  1. No, i think he works for the AA, right MonkeyBoy
  2. Incredibly amateur...... i prefer the ocean finance with the "real" actors
  3. Yes, your insurer will require a letter from the company, someone at Director level to sign off that you have been insured for said period, without claims etc. I did this, and transfered full NCB, to insure the car myself, even though it was still owned by the company. Then i transfered two years off my company car, to receive full NCB for the box (privately owned) The reduction of 2 years off the company car, cost £80, though this should be nearly back to normal come renewal in February.
  4. Maybe you youngsters should get baby Boxsters until you're old enough to appreciate the real thing!!! what does that look like
  5. Kev, Esure £515 no tracker, 10k miles me and the wife, CF rather than NP post code and garaged. Ok for commuting to place of work also.
  6. thats a superb price bono... you lead a truly blessed life Welcome! JC Downside is that my missus is insured to drive my baby Its worse than that, you're also stuck with your missus. So you get caught, or fool around, she walks, your up the swanny so to speak. Playing with fire, and you now have no independance ...its a thought... but with the mortage too... wow! at such a tender age you are stitched up like one JC Kipper?

  8. Am i reading this correctly, are you saying that YOU have not made a claim, although the person who bumped you, put it through their insurance? If thats the case, you will have to check the wording on quotes, and identify if they ask about claims, or accidents. Then make your own decision
  9. Kev, try esure, they put me and the missus only at £515 protected. Your postcode should be better than mine, as you are NP rather than CF. Worth a try via the website www.esure.co.uk Alan
  10. Up until i disposed of the old Box, i was running two insurance policies, one for the box on 8000 miles per year, and one for the Volvo for full business use. When i originally bought the box, i tried to insure with esure, as their rates are so much lower than anyone else. I hit a "snag", as i was unable to transfer some or all of the bonus off the volvo, as it was second car. This came about because, the esure website was not clear in this area. Consequently i had to go eat humble pie from the brokers we use as a company. They took two years off the Volvo, which cost me £64 as an additional premium, and a further £628 for the box, covered for the 8000 as previously noted. So speaking to my broker, after the first fiasco, said that the policy with Zenith would have to be stopped, as they would not cover any cars over 30k. Ok, so what can they offer? well Norwich Union £1280 and Churchill £918. I was not too surprised to have an increase, due to the vale of the new car. My broker confirmed that i no would be eligible for a certificate from current insurers to validate the 65% NCB. I went to esure, covered the car for 10k miles, its garaged, i'm 37, and my wife is 39 withsocial domestic and basic commuting cover, although i will never take it to work (p*sses off the staff!), protecting my NCB, declaring my two sp30 from 1999, and insuring my wife, who has a clean licence, and no claims at all...... £515 Now how can there be that much difference between the various insurers. I would understand 10-15% due to the different way thay assess cars. So as you can gather, it esure for me. Now all i'm waiting for is the registration number from the OPC, who don't have any as they only opened last week Hope they receive them today, or it could really f@ck up the registering of this new car with the impending Christmas and New year holidays
  11. I do something similar, though only a humble Volvo. I have the company car registered to me as the keeper, then there is no problem with the insurance. The company hold the V5, so if i should leave (not likely as i am a shareholder) then the company could easily re-register the keeper. Worth considering, and IMHO legal.
  12. I'm covered for 8000 miles, but i doubt if i will cover this. Probably be garaged most of the winter
  13. Had the same dilema, company car has 7 years NCB, paid as a separate policy in my name. In the end my insurance company NIG, split 2 years off the company car, and applied 5 years to both cars. The only way you can do a deal like this is by using the same insurer as your other car. I got duped by esure, who allowed to me to purchase insurance, also let me indicate that it was not my main car, and that i regularly used another. When the policy was activated, they then would not honour my existing NCB as it was for another car, and therefore gave me seven days to get other cover This was when i stared to negotiate with my existing insurer. The bottom line is that esure quoted me 425, but would not insure me NIG increased my Volvo policy by 45.00, and eased out of my wallet 580 for the boxster. This is limited to 8000 miles per annum Hope this helps.
