I'm not so lucky I'm afraid live in Manchester high risk area..just insured a 1999 sterling 825 fully comp 726.00 I have 3 years no claims but some companies didn't want to use it on 2 cars.i find the later rovers the more expensive to insure as they're not in classic insurance time period yet.had a quote for a 827 sterling 1988 approx 350£ I'd love more rovers but unless I can get a multicar policy it's gonna work out expensive!! Unless I rent a garage in a cheaper post code!

Great idea for a sticky. The insurance groups are a lot lower than i expected. As for the IG's they do go up to 50 as you lot probably already know by now.

Insurance on the 800's does tend to be cheap but I guess there are not too many claims involving an 800 these days so they're probably seen as low risk. I think my Sterling just crept up over the £200 mark this year but that is with me and my wife on and fully comp.

I wonder if a new driver would be better driving an 820 now rather then a new fiesta? :lol:

With Tesco at the moment. Their renewal quote this year was stupid (around £350) so I called them to cancel and they brought it down to just over £200 during the course of the conversation. My other cars are with Swiftcover who also seem to be quite good.

He does live in the middle of nowhere though. :lol:

I haven't checked a normal car quote in a while but it was still £500 or so per car!

I'm 31 with 12 years NCB at that.

They're a broker of Tradex who I'm with. I've been moved to them on a homefleet policy.

ermmmm - I've just tried to get classic insurance from Lancaster (someone recommended them as 'decent'!) on my 820 nasp coupe; As a second car, limiting mileage to <5,000, me only driving, and bear in mind I'm an old bloke who lives in a quiet part of the world ...... their best quote was .....£1,835 :shock: rising to £7,226 .....WTF!

I take it they don't want the business ......


edit : contacted Heritage and they said "We can't offer you a quote for this vehicle at the moment" ........ Have I been listed on Crimewatch's top 10 or something?

Wow....you didn't slip into an alternate postcode whilst you were sleeping did you?

I have to say I've heard better things about Adrian Flux, but it does appear to be a total lottery.

I'm with Adelaide through the IAM and no one else has been able to touch them for price for the last 4 years, but they weren't much help when it came to a speculative enquiry for a second car (when I wanted to keep my MR2 on the road) - £1.8k. It was a short-lived dream....

The baffling thing is I've gotten quotes of under £200 to insure the car fully comp as my only car, and that's with unlimited mileage and including business usage ........ but when I try and get quotes for it as a second car (actually 3rd vehicle as I've got another car as my workhorse and a motorbike for the sunny days), even with limited (<5000) miles, I'm being quoted stupid numbers ...... I'm waiting for RH to get back to me, but the others have been useless.

I never think about insurance groups because the premium price varies so much - I just check what the total price is and go with that.

The only downside is that you do not accumulate any no claims with their policies.
Well, filled in RH basic online form; they called me back 2 days later (when I was out) and left a message ..... and I've tried to get through to them at least 6 different occasions since (tried am, pm, weekdays, weekend etc) and either it rings out with no answer or I get "all our agents are busy at the moment" .....

Doesn't bode well if, god forbid, I ever had to make a claim, does it? Had a bad experience with a 'cheap' insurance company a few years back who left me high and dry when someone knocked my motorbike over in a carpark, even though the driver stopped and admitted guilt ... It took 3 days to get it recovered (which I ended up arranging )and 13 weeks and a threat of court action to get the bike back, mainly because they had sold it (without my knowledge) to a breakers who actually listed parts on ebay claiming they had legitimate claim to the salvage rights having paid my insurance company for it - they did not!

more than insurance has given me the same ncd on both of my cars as they know i can't drive both at the same time, but with limited miles on the 827, witch makes them both around £250
