Seems good to me. Less than what I'm paying with Footman James

With the current values of 993 that's the right ball park, you may get better value elsewhere, . Used to be much cheaper, but that's when 993s were 20k cars. Get a valuation and check you are insured for the right amount and have agreed valuation in the quote.

I still use Classic Line, I pay less than £472 but mileage limited to 5,000pa so comparisons not always that easy.

Best for me on a 997, and no claims bonus not required.

Ditto with Classicline. £50k value, 5k miles per annum, garaged at home, all for £238.68 Thumb

I switched to them last year - my previous insurer ramped up their premiums for no apparent reason whereas ClassicLine were much lower and don't require the tracker either (saving over £200 and making the cost difference even more pronounced).

Adrian Flux worked out best for my classic policy, and they secured an agreed value (which for me is the most important thing about the policy)

Not impressed with Classicline actually....

Given feedback on this thread, I requested a quote. On line would not give me a quote. Eventually got a call and quote, which was ok....

I had 2 weeks until renewal and asked if they can agree value of my car and then if agreed, will proceed with premium and extra for agreed value.

They confirmed this was acceptable. I sent my form and pics for r agreed value, but never heard anything back. I also requested a summary of the quote, but did not receive this either.

Chased again, but not heard anything. Left with no choice but to go elsewhere!

Renewal time for me this month

Living in East London post code has never been cheap , regardless of car frustrated

47, max protected NCB, Tracker ,garaged.

I'm through Lockton , coming in a whisker over £1k.

Fantastic policy , European breakdown worth a lot , esp with Dinslaken and Spa trips last (this) year . PCGB trackday covered....
They gave me a "real" Porsche windscreen on the old car without quibbling.

BUT .... It's a limited mileage policy. 7,500 pa,. Which I just about scrape.
It's a 2nd car for weekends , though roadtrip miles mount up Confused

Any other firms similar to Lockton / Chubb I can try ?

Did you pay the 24 quid fee? Otherwise it won’t go further, does state this on form Thumb

I have a multicar policy with aviva. Pork alone is £470ish. The deciding factor for me is who are their approved body shops. Luckily the local Porsche/ Aston/Ferrari approved Place (chartwells) is on their list.

The wife’s Audi will look a little out of place when it’s in next week for a car park ding!

No, but was told can do prior to agreeing to go ahead. If I misunderstood and they wanted the valuation fee no matter what, then I would have expected someone to tell me after my email to them...... didn't send over quote summary either!

Thing is, I would have gone with them.

Oh well.

Now have both Porsches and our Q7 with Classicline. The 997.2 has just been renewed, extra value now £50k (they were happy to accept PCGB valuation which was free instead of the £24 option), extra driver and the same price as last year 7500 miles, £674 inc trackdays (conditions) and Euro breakdown.

The 996 (£12k) was only £324 inc breakdown 5000 miles.

The Q7 renewal with another company came in around a grand, best I could fine was £890. Classicline did it for £550 as we had the other cars with them and again included Euro breakdown which would normally be another £60/65. This was with the 12/15000 miles we do and business use.

Best thing for me was that the 997.2 renewal came in around the same price as last year, I then added a driver and a couple of grand extra value and the premium stayed the same, finally an insurance company that wants to keep my business.

They said they could also quote my works van when it comes up next month too.

Classicline for me too, with my five cars. The Morris 8 and GT6 were both an outragous £75, (inc breakdown)
