Hi I am having a nightmare with Adrian flux. I was given a van, I insured it with said company under the campervan policy, it needed a new mot so took it for the mot and it failed badly, son I stuck it up for sale on gumtree around 10 July 2018, young lad come and bought it on 14 july , the log book was singed by previous owner for me to send off in my name but due to all the work it needed I sold it and sent the log book off with new keepers details on, I get a phone call from a Adrian flux on 22nd August saying because I cancelled policy early I owed a outstanding balance of 174.06 and because my new car was insured by them was told if I didn't pay it they would cancel my car insurance, so I paid by visa over the phone to them. Well in January this year I get a email saying I owe 249.99 (ish). For a accident on 9 August 2018 say. I don't even own the van at the time and i have tried contacting dvla for proof I had sold it but because it was not in my name they can't give me the info for the insurance company.
I am so worried and don't know what to do.
HELP!!!!

Again for balance, used A-Plan for my R33 skyline they were great, then when I switched to the Celica GT4 they didnt want to know and were really unhelpful. Chris Knott insured the Celica but then their price was poor even when reduced for renewal and I switched to AF, used them for a year no problems at all price is excellent and their service in terms of all the mods spot on.

Like anything, people will have bad and good experiences, the idea that everyone must avoid AF because another company will be just brilliant all the time is something of a fallacy! And with anything you sign, always read what you are signing up to so there are no nasty surprises lurking.

I have had mixed experiences with AF. Before I had my MX5 I had a Fiesta. AF were one of the companies I got a quote from for it. For a 1.25 (they classed as 1.3 fair enough) the best they could quote was £3700. I was 26 with 7 years NCD at the time. That car ended up being insured with direct line for £600. When I got the MX5 I knew AF were a sports/modded car friendly company so I thought I would give them another chance. The first year I had the car they wernt too far off the best price but I went somewhere else anyway. The last 2 years though they have been by far the cheapest coming in at over £100 cheaper than the next best. A lot of the time price isnt everything and they do have a bad reputation for their customer service but I have recently bought a house so I just went with whatever was cheapest.

Got a quote from AF for my 17 year old son in a Land Rover 90 with quite a few off road mods, quote was £10,000 for a £4000 car banghead

My guess is they factor in a total write off for the third party should it be involved in an accident. :-)
