Price of Insurance of elan in Manchester?

Postby karlo » Tue 09.06.2009, 07:31

Hi all,
I am new to the forum and am thinking of buying an Elan as a second car for myself and wife.
I am 38, wife is 33.
Will be doing less than 6000 miles definitely!!! :)
I was wondering how much this will cost in manchester if anyone lives there?
A range would help too and not actuals if you do not want to post the actual.
The car I am thinking of is the M100 elan (hope that is the second gen one)
If you need any other information please let me know.
Thanks again
Karlo

Hi Karlo,

Have a look here - if you haven't already :?: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1379

It's a bit top heavy now, so go to the end and read the last few entries for advice. Get a few insurance co. names and phone them for a Manchester area quote.

Club Lotus' recommended insurers are Footman James, who I was with for about 4 years on an agreed value, limited mileage policy but they hiked up their premiums so I transferred to Adrain Flux for the last few years.

If you have another daily car and your M100 is purely for lowish mileages and high days and holidays, it's definitely worth going down the classic insurance route.

Karlo,

I`m with Classic line and think i paid £235 that with full UK recovery:-
http://www.classiclineinsurance.co.uk/
Limted to 3000 miles
agreed value 10k
Mods declared.
Covered for trackdays with Lotus on Track.
Got to be garaged.

Manchester isn`t very kind when it comes to car insurance :twisted:

Best thing is to go through that link Rambo posted and write down the insurance companys that the members went with, you won`t get very good deals online as with classic policy you need to ring about.

Also try Heritage

Premium Choice were the cheapest for me, using their "classic car" insurance cover. They accept agreed value for free and LEC as a qualifying "club" for a discount.

I'm not saying they will be cheapest for you, or anybody else but they may well be worth a try amongst all the other companies suggested.

Good Luck.

Thank you all for your advise.
I have never actually got a classic car, hopefully this will be the 1st :)
