Insurance
« on: 08.11. 2011 17:33 »
Hi Everone

The nice people at Carol Nash sent me my renewal quote £203.00 for the BMW, Super Rocket and C11G .
I thought this is gone up bit, rung around Footman James etc being quoted £260.00 and above.

Any suggestions ?

Regards

Put the Beemer on ebay, sell me the Super Rocket and just ride the C11G.

Cheers  *smile*

I have an A7 and a BMW R1100R both insured with Ebike.
When I bought the BMW I thought it would be simple to add it as a 2nd bike to the exisiting Ebike policy, but it turned out that the A7 is on Classic cover and as a "modern bike" the 12 year old BMW had to be seperately insured. It also transpired that the Classic cover doesn't attract No Claims bonus although I was eventually able to get a concession on that from them.
Not an ideal situation but from memory the premiums were £65 for the A7 and £110 for the BMW, so I suppose adding another classic would get it to around £230. In comparison Carol Nash @ £203 sounds reasonable.

Hi Pete
I found the same thing when trying to insure two classics on Ebike, they won't do it, I also tried a few others with most of them it couldn't be done and those that did wanted more to insure two classics on one insurance than insuring them separately.
It's a funny old world the insurance one but then again closely linked to banking  >:D  *smiley4*

You have to make sure that you compare like for like. Carole Nash gives free recovery, but do the others?

Another recommendation for Peter James - I've been using them for a few years. Unlike FJ and CN, they do have proper people to speak to and understand the market a bit better. As well as being cheaper.
