Insurance raises

Post by 911hillclimber »

Had an invitation to renew the 911, the Lola and the trailer from Hagerty a few days ago.

£440 with agreed values on the 911 of 55K and 40K on the Lola; the trailer no ag value.

Not that much up on last year.

My Skoda Superb daily is close to that.

Boxster awaited!

I had the renewal through for my 60 plate Audi A4 a few days ago and it has gone down by £40 a year, so very happy. It is insured with RIAS who I find very good and you can talk to real people!!

Do they know there's a 3.2 in the 911? In my experience anything non standard sends insurance through the roof.

I'm looking for a pre-impact bumper 911S or other high-revving 911 to restore - please let me know if you see one.

Yes, have declared the mods totally to everyone I've used and it has had little effect on premiums and agreed value.
I stay with Hagerty as they do the 911/Lola/Trailer combo and have for years.

Hagerty seem very relaxed about the mods on the 911 and now do not ask for annual miles. I was told classics are a really good cover as nobody abuses them, barely uses them, and love them to bits....

Boxster due in Sept, and expect that to be a Big Leap (LV cover the Boxster)

I've found the same - for instance my Giulietta Sprint is fitted with a modified engine, roll cage, uprated/lowered suspension, plastic windows, etc - none of which seems to affect the (agreed value) premium &, although I opt for a 'limited mileage' policy, I haven't been asked for the current mileage reading (on any of my cars) for the past 3 or 4 years ...

I've swapped this year, been with ClassicLine for years. I have 3 policies with them, 2 renew at the same time and both had increased by about £80 each, about an increase of 25% per policy.

Now with Adrian Flux for 1 car, and yet to decide for the other.

And our 2 cars could not be more dissimilar!

Wonder why that is?
Maybe the level of Agreed Value, £50K on mine.

Double that… still sounds ridiculous to me but I’ve seen nothing I could replace it with for less.

Probably why it’s £837… that and the 5000 miles. ;)

Mileage could certainly come down for next year as I won’t get anywhere near that.

Feels about right, stock car, high value and 5K miles.

My 911 is at the other side of the spectrum....

I’m currently with Hagerty - renews early Jan

I’m just under £900 but that’s agreed value on the 2 x 911, Boxster and the Bus
