CONSUMER WARNING!!!!!
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.
Hi
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.

Thanks Adam

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.

Windscreen Claims Scam!

So I get a quote for car insurance and pay the full amount then get a letter a few days later telling me I ow an extra £80 because I have made a claim on a windscreen. 9 years NCD is unaffected but they just put the policy price up instead. What a ...

So I get a quote for car insurance and pay the full amount then get a letter a few days later telling me I ow an extra £80 because I have made a claim on a windscreen. 9 years NCD is unaffected but they just put the policy price up instead. What a con! What is the point of having protected no claims if they can back door the increase by just putting your policy up instead. This should not be allowed and is completely unfair.

I have told them now THREE times (on their OWN site) that I do NOT want to renew with them.

Each time "Donna" acknowledges the post - and then seems to do absolutely nothing.

Another email telling me to renew and another SMS message telling me they have been unable to take money.

They email you with a "donotreply" email address and message you from an SMS service you cannot reply to - and fail to act on any other form of communication. Have ended up now going to the ombusdman.

Utterly dreadful shower. Another years No Claims (9 years) and it is rewarded by another hike in premiums that other companies on the compare websites seem able to avoid.

Avoid this company - they TOTALLY ignore instructions NOT to renew - and do their best to take money regardless.

Untrustworthy.

Had a cover with this company for a year, which was quite difficult in a sense that one of our vans got stolen and then the new one got vandalised twice. We asked for help and advice from them which they were happy to offer. However, when trying to renew our policy, the quote was way too high compared to other insurers. After going with Acorn Van insurance instead, we went back to ask for the No Claims Bonus certificate. I used the online service where you speak to a representative who assured me that it was 5 years and that it will be sent to our email address. A week later nothing came through so I got in touch again. Apparently it was now zero years NCB as we made claims on the policy. I asked why no one bother to explain that we would lose all 5 years before proceeding with the claims, to which they responded that it's not something they are required to do. They then admitted that they should have kept us informed and that it was a mistake to say we had 5 years when we didn't, promising to settle the difference between the cost of 5 years NCB and 0 which we now have. Following a brief conversation with Acorn, they said it was £1051.84. Guess what happened? They refused to cover any of it now and won't talk to me any more regarding this. It's common sense to keep your customers in the loop and help them when they are in need. Leaving a review everywhere I can, reporting them using my team everywhere I can and seeking advice from Citizen Advice Bureau as well as our solicitors. Ripped us off big time!

ATTENTION, AVOID.This is company of scammers! Be warned, they ripped me off very bad and there is nothing I can do about it. Took out my policy with them 16 days ago, set up DD,no problem. Sold my car, so phone up to cancel. I accept the small print of a £79 cancellation fee, then a further £117 to cover a late payment on the DD. No way, then I see in the reviews this is their common scamming practice!!
You must avoid this company and spare yourself the frustration of being legally ripped off.

Such a rip off! when trying to get to them over phone , always being told someone would get back to me that never happen. Took me 6 month to cancel the insurance and we still been charged £75 cancellation fee! stay away from them.
