The Carole Nash Theft Survey - 2011 might be of interest.

I'm pleased to see my postcode area has dropped from joint 14th last year to 18th place, however the worst area SW is only 3 miles from me and Sutton at 9th (up from 51 Shocked ) is 5 odd miles away.

Nearly made the last page at =92 (ML - Motherwell postcode)

Does the Thundercat come into the (4.) Supersports - It says it on it!!, (5.) Sports or (8.) Tourer category?

I suppose my nearest is Sheffield, and its =49th. My insurance rose considerably when I moved from Horncastle. Similarly when Nick moved from Shrewsbury, his went up also.

I'm at nr 89 although that's because i'm a PE postcode which is Peterborough the next county along and 40 mins drive away from me :(

you're right Fi my car insurance renewal came in at £340 quid fully comp - i rang them and when they answered i said 'your insurance quote is too high - i'm not paying that whats the best you can do' they dropped it to £216!!!! (I stuck with them because everywhere else i then rang said they couldn't match it) - when i looked at my original insurance renewal letter the bottom paragraph said something about constantly updating their products and possibly being able to give a lower quote - well if they felt the need to tell me that why didn't they just do it in the first place wall

On the subject of car insurance tho - talking to Jax the other day (and having heard the arguments on the front desks at work with people over the counter!) one thing to watch is if you drive another car other than your own eg a night out with your mate and they drink and you drive their car. It used to be the rule rather than the exception that if you were fully comp you automatically had on your insurance third party cover to drive someone else's vehicle other than your own with their permission. A lot of the insurance companies have now taken this off so it's worth checking your policy because if its not written on your policy document then unless you are named driver on their insurance you're not insured to drive - hence if you get stopped in a car now and it's not in your name they'll do an insurance check. (I was quite surprised it is included on mine!) Oh and the other thing they've started being sneaky on is work use - if you drive to more than one place of work (ie you work at one site one day and then you need to work from another site the next) you need SDP & Business on your policy otherwise you are not covered if you have an accident as SDP only includes commuting to one place of work! Tricky barstewards!

It would have been useful to see the actual figures for number of thefts, rather than just the position, as I suspect that the odd one or two can make a big difference, particularly in the bottom half of the table.

The insurance cos. also think there can be significant differences between full postcodes. A few years ago my son was living in Exeter, and parking his car in the street. He moved just round the corner, and though he was parking in exactly the same place his premium went up because his postcode had changed by one letter. Funny how they always go up, never down.

Oh goody......

"Bikers in Huddersfield replaced those in neighbouring Halifax as suffering the worst theft rate outside of London"

Guess who has a HD post code. Not looking forward to renewal time..... grumpy
