    Afternoon

    Does anyone have reccomendations for Co's they are using to cover their LHD Z's?

    Having a few issues getting quotes at all or that aren't extortionate...

    Thanks in advance

    I use Aviva. It's some kind of classic policy through a broker. Very reasonable.

    In the past I've used Direct Line, then they went up so I currently use Adrian Flux, you get a decent discount if you are a Pistonheads member too. They also don't add much for modifications. I had a claim a couple of years ago and they were spot on, not a single issue, paid up straight away, protected no claims so my premium actually went down!

    Evening a somewhat delayed update... I tried a few alledged specialists however they all seemed to not really be bothered, or as soon as I stated LHD, there was the sucking of air through teeeth like an old builder... Spurs fan, I tried Adrain Flux as had used them before for my Golf but tbh the girl I spoke to was as helpful as a choclate tea-pot and couldn't really be bothered, it all seemed a bit too much hard work for her...

    Eventually got a classic policy via A-Plan brokers at a very reasonable rate (£100 cheaper than anywhere else...) who could not be more helpful and fully got the whole LHD, low mileage (1998 on 25k) and garaged away from registered address, with agreed value and PNC. Thoroughly reccomend them for at least a quote.
