And insurance is a pure numbers game these days. You aren’t really dealing with individuals with any say in the matter. Instead, you’re either inputting the data yourself online – or someone else is doing that for you at the other end of the phone. And if your details or, more likely, those of your car, differ from the norm in any way, then it becomes problematic to say the least.
Almost all of us have had this experience at one time or another. So what do we do? We “lie” for expediency’s sake. “Well, if you just put it down as XYZ, that’ll be fine for the quotation.”
At the time you’re doing this, you know it’s wrong but it seems like it’s the only way around the system.
Thankfully, it isn’t. There are some companies it there which lay claim to being specialist car insurers which are genuine. Sadly, there are also many that aren’t. One that is, is Cherished Vehicle Insurance, CVI, which is staffed by people who are classic car enthusiasts and who put some human judgement into things alongside the numbers.
Classic Mini insurance with CVI, for example, is a lot more straightforward with CVI and companies like it. Minis are one of the most collectable of old British classic motoring. There are few, if any, cars more iconic of the 1960s which are also affordable. Get Classic Mini insurance with CVI and you’ll be able to paint a Union Jack on the roof and motor down to Piccadilly Square like Austin Powers – safe in the knowledge that your details are correct.
