But do you know that there can be instances where car insurers reject your application as well? This is probably one of the most common reasons for a car insurer to turn down your auto insurance application.

We all know the frustration of dealing with unreasonable sales people, suppliers or government departments on the phone line.

But David Hanison’s experience takes the cake.

He’s a loyal, long term customer, but even that meant little to the people down the other end of the phone line.

On the surface it just shouldn’t have been that hard.
