Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely disgusting Nrma insisted I was not at fault and they drag this on for 12 months to save their own financial invests(to avoid a payout to third party) , then when up cane to crunch time they didn't want to go to court and instead demanded I take responsibility. Nrma simply looked out for nrma and stuffed me around in the process. Absolutely disgusting. Had to get FOS involved. Nrma were difficult and argumentative.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Service was great once car was actually in for rep Happy with work carried out, not happy with the assessors assumptions, yes I hit a Kangaroo and at the time the damage was assessed but 2 weeks late the drivers mirror falls off where the kangaroo fell after the collision, he declined that the mirror would be replaced in this claim, HOW CAN HE SAY THAT THE KANGAROO DID NOT CAUSE A FRACTURE AND THE MIRROR TO FALL OFF, mirrors don't just fall off without a reason. My wife and I have been insured with NRMA for over 35 years and only ever made one claim, between our private cars and business we have 7 vehicles insured with NRMA and find his ignorance and people skills poor.
