Morning all,

I'd like to use my retired fairway to do some irregular wedding hire. My classic car insurance with peter best won't allow me to add this. I've looked on the interweb and got some ridiculous quotes of 600 nicker plus or they say it's too young - 1996. Can anyone advise if I can get cover on an ad hoc basis or who to go for a general policy with his added?

Cheers

Simon

Strange. When I had my Jag and Roller for weddings the insurance was under classic car. I was allowed to do an unlimited number of weddings in the year as long as I didn't exceed the mileage. The age of the vehicle for it to be classed as "classic" was 10 years. My insurance was with a company called Footman James. I don't know if they are still going.

Hi again all,

I'm still having no luck on the wedding insurance - been refused because my cab ain't old enough! Any body got any further pointers?

Cheers

If you mean Wheels from leeds, they are no more. They were my broker, they sold out to a company called Robert Nott.
