Lancaster Insurance

Hi

Do any of you guys have any experience in insuring with Lancaster? My Series
3 hardtop (circa 1984) has been happily sitting on my drive for 6 months
covered by Lancasters 'specialist' Land Rover comprehensive cover. I
recently sent off a few photographs to support my Agreed Valuation update.
Lo and behold, I have just had an email saying my cover is cancelled because
I 'clearly have a VAN', which is 'not part of our service under classic
vehicles'.

Would make some sort of sense if their current ad in Land Rover Monthly
didn't show as an example of their dedication to Land Rover cover a nice
glossy red Defender 90 HARDTOP...
Is my Landie persona non grata because she is limestone and green, old, a
series, or is this more sinister!

Van/Hardtop... whither mine??

I also have a hardtop and sent off some piccys and all seems well.
Mine does have those funny long windows with the rounded corners let
into the sides of my hard top though................

Re: Lancaster Insurance

Mein Gott

maybe it is the amount of the agreed value, for all I have been saying about
insurance I have stuck with my purchase price of two grand as agreed value,
notwithstanding what I have spent.

Insurance is a con an imposition I consider it as a tax rather than any
benefit much as the road tax is, I don't really expect I shall ever get
anything back from them

Its a ****ing joke thats what it is.

Perhaps you ought to quietly point this out with a copy to the ASA?

Re: Lancaster Insurance

You should write to the letters page in Land Rover Monthly. Insurance
companies are getting scandalous.

I added soundproofing to my Series 3 and Sureterm Direct cancelled my
insurance. They said it was an unacceptable modification to add
soundproofing underneath the seats.

I am with Graham Sykes and at the moment I have had no problems. However, we
shall see if my Africa trip for four months causes any problems.

Thats nuts! They didn't bat an eye lid at a near on 200 bhp 4.2 Jag lump
and three speed auto conversion in my IIa .... then again it doesn't have
sound proofing either.

Series III hardtop is listed as "van" with them, too - mine is.

Re: Lancaster Insurance

It seems to me that all these stories of insurance do not show any
consistancy, it looks very random to me.

I guess to some extent they are trying to compute an overall picture of
risk, so that for some a big engine mod is not going to put them into the
boy racer category, but for others that is more likely.
