Insurance - recommendation

Postby nfitz » 03 Jan 2019 13:46

Hi - After a few years with a 08 Corsaro and then a Grandpasso. Im returning with a new 2017 reg (old style) Corsaro but struggling to get a sensible insurance quote with Carol Nash quoting 1,250!!! Devitt £350 with £1,000 excess for 2,500miles/yr, garaged and with 9yrs no-claims at 54yrs old.

Ive got a 2014 R1200GS adventurer which I can insure with Devitt for £250 so I dont understand/accept these silly offers from "name brand" supposed bike specialist insurers.

Although its a vasstly different machine, I insured my modern bonneville for 80 quid last year with Swinton. I was previously with Bennetts who were around that price the year before but nearly doubled it for the renewal. I know that Swinton were looking at introducing multibike policies so you may get a deal to cover both.
I was pleased to find out that I could add my 92 BMW R100RT to my classic bike policy for an eye watering 4 quid, yup, FOUR quid :shock: and that was for 3000 miles fully comp too. That was with RH/ERS who cover all my old bikes (9 of em) plus my 1960 Rover car for 307 quid a year.
Personally, I have no time at all for Nash following their attitude after my father died 16 years ago and I contacted them to let them know. The first response I got before anything else was that 'theres no refund on a classic policy'. There was only a month to go anyway :? It convinced me that money grabbing rather than service was top of their list of priorities.

I am with RH, too. They do charge a bit more for modern Morinis, possibly due to the scarcity. I pay about £300 for my Scrambler and 4 x classics, which was £100 more than with my modern T120. I am a similar age but am lucky I live nowhere near Hell, sorry, the Souf east...

Yup, living up here in the Danelaw certainly has many advantages :D Best not to gloat though, MM, we don't want too many folk to find out!

It’s suprisngly difficult with the MMs and insurance. The scrambler seems to set insurers into a spin thinking it is some sort of enduro and the granpasso is pretty much a mystery to their systems. Quotes vary widely. I ended up with Hastings who were the only ones that came back with a reasonable quote, still £300/year though for the scrambler.
