I have found that Shannons Insurance pay straight away with no quibbles, choice of repairer, and you get to keep the damaged vehicle if the worse happens, all from experience.
After having houses wrecked from cyclones and vehicle write off's, having a stress free experience when s*#t happens is worth any small extra.
Have also found when choosing on price that it can be a painful experience when the worse happens.
All the best.

Check the THREAD on INSURANCE - I posted some extensive notes on this a couple of days back, outlining my recent enquiries & outcomes as I searched for suitable insurance for a camper trailer. After much searching of numerous providers I have ended up with GIO (Suncorp).

They were the company I had problems with. Ombudsman had it sorted quickly.
Unfortunately they now own Shannons too but luckily their incompetence has not flowed through when it came to a break-in I had 18 months ago.

I suspect that all insurances companies have at some time been the subject of an insured's complaint and come under the notice of the Ombudsman - evidence is the recent Queensland floods. My research found that most companies have several other insurance companies in their portfolio and I am not so stupid to beleive that their data bases are not linked. I think insurance is like the credit industry - there is a common data base of claims records. In respect of premiums and policy terms, NRMA was not much different to GIO but a little more expensive. I went with the GIO for my van because I already had the 4WD covered by them - other considerations came into play as well. Ultimately it comes down to just what you want to be covered for and how much you are prepared to pay for it or carry yourself.
