Hi Shane,

just got a quote from them and a few others. AAMI was half the price and had as much cover. Contents was only $500 but I think this can be increased.

hi Greg, AAMI have a two level repair system, they recommend you take the van to their repairer, if you choose not to they will only pay what THEY think is a reasonable amount for the repair and you pay the difference. the premium being cheaper is for a reason. this is not an insurance company i would like to cover my van. cheers Shane.

Hi Shane. I realise they have the two level system. I have also had a couple of claims with them where people have back ended me and in fact the two repairs I got where the ones I wanted to use.

I did have a look at the MHIA policy this morning and could not find anything about "selecting a repairer of choice". If you know the answer to this let me know otherwise I will call them.

I do agree that if I am out the back of nowhere, I don't want to be told who I have to use.

Hi Shane,
We have our Jayco and Kimberley Kamper insured with them. While not having made a claim ourselves we sold our previous Jayco outback to people and they insured with them (made the call from our place on my recommendation) and 3 weeks later they wrote the van off between Bourketown and Normanton and they said they were really good to deal with and had no hasslws whatsoever. In fact said they were really good. (he decided this wiulld be a good place to teach his wife to tow not my ideal place to learn to tow)

Had a claim with them regrettably, a couple of years ago, $800-00, phoned them, told me to get a quote from repairer of my choice, did that, faxed it to them, they phoned me back within 24 hours, said take it to where you got the quote from, we have authorised the repairs. Bingo!.
Found them great to deal with, Insurance is something we hope we do not need but it is nice when you do need it for it to deliver what you hoped for & what you paid for.

one more year to go, my dad has just made a claim with them, very easy to deal with but he had to take it to their repairer. the repairer stuffed him around for a couple of months, Lie's, will ring you back, then the bloke handling it is on holidays. had nothing but bull#$@! from them. if he cant pick his repairer he will not be renewing with them.
cheers Shane.
