After a year of having my GT-R off the road I thought I might aswell get the bits sorted on it and get it running again, so after having a quick look on here I gave A-Plan a call for my insurance.

I'm 24, SS postcode, 3 years no claims. R33 GT-R fully comp. £1260!!!!!!

Considering last time I had it on the road I was paying over £4000 for it I was well impressed!

Seem like a bargain to you guys?

Cheers.

Quote for my Clio runaround? £420

Buy both at once.... £1000!!!! I couldnt believe it!

Im still grinning about it! :D

They mirrored my 5yrs ncb across both cars and gave me a bit of discount on top. Worked out finally at £700 for the 32 and £300 for the Clit. Im only 26 and have a big (£15k) own fault accident from the start of 2005 too!

Best bit of all is that they managed to get the paperwork to me today (after taking it out at 3pm yesterday) so I can go and tax it this afternoon!

Tonight will be the first day Ive driven it since November! :D:D

Agreed..A plan always good...but however i am 25, same R33 GTR, and have full NCB, and no points, my renewal with them was £1250, so it seems that yours are cheaper compared to me : ( ....but i have pushed my voluntary excess to £1000, to lower the price to £850.

Ouch... £1k is a big excess! I didnt like the £500 they made me take.

I think I do quite well from my location and the alarmed garage.

Yeah I got my renewal through from Tesco for my runaround Cliosport so I asked A-plan if that could do any better on that. They said if I take them together then they will do them both for £2000. They will mirror my 3 years no claims too.

Very impressed seeing as most companies wont even quote me on my Skyline.

I can't remember who it was now, but one place quoted me £1650 for my clio!!!!!!! I said I can insure my Skyline cheaper than that!!!!! :D

Just got my renewal this morning from A-Plan and it's just over a grand....BUT......they have said that if they do it via Ensign (instead of the current insurers) then that can do it for ........... £585 !!!!!!!

So i'll be asking more about that.

I have just renewed my insurance with A plan on my 33 GT-R again, I am 32 with 10 years no claims bonus and with my current provider through A Plan it was £680 but A Plan recommended another one that came in at £620 & I got the wife on the policy for no extra cost !

A Plan also insure my runaround Rover 214 SLi and charged me £170 for both of us on that & we have also just bought a delivery mileage left hand drive Rover Streetwise Turbo Diesel to take to Sweden and they gave me the same bonus on that and charged £370 for both of us :D

A Plan are brilliant, I have been with them for years and will stay with them as long as I can !!

Just phoned A-Plan.....

Told them that the car is now garaged every night, told them the modifications that they didn't have down (i.e. recent stuff).

My new policy (which I've paid for) is ....... £558 (via A-Plan but with Ensign as the underwriters I believe).

Last year my policy with A-Plan was £1175 - and I paid direct debit which had a 12% additional fee - so my policy was just over £1300. I've therefore saved nearly 800 quid this year.

Sorted.

Daz, It's incredible that you can save £800 ... maybe finally an insurance company has realised that when people spend time and money on their cars they are less likely to be careless with them.

I just wish I'd known about the joint insurance bit!!!.

It is amazing how there are little differences in the price though, I live in a low risk place (no garage though) and i'm paying 610 for a stage 1 car (it's not stage 1 yet but I've insured it ready)

I had 2 quotes come through on my renewal ... the first was if A-Plan used the existing underwriter and that quote was only £120 better than last year. The big change in the premium is where I have chosen to go with a different underwriter (via A-Plan still) ... and they seem to be MUCH cheaper. I think a few other people have had this happen as well (I also believe Ensign do good deals for the MKIV Supra club via skyinsurance or something).

When the renewal goes through (end of March) i'll have turned 30. I have full no claims (with protection), the car is garaged, etc. I insured the car for a value of 12k when I originally took the policy out with A-Plan a year ago so that shouldn't have changed.

Don't wanna worry anyone, but been talking to A-Plan re the above and got my 33 GTR quoted at £850 (last year £1100 elsewhere). When I asked what the trade valuation for my 1995 R33 GTR would be the answer was £9600 :eek: so this would be the first off in the event of a total loss. Now the guy said I could provide proof of other cars for sale to argue the price but don't mean I'd get anywhere :(

can you not have an insurance quote on an agreed price of the car?
Not with A-Plan, there is another company who use the same underwriter ENSIGN, but their quote was £1200 :eek: but that would be an agreed value.
