I have been trying to cancel this policy for over a week but it seems impossible. I called Autonet insurance last Wednesday 18th of September 2019 6 times and wires over 30 minutes on hold to they can elations team. I finally got through to an agent who advised that she cannot cancel the policy and all the cancellations team are busy. She advised that she will pass it through to a supervisor who will call me back before 7pm. They never called me back. On Friday 19th September 2019 I tried to call them again numerous times spending hours on hold and never got connected. I looked at TrustPilot to find that a lot of people were having the same issue so i sent the following email.
I have been trying to contact you since Wednesday last week. You have promised multiple times to call me back and failed. I would like you to call me and cancel my policy ASAP before I have no choice but to review my experience publicly.
There response was as follows:
Thank you for that information and I have passed on your details so you should receive a call back shortly. I want to make you aware that we have a different postcode for you, so you will need to provide the address we hold on file to the agent that calls you to pass data protection.
I then received a call 4 hours later from autonets cancellation team. The advisor confirmed to me that the policy was now canceled. GREAT FINALLY!
Then 1 week later I receive the following letter via the post from Autonet:
We refer to your goods/commercial vehicles policy and your recent call to Autonet regarding the cancellation of this insurance. As the full cancellation procedure has not been completed we can confirm your policy is active. If you wish to discuss further please contact our office.
Assuring you of our best attention at all times. WHAT?
So back to square one, I call and sit on hold for 30 minutes to the cancellation team. I then connect at the point I start writing this review. But no one speaks. I can hear their staff in the back ground talking about the weekend and how pleased they are that it’s Friday. In fact I am still connected and can still hear them having a knees up now 34 minutes and 12 seconds later. I MEAN WHAT IS THE AGENT DOING?
I have recorded all the background chatter. I wonder if their supervisor will be interested in hearing it? APPARENTLY AT THE MOMENT THEY ARE READING EACH OTHERS EMAILS.
I wonder if they are going to cancel my policy down. I have had no choice but to cancel my direct debit but I would really like to get the policy cancelled officially.
Policy reference number: 2601603/10/a7T
I’m going to hang up on them now all the singing from the staff in the back ground is not even in tune.
