Swann Insurance

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' at netrider.net.au started by Drew, Jul 31, 2007.

  1. How exactly do i get a quote from Swann for my bike??

    Found their number after a some trial and error with webpages only to be told they "Only work through registered agents. Thankyou. Click"

    kinda annoyed me.

    I beleive that bike dealer can usually get swan quotes...but are they really going to be interested if i didn't buy a bike from them?


    I've got a quote from QBE.. just want to see if Swann are close to the mark. everything else so far is more expensive for less insurance

  2. I got a policy with Swann from the dealer where I bought my bike, they were cheaper than any other quote I received. I'm sure a dealership would be happy to give you a quote, they'd get a commission if you bought the policy and they'd have the chance to get you into their shop for a while.

  4. oops, missed what you said, if that's the same number you tried then I guess you have to use an agent? Gotta fly, off to physio! (I skip too much reading when in a rush,, like now!)

  5. Thanks mate but thats the number i called and got told they don't do quotes to the public....ONLY through a dealer...then hung up before helping me locate one.

    Guess i'll just ring a few dealers and see what happens

  6. The Kawasaki/Honda dealer in Bendigo used to be an agent for Swann insurance Drew.

    Name... ummm.... I'm having a brain fade moment :oops:

    I should know, I only used to get my ZRX1200R serviced there...

  7. Don't go with Swann. I had an accident and made a claim back in 2001. They gave me the run around something chronic before they paid out. I can't speak lowly enough of this company. A mate of mine got a shunt at the lights back in 2003 and Swan only paid out once he got his lawyer involved. Swann may have changed now, I don't know, but with other insurance companies out there why take the risk?

    Have you rung GIO?

  8. found some dealrs that are swann Agents... so have placed a call.

    yeah called GIO, they don't offer a few things i'm keen on.



    so far QBE is my winning bidder :) the cover for my gear etc is good to have and the price is good. I wont go into AAMI other than to say "tell 'im he's dreaming"
    Current insurer is just asking too much for the bike i have not as bad as AAMI though....it's only a li'l 250 SPADA guys :LOL:

  9. I have two cars and our home & contents with AAMI, but was told point blank that they don't insure Ducatis. The lass on the phone couldn't give me any reason for it.

  15. Just had a quote from my dealer who only deals with Swann.

    Category 3 bike (GSF1200 Suzy) rating 1, old fart (39) $391.

    Beats $600+ elsewhere.

    My deceased bike was category 0 (slow) and was $380 with another insurer.

    Go Swann and be mates with your dealer.

    My dealer is K&J Thomas in Whittlesea. Never had such quality customer service.

  16. had an accident on the old 100cc scooter, was fully insured with Swann and they charged me $500 for being on my Ls, $300 for being under 25, $300 for something else then they buggered me around for months and months and after about 6 months they finally fixed my scooter.

    so all up I paid about the same for insurance as I did for my scooter.
