I use them and only pay £495 a year for my Mercedes 7 seater ( value £42K) which I think is amazing! I live in Herts, and I do have 7 years no claims. I use them because they guarantee a 7 seater if your car is off the road.

Just insured mine with them now as £245 and the closest to that was £270 by esure, so chuffed.

You must be doing well for a Merc!!

Forgot to say, love the nickname, describes the job well!

I've had Mercs for 18 years ( DH has a 2 seater, so no kids allowed !) I looked at a Grand Espace and a Grand Voyager which with all the extras would have cost the same, but after 3 years they would only gurantee me a residual of £9000.

My residual after three years with the Merc is £21000, no comparison! ( I buy it with a deposit, 3 years finance and then a balloon payment, but trade it in every three years, I end up getting more than my residual usually by about £2k and just keep buyin a new one, or rather a demonstrator as I did this time, which only had 5000 miles on the clock, but saved £10K on ther price.

I've only had this one for 18 months, but looking at trading it already.
