PostSubject: insurance update   Sat May 28, 2011 10:53 pm

following on from the insurance thread started by brava199 I thought I would contact a couple of insurers to test them out about off road cover.
I first contacted frank pickles and filled in their on-line quote form, when the quote came back it was from ADRIAN FLUX? so I sent them an e-mail asking them why they are sending me a quote when I had asked frank pickles,--------no response, so that's a fucking con isn't it? (by the way the quote was 330 with a 2" lift 33" tyres and some underbody armour)
so then I tried the one baz recomended, Glyn Wood, filled in the on-line form and waited for their call, well I have just got off the phone now and he quoted 130 with the same mods as above, he said mods are no problem and as long as your vehicle is at least 10 years old then it will be the cheapest quote.(they will cover newer ones)
I then asked him about cover for damage sustained off road and he said yes it will be covered as long as it is not a timed event and that you are competent to drive the course in the first place, I told him about that disco that rolled the other week and what state it ended up in and he said that it would have been covered.
I have asked him to put it all in writing and will update you when I get it, but it sounds like a good place to go.

not at all, insurance is a thorny issue and if we can all get some decent cover then it's good that you brought the subject up.

isn't that what insurance is for, claiming? they have got it too good, not paying out when we claim and putting up premiums to pay for those claims,
government should clamp down on them, kin' charlotens

mine was a 2.5 non turbo when I crashed it, they actually dropped the renewal cost!! But I lost 7 years no claims on it. So now its got a V8 in it, I wonder how much its gonna cost with only 2 yrs no claims!!
