#1 Car insurance

Post by Harveysearle » Tue May 19, 2020 10:08 pm

Hi there
Not sure if there’s anyone who can help me, with some advice.
I am restoring my Etype S1 and need to insure it. But it’s in parts engine. Gearbox, IRS. Ive rebuilt all of them plus other stuff. Body been striped down and doing repairs on tub bonnet etc getting ready to do spraying. But Adrian flux say they won’t insure it as it’s not in one piece, all together.
Anyone know of an insurer who will insure my restoration.
Any help thank you .
Harvey

When I was in a similar situation, Footman James insured my car but it was a few years back and the situation may have changed.

Mine's insured by Hagerty with off the road/restoration cover and agreed value.

Sent them photographs of the car and major components. The cover is good and includes trailering to workshops etc.

Great people to deal with too.

Regards
Stuart

+1 for Hagerty too. Great people and quite happy to adjust the value as progress on the rebuild continues.

I’ve been insured with Classicline for years. Always been great prices, agreed value and breakdown included. I believe they also do laid up cover.
