What kind of vehicles can I insure ?

We offer highly specialised insurance for high value and prestige vehicles, bikes, dirtbikes and specialised vehicles including unusual vehicles such as stretch limousines(including hummers), any custom built cars, dual control driving instructor vehicles, film set vehicles (not stunt cars), race cars off track (storage and transit cover) and other unusual vehicles. In fact, we have been known to arrange insurance for the odd ex-army personnel carrier or two.

Unusual requests for High Value Vehicles, Race Cars or Military Vehicles will also be considered.

Drag Racing, Rally and Race Cars may also be covered, except whilst practicing, competing or used on a race track or course for any purpose. The policy we issue for Race Cars will cover the vehicle in storage, during transit and whilst away from its home base, except when driven under its own power.
