Never heard of 1st Central? Any idea who they are underwritten by, or if they are part of a bigger group?

The small print on the bottom of their site:

"First Central Insurance Services Ltd is the intermediary for this business. Authorised by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (firm reference number: FSC01001B), and subject to limited regulation by the Financial Services Authority (firm reference number: 489346). Details about the extent of our regulation by the Financial Services Authority are available from us on request.

They have to be FSA regulated to write cover in the UK.

I probably do some work for them Wink I'm sure some of the minkeys at my head office know them as they are round the corner from Ocean Village Laughing

On a serious note, no I haven't heard of them.

A free Barbary Ape sounds like an interesting plan though.

Been with 1st Central for two years now, great on premiums but they won't let you modify a single thing on your car...

Tempted to stick with them one more year as my next renewal will mean all my 6 points will be cleared off and my last accident over five years ago Very Happy

What is good is that my premium has consistently dropped every year, last year it was £500 and now they have quoted me £430, gonna push to as near as £400 as possible !!!

Just as an update on this insurer, if you have an R53 Cooper Works they won't insure you. They consider it as a non factory modification and simply won't insure you.

They're miles more expensive than others for me. Adrian Flux are cheapest so far on one, and have price matched the others so I'm sticking with them. No foreign call centre to have hassle with, come back to emails quickly and have always been spot on when I've phoned them. Would definitely recommend. Being in the motor trade puts a lot off even quoting, but Flux have done me well again this year!

Yes, that's who I'm with them now too, they know what the Cooper JCW is, which helps.

Do not go for the Barbary ape - they will remove your wing mirrors, wiper blades and everything else which protrudes !!!
