Have just moved to near the area (SE11) and have subsequently had to update all insurance, water, electricity etc. and additional two sets of car insurance. Everything has been going along fairly swimmingly. Managed to find a good deal on contents insurance, but...
One of the car insurance policies has gone up £20 per month and the other has gone up nearly £25 per month. One of the policies is due to expire in December, and I'll definitely be shopping around for something cheaper, but I'm still in shock!
I'm presuming that car crime must be huge (argh!). Does anybody have experience with their care insurance premium rising when moving to this area?
It may not be the just the level of crime increasing the risk to your underwriters. Factors such as the density of vehicles, and drivers visiting who are unsure of local roads may affect our premiums. If you want a real shock, try asking how much it costs to insure a Luton sized removals van for commercial use.
Agree with all previous statements.
Elephant.co.uk offered me a very good deal, which I quoted to my current Insurer, Diamond, who gave me a better rate. So Admiral subsidiaries are definitely recommended from me!
