MAKE SURE YOUR SPARES ARE SAFE

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Ask for re­ceipts. Many au­to­jum­blers only give re­ceipts when prompted.

Safely store re­ceipts in a place where you won’t lose them.

Pho­to­graph or pho­to­copy re­ceipts on for es­pe­cially im­por­tant or ex­pen­sive parts.

Pho­to­graph ev­ery­thing. No part is too small and it helps build up your case for the in­sur­ance com­pany.

Write down an in­ven­tory – ei­ther hand­writ­ten or prefer­ably as a com­puter doc­u­ment – and in­clude images where pos­si­ble.

Date stamp photographs to prove it ties in with your pol­icy dates. Most dig­i­tal cam­eras have this func­tion built in. Photographs taken with mo­bile phones may dif­fer, but the func­tion can be turned on.

Pho­to­graph spares with the car to which they be­long prom­i­nent in the back­ground.

Pho­to­graph the spares where they are kept.

Keep these files in more than one place. For ex­am­ple, on your com­puter, as well as a sep­a­rate hard drive.
