+ 1 for Shannons Car Insurance

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give some reps to Shannons Car Insurance

 

I recently had an issue, they went above and beyond what I would have thought was necessary to rectify the situation and my car!!! :woot:

 

f**king stoked with them :blush:

is it true that you have to be a minimum of 25 to be insured by them though? that's the impression i have been under. hope its not true, as ive only heard good things about them and i would be interested in going with them

-1 for Shannons.

 

Didn't even want to speak to me even though i'm Rating 1, 25 and wanted to insure 2 cars and my house.

 

They ended up giving me a quote (after being on the phone for ages), but i found another quote with near the exact same terms and conditions for of half Shannons total price.

 

 

I guess it depends on who you get on the other end of the phone!

Yeah, except I don't give out reps that easily.

 

If you knew the circumstances of this story (which you don't and I'm not telling), you too would agree that what they did was above and beyond. I am guessing most Insurers that cater to import enthusiasts would not be as thorough as what Shannons were. Again, I'm only guessing. Seeming as this site is for imports, thought people might like to know.

 

And you don't have to be over 25, just have a good driving history and some other things. It has been covered here before

Same here, but they wouldnt even give me a quote. Been with Just Cars for 5 years and they have always helped in every situation no problems ever and i have claimed a few times for not at fault accidents and still have my rating 1.

nuh, sau would have a 15 paragraph essay about their life story, what cars they saw on the way, how that made them feel, and then what they chatted about at vili's.

 

and then all the other members would have to quote the entire 15 paragraph essay, highlight various parts in bold, and elaborate about how much they agree.

Just Cars is meh, but Shannon's wouldn't cover my FD if I crashed at a mate's house and didn't put it in their garage.

 

WTF? Isn't that a little over the top? It annoyed me a fair bit coz I was really looking forward to using them.

i havent had any luck with shannons... rang them up to insure my first bike.. went through all the questions about being an enthusiast and all that which was sweet.. then they said, "oh you havent had your bike licence long enough. We could insure a car for you no problems"

 

so about 6 months later i rang back to get a quote on the stagea. Went through all the questions and when it got to what type of car is it and i told them, the conversation went something like this

 

shannons - "is this the first time you have owned a car like that"

me - "yeah, ive never owned a station wagon before"

shannons - "no i meant a turbo 4wd"

me - "no"

shannons - "we cant cover you then"

 

have been insured for 8 years, rating 1, no claims what so ever.... oh well..

NO company in Australia provides cover for vehicles on the race track... the only Shannons vehicles that get track cover have to be about 65yrs old hahaha

A couple of members on here work for Shannons doing quotes and arranging policies. PM me if you want to speak to them direct. I have all my cars and house through them and have been extremely happy with their service.

Had my 180sx with Shannons for 5 years, just changed to Just Car as HEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPSSSSSS cheaper than Shannons for a higher insured value. The young bloke I spoke with at Shannons was the biggest w*nker I have come across. He said that Shannons arent that happy to cover imports as imports cost them too much cash on claims. I have his name so I will ring the manager and have a GOOOOOD b*tch to him about this guy and his lack of service.

When i had the GTR i tried to get a quote from Shannons and the bloke wouldn't have a bar of it.

 

I was 27 full rating 1 and the excuse i got was i needed to be in a cams approved car club.

 

So i went with just cars instead and got insured that day...

+1.

 

I had my Evo insured through Shannons while I was 22 through someone from SAU. Agreed value and choice of repairer.

 

After seeing how they sorted out a mates' WRX once when he put it into a guard rail (himself, no other cars involved) I have a fair amount of trust in them.
