1991 Cabby

tHi
I am working my way through various stages of restoring a 91 Clipper to MOT standard. Hope to have it sorted by April.
I would wish to insure it fully comp as a second car with limited annual mileage, say 3000.

Grateful for any thoughts/recommendations on competitive insurance companies.
cheers

Lancaster Insurance or Footman James are usually good mate, mine came in at 211 fully comp with Lancaster Insurance and I can drive any car which is not bad.

Peter James:
Home

He was the James of Footman James. I've been with them since my previous insurer Aon, bought  Footman James in 2003, and the service plummeted and the cost rose. I have a multiple classic car policy which I chop and change a bit without hassle (inside office hours). I've never made a claim though……

I used Flux Direct and my 1982 GTI cab on 3k miles a year, fully comp, yet to agree the value cost me 59 a year with 14 to agree the value

Interesting - I've just had a request for insurance rejected on a 92 Rivage because Footman James now only look after cars over 30 years old… something new apparently!

Will keep looking I guess. Might try Flux direct based on the below!

Performance direct gave me a good quote. 95 fully comp for the year 3000 miles a year, 150 excess  :lol:

Cheaper than the pet insurance!

Oddly enough I have a few cars insured through a couple of brokers and they both use the same company despite vehicle age restrictions! . I would also look at salvage retention.
