Exceptional Customer Focused Service

I bought home contents insurance. Originally I tried to fulfil online, however as my property is a new build, the address wasn't featuring on the system and therefore was prompted to call. The Aviva call handler was exceptional - knowledgeable, friendly and without question, totally customer focused. Having accepted the price quoted, the Aviva customer services lady recalled I'd originally tried to buy online and therefore applied the further discount - going over and above what my expectations were.

Buying was easy but the follow-up poor

Bought Building Insurance for my mother's house - good quote and on-line purchase went smoothly. However when I tried to view the documents on-line the problems started because we already had an account and mum's documents weren't on it. Establishing a new account was impossible without help. The chat-line agent identified that Aviva's records had the insured and mailing addresses the wrong way round (but assured me mum's home WAS insured). Still can't get on-line and haven't received any documents as requested. Thank goodness we have the first email acknowledgment of the insurance purchase, otherwise we'd be more worried.

House insurance

My home insurance expired whilst abroad return delayed due to Covid19. You sent several letters to my home address saying you could not renew due to my credit card also expiring. When I found out ( still in Australia) one phone call sorted the problem and I was again insured. I would suggest e mails are also sent along with the warning letters . This could then be avioded.

Very, very helpful staff.

I am 82 years old, and wanted to renew my home and contents insurance with my provider of the last 12-15 years. Regrettably, they would only accept my renewal by getting me to provide a mass of personal info, which I was not prepared to do. SO, I contacted Aviva (who provide my car insurance, and the guy I spoke to in Scotland was really, really helpful in taking me through the required info, providing an immediate quote, and setting up everything. GREAT service!!
