Waste of time

I submitted a proposal for cover on a holiday apartment in Spain which is jointly owned by a group of friends. We had no difficulty in insuring the property over the previous 30 years with a Spanish insurer and only sought alternative cover because our Spanish agent ceased trading. Schofields stated that underwriters did not wish to offer a quotation and when asked why in order to assist us with seeking cover elsewhere, they would not reply. Don’t waste your time on them.

Lack of Courtesy

I sought a quote for insurance for our holiday cottages. Having spent an inordinate amount of time on the phone, and anticipating that the next communication would be a quotation I was amazed to receive a message stating that we did not meet the criteria for insurance. Then followed a list of criteria - all of which we meet. So assumptions made without the courtesy of discussing the matter with me. I responded to the message, but again Schofields failed to show me the courtesy of a response. Clearly Schofields are making too much money if they treat potential customers in this was

Awful service - Avoid Schofields Insurance

Tried to get a quote from Schofields, awful company to deal with. I got an e-mail back from Jon Schofield himself (I'm guessing this was an automated response). My internet had gone down and they wanted the answer to a few simple questions, so I called the number on the e-mail. Unfortunately Mr Schofield who sent the e-mail was unsurprisingly unavailable. It says 'Prefer to talk? Call our UK-based experts' on their website but found they were far from interested in talking, just wanted details of the previous insurers which I had already given them. They were not prepared to take any info over the phone and made getting a quote a painful experience. The lady I spoke to had to keep putting me on hold and speaking to someone else. A complete waste of time and in the end gave up with them. Don't waste your time with Schofields.
