MCE Insurance

Since MCE are no longer around I've switched to another insurer who are asking for a proof of no claims bonus cert?
Has anyone ever tried to get one of these (or anything else for that matter) out of MCE? How do I go about it as they are not around any more?

Can I just email them requesting the cert?
What happens if they just don't bother replying/sending one out?

Re: MCE Insurance

I think they're in the UK still, the office there would probably have access to the records and be able to send it to you

Re: MCE Insurance

I believe they still offer cover in certain circumstances in ROI so it shouldnít be a problem getting documentation from them

I'm not confused but I just can't concentrate long enough on the question to read it.
This is very distracting altogether...

The no-claims discount statement must be included with the
renewal notice.

The first step is to talk to MCE. They should be able to
sort out a simple request for a no-claims statement.

If you don't make progress with them, you need to contact the
underwriter. Check your insurance cert for details.

Failing that, talk to the Central Bank of Ireland as
they are the regulator for motor insurers in Ireland.

and/or

The UK Financial Conduct Authority.

Re: MCE Insurance

How did other insurers compare? I renewed mine with CN last week. The pricing seemed to be very much in line with the finger in the air stuff I’ve read witnessed by others on here!

I tried CN, Principal & AXA. AXA just couldn't be arsed do a call back, CN started at about 450 straight away, then almost immediately dropped it to 330 no questions, Principal came in at 300 straight away and just didnt move.
