Liverpool Victoria, wonderful people. I have always declared the lot, but did so with reservations over the induction on the GT-R. Cost me a extra £8.99 from August to my renewal in December.
Note, the schedule of facts just states "Engine/Carburettor modifications". That's a pretty big umbrella clause.
The thing I've found with previous insurers that kills the quote is the ubiquitous "bad claims experience". If a load of t****rs try to fly or pass through walls, the remaining folks with the same type of vehicle get to carry the financial can, or worst case, the company starts refusing that type of car.
Do you have to own alot of cars to get the policy???
It's just that my renewal next year is gonna be a killer so am looking at other options. Also insuring it as a classic interests me too.
Have you had to make a claim on it??? Were there any probs???
Application is dead easy. No difficult stuff, just explained that although i work in IT i buy and sell the odd car here and there effectivly making me a part time motor dealer. As far as i can see from the policy, there is no limit to the number of motors.
Don't want to put a damper on this (we do motortrade policies) but you do have to be trading of some description, buying and selling 5 cars a year is enough for some companies.
BUT If the worst happens you may only be paid out TRADE price.
Also modifications are not automatically covered on the majority of policies - the terms of the policy are written slightly different to a standard motor policy, they can make it a material fact if you change anything on the car you will have to tell them.
Be aware also that some road risks policies dont cover the cars at the trade premises (home address if you work from home) or within 1/4 of a mile of these premises if parked/stolen
Mods currently declared, BUT I suspect next year I'll go for a traders policy, I often change cars and always pay trade for them, so does £1500 cover you for everything? Do you have to have trade plates to get these policies? My dream of two GTRs looks closer now
Who knows exactly what the standard spec is, if its come from japland with no list as to whats been done internally, ie turbo injectors,cc etc. are the insurance companies expecting us to strip the car apart to see? dont think so.......
I've told them its come from japan and ive done nothing to it here, so what do you want me to provide as far as spec list....
This they replied "ok sir so its a skyline what? we have no gts on our system" so im insured as a standard gtr wih no hassles
Hi everyone, this is pretty much my first post so I'll say Hi to you all first.
I've had my R33 GTS25T for a few weeks now, I'm 33 and my insurance was £850 fully comp for me and my wife with protected no claims.
I told them about everything that I new had been changed in the car, Induction kit, exhaust, Apex boost controller, front mounted intercooler etc, but standard wheels (for now, until I can track down some nice 18 inchers).
The way I see it is, if it gets pranged I dont want the insurance company to riggle out of paying by saying it had mods that I hadn't told them about.
You have to take into account whether you want your nice £2000 wheels insured too. It's alright having a cheap policy until some little twat goes and knicks your new wheels and the Insurance company only pays out for standard ones.
