Bought BG insurance through compare the market, 9 years claim free.
Insured a watch separately which I lost, informed police provided photos and receipt to claims at BRitish Gas, interviewed like I was a criminal, then told because I had CCJ 5 years old my insurance was null and void, I should of declared CCJ mmmm at no point through compare the market are you asked this question and how the hell a CCJ from 5 years ago can affect a watch claim on home insurance for a house you have a mortgage on is beyond belief.
Buyer beware I do not normally write reviews but this has left me feeling very sour.
Do not use British Gas Insurance and once my energy fixed term ends I will not be using them for anything and their attitude is absolutely disgusting

Appalling service at a premium price

We pay over £700 for this disgusting service. Our dishwasher died and today we took delivery of a new one. The person installing it said, 'You've got a slow leak, here - get a plumber asap. I'll put some temporary fitting around it.' Spent HOURS ...

We pay over £700 for this disgusting service. Our dishwasher died and today we took delivery of a new one. The person installing it said, 'You've got a slow leak, here - get a plumber asap. I'll put some temporary fitting around it.' Spent HOURS trying to get through on British Gas and the only time I succeeded some woman answered with 'Yeah?' I said, 'Is this British Gas?' and she admitted it might be and hung up on me. Tried to complain and - no surprise there - their complaint phone line ENTIRELY FULL UP (also for hours) and NO EMAIL for complaints - I'd have to write by snailmail. Is this the most appalling service EVER? - Yes, it is.

50% Premium Increase in 2 Years

My premiums went up by an astonishing £100 in a 12 month period despite no claims, incidents or even inquiries (as I now know just asking your insurer a question can affect your premiums). They went up £50 at the first renewal, again without any need to contact them. So 2 year's additional no claims on buildings and contents means £150 extra on my premium. I've told them to get lost and gone to one of their competitors.

Insurance is easy to buy, outrageous bureaucracy to claim

They have a network of polite professional knowledgable people and companies, who would do their best to justify why not to pay you when you have a claim. Poor data management. Important information gets easily lost in their system.

Have had 8 visits to date to fix PIR security lights, awaiting 9 now as still not done.

They either didn't arrive, booked dates when we were away.
Arrived without ladders, arrived without parts.
Or couldn't do the job because of health and safety grounds.
As ladder required and according to their rules it needed a scaffold ( to replace a security light)!
We pay £75 a month for this lamentable service. They have now agreed to consider compensation and we have had to employ a third party electrician who can do their job. But I have had to arrange it!

making a claim was painless

My chimney developed a leak earlier this year. I found the whole claims process easy to go through and the money for repairs was paid within 7 days of the assessor coming to the house. Everyone involved was very helpful and (as long as the quote is...

My chimney developed a leak earlier this year. I found the whole claims process easy to go through and the money for repairs was paid within 7 days of the assessor coming to the house. Everyone involved was very helpful and (as long as the quote is reasonable) I would happily renew with them next year

First time I've ever had to claim my insurance when my neighbours ceiling caved in due to my(unbeknown to me) old and leaking bath and pipes. Process of claiming was straightforward enough but I should have read the small print and realised that I wasn't covered for replacement pipes or a bath, even though they were the things causing the problem! Bit of a wait (over a week) to get an assessor out to all in all get just under £200 back by the time they took off the excess which was higher for a bathroom issue. Not too impressed!
