What kind of insurance does LV offer?

Well-respected mutual LV is a financial services company probably best known for offering car insurance, but also provides home, travel, pet and landlord insurance as well as life insurance and associated products. On the more specialised vehicle insurance side LV do offer classic car cover as well as multi-car, caravan and motorcycle policies.

What kind of classic insurance is available?

LV’s classic car policies include many of the features you will want to be included, in particular agreed value cover so that your loss is properly accounted for should the worst happen. Fully comprehensive cover is included in its classic car policies, as is £100,000 of legal cover, personal accident cover and the option to add on breakdown cover or an increased level of personal accident insurance.

What kind of car qualifies as a classic?

To qualify for LV’s classic car policies your car must be over 20 years old (so built no later than 1998) and have a maximum value of £40,000. All named drivers on the policy must be over the age of 30 and the car cannot be used as a daily driver but these are not uncommon with such policies. A bonus is that LV’s policy allows your classic to be driven up to 5,000 miles a year whilst still qualifying.

How do I get a quote from LV?

Although you can obtain quotes via the LV website for standard car insurance, a classic car quote requires that you contact the LV call centre to obtain an accurate quotation.

Like almost all insurers these days you can get a quote from LV Insurance by visiting their website and filling in the relevant forms, but the firm says to get the very best rates you should call them directly and speak to their knowledgeable staff who are well-versed in providing quotes for classic cars. You can even fill in a ‘call me’ form with some details and a representative will call you back at a convenient time.

Can I recommend LV Insurance?

I can endorse DH of Copthorne’s comments about LV. My 2002 BMW 316 TI SE was covered by LV last year for £241 and I have just renewed it with them for £195 (both final premiums including legal expenses and tax). Excellent company.
I’m still getting more positive feedback about LV than about any other insurer.
