Just insured my turbo with these guys for £600 inc track day cover. Spoke to a chap called Danny who was great to deal with. Definite petrol head too. :D

I can see you are in colchester Ponk, but is the car garaged, do you have NCB, age, any faults or convictions etc? SD and Pleasure or does that include commuting too?

 

Just trying to get a picture of whether £600 is a good price or not?

I went with them this year after being with CCI for several years, slightly cheaper than the alternatives but feck me, they do need to know the ins and outs of a monkeys arsehole. Despite explaining right from the beginning that the car is in bits at the moment so it wouldn't be possible to send A: photos, B: proof of a current MOT and C: a specialist valuation, I received numerous letters requesting said info, despite phoning and explaining the situation again and again. Which was frustrating. All gone quiet now so the message seems to have finally got through :)

The insurance certificate did eventually arrive though, so in theory all good.

Garaged, 7 years (protected), 28, no and no, inc commuting. Max 6k a year. Mod friendly. For comparison Flux quoted £450 without the track day cover so the £150 extra was a no brainer for me. I spoke to several others CCI, Chris Knott and Sky from memory. None got close to either quote.

Thanks, seems reasonable, especially considering the commuting part.

Hi Guy's,

 

First of all sorry to hear about your woes Darcini! Seems as though the message got through as you say. If anyone has any issues, you can always ask to speak with Katie O'Connor, who administers these policies for me, or speak with me direct if required, and I'll get things sorted out for you.

 

Sammy,

 

Great to hear you purchased a policy today with us. We've now got a couple of insures in place, so it makes life easier for us.

 

 

On a side note, we can also cover your main car, house and business, so do feel free to give us a call about anything else. If you're an existing customer, we'll be able to provide additional discounts!

 

Thanks

 

Rich

Sizeten,

 

Yep, we cover ALL LOT days, both in the UK and mainland Europe. With one of the insurers we use, we can provide cover at the Nurburging on Private track days. This would be classed as one of your 6 track days, but would run a much higher excess than standard track days. 

 

Graeme,

 

If you call in and ask to speak with Ryan. He sits right next to me, and his now handling the vast majority of our high performance/VX220/Lotus policies.

 

Regards

 

Rich

Hi Steve,

 

We can do track days for the Boxster and we also do European breakdown cover. I've got it for all my Euro trips, and Tigerdriver on Seloc bought it, and had to use it. He reported his experience on on Seloc and it was all good.

I went with them this year after being with CCI for several years, slightly cheaper than the alternatives but feck me, they do need to know the ins and outs of a monkeys arsehole. Despite explaining right from the beginning that the car is in bits at the moment so it wouldn't be possible to send A: photos, B: proof of a current MOT and C: a specialist valuation, I received numerous letters requesting said info, despite phoning and explaining the situation again and again. Which was frustrating. All gone quiet now so the message seems to have finally got through :)

Feck sending photos and mot's off, can't be arsed with all that. Been with Taylor Henderson last few years, straight to the point, no messing, job done. Highly recommend them.

I can see how this is viewed as a PITA, but all you need to do is scan the documents and you're away!:)

Of course there are ways round it or find someone who has a scanner! But even the insurance guy said its a bit of a pita! Just never been asked for this kind of proof in 20+ years of driving. Anyone else been asked for photos, mots etc when insuring recently? Maybe this is way insurance is going, more detail etc expected.
