Title: Who do you insure with?
Post by: Scott on 20 July, 2022, 03:00:32 PM
Hi

The classic car insurance is due on my Fulvia.

I'm with Footman James and have been for some time. Was going to renew by 'phone but on googling footman james renewal to check their number one of the top results returned was actually their Trustpilot reviews:  https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/footmanjames.co.uk (https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/footmanjames.co.uk) . Not exactly glowing.

Does anyone have an alternative insurer suggestion; one you'd recommend from personal experience? I've never had to claim on my insurance (and hopefully will never have to) but I don't want to find I've got a lame duck of an insurer (judging by those reviews) if something bad ever happened.

I use Hagerty for all of mine. They are so much better than any of the others in my opinion.

Hagerty are excellent to deal with - although I have never had to claim.

Footman James used to be good insurers years ago before they got took over by Aeon? after that they weren't very good, and speaking to advisers who knew nothing about classic cars.
Since leaving them I've been with Hagerty with an agreed Value, no claims, but no problems either.

Our car is insured with
https://www.classicinsuranceservices.com/contact-us/

i worked in the insurance industry for most of my working life and they were recommended. They certainly discuss requirements in a knowledgable way.
Our car is not whole yet and the bits are spread around various places, but they are all covered.

My kids have a motor trade policy through them for their classic car trimming business, and they are quite happy with them

Never had a claim though.

Other than having a policy with them I have no other affiliation with them.

Really appreciate the feedback from you all.

Given the number of mentions of Hagerty, and the notably positive review profile (https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/hagerty.co.uk (https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/hagerty.co.uk)), I'll give them a go this time round. Hopefully not too much form filling!  ;)

I was with Footman James then they doubled thier premiums so I changed to Flux who insure with Hasgerty anyway but are very helpful people.    Don't know how much I would save going direct but they do Flux Rescue which I have used once or twice with Lambda.

Renewed my 2c policy yesterday with limited mileage to suite, and with an agreed value, for just under 102.
No change in cost.

75.88 paid today. Fully comp/limited mileage.
I don't remember my Flaminia insurance being as low cost as that for a while, if ever.
