Write To Reply Dear Steve Just Having a moan, I’ve been a Bennetts customer for the last ten years never even thought of changing until now. Eighteen monts ago I had a Honda Shadow which was on a Honda Policy when I changed my bike to a Honda X4 1300, Bennetts said that I would have to cancel the Shadow and start a new policy because the X4 was an import, so I had to pay £30 cancellation fee, lost 10 months of my No Claims Bonus and start the new policy. I kept the X4 until now and last week bought a V Max. Rang Bennetts: Please can I change insurance from the X4 to the V Max. Sorry but you will have to cancel the Honda Policy and start a new one for the Yamaha. Why? Because the X4 is on a Honda Policy. No its not its an import and you told me when I bought it that the existing policy was no good because the X4 was an import and not covered by the Honda Policy. Ah yes but when your renewal came up we managed to get the X4 covered so now you’ll have to cancel it, loose six weeks of your remaining cover loose whatever no claims you have plus pay £30 cancelation fee. Des Ja Vous Same s#*t different day. Thanks Bennetts for ten years of Loyal Service. Graham Havelock
