Advice needed on Car Insurance (UK) 21 year old male.?

I’m in a tricky position with being tarnished with the ‘Young Driver’ brush, I completely understand the young driver statistics but am in need of a car as cheap as possible! I work 10 miles from home and it takes an hour and a half on two buses, compared to a 25 minute drive! The cheapest I can get a quote in my own name is about £4000 for a class 1-3 car, tried tweaking all the details and doesn’t make much difference. New cars seem to be the better option in terms of short term cost, but the Free Insurance details all require a year old two no claims, which I don’t yet have. Out of desperation I’ve started looking at Telematics policies, I can’t work with a curfew or milage limit which hasn’t left me with many companies to chose from, have had a quote for £1600, but then have the cost of finance to pay for on said car! Does anyone know of any companies or anything that can help? Don’t really want to go for a Black Box, just want a car to drive to work in and do the weekly shop in. There must be a company somewhere that doesn’t charge through the roof? £4000+ is just a joke. Thanks.

Temporarily disabling car insurance? Possible?

Hi. Im 17, joining the army soon and going to ship to basic training after i finish high school – at around July/2010. Right now, Im getting a car, liability insurance only. So ill need insurance for the car for 8 months before i ship. Im going to be away for 6 months for basic and advanced training. 6 months of paying insurance would cost be around 1300$. Seems a waste to pay if im not even driving it while im away. Would i be able to tell my insurance company to temporarily discontinue insurance when im away? Or if i cancel the policy, does the RI DMV request the plates? If not, i could keep it on the street while im away. If they do request the plates, what should i do? I mean i would have to pay taxes on it all over again, pay for insurance downpayment, then registration fees which is all over like 1000$. What could i do in my situation?

Need some more options – pregnant with no insurance?

Recently my husband and I moved. He will be going to school and working part time and I am switching jobs. I recently got pregnant and because of all this pre-existing crap, can’t get insurance. Cobra is way more expensive than just paying flat out for the pregnancy but we want to have something in case of complications. OTHER than Medicaid, is there any insurance that might cover me?

How should someone get their car insured so I can get my driver’s license with the car, if they will be giving me the car right after?

So I’m trying to get my driver’s license for the first time. My dad is going to be giving me his car very soon, but it is uninsured. Is there a kind of temporary insurance he can get so that I can take my driving test in the car, then I can obtain my own insurance when I finally own the car? Or some kind of insurance that he can get that I can transfer over into my name with a simple rate adjustment? Should I just try to use someone else’s car? I live in Illinois if that helps.

Health Care Insurance Costs are soo high!?

My wife is 28 years old, I’m 29 and non of our employers offer health insurance benefits. We’re forced to pay for our own at $300 a month! That’s $3,600 a year… it’s too much for us considering we only visit the doctor once a year. I’m tempted to discontinue it but then again its tough not to have any health insurance at all. Any suggestions???

Leaving my car on a UK road without insurance?

I do not want to get insurance on the car anyway during this time as it would only be 3rd party and it is expensive in comparison to the cars value. There will be people I know around to keep an eye out and make sure nothing happens to it. As no one will be driving it surely it is legal? If it is illegal is it fine to have someone other than the registered owner insured on it for the time I am away?

Once an auto insurance claim is denied, can it be reopened and/or accepted?

I had an auto accident and after interviewing me and looking at my photos taken right after the accident, my insurance company believed that I was not at-fault and denied the other driver’s claim and closed the case. He then claimed he had photos that would prove that I was the one at fault and would mail it to them. If he can somehow prove it, is it possible my insurance company will change their mind and reopen the case? Or once it’s closed, it’s final?


AUTO INSURANCE/COLLISION QUESTION!! Please help!!?

I let my policy lapse. It was cancelled on June 27th. Earlier this evening, I got into a collision, but it WASN’T my fault. The policeman wrote the at-fault ticket for the other driver involved. (She was in a median, halfway in my lane of traffic, so she got the ticket). She DOES have insurance. But since I do not, what are my options?? I want to get my truck fixed. 🙁 Especially since it wasn’t my fault at all….. 🙁 I tried calling my insurance to see if I could reinstate the policy, but that was a no-go. He said since the policy was cancelled, I’d have to seek other insurance and a new policy. What can I do?? Please help. I really need my truck. I’m on the poorer side and can’t afford a $1200 payment to fix it….. is there ANYTHING I can do?? I know nothing about insurance. All help and answers are much appreciated!! THANK YOU!!


Insurance not paying a claim!?

Boy this is a good one & I don’t know what to do Next! I went with the Lizard insurance even though they are Snakes and don’t want to pay for any Claims! It started in 2010 with my truck, I took it to where they told me and they only paid for cosmetic damage even though there was a lot more including my steering was so bad I had to stop driving it. I wanted to take it to a shop that I had my truck lowered which because of we’re I lived and the shop was I couldn’t drive it, 65 miles. I had AAA tow it to my new house and from there after 2 years of not driving my truck they agreed to have it towed 7 miles to the shop. Well I told the claims adjuster what was wrong, he told me I needed to write a list and drop it off at the shop so I just got my Chopper back from the shop and went down to where my truck was a wrote a list of what I thought was wrong. Here is where the first of my troubles started, on the way home I am riding on the freeway and a truck to the right of me had a blow out and a Giant tire flew right in front of me, I couldn’t do anything other than to run it over. It happened so fast, I hit it and made a brown spot in my shorts, jk. I then noticed smoke coming from my Chopper, it was Bad so I pulled over and noticed that my tail light was knocked off and caused some damage and the bold that holds my tail light on came off and rubbed on my new Avon 250 tire and Melted the side wall. I was able to ride home and once I saw all the damage I knew it was a problem. I called the Lizard and made a claim. The claims adjuster called me and said he will be out that Saturday, so saturday came and I never heard from him, I had his number and left a message, so this went on until Thursday and I called the lizard again and they transferred me to the AH boss and I left him a voicemail. Well I didn’t hear from him as a few more days went by so Called back and got his boss’s boss. The next day I got a nasty voicemail from the claims adjuster bitching at me. I called customer service and told them he went off on me and they can hear my voicemail too but no one listened to me. So I was told to call his boss, I said then I don’t want this claims adjuster to come out, I don’t want to speak to him or have anything to do with him. They were so sorry and said they totally understand and later that day the big boss called and I told him I hadn’t heard from the adjuster other than a nasty voicemail and I want someone else to come out and not him. The boss said I understand and he will take care of it. So two days later the rude claims adjuster showed up at my house to take care of the claim, I was shocked it was the AHole I didn’t want to come out but his bosses boss told him he better get out there and take care of this. Well once he was there, he wasn’t as nice as he had been and couldn’t be more rude than he was. I told him what had happened and the Damage, all he said was Prove it, Prove it, Over and over with everything I showed him. It caused major damage to my shocks and front forks, he laughed and said they are designed to roll over things and that it couldn’t happen from hitting a tire in the road, well it can because that’s exactly what happened. He was such a AHole I said, why did you even come out, did you just come here to be a @ss Hole or what!! He didn’t say a word and just left. They paid out just a little for damages to the paint, tail light and the tire. The tired was new and cost 500 but they paid me 100 bucks for it. Mean while my truck is at the shop still to get looked over for the damage and they didn’t pay a dime and the worst part was when I got the truck back from being towed, I started after the tow truck drive let it down and it sounded funny, then I smelt burning plastic so I opened the hood and my entire air intake system was gone!!! The burning was th vacuum hoses laying on the headers. I called the shop where my truck was and they said they are not sure what’s going on but to call back. Well they are no longer in business and I lost all that so I called and opened a claim, now they are investigating me over this. So I have damage from 2010 that has never been fixed, my bike isn’t right and someone had stolen my Volant cold air intake that’s not being taken care of. What do I do? This is BS, I don’t deserve this from my insurance Company and for them to treat me like they have, not pay out the claims. I needed my truck smoged Dec 31st so because all the parts to have it smogged weren’t there I couldn’t have it down and I have a ton of late fees with the DMV in California. My Volant is smog legal, I have the Ca numbers for it but it doesn’t matter, I am getting the run around like no tomorrow. I will Drop GIECO and go with Farmers but not until my truck and bike are fixed. I have called everyone I could at Geico and no help!

Home insurance agent quoted us a check.?

We had a kitchen flood and ruined our hardwood floors and cabinets. Our home insurance adjuster verbally quoted us of getting us an additional #3800 for a kitchen flood in the next week or two. We already got $3000, but said there is another check coming soon of additional $3800. He told us this for a whole week to me and my husband multiple times. Now he is saying he read the paperwork wrong and the total of the whole claim is $3800. What can we do about his mistake? We already put half the money down on new cabinets, sink, flooring and counter tops thinking we were getting more money in the next week. Any advice?


Which insurance is responsible the drivers insurance or Pizza Hut’s?

Last Sunday I was hit, and my car totaled, by a Pizza Hut delivery driver. His personal insurance told me that because he was on the clock he is not covered. So that falls back to my insurance, but I don’t think I should have to pay my deductible just because some kid ran a stop sign. I’d like to find out if he is insured by Pizza Hut while on the job.

Pregnant and scared…?

I just found out I’m pregnant, my boyfriend and I are keeping it and we’re planning to get married. I’m 24 yrs old, I’m in serious debt (I have not been able to get this problem resolved for the last couple of years and I’m considering bankruptcy), he doesn’t have much of a job either….we’re going to try our best with that but I have no idea if I should go through with the bankruptcy or if there’s any other option for me. Also, (even worse) I don’t have insurance at the moment. My work has open enrollment for health coverage in November (I missed it last year cuz I was out of town) so I don’t know what to do there, either. And another problem…..I have yet to tell my parents and theyre gonna kill me. How can I approach/tell them? There are no family members I trust that I can talk to about this and this all really sucks but I really want this baby. Any advice? Please refrain from telling me I’m stupid, because I already know that much, and I’m gonna hear it from my parents.


18 year old and car insurance…help please?

I’ve been saving up the past 3 years to buy myself a car. I’ve saved about 18K for a new car, so my price range is from about 18-24K for a car, new or used. Some cars that I’m interested in are: In Order: 1. 2004 BMW 530i 2. 2004 Infiniti G35 3. 2005 Mercedes C230 4. 2004 Acura TL or RSX 5. 2005 BMW 325i My problem isn’t whether I can afford the car and the maintenance fees, its the insurance. I would be under my fathers insurance. He’s 55, no accidents or tickets, been driving since 16. He would be the primary and I would be the secondary. I go to college, have a 3.8 GPA, work part-time, have been driving since 16, no accidents or tickets, and the car would be parked in a garage. I also wouldn’t be driving much, just to and from school (less than 7500 miles a year). How much would basic insurance be? I hate getting online quotes because its time consuming and I hate getting spam emails and phone calls. I’m thinking of buying the car soon, so please help. THANKS!
