Indeed, that was the only disappointing thing I found when taking my policy out.

SkyInsurance
04-12-07, 14:13
I'm not going to deny that 800 is a significant amount of money on anyones insurance policy, I'm shocked we were so far out on that one.

How long ago was that quote ? Could you give me a few more details on that quote... the excess, was it a 10 month policy etc... we'd like to revisit the quote to see why we were so far out. If you could send me a PM with these details and your full name that would be helpful to us. We are confident we can give you great prices and would like to encourage club members to try us out :thumbs:

We have been pushing to get the agreed value back for a while but as it stands I'm unable to give a definitive answer to that..

With regards to the tracker, we do not ask for a tracker on the majority of our policies, however if the car has a high value we may insist on a tracker being fitted.

Just so we all know the situation re Trackers, what's the "high value" threshold.

Like i said, my car came with the wheels and bodykit, spoiler ect on it.

If i write her off then ill use the cash to buy a RX7 - i wouldnt get another supra.

Id just prefer a payout (god forbid) rather than the hassle and arguing of ''the extras''..... I just want the mods covered for legal reasons, so if i did prang it then they would pay out rather than get told to sod off as i had alloys or a aftermarket bumper on it.

Ive read so much bad stuff about elephant when it comes to paying out, so if you total your car dont expect to get a reasonable pay-off first time, you will have to argue and refuse their offers until they come up with a decent one. Im talking thousands under the market value here.
There is a reason it is so cheap, they are a real pain if the worst comes to the worst, also if by any chance you havnt declared all your mods or missed something by mistake, they have been known to not pay out at all.
Im glad they are so cheap tho as i just take their quote to other insurance companies and tell them to match it!

One thing about Sky is they are great with modifications, Elephant are a pain in the ass, half of the stuff cant be listed, say for example a boost controller and there is loads of other bits i just cant be bothered thinking.
Sky have no problem with mods as long as you list everything, havnt had any extra premium added if i add a mod neither. Oem bodykit etc.

Rayman
04-12-07, 18:38
Dont expect Sky to be cheaper for every single supra owner, there is too many variables involved, its like me with Adrian Flux, i cant get a decent quote of them at all, wheras some people on here have got good quotes from them.

04-12-07, 18:40
I will give you another chance when renewal time comes round.whent with adrian flux this time 350 cheeper with agreed evaluation.

SkyInsurance
04-12-07, 18:47
I'm glad to see our rates are getting better. As mentioned above by Rayman (spot on post :cool: ) there are many variables with insurance quotes, all cases are different but as long as you are over 23 with ownership we should be there or there abouts with the price.

We like to think that our personal service and Supra knowledge puts us head and shoulders above the competition, and we are the official Club Insurer after all.

04-12-07, 19:05
As said above, Elephant are pretty useless with mods - the price goes up a lot when you declare them and trying to explain to the chimp on the other end of the phone that your wheels/exhaust/whatever are aftermarket and not "Toyota optional extras" is hard work. And they try to rip you off with your renewal.

I got a quote with Sky about 3 weeks ago and the bloke I spoke to was helpful and knew what he was on about, but unfortunately the quote was 1150 more than A-Plan...

Hey guys, got a snotty letter from you today saying if you dont get the details within 7 days of the date on the letter, you'll keep all my money and cancel the policy.

1. I've not had an previous reminders.
2. Thats a bit harsh !

While I admit, I've not sent them back yet, because I was waiting for my license to come through as I've moved plus I've been very busy.

Also, I didnt mention my membership when I got my quote, do I get the 20%?

Will call you tomorrow.

The service has been pretty good for me during the last 2 years. I've had a couple of issues but they have been handled well after a phone call.

Even with my BMW tank (which initially had a renewal quote of 980) they managed to match my best quote and reduced it to 280. Seemed to be some sort of mix up on the renewal and was quoted for a single Supra.

I had the same situation following my 2nd renewal last year, even though I'd sent details 2 weeks earlier. A call to Sky sorted it and I was told all was fine and to ignore the letter.

I've found that any problem I've had has been solved with a phone call.

Sky won't be able to provide the best quote (or even a good quote) in all curcumstances, but thats the insurance business for you. They generally appear to be better catered for older (23+), more expeienced drivers, but thats fair enough when dealing with high powered RWD cars.

05-12-07, 00:06
I was a bit cheesed off when I sorted my renewal out in August, Adrian Flux quoted me 396 including agreed value, Sky initially said 6XX but then that they would "match" Adrian Flux - except that the agreed value would be an extra 70. So not matching them at all, then. I left Sky as a result :( although I was happy prior to this. I now wonder if I've had value for money cover in the 2 years prior to this as I was always happy to support "the club's insurer" without shopping around that much.

Hey guys, got a snotty letter from you today

Hi,

this is standard procedure with any insurance company. By law we need to receive all of the required documentation. We send you a letter and some forms to fill out initially, on the letter it states that the forms will need to be returned within 7 days. After 14 days if we haven't received the forms we will send out a politely worded reminder letter, it is certainly not a 'snotty' letter. After a further 7 days we would send out a more strongly worded letter which is sent by recorded delivery. Communication is crucial here, if you are missing a piece of documentation we can quite happily give a time extension, all it takes is one phone call to our customer service team for this to happen. Also, again a quick PM to myself with your full name and policy number is a great way of communicating on any issues like this.

Thanks

In a nutshell, yes.

05-12-07, 14:04
I've just had my renewal docs through from sky and been delighted that the premium has hardly budged from last year. OK, the agreed value has increased but I think this is small price to pay for, what has been for me, an excellent, friendly and FLEXIBLE company.

An added bonus for me was that I have taken them up on their breakdown cover as RAC had increased my cover by around 40% and that after a 10% discount for no claims!!!!! - and saved myself 50 which offsets a lot of the agreed value fee.

New photos will be winging their way to them this weekend for the agreed value but I have been delighted with the service so far.

Thanks sky!! ;)

Could someone from sky let me know why they advertise they do agreed values?

I understand you only do it for existing customers, however should there be something in the advert saying this? i know its a good way of getting new customers to ring up for quotes, but isnt it slightly misleading.

I cant see any small print explaining this, maybe i have just got the wrong end and i am completely wrong?

Look forward to your reply.

SkyInsurance
06-12-07, 11:06
Hi ^ good question.

We have asked for the Banzai advert to be amended so you should not see this in future magazines.

We still advertise the agreed value on our website as it is available for the Classic Car insurance policies we do.

In answer to your question, unfortunately 'returning customers' would be treated as new business so would not be elligible for the agreed value.

no, you've taken that the wrong way. We are happy to answer questions on the forum but that question was going a bit off topic hence why it was probably better asked in a private message. This thread was to notify members that we have some new rates and we should be more competitive, and also a request for members to post up their prices to make sure we remain competive.

We can do classic policies but bare in mind there is quite strict criteria that goes with them as well as the driver not being able to build no claims discount. If the vehicle is over 15 years old, is garaged, mileage is restricted and the customer can provide evidence of a second (or main) vehicle we can certainly look at it. The vehicle would also have to be standard, no mods.

Will Sky be looking for other under writers with more favourable classic policies? I mean it's easy to get classic policies for modded cars over 10 yrs old, without being garaged but limited mileage and no increase in no claims bonus. On the Rotary forums most people are on classic policies as it's much cheaper.

I vowed after my last Supra insurance never to go with Sky due to them being no where near the cheapest insurer. However decided to give them a call re a J-Spec and the insurance was still the same as lasttime :(...........not looking good.

However then the UK spec came up which I got a quote on from the following

Confused.com 761
Adrian Flux 798
Elephant: - 882
Bell : - 637 (1000 excess)
Directline:- 1446

Then I gave Graham a call @ Sky (after this thread came up), all details taken and came back with the cheapest quote out of the lot and thats without even taking the best price so far from me!!

Even just called Richard re an issue with Toyota fitted alarm on how to prove it had one, he quickly looked up on the Thatcham website, gave the details that Michael supplied in previous thread (thank you Michael :d And I believe Matt Harwood for giving the info to Michael) and all done, no need to prove it. I had genuine thoughts it was going to be a complete ball ache.

So well pleased, my insurance has halved and it has installed more confidence in me re Sky. :thumbs:

And would you believe, if I put my girlfriend (who only got a license in 2006) on the policy it gets 50 cheaper, yes cheaper! Insurance companies are nuts.

Will that mean that existing customers that have agreed value won't benefit from better rates, due to being with ensign?
I got quoted 160 less from another company last year, and the only difference was agreed value, it was also way cheaper to go single turbo.

I phoned a guy at Sky called Luke a few days back and he rang me back with a very good quote.

Dissapointed that they didn't offer to cover me at their expense, ;) but the price they quoted, considering my rather long modification list, was certainly the best I've had so far :)

i will get a quote from you guys soon once i get my renewal offer, but last year i was 1750 Third party fire and theft. Car estimated worth at 3k

Im 25, was 24 then.
Will have 1 years no claims from them with my supra
been driving for 3 years

Got a rough quote from them and came back with 1200 fully comp.

Need a cheaper quote than that tho!

What are your criteria though? I have just had a quote from Sky which I consider high looking at the other thread on insturance that is going on. A-Plan are also cheaper. Sky - 680 + vat including all mods with 4k millage limit. Aplan - 495 inc VAT with 5K limit and all mods declaired.

Im 28 with 8 years NCB, clean Licence, car is Garaged, 19" wheels, 95 BPU TT.

Sky beat my renewal quote from A-Plan this year, but then A-Plan came back with an even better quote. No doubt Sky may well have matched that, or maybe even beaten it, but as my insurance ran out today and I was at work yesterday, I couldn't keep ringing around. I stayed with A-Plan as it was easier for me to do so, but you can't knock Sky's service. I'll be trying you guy's again next year. :)

Our minimum criteria is you must be 23 years old or over and have experience of driving a Supra or similar. You obviously meet the criteria but we (Sky) simply cannot offer the best price each and everytime... if we could it would be world domination :)

Please try us again next year and hopefully we'll be more competitive.

Cheers Ollie,

I am somwhat confused by the quote from Sky though. I have received the written quote today and its 680 in all duty and tax. But you quote excluding the discount for members of the club meaning this quote is more than competative with APlan. Im going to call tomorrow to clarify the situation but without explanation or the quote in writing I would not have none that there should be 20% off that price?

Called back 08/01/08 gave them the quote refference number stating wanted to take out the cover out on identical supra but only difference was had 18'' wheels not 19'' wheels was informed that would be 870:blink:!!!!!!!!!! When asked why said because the wheels where different and insurance companies change their quotes. Gave me another company to call that they recomended who quoted me 2500:blink:!!!!!!!!!!!!

Called up adrian flux quoted me better on existing spec and 105 extra for the spec I am changing to single conversion, strutbrace, intercooler, bigger brakes, seats, exhaust etc. Called Sky back for quote on new spec would not provide a quote :tongue:

I cannot explain the lack of call back, my apologies for the bad service you have received there.
If you, or any other member has a problem with communication from Sky, drop me a PM and I will arrange a call back for you. I can usually arrange this within an hour (when I pick up the PM)

We would have had our reasons for not quoting you, possibly your age/lack of experience/postcode... without knowing your details I cannot give you a definitive reason.

I'm happy to find out why we couldn't quote, I'll send you a PM to sort this out.

Ollie - any plans to introduce anything like Direct Line where vandalism damage doesn't have an impact on your NCB?

Hi Micheal,

as we are a broker we are unable to introduce this ourselves, and as such we do not write the policy wording.

The insurance industry as a whole will be looking at what direct line have introduced and may well follow suit if it is something they feel should be included.

My personal view is that it is a fantastic idea to introduce this as why should the customer be penalised for something like this which is beyond thier control.

I PM'd Sky a week ago to notify them that I'll be moving back to London and today I've received a letter from them in the post saying that my premium will increase by 420 quid! :scare:

This is must really be a joke! I believe that I'm already paying way too much for only a third party, theft and fire considering my age, the amount of years I hold a licence and that I've never had an accident or being involved in one before.

Fair enough, there's more dangers in London but the car will be kept on a private carpark off the street.

I think Sky are really taking the p*ss here, I know they're just "the middlemen" but I doubt their abilities to negociate policies with insurers. I mean c'mon, 420 quid for moving from Bracknell to Ealing, total 1500 a year for a third party including the member's discount... Yeah right.

I'm trying to find out if I'll have pay anything for cancelling, does anyone know?

I know some people have had some good experiences with Sky. But I've not once been quoted anything remotely competitve.

They were over on my BMW's and my MR2's, a few hundred. They quoted me double on the M6 compared to A-Plan and blamed it on my postcode. Quite funny, as Steven Gerrard lives 3 roads down, less than 1/4 mile from me.

Seems a case of when they're good, they're good. When they're bad ....

Perfect question to fire at me by PM :p

We do not offer this currently however there is a link on our website to a company who do offer track insurance.

Check policy wording carefully as sometimes you are hit with a few thousand excess in the event of an accident.

How much extra do you have to pay for the agreed value? And how easy is it to get them to agree what you think your car is worth.

Hi,

just to clear this up.. as things stand we are unable offer agreed values for new business customers, we can only offer this for existing customers who had the agreed value last year.

The agreed value option costs 72.50 for the year, the majority of that going to the actual insure for administration costs.

How do we agree a value? We ask the customer to state the value of the car based on how much they would be willing to pay for it (including mods) OR how how much it would sell for, to a like minded car enthusiast. We also ask for colour photos, MOT certificate and we have a list of all modifications. Generally we find that the customer will put down an accurate value for the vehicle.

i was quoted happy by sky, but when i phoned up to check and confirm the details of the quote i was then told i was in a postcode which is excluded by all the insurance companies that they use and that they couldnt quote me at all. so whats the crack there, anyone reccomend anywhere else? IM 30 this year with 5 years no claims and dont appear to be able to get a sensible quote although if i moved 5 miles down the road i would pay half the price.

A quick suggestion - when you send a renewal through the post with the price for the year ahead could you also include the amount paid the year before for comparison?

Or would this put people off?

SkyInsurance
22-05-08, 11:23
I think it would put people off. Especially if the price has increased during the year. Can you imagine filling the car up with petrol and seeing a sign showing the price of petrol last year as a comparison. That would give me the right hump!

22-05-08, 12:31

I dont know if it makes a difference but ive always taken it our every renewal and I think have had it 5 yrs now. So long before they stopped offering it.

I thought Agreed value renewal was only avaliable if you had agreed value year before not just only if you renewed...hence why ive always just taken it. I may be wrong...it wouldnt be the first time.

michael
22-05-08, 12:37
It makes a big difference :)

If you already have it you get to keep it, even if you are a high risk, if you don't have it already then you can't have it.

Unless something has changed, if it hasn't then mentioning it on my renewal is a big stinky tease.

Whitesupraboy2
22-05-08, 12:53
To be honest if it wasnt for agreed value i'd of gone where its cheaper but its just not worth the risk. Id be devastated to crash my car, but at least with agreed value I wouldnt have to worry about the fight to get the money I wanted for it.

Okay... Just a little confused here...(And I'm going to make sure this is transparent for others to see)

Just received notification of my renewal...In the paperwork there are two forms.

1. QBE Renewal invitation which has a premium quoted of 380
2. The sky letterheaded paperwork which contains a nice box with premium 516.00

Spoke to Jason on the phone who said that there are additional addons such as a 21 for uninsured loss, plus some other bits... Firstly they aren't detailed on the form and I like to know what I'm paying for, secondly why is there a 136 difference?

Needless to say I await your response on this one with interest.

michael
03-06-08, 13:47
There is a 13% admin fee listed on my renewal if you pay monthly (along with the 21 for "uninsured loss recovery") so maybe it's 380 from the insurer, SKY add the 21 to make 401, then the 13% to make 453.13 and the remaining ~63 is profit for SKY?

Or maybe they included the 49.95 AA cover?

Mine is due for renewal on Monday, I'm waiting for 5 quotes to come back from other companies first though.

Well i have a bit of a delimma with sky at the mo.

I have used sky for a few years and they are our main insurer over on the GT4OC of which I am still Chairman (no on else wants the job).

I contacted sky when I brought the supra and had the policy transfered over for 40 and was told that come renewal time (now) they would do be the best price. At this time I wasnt a member here and had no card or number, Anyway my renewal quote came through and it seemed a lot higher than my old modified ST205 GT4, so I phoned up and asked if they could relook at the quote as I was now a member of the club only to be told the quote already took this into consideration:rolleyes: How could that be, how did they know I have joined, no-one has asked for my membership number.

Im also not too happy as I was speaking to a few owners at silverstone on sunday and folk with big modded TT supra's seem to be paying less than my quote, now I know every quote will depend on lots of factors but none of it made sense to me as I have a great driving record and live in a very rural area, car garaged, cat 1 etc.....
