Hopelessly amazing

published

Had our service station sign board hit by a car unfortunately for us was insured with wfi it’s been 11 months and they haven’t got the facts right. No one knows what is happening. I am amazed at the level of stupidity and ignorance I had to deal with

This is shocking, rich get richer

Nice initially, crap when the claim went in, claim went in 2 days after taking out policy wasn’t excepted due to cooling off period, what happened to cover notes! Corruption is common place

Good Service. No Complaints

My Mum and Dad have been insured with Wesfarmers for years....and have previously never had issues with claims.

I recently moved into a new home and decided to insure my contents and car with WFI.

My parents insurance broker was amazing and gave me a good price and reasonable excesses for my age.

I don't understand why so many negative reviews on this site. Never had a problem w WFI.

Tried everything to not pay out

published

It's not about insuring you, it's about how not to pay the claim. They spent 10 weeks finding ways how not to pay out.
Will never use them again in this life time.

I have recently had a hose fire and whilst WFI have been good to deal with there nominated builder JP Flynn are hopeless. We are now almost 6 months down the track of JP Flynn renovating. They have only done about 10 days work. Do not let this company near your site.

Insurance

published

This insurance company will stop at nothing so they don't have to pay a claim.
Recently had the roof blown off the shed in a storm and because the shed was old and not in perfect condition they reject the claim. Please don't ever insure with this insurance company.
They will take you down. Just look at their reviews. Tell a friend.

Terrible overseas customer service. Pathetic, I don't have any words to explain. Do not use them.

published

I was on the phone for two and a half hours to get landlord insurance and owner occupied insurance. Today I found out there was no landlord insurance in place. I also raised a complaint on a previous issue. Its passed 7 business days still didn't receive a call from the. The overseas (Philippines) customer service representatives have condescending and patronizing tone. One doesn't know what the other one spoke about. No previous notes. They place me on hold to check on something, and the call goes back to main menu and I always have to call back. This happened four times so far. Terrible, unprofessional customer service.

Do Not Use WFI Aka Coles

published

Car Stolen, stupid amounts of investigation and claim denied. Engaged legal firm who said for WFI in particular this is common practice and I with great certainty will have my claim paid out through the FOS (ombudsman) process. Huge mess around, stress and now having to pay for legal. Will be funny when I win and will show them every car, home and contents and landlord insurance policy I've switched over from the extended family. I'm on a crusade. Cheap premiums but when it comes time to pay they will fight you to the last breath.

Could not have been better. Absolutely fantastic Customer Service.

published

Recently we had a ceiling collapse as a result of water damage.
As I stated, the service could not have been better.
Assessment was prompt and fair.
Repairs were arranged expediently and were of a high standard.
Reimbursement for damage was treated fairly and promptly.
Absolutely fantastic Customer Service.

Atrocious

published

Had numerous policies over period of 15 years for various property, vehicles, personal accident and have gradually reduced down to 0 as they were not competitive
Policy increases every year with no logical reason, no reward for multiple policies.
Received heartless letter rejecting cover for one policy because of valid claim history and cancelled our policy.
Clearly a money making exercise and were treated like just a number.
Glad to be done with them.

I suggest go through lawyer, as westfarmer people are very cunning. They even threaten me last time "You can take us to court but remember you will waste your money and we will win because we have the best lawyer" even FOS financial ombudsmen can't help us. They prefer to pay the fees to the lawyer than pay to fix our car. In result we have to fix our car that cost us $3000 as literally their repairer and tow company wreck our car while their repair it, and the do half job, and unsafe to drive. please please please becareful with this cunning company and their staff, because we don't want our bad experience happen to other people.
