I have all my cars with Enthusiast insurance and very happy with premiums, cover and values. I also had one claim through them and it was handled very well and sorted out very quickly.

Moved all the cars from LSV who i had been with since 2001 without making a claim, once i did make a claim, it took 4 months of friggin around and it still wasn't sorted so i moved to Enthusiast. Bonus is Enthusiast is cheaper.

Yes
They seem to be considerably cheaper. Good to hear they are legit to deal with.

With any insurance you must take the time to read and understand the fine print in the PDS. This can not be stressed enough. Iím not going to suggest one company over the other but will mention I had a very bad experience with Shannonís and will never suggest them to anyone.
Yes theyíre great on the phone but the guy on the phone wonít be dealing with you in the event of a claim the assessor will. I went through 3 assessorís and 2 Shannonís approved shops and still the job wasnít done to my satisfaction, Iím not talking about AU Falcon either.

Iíve never heard of this enthusiast mob but will look into them as Iím searching for a new provider, currently with Lumley with no claims.

Oh, donít take no for an answer from your insurance company regardless of who they are. Do your home work, ask around for similar experiences and outcomes. Most of all remember their there to make money, not be your best friend.

Thumbs down Re: Shannon's Insurance

My experience with Shannon's.
I am not a Shannon's customer and can confidently state I never will be.
A friend reversed his Shannon's insured Land Cruiser Sahara into the rear of my (then) BF Fairmont. A small dent in boot lid and a crack on the bumper.
He immediately went down to Shannon's Cannington WA branch and paid his $500 excess supplying me with the claim number. Worth noting he has been insuring everything with Shannon's in excess of 20 years.



My repairer photographed the damage and submitted photos and Quote to Shannon's - total repair $1,200 less $500 excess leaving Shannon's to pay $700 balance.


I hand delivered a hard copy to Shannon's in Cannington WA branch.
To discover - Shannon's is a "call centre" for every insurer. They have several Foolscap lever arch files crammed with the pros & cons of every insurer. Whilst there a call came through for APIA Insurance. The dude flicked pages and rattled off the benefits of APIA insurance. Was a nice guy to chat too and was open that all but 2 insurers in Australia are underwritten by the one insurance company.


I digress - it took my friend, my repairer and myself constantly phoning these contract "assessors" in all States and overseas for over 3 months to get a measly $700 claim approved. This with my friend threatening to cancel his 5 Shannon's comprehensive - 3 cars & house & contents policies with them and spray the story to his veteran car club.


The absolutely worst insurance organization I have ever dealt with in over 40 years driving with a total of 3 insurance claims. 1 at fault (18 years old) and 2 no fault claims.


Shannon's are definitely "enthusiasts" at not honoring claims nor paying out minor amounts promptly, but happy to continue bumping up premiums. Trading on values they dropped about a decade ago.



End of rant.

If you want quality service, ring Coles insurance and ask the lovely Indian phone staff where the nearest approved repair Center is in relation to your address. Itís good for a laugh... if your not trying to proceed with a claim

Your problem as I see it, your friend with the Cruiser was the Shannons customer, you were not.
If you had put the claim through your insurance company, you would not have had the hassles, as it would have been your companyís hassle.
I think I have stated somewhere else here on this subject, donít bother with the other party or their company ÖÖÖÖÖ...you pay a premium to your company so that they act in your interest.

Suncorp owns Shannons and half of the insurance market in Australia.

But in future, I would suggest lodging your own claim if you are covered. You are paying for a policy and your insurance company will work for you.
