Not even a legit insurance!
I made my claim on August 2019 as a man reversed into my motorcycle (covered by comprehensive insurance) and it resulted my bike as a write off.
I covered my bike for $3000, with a premium of around $1,400 (stupidly high, but it was my first insurance ever).
I had to call QBE myself, to get updates, they provided no email or text updates whatsoever. After 100s of calls they settled for $500!!
They took their premium out of my settlement which is normal, then they made me pay the excess of around $100.
They promised to pay my excess back...before 2020 and now they're telling me to call back in February! Bottom line is, go with a well recognised insurance such as NRMA or Allianz- it'll feel good knowing that youre insured but when the time comes to put them to work, they'll do anything to not pay you.
Overseas call centre is pathetic... Seem to be trained with same answers, no call backs, no resolutions!!! Never again..
It has been 4 weeks, since my accident. My car is sitting at the repairer, and still no answers from QBE. Farcical, All i want is an answer so i can move forward. Simple as that. The offshore call centre are a pack of puppets...
Have QBE with both cars. My car had a deep scratch made a claim got a payout which unfortunately didnt have time to get repaired before another car smashed into the exact same spot and back of my car. Qbe refused to cover claiming the amount given would repair it all. We pay THAT much in insurance and they refuse to cover a second accident that was now my fault. Oh and the other parties insurance should cover it since it was their fault correct? Well they were with QBE too suprise suprise why they wouldnt cover it. Im so ticked off will never recommend and by the looks of all other reviews QBE is a FARCE.
Worst insurance company out there
In an accident I wasnt at fault in, it took 6 weeks to settle it with my car being a total loss.
I called them so many times with them doing nothing for weeks, they kept telling me incorrect information. It wasnt until two weeks in that they actually even moved my car from the tow yard to be assessed.
Customer service are very unhelpful, on hold every time I called and passed around to everyone. They dont document information so no one ever knows where the claim is at.
I recommend no one to ever go with this company, they make even the simplest things a huge hassle.
At a time when the last thing you need is more stress, QBE makes a lot worse.
Very very bad service. Have been treated so badly. Please be very careful with this insurance company.
Fact ! You people are so rude. Poor mismanagement of my policy Fact ! I've recorded every conversation with you people & will be passing this on to my solicitor. Very poor service.
Poor customer service
I'm waiting to speak to a customer service officer and so far have waited over 45 minutes. There is no option to leave your number and have someone ring you back. Who has time to be on hold for over 45 minutes during working hours????
If only these guys fought for me as hard as they fought against me.
Over 2 months to get policy paid out but didn't mention they were keeping the GST. Didn't even look at my vehicle for a week after the accident. Now it's 11 months since my "not at fault" accident and QBE tell me "we have recouped our losses, so we will not pursue the other insurer for your out of pocket damages", even though they told me they would. I got hit by a courier van, now I am $18000 out of pocket and counting.
Made an official complaint, they found in their favour.
My Advice is go straight to the AFCA if you need to claim with these guys.
I was told they would pay my emergency towing, after 1 week still not payment so I couldn’t get my car, was advised I can use my hire car as I pay extra, none of their companies in my town had an account with them so they couldn’t help me. Disgusting wouldn’t waste my money on them QBE is also ANZ bank.
Should be shut down, no Aussie and continuously have to repeat why I’m calling.
Can i just say how sorry i am to post that QBE has been a massive let down ,when i purchased a bike in early March had and accident then made a claim everything seem to be o.k .When i did't receive an up date per progress i tried to call the number provided many times for 20 plus minute segments i began to form an opinion.Iv'e been riding and insuring motorbikes for many years with no claims until this one which was recommended by the Motorcycle dealer (KTM) Sydney .At the time of purchasing the policy i opted to have Accessories covered also I....E Helmet, protective gear etc ,so when i sent my Apparel claim form and damaged gear to them some weeks later QBE sent me an email saying i would only receive $99.00 for the helmet which wouldn't cover the price of a replacement helmet let alone the Interphone (Helmet Intercom) which was also damaged in the accident and with that they said i hadn't listed it in the policy .I didn't list anything it's just not covered .Be very careful people ,this is bad practice
My lawyers probably going to call
Sold my motorcyle 6 months ago. Cancled the policy. QBE continued to take take out of my bank acc after numerous phone calls to make them stop. Then they asked me to prove i sold it , so had to go to Service NSW for proof of sale(which cost money). Said they would send out a cheaque within 13 days. Waited for 2 weeks then rang them to ask what was going on, seems they sent it to my previous address, but when asked to confirm my details, my new address was confirmed by QBE. Today is the 12th of july. QBE origanly sent the cheque on the 22nd of m...ay. I sold my bike in february and canceled the policy the same week. QBE just want me to say keep the f+×÷=n money so they can surpass their $700 billion dollar profit for 2018. I know that if I owed QBE money, they would be on my case every minute of the day. Now the tables have turned and they dont want to give back what they took. Is it illegal for someone to take money from your account without permission, because permission ceased when the policy was canceled 6 months ago
One star because I can’t choose no atat
Cancelling policy as competitors price for like for like policy $400 cheaper. Can’t cancel my own policy because I wasn’t the nominated driver. Then QBE thought it would be best to tell me I didn’t set up the policy no matter that I had the name and time of the phone call when establishing the policy.
worst insurance company
I would have give 0 stars, but had to give 1 star minimum...Hopeless customer service, wait for ages on the phone, not open at convenient times, cannot understand non english speaking people. Had my son listed as driver but was not advised that when he got his P plates, he would no longer be covered...had an accident and they declined the claim, I expected a big excess, but definitely not that I would not be covered...Disgusting! AVOID at all costs, RAA is cheaper anyway...
The worst insurance company I have ever delt with! Be aware!!!
QBE looks after their best interests.
QBE told me that my vehicle is a ride off and not worth fixing.
I knew that my vehicle could be fixed for half the panel beater's quote.
The panel beater gave QBE an over inflated quote to fix it.
However I found out that my vehicle was sold to the panel beater from QBE.
QBE told me that my vehicle was a statutory ride off.
QBE won't disclose that my vehicle was sold and for how much.
I have lost money, because QBE would not pay my whole finance amount for my vehicle, the actual value of it and have ruined my claims history.
QBE mishandled my claim causing me financial and emotional stress.
QBE= LIARS NO NOT TRUST THEM WITH YOUR INSURANCE POLICY
Worst insurance company ever!!!!
You are better off having NO insurance than going with QBE!!! My car got hail damage. Taken in to get fixed. When I got the car back it had MORE damage than what it had when it went in! Sunroof was broken! Front headlights scratched! Seals around headlights melted! My Mercedes is now absolutely wrecked! No help. No customer service. They couldn’t care less! $1000 excess and my car is ruined! QBE is the worst!
Worst Insurance ever
QBE is the worst insurance ever. Had a car reverse into me. Cleary at fault and told QBE it was his fault. They told me I’m not liable then they changed their minds and said I am. They never call back. Useless
Terrible, Unprofessional and Dishonest Service
I had my first claim ever lodged with QBE, Staff has no idea about the full claims cycle always thrown around to different people in a call center in Manila i believe. No updates were ever provided. The smash repairer they recommend had a very poor rating and upon request they agreed to change the repairer but then no update or call in 2 days and when I called back they said the repairs have already commenced and nothing can be done about it. Repairs are taking forever for a minor bumper impact. Requested the details of repairs long ago and whi...ch was never provided. Had to call multiple times to get the hire car extended due to the delay in repairs by their recommended smash repairer. Definitely will not recommend. claim is still pending.. will update again on quality of repairs. 21/06/19 - car is still not repaired even though the assessor said it will be ready to be picked today. The representative by name of [name removed] below only asked for a claim no. And did Nothing else in the file. It’s worse service than I got when I had a claim in a developing country. SHAME ON YOU QBE - hope your claim head [name removed] AND CEO [name removed] reads this so that they understand what crap service they are providing to the day to day Australians. WONT RENEW OR BUY INSURANCE FROM QBE EVER.
Disgusting customer service
Absolutely terrible customer service! They are quick to take your money off you for excess but take weeks to pay you your money that you are owed! They don’t get back to you regarding any complaints you lodge and don’t communicate between their departments! I even got a complaint confirmation email to confirm I lodged a complaint but then they tried to recall it! How unprofessional is that?! Never go with this company! I have warned you!
There When You Need Them
A guy reversed into the side of my car, I simply exchanged details and walked away.
It actually felt good, I wasn't even upset.
QBE handled everything, no worries.
QBE are reasonably priced premiums and easy fortnightly payments.
Worst insurance company ever.
I got into an accident January of this year, only to have to wait 5 months to be told that no party was at fault.
The other party was a very old elderly man who failed to stop at a giveaway sign and drove straight into traffic damaging my car.
After being told that the other party was clearly liable this company comes back and tells me that each party needs to sort out their own damages.
So I have to pay $1600 to a useless insurance company that has done nothing for me. Meanwhile the other party think their reckless driving is ok.
Thank you for nothing QBE.
