Frequently Asked Questions

When is a vehicle considered a classic?

There are many different definitions of a classic car or bike but we view a classic vehicle as one that is older than 30 years. Vehicles older than 40 years also qualify for a tax exemption.

Can I insure my modern vehicle and classic vehicle on one policy?

Yes, with Peter James Insurance (part of the Kingfisher Insurance family), we can arrange a policy where you can combine classic cars, vintage motorcycles, modern cars and bikes, or even commercial vehicles. A multi-vehicle policy offers the advantage of one renewal date, saving you time and effort.

What is agreed value?

Agreed value is where an insurer has agreed the value of your vehicle as part of the insurance contract. This means in the event of a total loss, the value show on your insurance documentation i.e. your agreed value would be the amount that you receive (minus a policy excess if applicable). This can be useful if your vehicle is unique or special in some way, for example if the car has had a famous owner or has historical significance.
