    Hi All, just wondering does anyone on here have a classic policy on a 1994 or older commercial 4x4. Hilux surf to be exact. Any recommendations for companies that would insure it.Thanks in advance

    Try Autoline in Newry. They insure my MGB and was on to them last week about insuring an old 1980's Pajero. They had no prob as long as the vehicle was at least 20 years old. They do however limit your mileage so wouldn't suit if you were running it as your main car. My mileage limit is 1500 miles per annum (which I never even come near) but for 170 Euros full comp it's great value

    Thaks for the info 12gauge. Its for my brother, he has a main car anyway so should be ok. Is there any requirement for the vehicle to be registered as private do you know, as its commercially registered at present. Thanks again.

    I wouldn't think so, there's a lot of Landies out there nearly all commercials and they're insured as classics. A few of the lads in the local vintage club have old vans and such like and again no issues with the classic insurance. To be honest the insurance company are fairly easy going about it, mustn't be a lot of claims I suppose. They do ask if you have another normal car policy and realise that most of these yokes spend their time in sheds around the country with lads like me looking up at the sky to see if I'll take it out or not. :D I do think however that you have to be aged 25 and above to get it. Friend tried it for his teenage daughter thinking it would be a great way to get her on the road but no joy :(
