Bike Insurance - please advise (again :-)
« on: January 19, 2017, 03:41:11 pm »
Dawgs

I need advice please.

I know that every now and again a thread comes to life with regards to bike insurance. I can probably search for it in the archives…

However as a refresher can a few dogs please recommend a good (a.k.a cheap)  O0 broker/insurance company for bike insurance. After being with my current broker for around five years + I picked up a scrap with them today (nothing to do with a claim) which i.m.o just related to poor service.

Please recommend someone and perhaps as a benchmark if you don’t mind, mention the premiums that you are currently paying...

Thanks and best regards.

Operator is the guy, He has been so helpful, polite & professional right through and even found a panel beater for me close to where I live.  I made a claim today. :deal:

My vehicles are all insured with Outsurance.  We have never had any issues.  Late last year my 2015 R1200GS LC was damaged in an altercation with a "I did not see you" car.  Long story, short while the damage seemed minimal, the frame and sub-frame was bend.  Not economical to repair.  The whole process took about 5 - 6 working days and was completely painless from when I called to register the claim, to the pay-out.  My vote is firmly with Outsurance.

All my bikes, 4x4, house etc. are insured through Tuff-Stuff. Never had any issues claiming and they are consistently cheaper than anyone else out there, including representatives on this forum.

Goeie f*k tjom. Vertel jou storie iewers, maar wat jy nou doen beteken f*kkol nie.

Van wanneer af maak die versekering jou voertuig reg?

Idk about that. They quoted me close to R500 more a month than I'm currently paying. I'm with a forum member....
