Spider Classic Insurance Advice!
Hi Guys, sorry to post another insurance thread, but ill briefly explain my dilemma:
I'm turning 25 in a few weeks time, and am very keen in buying a V6 Spider as a present to myself! However a standard insurance policy is too expensive... (£1300 per year, double the £600 i pay for my twinny currently). I only use it less than once a week, my annual milage is less than 4000 miles. I was looking into classic policies but it seems that you need access to another vehicle, this would be my only car though.
Does anyone know of any insurance companies who would insure me with that as my only car? can i use my parents car as my other vehicle? (even if they live in a different town to me?) does a moped count as 'another vehicle'?
I don't use it for work or anything so it's just for pleasure. Otherwise i way toying with buying another really cheap crap car and using that as my main vehicle, however that would mean another car to tax and mot etc... the combined insurance policies would still be less than the quote on the spider though!!
I don't really know what to do, I really want a V6 spider it just sucks that insurance is the only thing in the way!!
