  1. Insurance Change to A-Plan

    Tax, Insurance & Licensing
    Just wanted to share my excellent experience! After re-reading the forum I'm very glad I called A-Plan. Have previously just gone with the renewal of my previous insurer for the past 9 years. I have a usual amount of mods including engine map, wheels and suspension etc. Thank you to David at...
  2. Newbie Advice - Insurance, Part conversion etc

    General T5 Chat
    Hi, I've searched through and found some bits of advice, but wanted to try get it all answered in one place, hence my first post. On a whim, my wife and I decided to get a T5 shuttle 2.5tdi. It's a few years old and has the 9 seats in it. The bloke we bought it off never got round to doing a...
  3. Nasty crash first thing Monday - advice please

    General T5 Chat
    I admit it. I’ve not been on this forum for perhaps years. Why? Because since choosing a 2013 T30 Kombi and then sorting out that steering knock (well, VW finally did that, fair play to ‘em), and then switching the interior for a Caravelle one, well, life’s been smooth and I’ve loved driving...

  5. Insurance approved valuations

    Coachbuilds
    Been looking at buying a coachbuild for the last 8 months, no more than 10 years old but many insurance companies are not willing to approve the value against the purchase price. A £40k+ used coachbuild is coming in at £30k. Looking at the continent to import a coachbuild see's savings of...

    Tax, Insurance & Licensing
    HI, I have a T5 van which is housed at my folks house for me. I live in Dubai but come home every Christmas and summer for a few weeks and want to be able to drive it. Apparently because i'm not a UK resident anymore I can't be insured on the van in my own name. I own the van but my dad has...

    New T5 Members Forum
    I have been on the forum before and just come back as a paid member after a long absence as I recently bought a T5. Can someone tell me if I get a membership number with my subscription as it looks like I can use it to get a better deal on insurance. Cheers.
  13. How much does a Pop top add to the value of the van?

    Tax, Insurance & Licensing
    Hello. Not sure if this would be the correct place to ask this question. I am having a Skyline Pop Top fitted in February and I would like to know how much a pop top adds to the value of the van. When I mentioned this to my insurance a while ago they said I need to give a rough new value to the...

  15. European Breakdown Cover (over 10 year old vehicle) and possibly Insurance?

  16. Crafter - Re-registration as a motorhome & tax costs

    LT & Crafter
    Hi all, My first post to the forum, I am about to undertake the conversion of a 2011 Crafter Cr35 136 MWB (photos coming very soon!) My main query was how does the registration as a motorhome process with the DVLA work and is there a cost to doing it? Also how does this affect tax and insurance...
  17. Insurance Certificate

    Tax, Insurance & Licensing
    I've just renewed my insurance for another year with Brentacre, who I'm more than happy with. One thing I find strange, and just wondering if this is normal and correct: The van had a pop top fitted last year, so I notified them and increased the insured value to cover buying a van of similar...
  18. Campervan Insurance & DVLA?

    T5 Conversions
    What certification etc of a campervan's conversion quality is needed to get insurance? And to look for when buying second-hand? Does the vehicle have to be registered with DVLA as a campervan? I'd appreciate any advice, please. We're thinking of buying an oldish (c. 2007) T5 conversion for when...
