Insurance

Postby b110sss » Thu Sep 15, 2016 7:48 pm

I seem to recall reading something about a 'realistic' insurance company offering insurance for modified cars at fair rates.
My son has just bought a 2K Cup car that is now warranted and will be driven on the road occasionally however after talking to State they don't want to know about it- trying to point him towards that subsidiary of theirs, National Car Insurance and my experience with them and their proposed premiums is not the best.
Can anyone help here with some recommendations please.
Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave

Swan Insurance gives Datsun club members a discounted rate and it is insurance tailored specifically to classic car ownership, and the premiums are very reasonable.

Give them a call explain the situation and they might be able to propose a much better offer.

In the past I used club Auto Insurance when i was under 25 to get the Turbo Z on the road legally. It was expensive but it served a purpose. The rates for Swan were much much better.
The Answer to your Question is NEEDS MORE VG30

+1 for Swan Insurance. They also do agreed values which is real handy.

Thanks Guys,
All done and dusted- just over $300 for full cover. Very reasonable.

Interestingly I saw Brad's invoice from Swann yesterday and believe it or not they are tied up with IAG!!
What puzzle's me here is that State push anything that does not fit into their low risk boxes straight towards their subsidary 'National Car Insurance' and absolutely no mention of Swann.
