I put in a quote for a 182 on Elephant to see if I can afford it - £700 with my girlfriend as a named driver, parked in flat residential car park. We are both 24 and I have never had my own insurance policy. Pretty pleased at that quote
I just got a fantastic quote from Elephant on my 172. I was going to stay with Admiral but theyve been dragging their heels a bit on my renewal so it looks like elephant have come and stolen it from under their nose!
One question for anyone who is currently with Elephant: What are they like on mods? Is it the usual 5 or so percent increase or do they really not like modified cars???
Ive got a set of coilovers ready to go on, but when I tried to check how much extra it would be on their website it just kept telling me to ring them. Obviously Im not going to ring them now just to be kept on hold for half an hour, so I thought Id be lazy and ask on here! So, can anyone answer my question?

Insured with elephant at the moment, just till my policy runs out then Im jumping ship as I dont have any faith in their claims procedures. Off to Direct Line in August and its a load cheaper too. Z
I had to make a claim through Admiral last year (same company as Elephant) and it went through pretty smoothly considering. Have you heard some horror stories that have put you off?
J13EOB: Admiral were by far the cheapest for me until I tried Elephant and they undercut them by £100! Car insurance is a f**king weird business!
I think they often overcharge people on the renewals. Cos you are signed up for the next year without asking its hasel trying to cancel it. I bet a lot of people dont even bother to look around, leaving the insurance company to make a nice earning.
Rick, I have heard a couple of people who had problems with them ,but i suppose you get that with all insurance companies and generally most companies who deal direct with the public. Nobodys in the business of handing cash out, but Ive always felt its much harder to claim (or get a decent value for your car) with the budget companies. Just my two cents anyway.
yeah they do charge more for mods that you have done but will only return car to manufacturers spec!! aparantly wheels and exhaust make it look nicer to steal and engine mods increase chance of crashing thats y they charge more, they wont replace them robbing mailto:b@stards">bstards the lot of them
well my insurance runs out in a month, ive had loads of quote from varios brokers and the cheepest 1 i could find was just short of £1400, elephant were last people to try and they have quoted me £805, thats pretty awsome i thought but also thought is it to good to be true???
