Insurance prices!


Recommended Posts

Please note those who don't know:

Classicline will only insure you if the Esprit is NOT your only car!!!

Wasted plenty of time telling some 'girl' all my mods to find out that they won't insure me as i use the car everyday!!!

Despite Club LEW membership, Club Lotus membership!

Great!

Currently with Elephant but not sure the renewal cost is what i want to pay...especially when you look at Troy Halliday's price above!

To Footman James...

beware Tesco as it is direct line, if you have a prang they will want to take your car to one of their own workshops for repair not a lotus specialist

try Aon Renu used to get a good deal from them on the sport 350 inc buisness use

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

I had an off at Goodwood and Classicline have refused to honour the claim, its in the hands of the Financial ombudsman at the moment, More details when politicaly correct to publish them. My only comment at this point is don't worry about the cost of insurance, its the value that counts and at this moment in time i waisted my premium with classicline and could possably lose the car as well!!!!!!!

Tesco/Privilege/Diret Line and some others are all Royal Bank of Scotland Insurance companies.

NO insurer can insist that you take it to one of their Approved garages for repairs. You have the right to pick.

They will try and force you down that route but stand firm and they will cave in.

I had a renewal notice from Footman James. It was more than last year by quite a lot and had gone up quite steeply over tha last few years. As luck would have it, I was at a specialist last week and mentioned it. He told me to try www.hagertyinsurance.co.uk. I did and they managed to cut my quote by a third, cut my excess by a third and that included extra for breakdown cover. They only insure classics, don't require valuations, just two piccies and seem very helpful. A contact name and number is Jayne Jordan - 08700 420940.

They are an American company started up by a private collector who has hundreds of classics and wanted better specialist insurance for his cars. He couldn't find what he wanted so started his own company insuring only classics. Now they've expanded in to Europe.

Might be worth a try if yours is due.

They include cover for events. They quoted me

It's a shame you can't insure anybody overseas. With those rates you would clean up. Alot of owners pay that sort of premium per month.

So should all us US Esprit owners come to you for insurance, Chuck, or can you only insure people in Georgia?

Sorry Trev,

But you have to live here in the south to get that kind of rate. It also helps that I own the company. :)

I have just had my insurance renewal from Classicline and it's gone down. However, it didn't list a sizable claim I had this year for vandalism on my Saab which was parked right next to the Esprit (
