    Anyone Made A Claim? And if you did were you happy? Notwithstanding that making a claim is never a happy time. Doing my diligence before committing my money so am getting quotes for my conversion to camper. My standard van insurance won't touch it as soon as I start making changes:cautious...

    Which companies will insure my campervan in London?

    My policy through A-Plan finishes in March at the same time as I move house from the South Coast to London. Surprisingly, A-Plan tell me none of their companies will provide campervan insurance in any London postcodes. Anyone know whether I should have more luck with Brentacre/Adrian Flux etc?

    Help with how to value WIP conversion?

    Folks, any pointers for valuing the van for insurance purposes? We're up for renewal and things have changed significantly since it was bought as a panel van last year. Our insurer (Brentacre) will insure to an agreed value but we need to provide the value estimate which they either agree to...

    Shop Around for your insurance!

    I made the mistake of taking out a policy with Adrian Flux in the belief that I would get the very best deal from them because they “specialise” in camper van insurance. The policy was due to start effective from 1st Oct 2020 when the conversion will be complete. I foolishly didn’t even check...

    A Right Royal Pain In The Arse.

    So at the age of 65, I bought a van. I then ask Direct line about insurance and they just transferred over from my car until 17th Feb. I phoned up again to renew and to cut a very long story short, they shouldn’t have. If I modify the van, they can’t insure. CVD quote £550 with mods, £410...

    Insurance Paranoia

    I suspect driven by the fact I've never owned something almost 25% of the value of my house this is driving me nuts. So, I can't seem to get insurance down under £400 and I've tried a few. Ironically, the one with the most stuff (recovery, a year of new for old - which I'm querying as everyone...

    Insurance After A Ban

    I’ve just finished a six month ban under the totting up rules (minor speeding offences). My wife’s multi-vehicle policy now won’t touch me and nor will my camper insurers. I’ve had to pay over 2k on the car and I’m getting some proper ludicrous quotes on the van, despite me stating I’ll only...
