Here's what we can do for you and your passion for classic vehicles.
What we do
Our company was founded by Rod Mitchell, who was previously Managing Director of one of the UK’s pioneering classic car brokers – John Scott and Partners. Prior to this he was the UK CEO of the Automotive and Private Client division at AON – the world’s largest insurance broker.
From this experience we have created an exclusive insurance arrangement for people in the classic car business. We also specialise in insurance for collectors, covering all their vehicles from everyday cars, specialist and prestige vehicles, motorcycles and literally anything on wheels. By insuring this all under one policy we can achieve significant savings in premium.
We focus on providing an old fashioned level of service with no automatic telephones, just a very experienced client manager allocated to each client who can be contacted out of hours or at weekends. It starts from simply doing what we say we will do, at the promised time, with people who have top class expertise and experience. It is the level of service our collector clients demand and which our successful trade clients deliver to their customers.
Specialists in service
We would love to have the opportunity to quote for your business when it falls due for renewal. A copy of your existing schedule is a good starting point to give you an indication of the premium, or if you let us have your renewal date we will contact you a month or so in advance.
Rod and the Classic Insurance Services team have many years of experience providing insurance cover for collections both small and large. For a business experienced in insuring cars of all ages, we have an appropriately traditional approach to business. Some may call it old fashioned, we prefer to call it classic. For example, there are no “click here to buy” buttons on this website. We are not (and nor do we ever want to be) set up to offer the low cost, low service off-the-shelf solutions you might find elsewhere. Instead, our business is built on the often-overlooked foundations of individual customer service and tailored insurance solutions providing appropriate and flexible cover whether the car is on the road, in storage or in transit anywhere in the world.
Our commitment to service can be seen throughout our operation – the small experienced team of dedicated client managers will personally manage every aspect of your policy and are contactable out of business hours and at weekends if needed.
Classic Insurance Services knows the classic car industry inside out and we have the underwriting backing of some of the country’s major insurers. We are old hands at insuring classic cars and we look forward to discussing your own insurance requirements.
