheme is geared for forum users of car clubs.

Please feel free to view our latest feedback that I've put on a temporary holding page - www.carclubsinsurance.co.uk - whilst we redesign our website!

Hi to all!

Please don’t forget to ring us for a quote if your car insurance is due in December!

Here’s some feedback from the last few weeks –

  • Good service with a very good quote, cheaper by a large amount than ‘X’(who I am with now), ‘X’ = £770. Prestige = £550!!

  • The quote worked out at about 10% less than any other similar quote with the same amount of excess etc. The service was quick and very professional, all sorted within 20 minutes. Highly recommended.

  • I had just done my insurance on my P11 GT this year, changing companies in the process, when I had the opportunity to purchase a P10 eGT. One of my major concerns was what the cost of insurance was going to be. As most of you will know, if you insure a second car, your insurance on it starts with NO no claims bonus. After trying the company the P11 GT is with, AND several others, all were talking telephone numbers & putting silly restrictions on a poor 61 year old guy, who only wanted a project in his spare time. (thats me by the way). I thought I would try Prestige & steeled myself for a long winded phone call, the obligatory thousand questions followed by a pause in which time stands still, followed by the disappointment of another astronomical figure. Six or seven questions later, and hardly a pause in the conversation, I had a quote ! I had to ask for it to be repeated, then I asked if they were sure ? They were, and I took the quote up there and then ! Prestige had managed to find me a company that would give me no claims discount, even on a new policy ! I paid little more for the P10 eGT than I was paying for the P11 GT with ten years plus no claims.In short, these guys worked out well for me. My gratitude goes to Tony. Quick, efficient, helpful, we even managed a few laughs in the conversation !
    Take it from me guys 'n' gals, this is insurance with a human touch ! I would encourage anyone who needs a quote to give Prestige a ring, after all, what have you got to lose ? They may save you money !

  • I've just rung up for a quote on the Astra in my sig below. You're the cheapest at £695 fully comp.

  • I have now taken out my Insurance through Prestige and Ill give you some information to make a descision for yourself. 25 year old Male 8 years NCB IAM member SP30 May 2012 - 3 points and a £60 fine Fully Comprehensive Social, Domestic and Pleasure plus commuting to and from a single fixed place of work.10,000 miles a year Modifications declared 12months Insurance came in at £525 from Prestige, which was £70 cheaper than confused.com. I then added the breakdown cover for £50 so my total premium for 12months insurance and breakdown cover is £575 which is still £20 cheaper than any confused.com quote. I added the breakdown cover as it was half what the ‘X’ wanted to renew with them (I have been with ‘X’ for 8years!)
    I am happy with that. :-) Thanks very much Prestige.

Dunno, but it'd be a brave man to use Ben's moniker without aforethought or an OK popcorn4jj.gif

They'll be on my list for a call next week as it's that time of year again. Be assured what feedback I give will be warts 'n all.

I've just called them and my quote was ok as I have quite a modified 854..

I spoke to a guy called David and he was polite and friendly, unlike some other brokers, all in all a pleasant experience,

Please note that if you are wishing to insure a ‘performance’ vehicle on our scheme, then you must have at least a year’s experience of driving that or a similar bhp car.

Gave them a bell this Friday. Modded D5 comes in £60 cheaper than CK. Just waiting for CM to come back to me before I decide what to do. CK give me a spanking deal on the T5 so don't want to put that in jeopardy.

Congratulations to Chris Woodward of Focusrsoc.com who won our £50 Prize Draw!!! (Chris permitted us to publish his name). We will hold another draw around March time.

Thanks also to those who have rung us for a car insurance quote in December. October was our record month but we are on course to beat that which is great considering December is historically a quieter month for renewal dates!

Here’s just a bit of feedback from the last 4½ weeks –

  • Just gave Prestige a call and so far they have the best renewal quote. 1st year the ST was £1k, 2nd £750, 3rd £650 and 4th was £600 - they have just quoted £395 with bonus points and mods declared so quite impressed after the very small drop last year and not bad when I'm still just 26.
  • Just sorted the scala with prestige, saved over £120 compared to renewal note from existing broker. Well worth a call.
  • Spoken to these guys today, and they are to say the least fantastic! Extremely friendly, and have saved me loads on insurance. Incredibly happy, and would recommend to anyone!
  • Prestige were so helpful and quick and quoted me 177 a month which is the cheapest I have found on pay monthly plans! I’m with the above insurance n there a top company.
  • Prestige saved me almost £100 from the best quote I've had so far . £550 for living in N10 is great price as I had to pay around £900 last year. I've also tried ‘X’ again (don't know why as last year they quoted me £1200) and their best was just over a grand (insane). I'd like to thank Dave from Prestige who knew what he was talking about with no nonsense questions and he was the only agent I spoke to during my call and he did called me back as promised.

Please don’t forget to ring us if your car insurance renewal is due in January!

Normally one of the quietest months, December was our second best month of 2012!

 

January has started well also - this feedback was posted yesterday evening:

 

  • Very impressed. I hardly ever advertise products/services that I use. Of course by the early part of January my mind turns to Car Insurance. Well the nights are only just starting to draw out, and there's not a lot on the Television. I had my quote from my current provider, and yet again I'd said that I was changing. I'd visited comparison websites....Emailed the people at PRESTIGE KEEP MOVING CAR INSURANCE, and left them my details. The did try and ring me this morning - but I was at work. Rang them this evening, and spoke to a very nice girl called Chelsea. The quote was just over £35 cheaper than my current provider - BUT WITH ALL THE MOD'S, and coming in at about £40 than a very good policy provided by a well known car insurer. To get probably the best policy I have ever had for the Xsara, and at the cheapest price, I reached for the Debit Card. Oh, and I didn't have to wait on hold, listening to a recorded message on how my call was important to them.

 

Here is some other recent feedback -

 

  • With the discount applied to forum users it's not only the best quote so far, but the flexibility of payment options and REALLY good interest rate on monthly instalments means I shall be calling you guys as soon as my car gets it's MOT. Also, thanks to Jane at your call-centre for being so darn helpful!  
  • Highly recommend, excellent quote with mods. Nice to actually speak to an insurance company that actually understand your car and needs without the silly quotes!
  • Phoned today as needed rapid cover for a ( new to me ) car which i need to collect 300+miles away over weekend. Prestige could not have been better. The young lady was brill all done by mobile when driving from Surrey to Devon - price very, very good. Considering I have had company cars for several years and only started using my own car since 2011, recommend to anyone. Please give them a try and do yourself a favour.  
  • I spoke with Nikki.  Very nice and very helpful.  Definitely not your typical insurance company.  
  • Ria saved a small fortune with a very competitive quote from this broker.  
  • Looking good, almost a 50% cut on the quotes I've had so far for the fiesta.

 

Please give us a call! 0800 3308057 or 0333 4001580 if ringing by mobile.

I was shocked to see a recent poll stating that 41% of people hadn’t or wouldn’t declare the modifications on their car to their insurers! Amazing!

Please always declare mods – we are mod-friendly anyway!

Hi to all

 

We’ve been receiving quite a few requests for quotes recently from people who have seen the good feedback about our scheme but who are only halfway through their current policy elsewhere.

 

I would just ask if people could call us at renewal time as firstly, we can then give precedence to people who need insurance, and secondly because people generally lose quite a bit financially if they cancel policies mid-term due to cancellation rates & fees. Also, premiums can change on a monthly basis.

 

We will always endeavour to save you money and provide the best service we can but it’s better all round if it’s at renewal!  

 

Here is some recent feedback!

  • Thank you guys, just started a new policy, cheapest around and good policy details too....one happy customer here. Fully comp, all mods, business use, and confirmed 205bhp from 136bhp.
  • Just taken out insurance with prestige today. My renewal from was £722. £150 excess and no mods declared. Prestige quoted me £600 with £400 excess, with new alloys, lowered 50mm all round and gti leather interior, all covered like for like. Mk2 saxo vtr (2001), I'm 33 with 3 years ncb. Had other quotes in excess of £1200, so overall I'm very pleased.
  • Can't recommend these guys enough, just been on the phone to them again, really friendly, very helpful, and they'll actually insure my Astra when i've finished supercharging it.
  • Big thanks to Prestige who have blown everyone else out of the water with their quote on my civic! Looks like I'm with you for the next 12 months.
  • WOW - Phoned up Prestige. Told them my renewal price and the lovely Chelsea said she didn't think they could beat it as it was quite low already (surprise surprise!) She then said she was faxing the underwritters and getting back to me. A phone call later and she has managed to reduce my premium by 20%!!!!! Fantastic news. In short, give them a ring. Phoned my existing insurer and they can't/won't move on price.
  • I was surprised at the quote I got. £1400 with modifications declared, & I was getting £1450+ with no modifications before.

Can you guys quote for someone aged 81? - My Dad's renewal has just come through and it's pretty steep in my opinion.

 

His car isn't modified BTW :D

Please don’t forget to ring us for a quote if your car insurance is due for renewal in February!
January (historically the quietest month) was our equal 2nd best month for policies ever! And here is some recent feedback to reflect this –
 

  • I just want to say how very happy i am to now be covered by prestige! They offered me the cheapest quote and declaring all of my modifications! I would recommend them to anyone with a modified car!
  • I just been on the phone to you guys. Just want to say was very happy with my quote. Managed to bring me down by half what I'm paying now. Also managed to beat every quote I have had online so
    I will be taking my cover out with this lot when my actual renewal date comes around. Also would like to say great customer service on the phone too and when had to be put in hold was not kept on hold for too long. Even when I first rang up and was on hold and someone answered but everyone was still busy that dealt with quotes guy took my number and called me back within 5 mins. I'm very impressed I would most definitely recommend anyone on here to give them a call when due day comes. Cheers.
  • Just had a quote from you guys - I'm a first time driver so have been getting silly quotes until i rang you.
  • My renewal came through at £617 which was ok as i paid £700 last year so phoned up, had a chat with a guy called David, and we managed to get it down to £545, not too shabby as its the cheapest insurance i have had in about 5 years.

Winter Tyres

 

I’ve been asked about our stance on these so I thought I would add
this to our thread.

There is no charge for these on our insurance scheme and we don’t
need to be notified when they are changed, provided that they meet, and are
fitted in accordance with, the vehicle manufacturers’ specifications, and are
in a roadworthy condition.
