I have been with RH on my classic Mini for years but I left them this year as the once simple renewal process over the phone, also made also me feel like they no longer have any understanding of classic cars at all. Probably due to the letter I received recently saying they were under new ownership?
I too have ditched RH after many years for the exact same reason.

I’m with RH too, what’s changed with the renewal process ?

Firstly a big price hike and secondly useless call centre with useless people. Seem to have little understanding of classic cars.

Hmm, have to see what comes through then, did get a quote from Goodwood classic insurance for one car as a comparison so I’ll have something to go on

Just had cause to query my renewal with Hagerty as it had jumped £200. It seems that their system has a glitch whereby it’s not taking off Club / motor club discounts !! Needless to say a much better premium and with them again.

Mmm… a computer glitch they knew about but haven’t contacted their customers to tell them? That’s not the story I got off them.

Well generally I’d be skeptical but the chap I deal with is a friend through motorsport so would trust his answer in fairness to him.

I would be wary of Lancaster as my father had a fuse box fire on his UR quattro and they were ready to right it off for the molten fuse box and some paint scorching as it was only a 1990 Audi saloon to them! When we argued the case they eventually paid up for the body damage but wouldn't do anything with the fuse box as a new one was not available so I ended up having to sort that myself so it could be driven to the bodyshop!
