Anyone,
Any recommendations for 2nd car Insurance?????
I've got the Skyline insured with max no-claims bonus
I'm buying a 2nd car for round town etc and putting the GT-R in a lock up during the week.
I've tried a few places for insurance but they won't allow any no-claims bonus "transfer" to the other car policy.
SO IS THERE ANY INS CO THAT WILL GIVE ME SAY 2 OR 3 YEARS NCB IN CONSIDERATION OF MY NCB ON THE SKYLINE
Any advice (constructive or otherwise!!) will be greatly recieved
Regards

Same probs

Watcha Wroestar

Used to have a combined policy but then they stopped it. Sods. Sooooo am using the AA for me second car. They sourced an Insurance Company that 'allowed' me/they gave me the 60% on our second car.

If you get no joy let me know and I'll dig it out for you.

See Ya.

2nd car insurance

Wotcha Wroestar,

I have recently bought myself a second car to run around in, and now leave my R33 in my locked up garage during the week, I too had the same trouble with insurance ! I am now insured with A plan on both cars, although I had to insure my second car with them with no no claims bonus, they did however give me a substantial discount because my Skyline is insured with them also. May be worth trying them as they was by far the cheepst on the second car by a long way !!!! and Fully comp with no NCB was cheaper than TPF&T !!!!!!! Plus I am now getting two sets of NCB at the same time ! ;)

Let us know how you get on.

Cheers

Shaun. :)

Update

Thanks y'all for the help
Hmmmmmmm
The problem seems to be that I got a 6 month ban back in Dec 98. It was for totting up, 2XSP30 + 1XSP60 + transgressing a double white line! As it was in the last 5 years. Seems to be a BIIIIIIIG problem to the insurance companies.
I'm trying to do like Shaun, Skyline garaged during the week and used at w/ends and another car for driving to work in central London. I wouldn't care if the 2nd car was a bit tasty, but its a BL**DY Smart, you know, didy micro bubble thing!!!!! Aghhhhhh
Oh, I'm not 18 either, I'm over 40! (thats let the cat out of the bag) - Double Aghhhhhhhh

Shaun
I'm with A-Plan, the best they could come up with was £850!!!

Tigger
Thanks I'll follow up on Bell, and if you are in the industry, I should have a word with you. PM and let me know

Glen
Thanks I may well follow you up on your offer

I rather think as I've been a bit naughty in the past, the insurance companies are falling into line with Uncle Tony's "politically correct" cronies, and as a result I'm now regarded in only a slightly better light than a murderer!!! - I must stress this is IMO. No flack please I'm a bit P*22ed off at the present.
Again thanks again everyone, I'll keep you posted and keep any suggestions coming
Regards

Jon needs cheering up

Sorry hear about your predicament. I can see that you have been a bit naughty in the past but I suppose we all have - just been lucky and not been caught. I will be trying the above for quotes myself soon.
Don't put the smart down, a chap on beeb 2 tonight (Wrong car, Right car), said his drive in a new porsche 911 he took was like the smart car later:D Must be ok then.
Seriously you might be down down but the weekends coming. Time to take the GTR for a (below speed limit) blast:smokin:

Ta everyone,
Will be off line for a few days (borrowing internet access at the moment) cos my computer hard drive has gone bang!!!!
Thanks Dave for your words......I picked the car up y/day from Abbey after a routine (and hopefully not too expensive) service, and drove home X country.........and all my troubles melted away......sheer enjoyment, both windows down (in the rain) listening to the HKS version of "Freebird" (Jeez that dates me!!).
Anyway, Tigger thanks I'll PM you when I get properly back on-line.......Were you the blond driving on the A25 towards Abbey y/day that nearly caused me to crash into the queue of traffic at the roadworks???.............hope so
Right I'll shut up now

In case your still looking....

I was in a similar situation some 4 years ago when I owned a cossie. I also had the wifes car insured in my name. When I bought a second run around car for myself, I couldn't get any no claims allowed against it.
I was being quoted £450 ish for an old knacker Prelude. So I got the wife to insure it in her name. This was without any no claims at all - ever . The quote was HUNDREDS cheaper than mine! It seems women can get huge discounts when they haven't any no claims.
My quote was £450 ish hers was £180. I suppose someone, somewhere thinks it all makes sense.......

I'm back (I never went away) - computer fixed!!!!!
Thanks BikerBob..........only problem is I'm not married hmmmmm and I think getting married is probably a bit extreme (pay an extra few hundred quid or many millions over a long period of time........difficult choice !!)

Tigger............You were driving a very "sober" but smart looking black? R33.......well "sober" compared to your outrageous GTiR at least

Regards
