If you own a classic car or you’re thinking about getting one and want to try and get a little insurance advice, you probably already know that this is about as much fun as a trip to the dentists for root canal work! But if you’re thinking of doing a road trip with a classic car in the near future,
That’s because the insurance companies are set up to provide quick and easy quotes if all your details are run of the mill and your car is a standard model made within the last 15 years or so. Anything else seems to throw the system out and the 18 year-old data inputter on the other end of the phone line doesn’t know what to do next!
Then the situation is made worse by companies which advertise themselves as being specialists in (or including…) classic car insurance. But again, the moment you veer from the norms to talk about vehicle modifications or special requirements etc., they immediately struggle to provide you with a viable quotation.
Thankfully, there is one specialist classic car insurer where this is very much not the case; Classic Car insurance from Cherished Vehicle Insurance is not the same as many other providers. The company’s team is made up of experienced people who are genuine classic car enthusiasts themselves; and that really does make all the difference.
So classic cars, kit-cars, motorhomes and special one-off vehicles are all ‘meat and drink’ to the people on the other end of the line. And because the company understands the classic and specialist vehicle insurance market and the rates available, they are usually able to provide some great rates with CVI. They also know, from experience, that classic car owners are far less likely than the mainstream to make claims – for obvious reasons.
The company also gets involved with clubs and events and was the first The Mini Cooper Register and partners The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts Club.
