The Top 8 Online Classic Car Insurance Companies

Here is my quick-link list to the best 8 classic car insurance departments within of some of the UK’s most notable car insurance companies.

We get asked all the time who we’d recommend for classic car insurance and obviously, as a trusted classic car storage facility, we have our car insurance partner that we trust and have taken a great deal of time and effort over finding – we recommend them wholeheartedly.

In truth, the answer to ‘who is the best classic car insurer?’ is:

“The one that understands your needs and is the best fit for you and your vehicles”

And therefore the best way to find out who is best is to speak to a few of them – or to get someone who understands your needs to do that on your behalf.

With that in mind, below is a list of some of the most popular ‘online’ classic car insurance companies and how to reach them.

And alternatively, if you’d like our expert classic car insurance partners* to do the hard work for you, please give us a few details of your car insurance needs and we’ll be happy to find the perfect cover for you and your car (or cars).

Without further ado then…

I have not ranked them in any particular order and they are not paying me anything to list them either unsurprisingly 🙂

However, I have chosen them based on their positioning ie. they have a specific area for classic car (or classic bike) owners and that they have a working (at the time of writing) online quote system.
