Its Insurance time for the 120, AF quoted £377, which is up a bit from last year. full NCB no accidents 6 bonus pionts ( with a hefty fine in 2017) business use and 10k max miles . Truck totally stock.
Phoned Aviva, theirs started with a 7 so didn't take that any further. NFU didn't ring back having just spent £16k on fleet ins.
Any ideas who might be competitive? need to be tight I'm afraid, its not a good couple of months with 2 MOT's 3 lots of tax and 3 policies due.

Cheers.

Totally stock lets you use the compare the comparison sites and last time i did that out of boredom my insurance halved , or it would have done if i actually owed an unmodified truck .

Can't offer any UK advice but my insurance for my car was double what the insurance for my Prado 90 was - same drivers, km, parking location, etc. You do have to wonder how they work. I mean the car is faster sure, but I can see the Prado causing more damage with its distinct lack of any modern safety features!

Direct Line working out for me, around £230 protected if i remember (shows how bad the memory is, was only January), DL not on comparison sites but have their own website and their call centre people are on the ball, business use standard.

Saga good too if you are in the age range they like.

Spoke to Saga today, best they could quote was £443, Lancaster £599, NFU £447 . Compare The Market came up with Sheilas Wheels at £380.
I guess the thing they don't like is the bonus 6 points ( SP30) and fine.

Will try DL and LV tomorrow but it looks like AF will win the day. Yaris next week and an 80 by 04/04. Both want testing too.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Well rang DL for a quote, £518 was their best.

Rang Flux and accepted £367.

While I was at it I got the 80 24V auto insured, £280 all mods declared.

Now we'll start on the Yaris .
