Been meaning to do this for a while, seen loads of threads saying "I use these they are great" and the "who's the cheapest" etc so thought I'd compile a list of people to ring around at renewal on this first post.

Now, be forewarned I will be moderating this thread of any chat and negative press about insurance companies so please don't be offended if it gets deleted T: if your not happy with your current insurer then please refrain from posting then we (in theory) only get recommended companies.

All I need is a name of who your insured with T:

If you wanna add any further detail to your post like:
I'm xx yrs old with this much no claims and have got this transporter for people reading through the thread then carry on T:

Ive got a 1999 2.5tdi Velle, 35yrs old and I'm with 2gether insurance, 7 years ncb (protected), declared mods (lowered, remotec alloys, 3" sidebars, blanked egr, allard power pipe, induction kit) insured to drive any car 8000 miles per year and pay £400.

LIST
2gether insurance
Adrian Flux / Just Kampers / HIC / Volksworld
Gladiator (commercial)
Brentacre
Octagon
Directline

With Brentacre but have rung around a little bit this year.
1997 panel van with windows, bed and alloys, not full camper conversion. Age 34, no claims 1 yr no claims as have been on someone else's policy as second driver for years. Paying over £600 third party fire and theft.

• 2gether – Must be under 3,000 / 4,000 miles p.a. (Can’t remember which), otherwise it would have to be on commercial insurance.

• Glynwood – Must be a second vehicle

• Adrian Flux – As I’m not a full camper as per DVLA they could offer commercial insurance only. If I converted to a camper, it would be cheaper but I wouldn’t build up any no claims.
• Just campers = Adrian Flux
• Volksworld = Adrian Flux
• HIC = Adrian Flux

• NFU - No quoted me as I don’t have a rural postcode.

So Brentacre are still in the lead.

Directline but through the car section! Which lists vans. £180 fully comp:)- 2010 T5 102 LWB-with class one business use(basically travelling between offices-no tools)

I am mid 40s though,rural postcode,no points no claims.

No mods yet as I only just got the van-think thats where they'll start to sting me!

Flux etc where quoting £400 ish and were the only ones who could do that type of business cover.

I'm with Direct Line car section too after Aviva were totally incapable of getting their head round such a concept.

However I'm still quite a whack despite having tons of no-claims - over 10 years. Probably because I live in the armpit of the universe.

2003 T4 caravelle ( 9 seats ) 2.5 TDI 88bhp with no modifications.



I am in my late 40's, have 7 years no claims and paid £657 with Direct Line for fully comp insurance last September.



They would charge an extra £275 if I wanted to fit alloy wheels:eek: so I am still running steel wheels.




Without any mods, direct Line were the cheapest by far at the time.



Think that the 9 seats put insurers off so i may have to take 2 seats out this year to compare prices.



Dreading to think how much it will go up this year.



We may be getting another T4 1.9TD SWB Window van so will need to insure both.
