Insurance advice

Hi All - I wonder if anyone can help me. I have just bought a MK1 Escort that's an RS Replica. What is the best way to go about getting an insurance policy that is going to give the right cover ? Most insurance companies only give you book price on the car but if you have just paid 8-10k for a car it's no good if they only give you 300 if it gets pinched. 


Has anyone got any advice for me ? Thank you

one piece of advice i can give you .. avoid adrian flux like the plague once got a quote from them for a mk6 rs2000 2wd completly standard and limited to 3000 miles a year they wanted in excess of £3000 .. over £1 a mile just to insure one never had a cheap quote for anything from them always been one of the most expensive quotes

£3000 excess surely than is an error.  Can't remember what my excess was when I was with them but sure it was only a few hundred quid on a heavily modded Escort GTI with an agreed value of about £6000.

 

I currently use Need2Insure and they lowered my premium on renewal rather than raise it like a lot of companies out there.

Hi Paddy,

 

That sounds very high & I'd be keen to look into this if you still have your reference or can send me your details. Also note that we are a modified car specialist so we do have more markets on modified cars, so your being completely standard could mean we struggled to find an insurer that could cover it.

 

Regards,

Dan
