"Had our renewal quote from British Gas for their homecare product. Rang British Gas informing them we were unhappy with our latest quote and we were searching the market. Didn’t really seem to be bothered. Asked BIG for a like for like quote. Chantel called us back went through the policy offered more items than British Gas same cover, and was £200 cheaper. As we are pensioners she went through the items slowly and explained things very well. Needless to say, she got our business."
