Insurance for modded series 2A

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at a series 2A which is for sale that has had a 200TDi motor fitted, along with several other mods and have been trying to get an idea of insurance costs but am finding it a bit of a mine-field, could anyone suggest where to try for a sensible quote.

Also, do I have to start with zero no-claims as it is not replacing a vehicle that has been insured previously.

I'v got a similar series and I'm insured with Adrian flux, Footman and James would insure me for a few hundred more and most others I tried wouldn't insure me at all.

When I put the 200tdi in mine it raised the insurance about £150, but over a year will save about £450 :D

In the UK, Yes.

Of course, you can always ask your broker / company if they will do an introductory discount, in recognition that you aren't (I assume) a novice driver, have a clean licence, are biologically old, etc etc, but start with the expectation you will be on the bottom rung.

New car, new policy, new 'No Claims' package.

If you had some sort of policy based on you, the driver, rather than one based on the vehicle, you wouldn't have asked the question. Such policies are not normally available to private individuals.

Their cost reflects the greater exposure to risk.

surely all insurance should cover for greenlaning as they are rights of way

You'd be surprised - most companies will wriggle out claiming that the policy is for hard paved public roads only, invalid on driveways other than your own, car parks, fields (shows, car boot sales and the like) and may even be difficult about icy public roads. The small print often doesn't even specify it, anything unspecified being uncovered. Flux polices cover all non-competitive off road use (at least they did when mine were started a few years ago), and they will put it in writing that succinctly if asked.

They were the only company who would cover my much modified 109 for a sensible price, and came in cheaply even for a high agreed value. Their service was very good when I unfortunately needed it, too, with no messing about, loosing paperwork of delaying inspections or payment.

I now have three vehicles insured through them.
