Best kit car insurance comparisons / reviews / recommendations

I thought it would be a good idea to put your real world experiences of kit car insurance into a sticky thread to maybe help others find the best deal or service.

I personally use Frank Pickles insurance.

Who do you use?

I've just changed to Adrian Flux from Footman James.

I've always had good service from FJ, but the price has gradually been creeping up.

This year, FJ wanted £197.33. Identical cover from AF was £133.40. Quite a difference!

That is a surprisingly big difference on that amount, time for a ring around coming up.

Same as Dave Bence I changed a year ago from Footman James and am with Adrian Flux £152 incl. 3K miles, full breakdown and European cover.  There are some advantages to getting older and being a kit car driver!!   :D

Looks like Sureterm Direct came through for me this time too.

I will miss the personal touch of MSM though but the wallet comes first.

I used Sureterm Direct, found it in the K/car magazine. They quoted me £60.00 cheaper for my motor bike, thats due soon! If I go ahead     with the purchase of the Robin Hood, they gave me a quote on that as well-seems alright for me.

Having been lied to about the cover they offered when taking out a policy with Adrian Flux I absolutely would not recommend them. We ended up having a long argument and was patronised about how what I was saying couldn't possibly be right and obviously I was making things up. After suggesting they listened to the recording of the sales conversation they apologised and offered a full refund so they realised they were wrong but who knows what they would be like if you had to make a claim.

I'm currently dealing with 2Gether Insurance. They're a small outfit so you can speak to the same person every time if you want to but I am struggling to get the right paperwork sorted. We're nearly there though and at least they're trying hard and are keen to impress. I suspect I'm one of the few people who actually reads their policy terms and conditions so perhaps they don't get many people coming back to them to get items corrected.

I'll update this once I've got it sorted if anyone is interested.

Well this is what I wrote about Flux on Pistonheads a month or two ago. It gives a little more detail about my problem with them.

Well Flux lied to me about agreed values when I took out a policy a little while ago so I wouldn't hold your breath. After supplying everything they asked for and receiving all the policy douments they sent me a further letter saying "We're pleased to tell you we've agreed your policy at £xxk", which was about 2/3 of what we had actually agreed.

When I gave them a call to ask what they were playing at I was patronised for thinking that they would possibly agree a value above the market rate. Explaining that surely that is the point of agreed value policies made no difference. In the end I got them to listen to sales phone call and, surprise surprise, they called might straight back and offered me a full refund.

The bottom line is I wouldn't trust them to have done what they said they will until all paperwork has been received and you have double checked it.

I'll update the 2Gether Insurance story once it's settled. I am fairly confident they'll be ok though going by the impression I got from them on the phone.

I too had a problem with Flux and agreed value on the Spire (when it came to renewal).  They were very helpful in sorting it out although for this year only.
