Hastings Direct Classic is currently asking classic car owners to consider how much they are really paying for their insurance. Hastings Direct’s Classic Car Administrator and Valuer John Tadman explains:
“Many classic car owners phone around in order to try and secure the most competitive premium. Many don’t realise that the price they are quoted over the phone will in many cases not cover all of their costs. Many classic car insurers will only provide agreed value cover if an independent valuation has been provided, and car club membership is also sometimes a pre-requisite. Obtaining an independent valuation costs around £25 and club membership ranges from £15 to £50. These hidden costs can soon make a seemingly cheap premium very uncompetitive.
“With a Hastings Direct Classic policy, there are no such loopholes. We have always provided customers with a free vehicle valuation as part of the agreed value process. We’re now pleased to announce that we are offering this service to any classic car enthusiasts who would like a no-obligation free valuation.
“Any classic car owners wishing to use this service simply need to contact one of our team on 0800 11 1066. We will advise on how to apply for a free Valuation Certificate valid for two years, which shows that Hastings Direct Classic has agreed the value of the vehicle.”
