My Guide to Buying Insurance for your Bike

60 quid seems reasonable.

Yep but I now pay £15 a month rather than the £4.50  due to a general policy increase. That said it has now gone from silly cheap to pretty reasonable so I'm not complaining too much

More a reminder of the policy change as I'd forgotten your earlier post

yeah it's a shame they increased their premiums, but they obviously got stung.

Iv stuck with m&s and paid the extra as it still seems the cheapest way to get them covered at home and away. It also covers them abroad which I'm not sure if others do  Undecided

I believe that cover away from the home (personal possessions cover) is always Worldwide...but don't hold me to that.

Just renewed my household content with AA insurance. I did as blackers suggested and used a comparison site to begin with. The AA website is a constantly crashing abomination, but their cover seemed good for my requirements (my bikes live in the house).

Cheers Blackers
Keep it foolish...

I've read on STW that people insure their custom bikes for RRP value. Thoughts on this?

I've shopped around massively so the RRP is much more for all the components than what I actually paid? Or would you just go with total receipt value?

You can get a bike shop to value it, type it onto some headed paper and stamp it. Best to check that the insurers will accept it but seems the accepted method. Dont forget lots of pictures of it too.

I'll ask the guys in town then.

I've got a folder full of receipts too. And a wicked good spreadsheet. Wink I've heard insurance companies appreciate components weights in grams!  Smile
