I've always been pleased with Hagerty. I think they will insure most vehicles and always seem very competitive. They're also very familiar with the Stratos replica's.

Cheers,
Mick

I need to insure my car this week and Guy mentioned Hagerty over the weekend at the NEC, never heard of them before but Guy highly recommends them as well so I'll give them a call.

Thanks I'll mention the club when I give them a call, in the past I always used Adrian Flux so I'll give them a call as well and compare prices, no idea what to expect at the moment.

Haggertey wont insure me as I dont have a 'normal' car registered and insured in my name our car is in my wife's name :(

Any one got any other reccomendations??

Get your Normal car registared in both names like Jayne and I do... Yes you can before anyone tells me you can't all our vechiles are registered in both our names.
No cost bar a stamp and that could solve the problem for you..

That would solve the registration problem, but the insurance is also in Bev's name, that would need changing as well so it starts to get complicated ..........

The Slug

True, but as the registered keeper you would be able to insure Bev's car thus you have a car insured in your own name then...best I can offer on this one.

Neil, multi car would seem to be an option, i.e. both cars on the shared policy, Equity Red Star would be a good place to look, the other place may be Chris Knott Insurance

'Same for me. Hagertey wouldn't quote for my Stratos rep. 'Something to do with the year of registration. I think?
I went with Adrian Flux, but have used Footman James previously.

By the way, don't ever pay for a new policy with a credit card, unless you're sure you're not in a recurring payment situation. Recurring payments can not be stopped in the same way that direct debits can.

I've been with adrian flux for the past couple of years and found their quote the cheapest and even after my claim with them(M1 spin) their quote was good so have stayed with them. Also got an agreed value with them which helped settle my claim quicklier (couldn't decide whether to put quicker or quickly)

I am tending towards adrian flux at present, just need to confirm with them re the agreed value - also need to get an alarm installed..... good job I have a few weeks, as there is no engine to imobilise, no lights, no dash etc etc etc.... Talked to my local alarm guy & he would prefer to have at least some of the above bits present before he does the install......

Ended up with Flux in the end, alarm installed yesterday & insured today. Alarm install was tricky, due to having an isolator in the -ve side, alarm -ve is straight from the battery, but that caused other issues when the isolator was off, all sorted now though & thatcham certificate in hand:)

Neil, make sure the certificate has the reg number of the car and the name of the installer, AF were very precise with me recently with what they would and would not accept

Certificate has installers acreditation number, reg number of the car, chassis number etc etc, so should be ok

'Just had a renewal quote:
195.76 for 3000 miles.

Is that ok?

That's a good quotation but I guess it depends on the value you've insured your car for?

I've got it at 18k Vince.
Is that what a Beta engined car is worth? Not that we really know what any of them are worth? V6 or not.

Does this mean you are nearly back on the road then Ken? :)

Ps just to keep on thread mine was 210 from Hagarty only driver but same value and miles as Ken. Needs to be your second car and old enough (Reg wise ) I started with them when my car was on the A reg 84 donor year plate and was ok. Clean with them it was the donor year not the chassis and they were ok about that. Later changed to the earlier reg no problem.
Chassis is classed as a classic now too anyway -20years old

My policy with Hagerty is 2x drivers, value 40,000 & mileage 3000 is 405.00. That's 50 cheaper than my Beta engined insurance policy from 1996!!!

Regards Vince.

Hagerty won't touch mine with its 2003 first reg. year.

The actual kit is 1990 but that holds no sway.
