Sounds like a good outcome for everyone.
Probably not a great idea to have all the tyre kickers coming to your house at this time.

May I suggest yo do not cancel the comprehensive insurance lest there be a fire/burglary/invasion of flying ants or something unforeseen?
Regards,
Brian

Lightbulb Re: surplus to requirements

Point taken re insurance.... But I have always believed that we cannot insure ourselves from every drop of rain that falls. When we decide what excess to accept.. we are to some extent self Insuring... this is what I am doing. I'm not sure exactly what Third Party covers these days but I suspect not very much. Fire and theft is an extra and priced so high that Comp. is the only option. Mindful of Brian's comment that Insurance Companies are a Business full stop.

There are also CTP (Green Slip) implications if comp insurance was nominated when the CTP was taken out.
As mentioned I have my Nieces 2016 Golf in my care at the moment. She is insuring on a month by month basis with one of the budgets, Youi, Budget direct? May be worth a look in.

Question Re: surplus to requirements

Maybe I should also cancel the registration. As we are confined to our Home handing in plates presents a problem ??

If you cancel a rego, you MUST hand in the plates physically for the cancellation to take effect.
If your rego runs out, you can hand in the plates at any time.

If you cancel the rego you'll need to mess around with getting a blue slip to get the car re-registered. Not many rego places will do a blue slip and I've not had great success with this. Normally having them do unnecessary work seems to be part of the racket....
