We're excited to celebrate the New Year by launching our own classic car insurance scheme in association with Peter James Insurance whose experts have designed a scheme to provide real value and benefit to our members. The team at Peter James Insurance will also handle all aspects of administering the scheme. Designed exclusively for our members, Enthusiasts of British Motor Vehicles Insurance provides access to a range of benefits that are included in each policy at no additional charge.
Why choose Enthusiasts of British Motor Vehicles Insurance?
Policy benefits can include*:
What does free salvage retention mean?
Few of us ever consider what would happen to our treasured classic in the event of a total loss. Maybe we just assume that we’d be paid out the value and that would be the end of it, and with most insurance companies this would likely be the case. Sometimes you might get the opportunity to buy the car back or have the value of the salvage deducted from your settlement offer, but in most instances, it’ll get sold on at a salvage auction with the proceeds of the sale going back to the insurer to offset the pay-out.
The Enthusiasts of British Motor Vehicles scheme is different. If the car cannot be economically repaired then, under the terms of your policy, you will receive the full agreed value of the car (minus any excess) PLUS you can have the salvage returned with no deduction from the settlement. This could provide a valuable supply of parts which might keep another classic on the road or you might even be able to rebuild the car yourself if you’ve the skills and available parts.
The salvage retention benefits apply to all cars over 20 years old on a multi-car policy too so will cover all ages of classic car (not just pre-85’s) if you’re fortunate enough to have a collection.
You’ll need to tell Peter James that you are a group member in order to have this benefit included within your policy at no additional charge.
