What do people think of this?

1/ Renewal with Footman James £145 - great service and help us out when we had a total engine failure in France and happily refunded nearly £500 on a cab fare from Rouen to Calais with no receipt as I was a in a hurry to catch the ferry and forgot to get it from the driver!!!!!!

2/ RH Specialist £122

3/ Carole Nash £117

All same cover including breakdown except Carole Nash offer full AA breakdown
but RH Specialist offer free salvage on the vehicle!!! That means that in the event of total loss they will pay out the full amount (agreed value) AND give you the vehicle FREE OF CHARGE!!! Whilst the others you would have to pay for the salvage...?

:)

One of our friends reccomended Equity Red star to us and we have used them ever since as dead cheap for classic car insurance.

RH insurance (Equity Red star) and there follow up cover was good. When our van had a crash I got a brand new T5 California during the show season so did not have to cancel my shows, then some quite posh cars after that. Though despite it all still glad to get poppy back.

regards

My insurance is due for renewal so I tried RH. Sadly they cannot provide an agreed valuation for an ungaraged bus. Worth knowing, and shows that we are comparing apples and oranges in this forum.

Best quote so far? £163 with Carole Nash, including £18k agreed valuation (parked on my drive), full AA breakdown/recovery, legal protection and limited to 5000 miles. Beats my Heritage renewal quote by a tenner...every little helps.

Oh, and just now Carole Nash are throwing in a free hoodie. If you spot somebody wearing a crap hoodie around a BBQ this summer, it is probably me.
