I managed to get fully comp insurance for a car value of £2600 for TWO drivers for £140 with Kwik. Obviously will get higher or lower quotes dependent on the answers you give.

Go through Quidco for £42.50 back (hasn't tracked after a week though - perhaps very slow?)

Plus they send you a voucher for a free MOT saving you around £50.

So I have really only paid £50 for a year's insurance, fully comp for two drivers!

MOT doesn't cost £50, and I would be very wary of free MOT, as they will sting you for overpriced parts, there's always brake discs that 'are on their last legs, sir'

Kwik-fit will not be cheapest for most people, best bet find cheapest quote through price comparison site, then check quidco for cashback.

My 3-litre car costs me £600/year, but as much as £1500 with some insurers. Waste of time checking each company individually

well actually i used the price comparison site and they came out cheapest on all the sites. then went direct for the quidco.

why would kwik fit be more likely to try to charge you for unnecessary work than some unknown or independent garage?

if mots don't costs £40-50, how much do they cost? unless you can say how I will assume you admit you're wrong...

The deal seems good. I think an mot is around £50-60 dependent on garage. I would not slag the guy off for saying they will tell you stuff needs replaced. Some garages let you off within reason. Kwik Fit got busted before for trying to do some old geezer with a metro. Told him he needed 4 new tyres and an exhaust, even though the car had been examined by professionals before the visit. That aside still a good find.

My MOT cost £49, so off to the naughty step for dis'ing that price.

Tesco insurance gave me a fully comp quote for 2 drivers on a 307 for £160, but they also gave a £100 voucher off the price of a TomTom.

How old are you people a what kinda NCD's do you have? Im 25, been driving less than a year and dont have any NC's.

Im with e-car, and I found them to be the cheapest @ 625/year for a clio tdi.

Do you think I could get it cheaper at kwik fit or anywhere else?

:shock:

Don't you shop around? I get mine for £30 with a free 14 day retest AND the tester is actually pretty fair on his advisories/fails:thinking:

sounds like a dodgy mot to me...

VOSA stipulates that there are only two sets of re-Test circumstances where the price for a re-Test is zero – that is 'Free'.

Kwik fit must love you. That's known as a 'half-truth' or 'lie'.

If the vehicle is taken away from the Testing Station and returns for re-examination on other than one or more of the items listed below, then only the failed item (including any other items affected by the execution of the repair) needs to be examined by the MOT Tester, for which the Testing Station may charge (up to), half the full Test fee. Whilst this fee cannot be exceeded, the Tester may, at his or her discretion conduct a full re-inspection if at the Tester’s discretion it is deemed necessary.


Which means ANY MOT station is at liberty to offer a FREE retest at their own discretion.

yes, by breaking the rules... :whistling:

this particular deal with kwik-fit is obviously good for the OP, but someone else could get a better deal elsewhere. i would suggest doing as i do and use somewhere like confused.com to get quotes from most insurers, then take the various quidco discounts etc off the end prices and see what comes out cheapest ..

for example, although kwik-fit are second cheapest for me on confused.com (having just checked this second), and screentrade are around about 15th cheapest - the latter offers £120 cashback through quidco, and makes it the cheapest overall.

I thought MOT prices were fixed by VOSA? They went up in price 6 months ago.

The maximum price is fixed but the test station can charge anything up to that amount. Basically they pay VOSA for the certificate (probably around £10 a pop) and the rest is 'profit'.

whether you pay a questionably cheap 30 or the full 50, either amount plus quidco back is better than nowt - and it just so happens in my case it was the cheapest insurer...

I pay £20 for my MOT at a very reputable local garage.It has been set at this price for the last 2 years that i know of.I have had 2 cars there for a total of 4 tests over the last 2 years and the only extra i have paid for was £5 for headlight adjustment once.Consequently this garage is very busy and they can still make a profit at that price.How much profit are these garages making at £50 a pop.At 30 - 45 mins work for a mechanic,that equates to about £70 - £100 per hour.:x

i dont disagree that you can pay less and get a decent MOT - you have a years of experience to determine your local garage is good (where is it btw, it's a really good price). but those chraging less may well be cutting corners, and those charging more may have higher overheads, like kwikfit may do - or they could be trying to make hugh profit - or they could by sh!t and still charge you loads!

plus you get 10% off at kwik fit which comes in handy when you want tyres exhausts or brakes etc as kwikfit have a price match so you are going to get the lowest price you find and an extra 10% off on top ! :thumbsup:
#26
thanks but im a londoner!
#27
I have had my car insurance with kwikfit for a long time now and I trust them. Their service is good and the MOT's are good. You get 10% off all servicing and reduced price MOT's. Voted hot through experience.
#28
I'm looking for a cheap MOT too - think the Clubcard deal is the way to go but there's no Nationwide Autocentre near me. Any other offers out there?
#29
Here's a tip for those that feel they're getting ripped off with mot's, with the garages trying to get unecessary work done.
Your local council will have a place where their vehicles have their mot's done, and by law these places must be made available to the general public.

The point is that they don't repair vehicles for the public, only test them, so there's no financial incentive for them to fail the test unless it's genuinely warranted.
#30
yes, that's true... is there a link to do a search for this?

i guess if the car does fali, then you will have to pay for a retest fee though?
#31
Bum. I took out my last car insurance policy with Kwik Fit before they were on Quidco :(

Good deal.
