    No, it's totally the opposite if you read the comment. They take mods into account.

    Re: MIGWeb Insurance Scheme with Chris Knott Insurance

    Noooo, what i mean tim is that rather then basing your claims on the retail value of the car & then adding the retail value of any modifications to the cost you value it by taking the Glass' guide price & an "average" price for a similarly modified car on Autotrader (of course whilst including the actualy market value of the car in its standard form)

    Which in my opinion kinda defeats the objective of an insurance company, one would think that you would pay out for the value of each modification on the basis that modifications could cost a high price retail (EG £900 for a gwo C20LET engine + Cost of fitting & conversion parts tots up to about 1750 guesstimate) the car itself in an average state as seen in the autotrader could come to that alone! So you would pay out based on the Glass' guide price V's Autotrader and the driver would end up with a MASSIVE shortfall?

    Best example I could think of is something like this:

    Astra GSI with C20LET & T34 Turbo Megajolt, Cage, Bucket seats, Lighweight wheels, Track brakes, Carbon bodywork, (short list) total cost £15'000-- (remeber not exact figures so please chaps no comments on costs ect) All mods declared, insured for correct value based on expenditure.

    I would think that an insurance company would pay out based on the vehicles Glass' Guide price & the retail value of all of the modifications done to it, IE £15'000--or thereabouts (remebering that a car depreciates)

    However the way that it seems to work here is that it could possibly end up coming to less then £8'000!! thats if you can find something similarly modified!

    When calculating a total loss settlement on a modified vehicle we simply offer the market value and make a positive or negative allowance for the mods. Similar to a standard calculation we would :
    • Cross check Glass's guide to the standard spec - allowing for mileage
    • Take into consideration service history,number of owners any pre existing cosmetic damage (if known)
    • Cross check Auto trader for any similar modified examples.
    • Pitch a value that reflects desiribilty in mind of fitted body kit,alloy wheels,engine changes and cosmetic changes to interior,exterior fittings and paint.
    • We would not simply calculate quantum by taking the retail adjusted figure and add the total expenditure of Modifications in line with receipts.
    Each car is different so the logical approach is to view each vehicle on its merits. On difficult cases the claims department seeks advice via a qualified engineer (field or inhouse) before committing to offer. It often proves very difficult to agree to settle on such cases and as a result modified vehicles tend to be settled by experienced and technical adjusters

    I hope this information helps in some way.


    all of the above said does not change the fact that you cannot insure a modded vehical for 10k because thats what its worth.

    To be honest, if you have a high value car & want Agreed Value, then it's best not to call us.

    Please continue to post your experiences on here. We've had a great year so far, taken on more staff - twice now (!) - and streamlined our system to cope better so it's good that we can help you!

    To be honest, if our quote was that much more, it seems it wasn't quoted on the scheme. Maybe it didn't fit the parameters required?

    Feel free to pm brief details & i should be able to judge from that.

    No unfortunately, I just had a quick look at the website to see if that is possible.

    Tim - I will probably be in touch sometime this week as the insurance runs out on the Omega at the end of this month, one question though - does the premium go up if you tow a caravan at all? Thanks, John

    Re: MIGWeb Insurance Scheme with Chris Knott Insurance


    Please don't forget to ring us if you have received your car insurance renewal through.

    People insuring with us in the first 6 months of this year made an average recorded saving of £60.02 off their BEST quote.

    In July, we had our 3rd best month ever in 26 years of trading.

    Earlier this month, we recorded our best ever weekly figures from the forums.

    We have taken on more staff to cope with demand.

    This scheme has been set up for you as a community so we can provide the discounts on your other cars as well!

    Please ring 0800 917 2274 or 01580 752961 if ringing by mobile, and don't forget to mention the club name/reference number.

    Re: MIGWeb Insurance Scheme with Chris Knott Insurance

    NEW IDEA!!!!!! WHAT DO YOU THINK?
    We are looking at launching a system whereby, to get a quote from us, you have the option of sending your details by email to us and then we will contact you with the quote.
    This would also assist those who can't get ring us during working hours or those who would just prefer to correspond through the forum.
    My question is would this be helpful to you?
    I'd appreciate your comments.
