Thought we needed a thread on insurance.

It occured to me that we should all think about the small print in terms of salvage.  If the unthinkable happended to to me and my car was trashed or stolen and rrecovered I would want  to know that I had the salvage rights to me car.  I have doe so much work on the car it is likely that in the event of an insurance claim I would want to rebuild the car, in which case you need to make sure that you have the rights to the salvage of your car.

I am with AON and my policy states I do have the salvage rights, but this is not the case with all insurers so you might want to read your small print.

Ive been looking at the various suppliers.

I have contacted manning insurance, but they didnt even have the courtesy to return my call....

Hagarty are quoting me £440 with 3000 miles

RH are quoting £437 with 5000 miles

Classicline are quoting £353 with 5000 miles and club trackdays  :agree: guess where Im going this year

I'm with Hagerty, I'm 29 and paying £430 fully comp, 3000 miles, agreed value and free UK breakdown cover.

Big saving on the £1500 I was paying!!  :o

Ouch - £1500 is alot of money.  £430 is much better.  Try Classicline next time your up for renewal!

hmm, when you read many posts on other Porsche forums, many state how low they are paying for Hagerty insurance and yet just a couple here are quoting in the £400's ? Doesnt sound such a good deal to me considering i am already paying similar with Performance Marque. Was hoping to use Hagerty at renewal time in March.
Sounds like Classic line could be worth a call too.

£220 fully comp, agreed value and 6000 miles I had from Adrian Flux - been with them for donkey's and I'm an old fart, that could have something to do with it though.

Dirty Fuchs :agree:

I used Lancaster insurance last year, £300 for 6000 miles agreed value, for social, domestic/commuting cover. Be VERY carefull with some classic insurance as the DO NOT cover social domestic and commuting, i.e daily every day use.If using classic policies some dont allow the build up of no claims bonus either so when the time comes to drive a "normal" or newer car you may have kissed goodbye to your no claims bonus when swapping back to a main stream insurance company.

Good point on the no claims build up.

On that one I would suggest maybe buying an old mini (smallest engine possibe) in the worst possible condition for £50.  Then insure it third party only for a few quid.  Never drive it and let your no claims build up......Just a thought    :happy07:

Yep thats one way round it and perfectly legal, as long as you do actually have the car otherwise its an offence covered under the fraud act, as the insurance has been obtained by false representation.

I ride motorbikes and know plenty of people who sell there "big" bike then buy a small cheap machine costing a couple of quid to insure just to keep the no claims going until they gat another "big" bike

Anyone used bridle insurance?

Posted: Sep 03, 2010 9:20:26 am

Any other recommends of companies for slightly later models for daily use??

Posted: Sep 03, 2010 10:15:42 am

Hi Steve - You might try Perfromance Insureance.  Ive used them and I know they do the more recent cars.

Posted: Sep 03, 2010 6:45:28 pm

Use SAGA............if you're over 50!
Mine costs me £205.


Posted: Dec 24, 2011 10:42:04 am

I just went with Hagerty.  Got an agreed value and breakdown cover all for under £300!  Nice christmas present.

Posted: Dec 29, 2011 9:29:11 pm

I think that sound pretty fair to me for whats included mate in these times  :agree:

This Insurance company seems worth a look.  It's compares insurance quotes from a number of insurance providers:
