I have bought an electric car through my small limited company to replace my previous personal car. I thought it would be a simple matter to ring my insurer (allianz) and take out a new policy in the name of the company instead. However, allianz have no interest in this and I have tried three other insurance companies, none of which would quote for a company-owned car.
I have 20 years driving with no claims, no penalty points. Previous premiums were c. 500 euro.
I have spoken to a broker who sighed and told me that this will be difficult and expensive to arrange and that he will get back to me in a few days.
What is going on here? Anyone have any tips on insurance companies who are open for this type of business?
