Hi
Our insurance is up for renewal currently with Justkampers, they can’t get us a renewal quote. Footman and James also can’t, tried Adrian ,, against better judgment and they can’t get us a quote.
Both of us in 40’s clean driving history, and both have other cars. Any one else having issues?
Or recommendations on who else to try that’s any good

Glad you got a quote then, £6 increase is not bad.

Insurance is a bit of a rip off mostly IMO. I needed an extra thousand miles on top of the 5000 I'm 'allowed' to get me to the end of the year and it cost me £70 !

Temped to disconnect the the Speedo cable..

Insurance prices everywhere and every car, glad I am over 25 to insure.

We had a thought on not getting a quote, technically our vans MOT is expired, but mot exempt, wonder if that might have anything to do with not getting quotes so easy aswell

Thats one of the things that I’d thought of but I’ve had no probs myself and maybe that’s to do with the fact that my mot is current.:unsure:

Ozziedog,,,,,,,,, may be a coincidence,, maybe :)

I actually terminated a policy with JK ,nine months in because they still hadn't give me an agreed value certificate .
I generally use Classicline, my van is now with Hagerty.
I would be more concerned who the underwriter is, not saving a few quid on price.

I’ve used Peter Best for both Beetle & Camper for many years and always been very happy with their service. I’m 46 and pay about £120 per vehicle for limited mile policies with breakdown cover.

As Gaz says above (redgaz54) it’s maybe not just about the price of the cover, it’s also or possibly more about what happens if the stuff ever hits the fan. That’s when a decent underwriter comes to the fore. I’ve never claimed on my van insurance but had a proper nightmare a couple of decades back with my car insurance and it was like chatting to a brick wall when trying to deal with them.

Ozziedog,,,,,,,,,,so? Any positive experiences out there ? :)

I once disconnected my Speedo when I did a road trip to France as I knew it would put me over my insurance limit :D I used a sat nav for speed.
I don’t have a low limit anymore and don’t do the big mikes so it’s ok.
