Hi All,

 

I had car insurance with Quick Fit back in 2016 and after writing my car off I cancelled my direct debit as I didnt have a car to be insured.

 

I have just noticed an email in my junk mail from Helix Collections chasing me for the "debt" which is now £200 when i think i only owed about £50 to Quick Fit.

 

they have emailed twice in the past two weeks threatening further action and offering a 20% discount.

 

Shall i just keep on ignoring them??

You may need to check the terms of the insurance credit agreement, some companies require the full annual payment to be made in the case of a write off. That could be what Helix are dealing with.

paying insurance in monthly instalments only spreads the cost of the annual premium, it doesn't create a contract for insuring your car on a monthly basis so when your car was written off you should have paid the outstanding balance of the annual premium.

 

What i dont understand is why they paid out the claim without deducting the insurance premiums first- perhaps because they make more money from the credit agreement than they do from the policy- so something to look into when you dig out the paperwork on the claim.

 

So you owe Quickfit some money but that doesn't allow some third party to add an imaginary tax to this sum so you can just send a cheque for the balance of the premium to quick fit as settlement of the debt and if they reject that payment they cant start a court claim as they are clobbered by what is known as mitigating a debt.
