I just had a shocking call to Footman James. I have insured my classic cars with them since they were called Aon but now things have changed drastically. They will now NOT insure any military vehicle manufactured in the USA with the exception of WW2 Jeeps. They told me that there is no problem with European vehicles, including ex Soviet but specifically US machines are excluded. I tried to push the joker on the phone to find the exact reasons for this. He got very uncomfortable when I enquired down avenues I cannot recite on this forum but ultimately stated that it was a company policy decision rather than any specific risk reason. I then called two more companies to find out if this was a trend in the industry. Both Adrian Flux and Cherished Vehicle Insurance both stated that there was no problem whatsoever insuring US made vehicles. So I guess this is the last year I use FJ.:embarrassed:
Hi, This summer I wanted to raise a bit of money for Help for Heroes. My plan was to bring my DUKW to a show I've been invited to and give kids rides in the back around the field. This unfortunately raises insurance proplems my brokers told me). 1). If a kid trips on the bangs their head ( if I'm showing the vehicle while it's static) my road insurance won't cover me (they said). 2). I can carry kids for free as the field temporarily comes under the Highways act (they said) for the duration of the show BUT if I charge people it is for 'Hire & reward' and the personal, social & domestic insurnce won't cover it. (I daren't even think about driving licence classes). I've rang around insurance companies and nobody would touch it. Does anyone have any ideas who would cover the vehicle? Thanks Don
