Hi Stu

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

That's great, thank you for buying the policy from us biggrin The policy can be transferred to the new owner if you sell the car privately as long as they are eligible for the cover and you let us know within 14 days of the transfer of ownership - there is a small fee of £30.00 to do this.

I hope that helps and if you have any other questions please let me know!

Thanks,
Katie

wavey Hello ALA people

I'm currently looking at your Gap Insurance, do you happen to do a package with other more cosmetic insurances as well?

Hi ThisInJapanese!

Thanks for your message.

I'm really sorry, we don't currently offer the cosmetic insurances at the moment and so we're not able to provide any information/quotations for them weeping

Hopefully we can still help out with the GAP insurance thumbup

Thanks,
Katie

Just got a quote for the lease vehicle I have on the way. Seems like a no-brainer, this.

Hi

Looking to purchase GAP for my new Lease, I'm an existing customer.

Any reason why PISTON12 & MSE25 are only giving 5% off?

Give them a call and speak to them over the phone, they've always been really helpful when I've spoken to them.

Hi. Looking for a mechanical warranty for my BMW, do I qualify for the discount if I quote Piston12?
Thanks

Hi 550Anniv

Thanks for your time on the phone earlier - as mentioned the Piston12 discount is for the GAP policy primarily and the maximum discount we can offer on the warranty is 10% - this is just because the prices are already really competitive woohoo

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Katie

Just a quick question, I had black box insurance with hastings from September till December (4 months) but then decided to cancel it and get insured with churchill with no black box. Would I have a hear no claims bonus in September or will I have to wait till December, there wasn't a single day that i wasn't insured as i insured with churchill and cancelled on the exact same day with Hastings.

Hi LorryJumper

Thanks for getting in touch.

I'm not too sure about this one as we don't offer standard motor insurance. The best thing i can suggest is to speak to the insurers involved and they should be able to give you the right information biggrin

Sorry I couldn't be more help and hope you get it sorted.

Thanks,
Katie

Hi Guys

If I have been working abroad for a couple of years and have just come back to the UK does it mean I answer the car insurance question "How long have you been resident in the UK" as one day if I arrived back yesterday?

The online forms seem to just give the option of a date. So if I am for example, 56 years old, have owned the same house for the last 30 years and were born here, I have still been resident in the UK for 1 day given the above circumstances?

Many thanks

Berni

Hope some PHers can give you some guidance on this berni29, with us not offering car insurance I'm not really certain of the answer to this. It would be worth checking with the insurer in question if you're not sure, just to avoid invalidating any cover - or paying more than you need to if it affects premium!

It's only an educated guess so please don't hold me to this but if you've had a British passport and been classed as a British citizen while you've been away you'd think the answer would be still "from birth" confused

Hope you get the answer soon either way biggrin

Thanks,
Katie

Hi Katie

Thank you for the reply. I have used a broker (A-Plan) who have spoken to the underwriter and resolved the issue to my satisfaction.

All the best
