Advice on Insurance and Agreed Values
Kevin Cooper is the Club's contact for insurance matters, who may be contacted by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
For Club Members
Owners may wish to contact the Brokers who advertise with us from the list at the foot of the page
Please remember when contacting an insurance broker that they will require information that only you can provide.
The Club cannot quote an estimated insurance premium as individual circumstances will differ; for example, your age, your driving history, records of accidents and your postcode are all fed into the broker's computer so that they can give you the best of several quotations.
It is also a good idea to hunt around several brokers, both associated with the Club and completely independent of us, for the best quotation.
This service is available free of charge to Club Members.
It is a good idea to get an Agreed Value as an Agreed Value can make a significant difference to the amount that you car will be worth in the case of a total loss, so it is well worth getting it valued by the Club, or by a competent motor engineer (which will probably be much more costly, but also more thorough).
- Your Club Membership details.
- Six photographs of the car: Front; Back; Both FULL sides (we use one of these photographs as a visual record in our database); Under the bonnet; The interior from the passenger side with door fully open.
- Details of enhancements such as: New or refurbished engine, gearbox, axle etc.; Respray; New interior; New headlining; Body-off rebuild/restoration.
Remember that if you have made serious enhancements to the car you should let us and your insurance broker/company know! 'Wear and tear' replacements do not count as enhancements.
Make sure you state the full condition of the car, its registration number and build date or first registered date.
Also state when you bought it and for how much plus anything else that you think will help us to make a judgement; a past RSSOC Concours prize winner, for example?
The RSSOC will give you a postal valuation on non-member cars for a fee of £35.00
