Unhelpful Timings

The one downside of the whole “need a new car” thing is that I’d only recently sorted out all the MOT, Servicing, Tax, and Insurance Renewal for the current car.  Which is, to say the least, a bit annoying.

Thankfully, the MoT hadn’t needed too much work – simply realigning windscreen wipers and headlamps, no major stuff at all – but still it’s annoying to have done all the stuff for ensuring it’s mechanically OK, only to then have something unchecked go ker-fut.   (OK, *start* to go ker-fut!)

The insurance renewal is a bit more of a pain. I could make alterations, but I suspect that the massive difference in vehicle values might make it ridiculous.  So I might have to cancel the newly-renewed policy – I know what that will cost, and it’s doable.  And before I make a decision, I’ll find out what the costs will be, so I can properly evaluate the pros and cons.

Again, things could be far, far worse. It’s just annoying.

    Are you within 14 days of the old car policy start date?

    All insurance policies have to have a 14 day cooling off period, from the later of the date you receive the paperwork, or the policy start date, Within this time frame they can only charge you pro-rata for any days on cover.

    Nope, couple of weeks past that, annoying. (policy started on 5th Oct) It’s just one of those things. Piss-poor timing on many parts. Hey Ho.
