    Policy buy back scheme is a lie.

    I've made one claim in over 20 yrs of driving Shannons. Owner buy back policy is a big lie as Suncorp who own Shannons will not honour that part of the claim if they can recoup more money from a public sale. Basically your pride and joy belongs to them once you make a claim and you accept those terms upon signing your agreement on your policy.

    I will never use this company again!

    I have only made one claim on car insurance in 40 years and this claim through Shannons has been a terrible example of how not to treat a so called valued customer. The claims process is acceptable, but once you get to find out what you are covered for, another side to this company emerges. They will use after market parts before genuine parts, and tell your preferred repairer off, and in my case telling them to leave out essential parts and cut their labour charge down !!!! How disgusting. Cousins and life long friends of mine, of decades in various car enthusiast clubs,( Ferrari club and AMG club) are appaulled and are now reviewing their policies. I know my car is not in the league of my compatriots, $250k to $600k, but i love and dote over my $100k BMW coupe and can not comprehend the way i have been treated.

    Think twice before using Shannons

    Beware. Insured a car with Shannons under laid up cover while getting restored. Car has been stolen from the work shop where restoration was being carried out. Even after all the police reports and investigations I’m still waiting for my pay out 4 months later. Quick selling you a policy but won’t pay out when something goes wrong.

    Real people deal with you on a one to one basis.

    I can talk to a real person who is a car enthusiast and their premium cost is very reasonable for our daily drive and our club cars.

    Hidden gotcha's and policies

    Was willing to renew a full year's cover for my car, but mentioned that I was open to selling it if I had an offer that I can't refuse. Immediately was told that I was disqualified from having Shannon's cover. I couldn't believe it! How can a company be so draconian? The sales rep said with her very own mouth that if she was in the same situation as me and received an offer that she couldn't refuse then she'd take the offer and sell it as well? But in the same breath said they can't offer me cover. Anyway, NRMA's Classic Car covered it in 15 mins with absolutely no hassles and signed me up immediately. Well done Shannons... a slow clap for you all.
