Just renewed with CN: 3 x Classic scoots 1961 to 1969, 125 to 250cc, £158 FC inc European breakdown.

I've found CN over the years (many)

1) Very helpful in an event: a full 10/10 (2 events)

2) A little bit pesky around renawal time: I don't blame them to do so given the solid service they have delivered and not blagging about it.

3) Accomodating: Eg. last renewal I announced that the S2 had gone from 186 to 198cc, it was 'yep, noted. your premium is not affected'

4) When I 'happened' into the boot of a Micra 3 years ago, as she had run into the side of a Megane they were so efficient I had absolutely no interruption to my normal routine: Virtualy little sitting for hours listening to menu choices compared to most.

Unfortunately, what I did not find available was an optional 'windscreen' addition to the policy sufficient to cover my original Wipac, so I disposed of it. God forbid the consequences!

Actually Barry@Bikesure. If you can better this, refund my cancelation admin and guarantee thet you can match or better this policy premium on the same basis for the next 5 years, at the the above service levels, I'll buy 5 years worth off you tomorrow!

Barry, thanks for the welcome and the info. I'm sure you'll have lots of interest on here.

You'll have to forgive a few of our members though......not all of them are mentally stable, and a few like our friend Yanker like to add a bit of humour to their posts. ;) lol

Its just a bit of fun, but why not see if you can call his bluff and offer him a 5 year policy! Lol :)

Ha! I wouldn't worry, I'm sure it will be me apologising for my mental instability before the year is out!

I'd just like to point out that I am in fact relatively mentally stable...

Sounds very good Yanker!

I'll leave you for this year but if you do find yourself having any trouble in the future, then feel free to let me know and I'll give it a bash.

Cheers

The criteria is simply to be a member of the forum.

Whether you get up 25%/20%/15% ect depends on the scheme that is quoting on your risk details.

Feel free to let us know when your renewal is due and we'll see how we fair.

Cheers
