  1. Some insurance companies just don’t like where you live. RH Insurance went off Sarf London several years back and doubled my premium having been so flexible in the past. For a modified car, I spoke with several insurers who insured friends equally or more modified cars elsewhere in the country and the premiums were a lot higher or no bid in one case.
  2. Glad it worked out ok for you and also, that the new role is all that you want it to be.
  3. Have you driven one? My son has one and I like driving it to the point that I paid the extra from when he was 17 to not have the tracker fitted for the occasions I was was behind the wheel
  4. Agreed. Business use and European cover and that is about a third of that total. Very pleased.
  5. I renewed my Boxster insurance yesterday but it is my main car, doesn't live in a garage and I am in south London. Breakdown cover was the big difference. Lots of companies in Meerkat land wouldn't offer European cover due to age so renewed with the existing provider. Not sure what the annual is as I do everything monthly - £35
  6. They didn't offer it to me. I asked about it and was advised that you have to be a member of PCGB to benefit from the scheme and they include 1st year if you are not already a member.
  7. Well, Boxster Renewal time. Churchill were a bargain last year when I switched over from my Saab. Up from £294 to £380 this year for reasons unclear from their call centre. Locktons were ok. Simple to deal with and competitive when you consider the euro breakdown cover I also wanted to add and Porsche membership included. But, you don’t accumulate or retain NCB and I would be using two specialist car policies which I am sure would be a problem at some point as I am named driver on my wife’s car, not the policy holder Mr Meerkat sorted a great deal with GA and have all the cover I want, including Euro breakdown for £400 so very happy!
  8. make sure it has business use insurance and dont make any fuss over it would be my advice - the new thing will be different and you can decide on something like this in the future if you like the new world. No point in changing something for the sake of it. I had the same situation for nearly 5 years and it came up a couple of times but nothing came of it and I used a 8 year old Saab, 15 year old TVR and 35 year old Triumph Stag for business use! It is worth remembering that benefits like this are generally cheaper for the employer than the same level of basic pay - pensions contributions are based on basic pay for instance and any business travel policies can be different meaning that you might have travel to their other offices capped to mileage policy or something similar. Good luck with the change!
  9. Less than I remembered actually. Not sure what has happened. I thought I was paying £450 ish and this £300! Need to check the paperwork as i changed from RH to Footman James. That is for the TVR though. I was getting silly quotes for the Boxster when I bought it and Churchill charged me a few £ to swap over from the Saab which was a surprise and a Result! The plan was to try to find someone who will combine them.
  10. Just picked up the post and my insurance renewal notice has arrived!
  11. Very interesting. Will give them a call next week. Thanks for the heads up
  12. Locktons look a good option. Do you have to be a club member?
  13. Try Churchill. Did me a very good deal when I sold the daily driver.
  14. Not sure, post code is probably a factor. They don't like me doing that in south London but I have a friend out in the sticks who has no problems, even with lots of modifications!
  15. Provided it is reasonably standard, you should have no problem getting a Classic Policy. People like RH Insurance and Footman James offer great service and good packages, euro breakdown etc for low premiums. All they insist on is that the car is garaged at night when at home.
