Laid Up Classic Car Insurance

Classic cars require suitable insurance

Third party classic car insurance

This is the most basic level of cover and is often the next cheapest option. However, you must bear in mind that cover is very limited. It will only provide cover for damage caused to other vehicles, property and people should you be involved in an accident and it is a legal requirement that you must have at least this level of cover if your classic car is being taken on the public road system.

It does not include cover for your own vehicle.

Third party, fire and theft classic car insurance

This will cover your classic car for all that has been mentioned above under third party cover plus it will also provide cover for your own vehicle should it be stolen or involved in a fire. This tends to be the next most expensive option.

Fully comprehensive classic car insurance

This level of insurance not only covers everything that has been mentioned under third party and third party fire and theft but will also include cover for damage caused to your own classic car should it be involved in an accident even if the accident is your fault. As the name of it implies, it provides the most comprehensive level of cover and tends to be the most expensive to arrange.

Hopefully, the above will be of assistance in helping you make a decision as to which is the most suitable level of classic car insurance.
