Auckland, 5 July 2016 - AA Insurance has claimed the Canstar Blue customer satisfaction award for home and contents insurance for the fourth year running.
The company recorded a 5-star rating across the board, and was the only provider to excel in communication, the top driver of customer satisfaction, as well as speed of response.
The survey asked respondents to rate their insurance provider across seven variables:
Quality of service
Value for money
Ease of claim
Speed of response
Canstar Blue surveyed 2,500 New Zealand consumers across a range of categories to measure and track customer satisfaction. The outcomes reported are the results from customers who currently have a home and contents insurance policy and have made a claim in the last three years, in this case 641 New Zealanders.
“They provide a Home and Contents package where if both your home and your contents are covered, customers will pay less for each policy,” says Canstar New Zealand General Manager Jose George.
"These kind of package deals make AA Insurance an attractive insurer, especially for the 63% of Kiwis who like to put all of their insurance under the same provider.”
AA Insurance Chief Executive, Chris Curtin, says the award reinforces the dedication the team at AA Insurance has for helping its customers protect their homes and its contents, and ensuring they get the best service possible.
