Agreed Valuations

Classic car values can vary greatly due to condition, use, history, mileage and more. In the event of a claim, placing a value on your car is out of your hands and left to independent engineer. These engineers are highly trained, experienced and will usually put an appropriate value down, however they may not always be right, and why leave a decision like that to the last minute? With our agreed values, we can fix the value of your classic car for 2 years, so you have peace of mind knowing what we, and your insurer already agree the value to be. Read more about agreed valuations.

Limited Mileage discounts

The majority of classic cars come out for shows and sunny weekends only and won’t be getting a fraction of the use of your daily driver, so why not take advantage of our limited mileage discounts? Limit your mileage to a few thousand miles in the year and we can lower the premium to match so you’re only paying for the mileage you drive. Need unlimited mileage or the full 12,000? No problem, let us know and we’ll work out the best rates for you.

Modified Classic Car Insurance

Many purists aim to restore and maintain their classic cars as close to the original specifications as absolutely possible, however there are many more who like to add their own customisations whether for looks, performance, safety, or other considerations. As a modified insurer, we have a number of schemes dedicated to modifications which would enable us to find the perfect insurance policy for your modified classic car. For those who have gone full Hot Rod or Custom Car, check out our Hot Rod or Custom Car pages.

Classic Car Clubs

We work with a number of specialist classic car owners/collectors clubs and can apply discounts based on membership. Be sure to mention any clubs you belong to when calling and we’ll see what extra deals we can offer. Do you run your own classic car club and want to consider offering your members an extra perk? Drop us an email on the contact us page or give us a call.

Laid up cover

We can provide zero-mileage policies or laid-up cover if your car is a garaged non-mover due to repairs, restoration, project or just storage. These ensure your vehicle is protected against fire, theft or malicious damage but the vehicle must be declared SORN, and kept off road while on a laid-up policy. If you want to get back on the road during a laid up policy, just drop us a line and we can switch you mid-term to a standard road-classic policy whenever you’re ready.

Car Enthusiast Home Insurance

We have teamed up with a couple of home insurers and have built customisable packages specifically for classic car enthusiasts. Standard home building/contents insurance can be extended to car memorabilia,  specialist home garage with equipment and parts, as well as other standard home cover elements. Give us a call for a quote or contact us via the contact form for more information and a quote.
