    Hi,

    we just insured our Kombi with Shannon's. They have ads on SBS. AAMI would only insure it for 'market value' which was a joke.
    Hope this helps.

    Buy it then find the insurance. Gives you incentive. (and a 68)

    insurance

    hi i was with nrma as they will insure a kombi up to 6000 dollars max as long as you paid that much for it and it was only 320 with 65 per cent no claim bonus on a 4000 dollar car,aami wouldnt insure for more than market price which was 1800 dollars and would cost 500 dollars a year.
    changed kombis and nrma wouldnt insure my 10000 dollar kombi but aami would for a premium of 700 dollars a year,
    i think it depends on who is on the other end of the phone sometimes but aami usally wants to see that there insuring what its worth,which is fair enough.
    shannons seems a bit of price hike going on there for a daily driver any way good luck with the mysteries of car insurance.:rolleyes:

    Shannons insured my '63 SC for what it was worth after the restoration which I thought was pretty good.

    Hard to give good advice if we dont know where you are. Update your profile and add location. You need advice applicable to your state/city.

    Try GIO as well, I've got an agreed value of 5000 for 275 a year. Shannons wouldn't insure me as I'm too young for them

    Shannon's won't insure campers. They refer you to they're caravan sister company, who: won't insure campers over 30 years old.

    Therefore, I'm toast and will be asking you all to sell me your camper for 1800 if mine is written off.

    Barney is insured with Shannon's, he is a camper and they also inspected him after restoration to a much higher agreed value...how strange you got that advice..:wtf:

    Oh, if only I had off street parking. Then I could enjoy the luxuries of Shannons. Damned high-risk punk kids walking by looking for badges and hub-caps and raising my premiums! :)

    Will be sure and try again when next im due!

    After June, Warren's in hibernation until the summer anyway (unless my step-dad takes him for a blast or three, which I hope he does!). It'll be back to Delhi and a shitty Royal Enfield for dingo.

    Dingo.

    I called Shannon's to insure my '76 camper and they refused. They said that they wouldn't insure my Kombi because it had gas in it, which meant that it was a motorhome or something stupid like that. They also mentioned that because it was fitted gas (with an access hatch etc) it was different to campers that just had a couple of small gas bottles behind the front passengets seat. My brother's '74 camper, which just has the small gas bottles behind the seat, is insured with them though, for 6000 unseen but I'm not sure about the cost. He was also able to get a higher agreed value if he took it to them for an inspection, which I think he was planning to.

    Called Shannons, just started talking to the guy about the Kombi, (general chit-chat) he asked how much I paid for it, I told him & he said no worries we will insure you for that amount.
    R.A.C.Q were going to insure it for market value $1200. (wot the????)
