This is something that gives my arsehole earache   :angry:  Every year you have to get a new quote from a new company or sometimes its a new broker but strangely the same company   :rolleyes:

We have a grey import and had no idea what a bloody hassle it would be to insure it  :undecided: Seems only Sabre if you disregard places like Churchill  or Direct Line LV which want your right arm as well as payment  are prepared to insure the heap of shit that is our Hi-Lux Surf   :O

The Rav 4 freesport we have had as new Garry bought it for me out of 25K his dad gave him some years back , I have a great affection for this little car as Garry could have gone out and bought a bike , or a thousand other things, but no he bought this for my birthday  :cool: so you can see how very lucky I am as a wife   :tongue:

The bastards still want 150.00 tho last year it was 94.00 and ive argued them down  to 130 ....I am 61 in March I only drive to the bloody shops ! ...........No convictions , only accident was i drove into a ...OK OK you laugh............lamp post in Tescos carpark about 2 years ago and it just folded up!!!! They didnt claim from me and i didnt have any damage but it still aparently counts as an accident :huh:  FFS ive been driving legaly since I was 17 , bikes cars .... :angry:

Bike can only be insured with a handful of companys as its so heavily customized ..but thats about 125.00  ....Does not make sense  :cry:

Then theres House Insurance ,same thing ..............Dont insure the dogs , dont insure the contents...well you cant insure dogs contents can you lmao ..list would include ,,snails, twigs birds berries . potting compost ...and where Lily was concerned an awful lot of bullshit   :smiley:

Well ive had my sat morning rant.... :grin:

Try a company called Adrian Flux Carol.

They specialise in modified and imported cars.....did you know it's cheaper to insure a modified car compared to a standard car that is identical  :cool:

Thanks Carl , we used them for the bike for a couple of years, we managed to find  a bloke to do the bike cheaper who was a custom  scooter insurer   lmao and unfortunatly Adrian Flux proved a bit expensive for the motors .


I do apreciate the tip tho as i might be i had never heard of them   :cool:

I'm just going to sigh and put things into perspective...

My previous car insurance, I was paying £442 for...


... that was per month, not per year.

EDIT: That was Adrian Flux Carl, the cheapest I could find. :cool:

Because lots of reasons unfortunately.

Been driving 4 years, was 25 at the time, live in Hulme, next to the notorious moss side, my post code is highest grade for insurance there is, driving £25k sports car.

The Merc is quite a lot less insurance now despite being more valuable, as even though it's more powerful, it's a saloon and isn't a sports car, and is typically driven by more mature people so it's less than half now what it used to be last year.

OMG Moss Side.... yes I can see why ,if we had a Nottingham  post code and not a Lincoln one i think ours would be more , this blanket rate thing based on postcode i feel is wrong , nothing is considered on a personal basis any more  .


Its the "Computer says No" thing   :angry:


I would love to have a Lambourghini  ..............I do miss my customised motor , tho it did in no way compare to a Lambo  :cry:

Sky insurance are good for imports too. I basically had to learn the insurance industry to get insured for a reasonable price back when I was a 18yr old looking to insure a "jap rwd sports car"

Thanks:

Never heard of them  tanks will give them a try...


I got to the brink of doing it yesterday , cheapest was Swinton @113.00 then as i progressed it demanded proof of NCB within 7 frackin days ..ffs its normaly 30 days from start of policy .


Even tho i am staying with the same company but a different broken , still they want it basicaly NOW. last year I had to pester and pester, this is why I left Adrian Flux , they took so long for the next years "offer" to come thru , so I phoned Sabre and it still took a month :angry:


My car done and dusted a week ago....
