I was at a sheesha bar and staff notified customers a vehicle matching the description of mine was damaged. I rushed outside to see my vehicle rammed by a third party stolen vehicle and police at scene. My vehicle was a brand new car but i had bought it from a auction and got it repaired but i wasnt the best at filling away all reciept. I also serviced from Mercedes and really took pride in looking after it. The police advised me to contact my insurance company as i was screaming my head off about what had happened. Later that night i got around to telling aviva what had happed, gave my crime ref and they started from the start of claim giving me inccorrct advice. They explained to me first i was entitled to a standard courtesy car because i had no driver details. After thought the next day i rang back explaining i wasnt in the vehicle at time
Of accident so regardless its not my fault and the fact vehicle was stolen as i found out from
Police. They then changed their story to giving me a like for like vehicle. After agonising long stretch of me waitiing they decided to investigate mainly because i think of the value of the vehicle and the fact they wanted nay excuse not to pay me out. I coopearted as much as i could and at the time could not find reciepts due to my lack of organisation skills however they kept penalising me the fact i never had the vehicle repaired to a good standard, never had recipts at that specific, damage from the accident was inconsistent and that my emails provided were not mine and declined my claim. They also called my claim fraudulent indirectly by outlining their terms relating to cancellation if policy and if a claim is invalid or exagerated.I complained and explained addressing all the points however they maintained their stance due to
The high amount of pay out it would result in. I have proof of my vehicle as in perfect condition but upto their specifications it wasnt although mercedes never ever mentioned any major problems when servicing. Overall i would say PLEASE DO NOT TAKE OUT INSURANCE WITH AVIVA !!!!! They literally look for excuses not to pay out especially if its a new car and it will cost them fair amount. I would never ever take any policy out and will recommend to everyone not to take out any policy with aviva. I realised by my experience and further by researching amd found aviva is known for such scandals. If only i had researched before taking out insurance. Now i will be going to Financial Ombudsman Service. Please share my experience with all family and friends. I was gutted with my experience and heartbroken. They left me hopeless with no support and made me feel so vulnerable and it took me 6 months to mentally recover of the accident damage and their responses.

Someone needs a mental check up to go to Aviva

Aviva is cheap than some insurance companies and at the time of buying is a good company. But that is about it. Rest everything else is also cheap.

If someone gets stuck with them over a small something they will give you the worst time. A friend of mine was harassed by some team in their company because of a claim. His claim was termed fraudulent. He was threatened legal action. His policy got cancelled. The cherry on the cake was when all his policies with them were cancelled one by one. He stupidly had put all his policies with them. This should be a learning to all. Never put all your policies with one company. It will be like all eggs in a single basket. He got some relief finally at Ombudsman. He came to know that most cases at Ombudsman against an insurance company is Aviva. While he admits he was not careful in giving facts, Aviva's incentive seeking staff blew the thing out of proportion.

Just make a small mistake and they will hound you like rabid dogs. Many people on review sites are paid by insurance companies themselves. Insurance companies are not friends of anyone, least Aviva.

Everything has been fine until I tried to get money from my fund. Website is excellent and easy to understand but as soon as I wanted money out I was met with numerous obstacles. Finally the appropriate forms were sent and filled in immediately. Surprise, surprise, the date came but the required money was not paid into my account. The reason? They had not received my forms! After reading other reviews, it sounds as though the Post Office take delight in losing forms meant for Aviva as well as those sent by them! Soooooo annoying!

Londoners you can thanks this great fuck of robbing organizAtion if your community now lack of one more expert carpenter

My gift after 1 year no claim bonus discount was a renewal request of an extra £1330 to be added to my £2069 van insurance (van worth £500) outcome: ive no insurance, no place to park the van, am at risk of a fine, to become a road criminal as i park without insurance, and in two days ill be out of business... thank you aviva for taking care of the community, my only hope is that you all die from sickness, that all your families and similar do experience the worst we can ever experience in sickness, that all your remaining days of life you shall spend them in pain and discomfort, the same pain and discomfort that all the families have to endure thanks to your, racist and radical Austerity, From me and my family which now struggle thanks to your wonderful job in destroying small businesess, and robbing people off with your Bullshit Area statistics, which am sure never go to disturb anyone in those gold areas, so as i didnt want to be robbed by you nazi/fascist, bastards liars without a moral and a hart for the humanity, my only pray is that a new plague will endure this world filled by you greedy parassite, with blood filled hands, killers of those who put you there with the REAL HARD WORK!
Go fuck your self and die without peace! Amen

If There is an entity you will rot in hell

Peace of mind for household goods.

This insurance is reasonably priced. I have made one claim after a leak ruined my kitchen flooring. There was a delay with them coming out to check which held things up a bit but the staff were polite and accommodating. Ps. Yes I was paid out....

This insurance is reasonably priced. I have made one claim after a leak ruined my kitchen flooring. There was a delay with them coming out to check which held things up a bit but the staff were polite and accommodating. Ps. Yes I was paid out.

I'd recommend, despite the delay, as the insurance was value for money, the staff treated you like an honest person and communication was good.

Ive been with Aviva for 3 years now. Now and again there has been an issue with direct debit payments but their complaints team have always dealt with things quickly and efficiently. Speaking to customer servie with queries or to get policys renewed etc is always a breeze too. Top notch.
