I didnt have sufficient time to sort my insurance out last year as i left it to the last minute due to kitchen refurb stealing all my time and money so i stayed with glynwoods as it was just a renewal, great price just no agreed vale as per the start of the thread

This year my priority is agreed value as i felt let down by the ERS policy regarding agreed value especially as i did not see any small print and exclusions
Adrian Flux seemed ok price wise too so we shall see come october!

Has Glynwood’s website disappeared? I’m getting nothing from www.specialistvehicleinsurance.co.uk and www.glynwood.co.uk just leads to a Wordpress error …

Their letter states nothing will change; let's see.

Last year I moved away from Glynwood and what was sold as an agreed value policy turned out not to be; the same company (ERS) as had previously insured mine at £10k would only agree a maximum of £5k - I was less than pleased. Back to Glynwood this year and once again ERS have it at £10k.

Go figure.

Okay, so they’ve shut down the Glynwood stuff and moved it all over. Got it.

Maybe someone can update PeteP’s locked thread about the club insurance scheme?

Tbh I think he's been looking at it as the conditions/deal previously hammered out with the club seem to have gone off course somewhat....

Heh, yeah. Having phoned them, I think you could say that.

They’ve never heard of any Fiat Coupé club … and their best quote for me was £880-something as opposed to my existing renewal quote of £241.

Pete is looking at insurance. At the moment we are not recommending Glynwood's new incarnation.

A problem is that we have two needs for insurance: firstly for those cars which are basically in good usable condition and used maybe daily, worth up to maybe five thousand - these need general insurance, maybe just TPFT. Second are those which have had a lot of money spent on restoration, some of which are now in better than showroom and are basically new cars - and logically, worth ten, fifteen, or twenty grand; maybe more. In such cases we want to be able to insure then at a higher, and often highly contentious, value, to protect the investment to some extent. These high agreed values much harder to agree with insurance companies.

In most cases as well we want recovery cover: most mainline recovery companies won't cover cars over fifteen years old.

Yet sadly there is not yet an understanding that the coupe is, or is becoming, a classic car: if your car is newer than 1997 forget it...

Not an easy task.

Totally understand – these are the same problems all modern classics have.

Ridiculously, I get the best prices (by a huge margin) from Direct Line nowadays. Even the specialist brokers I used to use in my Porsche owning days can’t come close.

I realise I’m sacrificing quality of service when needing to actually make any claims, but saving £500+ per year makes up for that – and they give a 10k mile allowance, permit commuting use, and include a free courtesy car. No classic specialist will match that.

As Neil says, I am starting to look at other insurers for our club members coupes.

If the cars were older it would be easy, unfortunately it may not be a quick process.

We must all do our part for the planet.

I chatted with Barnacle about this situation at the FCSS 10th anniversary celebration bash. And decided to sit back and see just what Academy would offer me.

Renewal is at end of month-yet nothing from them as of today.

This led me to be the one to ring them just now.

I've just simply been put back to a Glynwood office, and very nicely was told they are having to do everything manually as they are between two computer systems.

I'm told my quote is due to be with me by the 25th - 3 days before renewal on the 28th.

They couldn't give me a quote over the phone. I've asked them if they can send the quote in 7 days. Think that's reasonable-as I want to compare it.

Not feeling the love at the moment. And this year I'm not feeling like doing all the donkey work of pictures, forms and evidence- I end up working more as the customer then the firm I employ!!!!

Maybe they will make up for the customer service with a remarkably good quote...?

Will let you know when I hear!
