The grey cover from the nearside unit on my manual Evolution mover has gone missing. Given how difficult these things can be to remove, I suspect that somebody thought they had more right to it than me, especially given the astronomical cost of the replacements. Powrtouch will only sell these covers as a pair at a cost of £40. I contacted them to ask if single covers were available, pointing out that few people would lose both covers at the same time. However, they were unrepentant and simply gave me a link to purchase a new pair. The new ones appear to be blue and have added a screw to make them more secure, so it looks as though I'll have to bite the bullet and buy a pair unless someone on here has a spare nearside grey manual cover to sell. If I buy the pair, then I guess I'll be putting the existing off-side grey cover on a well known auction site. Powrtouch are often praised on here for their levels of customer service, but their attitude to spares provision doesn't seem very friendly to me. John M
With our caravan insurance due next month, I started ringing around in order to check prices. A letter dropped onto our mat advertising Saga (for the over 50's), so I gave them a ring to check their prices. Saga were 'pleased to be able to offer me coverage for £520'. I bet they were! My existing insurer, (Caravan Guard), covered me for £230 last year, and, when I phoned them, the lady I spoke to said that she didn't see the premium rising this year provided that we have no claims before renewal is due (end of October). My point is, considering how many mail shots I get from Saga, why are their quotes ALWAYS so much higher than any other quotes that I get? This includes car, house, pet and now caravan insurance. Is there anybody out there who actually gets lower prices from this company because of their age? Is it just me? Mike
