OPIN­ION

Agreed value in­sur­ance is in­valu­able to my mind. It en­sures that should the worst hap­pen, the po­ten­tial dou­ble-whammy of not only los­ing a car that I’m deeply in­vested in (fi­nan­cially and emo­tion­ally) but then be­ing left to make com­pro­mises on what I can spend to re­place it be­cause I’m out of pocket can be avoided.

If you’ve spent many years with your beloved clas­sic and in­nu­mer­able hours main­tain­ing and restor­ing it, then you may feel no amount of money can make up for the loss of your pride and joy. All the more rea­son then to en­sure that it is pro­tected in the full.

The process couldn’t be sim­pler: In my case, the Tri­umph Sports Six Club val­ued my TR7. All I had to do was com­plete a form and pop it in the post with some pho­tos back­ing up my im­pres­sions of its con­di­tion. There is a charge for this, but the peace of mind is price­less.
