Had quote from Locktons which was reasonable, did you move for price or better overall cover?

I've often used Matt at Henderson Taylor. Nice lad and usually the cheapest with proper cover such as main dealer windscreen if required, buy back if written off etc.
Unfortunately he couldn't get near my multicar quote this year, so I've added it onto that with admiral. £220 per year but I didn't know they do agreed value so will have to look into that.

I'm sure though that the level of cover won't be as good as the specialist companies. In fact I'm sure I tried to get an OPC windscreen for my GT3 when I was last with admiral and it wasn't worth the hassle. I had to pay the £800 then claim it back according to the barely understandable Indian guy on the phone. I just didn't like the sound of it.
That's the only problem with Admiral. When you get a quote and take out a policy you get an English call centre (Wales actually) but when you ring to make an adjustment or windscreen claim you get passed around an Indian call centre. Very frustrating.

To be honest I'm just winging it this year by going with Admiral. The car rarely moves due to other things going on. I will look into "proper" cover next year when I'm actually going to do some decent miles.

Aviva multicar seems to provide a better policy than admiral. You get a choice of repairer from their list, which includes a couple of Porsche approved body shops.

AIB were almost £1k more, although arguably better cover.

Mines coming up, i used Bridle as my broker and insured by Keith Michael's, just taken out another policy for a JDM Impreza with them being cheapest (didn't search everyone but adrian flux couldn't get close), so might end up renewing with them if they come up trumps on the 996 again,

They offer all mods covered and do offer a guaranteed value that i will be doing this year, can i ask how was this achieved? did they want pictures etc? did you have to haggle on what the price was offered?

To add Bridle have a good call centre calls answered quickly and seem to be a small group of people so get to deal with the same person each time ie ask for the guy you want or have dealt with before, i was even called back out of office hours to sort a problem i wanted amending that day.

Cheers

Ive been with Admiral for the last 5 years although each year they seem to get slightly dearer than I can get the same cover for elsewhere. But, I stayed with them out of a misguided sense of loyalty.

This last year however they were significantly more expensive than Hastings, so I moved to them for £400 a year fully comp.

Interestingly, Admiral were also 50% more expensive than Sheila`s Wheels for the wifes car this year, so we moved her car way from them also.

I used Competition Car Insurance, now part of Footman James, they were cheapest for both 996 & 964 and were prepared to tailor the policy around needs, i.e trackday cover, agreed value, salvage buy back etc etc

I've pretty much contacted them all over the last few years with varying quotes, service and cover. Manning UK have out shone them all in every area (including price) and happy to recommend.

Give A Manning a call. I have been with them for years. Great service and price has come down year on year.

My renewal is coming up, I'm currently with Admiral, multi-car, for the 850R and the 911.

I'm somewhat stuck with Admiral I think - whilst the total bill is £800 half of that is the 850R, which sounds steep given that it's the same price as a 911.

However, a quote from any other insurer (and I've tried them all) is typically around £2,000 for the Volvo, for a 41 year old male, no points, no claims, car is parked on private grounds.

Also with Manning (no 's') and have been with them for two or three years now. English speakers with a good command of English which is increasingly rare these days. Includes some track days if required. Very professional although I have not had to claim so it may be a different story. I hope not.

I have also been with Competition Car Insurance who were good and about the same price. I am also with Aviva for their third party other cars cover. They are not too bad. £20 admin fee for any changes Rolling Eyes .

Sheila wheels I have found ( through my wife when she wanted me added) are cheap crap and I would put them with Adrian 'bureaucracy' Flux.

I shopped around but have been with E sure for 2 yrs now. Needed a new windscreen last year and they had no problem with gwtting me a genuine Porsche screen. They have been fine to deal with, although no accident claim experience. thumbsup

Accident claim experience is key. I forgot to mention, the wife had a claim through Admiral earlier in the year and we had no problems with Admiral at all.

The only thing we didnt realise as we didnt read the small print was that unless you pay an extra premium for a "like for like loan car", you only get whatever courtesy car the repair place has - so in this case her massive Range Rover sized Ford Edge was replaced by a Corsa whilst they repaired it. Not what you want 2 days before you are due to go on a 300 mile road trip with a family of 4 and all their holiday gear. The repair shop took about 8 weeks to repair the car, due to parts being on back order at Ford. But that wasnt Admirals fault.
