1st March I received an email from the new MD of PBIS informing me that the business has been brought by Grove and Dean upon the retirement of Peter Best. My BGT is insured with them under the Abingdon Policy deal.
I immediately phoned, being very concerned as what will be happening in the future and whether this will mean the end of the excellent personal service I have been receiving for the past 30 plus years.
I was reassured that this would continue as there is a reputation to be maintained. I suggested there be a "Solihull" policy exclusively for Land Rovers.
I hope their reassurances will be kept, only time will tell.

For reference, I pay £205 a year for a 109. Lancaster. All mods declared.

I'm late 50s, 7 years NCB. Live in South East in a middling area. 6 points - about to expire. And - you know the deal- a no damage to their car or mine, a compo whiplash 'claim' against me, two years back. £8000.

As an experiment, I tried as a 17YO. No claims. Clean everything. Of course, no NCB. Seems, what they're saying is, "Not if, but WHEN my 17YO self has a shunt..." we want £6800 first.

Most won't even quote. Truly, that was the best I could find!

Lancaster insurance £120/yr mileage limited to 2000 per year. Two years no claims, no points (now), putting my good lady wife on it brought it down as well, as did membership of this club😀

In my late thirties, as late as you can get Embarassed

Slow Progress. Agreed valuation, essential now.
I'm with Heritage for the Land Rover with 3,000 miles, agreed valuation, breakdown recovery and legal expenses for £144.
On the MGOC forum Lancaster are not rated very well.
Stage 2 MGB GT with Peter Best, 1,500 miles, agreed valuation and breakdown and legal fees just over £120.

Iím with Adrian Flux. £400 for the ninety with a disco 200Tdi fitted and winch bumper and 4K per annum on an agreed valuation. Full no-claims although last summer I had a very minor bump in the Audi, damage only where someone slowed down in front of me for no reason! My fault according to insurance so a new bumper on a Japanese roller skate. Iíll see what this does for my potential renewal with Flux... no points though.

Ah, looking at that, good job my 17YO self doesn't want cover, eh?

Jeez, looks like my record, which is far from saintly, is costing me not far short of double the '£100ish' a good many of you seem to pay?

If I truly was 17, by that reckoning, I'd be in at £13-14,000. Wow. But then, back when I was 17, I ran around on motorcycles. Apart from Pizza delivery and mid-life crisis owners, can't remember when I last saw a young lad on a motorcycle.

Agreed valuation question, how does it work? is it based on replacement value?, or recent equivalent vehicle sales??

Slow Progress. I checked prices in magazines and pitched mine in the middle. Be realistic but not too greedy. Any restoration work is best borne out by receipts. Up to a certain amount most insurance companies will accept your valuation.

Agreed valuation came back today Shocked itís worth a lot more than I thought they valued it a lot higher than me ....rang them up to ask if theyíd looked at the pictures/ had the right landy, they put me through to the valued and apparently they based it on the fact they couldnít find another equivalent to base a value on, so took a view as to rarity on top of 2.25 versions and priced it upwards

Hope my insurance doesnít go up too much next year

I had the MG insurance renewal from Peter Best today. It's the same as last year. Although I've been quoted a slightly cheaper rate I'll be staying with Peter Best.
The MG is insured under their "Abingdon" policy. I've suggest a "Solihull" policy for Land Rovers.
