SIII 200TDi insurance woes..

For years I've insured my Land Rovers with Lancaster, I've never really been that impressed with them but they have always given quite a good price. I have a 1981 SIII 109" Station Wagon which I've just put a 200TDI engine in. I checked with the company to see if they would insure the modified vehicle prior to carrying out the work, they said they would (admittedly a few months ago). Now though as the policy comes up for renewal they're telling me they can't - they no longer work with the same underwriter..

The pertinent points for me are the following:

- 27Years old (me, not the land rover, that's older still)

- 200TDi engine

- I'm not a farmer

- I have to keep it on the road, in Worksop, Notts..

- I only want a limited miles policy

These all seem nail-in-coffin points. Does anyone know of any open-minded insurers they can recommend who may see past these points??

Adrian flux, RH, footman James and Heritage are the one i jump between. one year there will always be one them competitive while the others are carp!!

rh charged nothing when i fitted a tdi to my 109 last year, so they must be worth a shout, although thet want the landy to be a second car rather than your main vehicle

Try A-Plan, Thatcham Branch - 01635 874 646.

I had problems with Lancaster trying to insure my v6 90 - I'd call, they'd have to consult with the underwriters and call me back... After me calling them every day for a week and getting the same answer and no calls back, I rang A-Plan as I've another specialist car insured with them, and they gave me an excellent quote :)

Anyone over 25 owning a Series should phone PJ, no-one else I've phoned comes anywhere close, and I'm 30 now, with a clean license and long record of not causing accidents. You'd think I'd have it easy.

On the flip side, whilest they are miles away for the Landrover, Flux are the best about for the bike....figure!

It's getting harder each year for Insurance I only found 1 company out of all the usual names to insure me last year before I turned 25!

Now I'm with Glyn wood and there great I always speak to the same guy and they understand Landys :)

Not bad price as is my only wagon and 15,000 Miles a year, 200tdi etc

Dave brewer on facebook sorted me on my winch comp 90, £120 for the year, all mods declared, 6 points and 1 claim and im 30.

very impressed! will be transferring my 110 soon as sureterm policy runs out next october as that cost me 420 for me and the mrs. not half bad but i reckon dave would do it for half that.

When I phoned up, the chap I spoke to just said he couldn't give me a quote. I think its due to me having to keep it on the road. There was one thing on here that I've not mentioned, that was having a car stolen in Nov 2010. I lost 2 yrs NCB because of that! Still have 2 left though - clean history other than that..

Still surprised we didn't offer a quote. If you wanted to PM me your details I'd be happy to take a look in to it for you.

I've actually managed to get insured with Peter James, £126 fully comp. Very impressed!

Spongie, I suggest you give them a shout - they're quite open-minded. Unusual for an insurance company!

Thanks everyone for advice et al, was a great help!
