Have mine at the mo with HIC, and its due for renewal (hopefully not!). I dont like the way they charge admin fees for changes, and for monthly payments, and they have just bumped my policy up by £30 to £378! (37 yrs with 65% no claims!). any recommendations for a change appreciated :)

ah well...gonna renew with HIC. cant get a lower qoute and most companys wont even insure it. closest was £450 from Budget, and then they had to check with their underwriters before issueing a policy. CIS wouldnt insure because it has alloys, Churchill qouted over £500, those broker peeps rang back and said they couldnt do anything. Thanks for the suggestions tho :)

Commercial Vehicle Direct were ok for me the first couple years, then took the p1ss the third time round.

Now have it with Stirling Insurance.
All companies except for Axa and Stirling seemed to have an issue with seats that could be taken out of the rear (only a double), and wanted large premiums for the honour.

I have it with shield, they were really helpful and all I had to do was send them pictures to show it was converted. Alot of others would not touch an Ex AA as registered as pickup/recovery vehicle.

Try Ensdleigh, I have just insured a car with them, don't know what they are like for vans.

I have justed finished 8 years as a company car driver, 2006 no fault claim, 2007 I hit a hare - even though I explained the hare did not stop at the side of the road and look both ways, it was deemed to be my fault. Many companies would not even quote for the car 1995 Merc 280E, those that did were wanting >£1000 FC LOL:. Endsleigh price was £485 FC and full business use for traipsing round construction sites :ILU:.
