I've been with LV for many years and every year my policy goes up, I call them, then I get a reduction.

Didn't bother calling them this year though, as my policy went up by just 60p.


They tried taking the P with me, treated me like a mug. My premium with LV went DOWN £27 this year but that was still £135 more than buying it as a new customer. Based on that, you’re could well be paying 30% more than you would have paid as a new customer. Out of curiosity, did you get a fresh quote from them as a new customer and not just one as an existing mug, sorry, customer? Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto

Scotland 2011 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Lago Grey

My problem is in moving insurance companies because of all the additions I've made to my FL2.
LV have it all detailed and providing the quote is decent and doesn't spiral upwards I'd rather keep it with them.
It just saves all the time & hassle of going through it with each insurance company.
I can't get an online 'comparison site' quote either because of all the additions.

The additions are in the main all LR bits - roof rails/bars, leather interior, tinted windows, rear spoiler, retro fitted sat nav, bigger LR wheels & tyres, Mantec protection plates, towbar etc etc ... there's a heck of a lot to go through!!! 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲

Now no added 'orange bits'.... gone all 🔳 🔲 "monochrome" 🔲 🔳

United Kingdom 2013 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Firenze Red

Ron I suspect no one is going to worry about that list too much. What insurance companies really want to know is that you have not slipped in a V8 and lowered the suspension but being cautious is better than being stung I guess. 51 Series one passed/sold on half restored to a mate to finish years ago.
Lots of Euro Trash
53 Series one low mileage let go foolishly years ago looking at current prices.
Series 2A Safari restored fully while in Saudi Arabia years ago, sold on to a Brit.
FL2 MY10 TD4 GS traded in at 2 years
FL2 MY13 TD4 GS Current

ronp as we use modification friendly insurers for our specialist 4x4 policies these Mods wouldn't be an issue for us. And you can email over a full list which we can attach to your policy to ensure everything is noted. I would advise to check your cover as many mainstream 'standard' insurers will cover a modified vehicle but exclude modifications in a claim, so if there is an accident (let's hope there isn''t one!) then its the market value on a standard FL2 that gets paid out.
Our insurers cover the modifications as well as the car - so if you have a few it would be worth looking into Smile

Have a great day and give us a go at renewal Thumbs Up 01635 874646

Rather than shop (sod) around last year when I bought the car, I simply kept the existing policy with Axa and paid an additional premium. Just had renewal in at £700 Sad so went on to their site to run it through as new customer and been quoted £1400 + Laughing Must remember to get my cheque in the post in the morning Rolling with laughter
