I don't think there's any one company that's good for everyone. It all depends on personal circumstances (mods/post code etc). I tried the specialist companies but they all wanted silly money.
true enough it all depends on where u live if i wanted to do the same in a city it would probably be more

Hi,welcome.I have been with the NFU,untill they pushed my premium up from 317 to 574 per year with no excuses other than it was what the underwritters demanded.The l.r is a 110 td5 crew cab with no mods at all. Now with Aviva at 378,per year.Every pound helps.

From experience the NFU are very efficient. Have had problems myslef with one of the LRO mag advertised insurers after making a claim. It would be interesting to maybe here from others who have had to make a claim their experiences as this would make an interesting forum Topic, as it might show that some insurers are better than others -over to you admin.
Cheers,

Peter

Funnily enough, I binned my local NFU branch this year, switching back to Flux for the Defender, who had insured my old Disco a few years back.

If there had only been up to 50 difference in the renewal premiums then I'd have stuck with NFU as I think their policy is pretty darn good (Defacto 5* rated I think), but the lure of over 150 was too great....  A risk perhaps but NFU will get a crack again next year, as Flux from memory tend to be cheap year 1 and then try to have your eyes out in year 2.

Will start a separate thread on claim experiences.... thanks for the nod Peter  :)
