Lockdown Boredom

Post by 111Robin »

All I seem to do these days is take the cars out, wash them and put them away again, fed up with not being able to drive them. Anyway, had both out the other day before the weather turned to winter again (sleet today ffs), longing for a return to normality.

I'm concerned about racking up the miles the number of times they've been in and out of the garage, maybe better calm it down a bit :)

Beautiful cars. Do your insurance rates get discounted because nobody is driving? Rates seem to be dropping here in the states.

I certainly haven't been offered any reduction on my classic car policy, it's maybe only applicable to everyday insurance policies, not too sure.

Minutes after writing this I received my renewal notice from the AA for my everyday car, premium bumped up by £30, I think I'll be having words.

True, the reductions seem to be only happening on everyday car rates. My Hagerty policy has not been reduced at all even though I am basically not driving any of the cars covered by it!

Well at least the AA took into account the lack of use since March so have kept the premium the same as last year. It still hacks me off that they show me as having a no claim incident due to collision with a 3rd party, said 3rd party being my garage door when it was caught by the wind. I suppose technically it is a 3rd party but I'd have a hard job pursuing a claim against it!!!!. Maybe try one of these no win/no fee lawyers, open and shut case perhaps :lol:
