Rear Bench seat query on insurance


Recommended Posts

1988 3.5 v8 CSW with LPG. After receiving blood letting from the insurance company yesterday. A question raised from the amount of seats current. Being registered on the V5c as 9 seat since lpg conversion.

1. Would removing my remaining unused bench seat and centre seat become an advantage for insurance purpose.

2. This would leave the amount to 5 seats for reregistering.

3. Would still be attractive or unattractive when selling later or part exchanging.

My 110 has nothing on the v5 next to seat number. Technically it is a 12 seater (11 now that there is a cubby box in there). That caused a lot of hassle at insurance time as none fo the buggers would insure abouve 8 seats except Flux or NFU. Despite it being a factory standard, it still appeared that the onus was on me to declare it as if it was a mod!

I was in the same boat. I rang round every single "Land Rover Insurance Expert" in the magazines and they all practically dropped the phone and hung up as soon as I mentioned I had 11 seats. NFU were the only ones who said yes.

8 is the magic number.

Exactly - its ridiculous! Why advertise as specialists in specialist magazines when they clearly DONT know the vehicles at all?!

So really by all account it more down to needs of seating and attraction for insurance :unsure: I did manage to get insured yesterday for 8 by Sabre as my previous insurer for a while NIG decided to have a huff and walk off with the ball. :angry:

Sadly being in a Manchester post code that is next to insurance no go area doesn't help either now :angry: :angry: :angry: I might as well remove the unused bench seat and nextime declare it as 5 seats only for less hassle.
