Where can you get quick classic car insurance quotes?

Getting an insurance quote for your everyday motor can take seconds, so why should you have to wait days to get a quote for your classic?

How can I get a quick classic car insurance quote?

Where the standard motor insurance industry is geared up to handle thousands of enquiries a day and is buzzing with competition, the market for classic car insurance is a good deal smaller. That means you won’t find any classic car insurance comparison sites (for now) and not every insurer provides the facility to get a quick online.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to stick a quote in a bottle, throw it into the sea and wait 28 days to hear back. Getting a classic car insurance quote is a lot quicker than it used to be, and there are a few things you can do to help speed up the process.

How do I get a quick classic car insurance quote online?

The good news is that some providers do allow you to get a quote online by filling in a web form, and some price comparison sites do also include classic car insurance providers in their search results, so it is possible to make a start on finding the best price with just a few clicks. It is worth bearing in mind however that it is important to go through the details with your insurer before signing on the dotted line to go through the specifics, especially when it comes to factors such as agreed values which may affect your premium.

Grove & Dean, Adrian Flux, It’s Classic Car Insurance, Footman James and Hagerty are amongst the specialist classic car insurers that offer the facility to get a quote online, while the popular price comparison sites Go Compare, Moneysupermarket and Confused.com are all able to draw on classic car insurers when providing quotes.

How do I get a quick classic car insurance quote over the phone?

To get the very best premium and policy available you have to put in the hard yards; getting on the phone to insurers and brokers who don’t offer online quotes is the only way to do it. It can be a bit of a slog but there are some things you can do to make your life a little easier.

Firstly, make sure you have all the relevant information on you and your car to hand. You may think you have it all stored in your head but the information required can vary between insurers, so it is worth having the relevant paperwork in front of you just in case; V5C, driving licence, MoT certificate - all might come in handy and save your rooting in the cupboard whilst on the phone.

Another thing you can do to save a bit of time is to get the insurers to call you rather than the other way round. Even if some insurers don’t have a quote facility online, many instead have a web form you can fill in to get them to call you. It will save you waiting in a call centre queue and will also save you the cost of the call.
