Is there EVER a good time for site maintainance?


Likes # 0

My car insurance is about to expire. Specifically at midnight tonight. It will automatically renew, but I'm not happy at the price so will not be renewing with this company. I've done the usual, shopped around the various price comparison websites, consulted the excellent advice on moneysavingexpert, included those that arent on any comparison sites. Eventually I found one that saved me about £250 for the same level of cover. I always pay the years premium in full and use the same card for it. So last week was going to renew but -shock, horror- I had lost my card! Panic, searched high and low, but to no avail. Last seen paying for fuel, called station but not been left there, so contacted card issuer confirmed last payment and cancelled card. New one arrived today as I have just finished work, so tried to retrieve my quote but the insurance companies website is down for scheduled maintainance! It will be back up at 12 noon tomorrow. Which leaves me with a dilemma. I can park on my drive, off road, but even thats illegal these days. I can declare a sorn for 12 hours, or I can go for the next cheapest quote.

Decisions, decisions.
