In­surer and Clas­sic Friendly team up

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Fuzz Town­shend’s Clas­sic Friendly garage scheme has taken the de­ci­sion to join forces with an in­surance com­pany, fol­low­ing the Gov­ern­ment’s re­cent con­tro­ver­sial de­ci­sion to ex­clude pre-1977 cars from manda­tory an­nual MoT test­ing.

Clas­sic Friendly and Her­itage in­surance have part­nered up in or­der to of­fer a clas­sic car garage net­work of re­stor­ers and ser­vice providers to pol­icy mem­bers. They will also of­fer mem­bers a com­pre­hen­sive check, dubbed the Road­wor­thi­ness Safety In­spec­tion, for all pre-1977 ve­hi­cles. Si­mon Down­ing, Clas­sic Friendly com­mer­cial oper­a­tions mar­ket­ing man­ager, says: ‘Clas­sic car re­stor­ers are few and far be­tween and it’s not so easy to just find some­where you can get your car fixed. ‘If some­one wants a Jaguar spe­cial­ist, we have them. And the same can be said for most mar­ques. ‘All of Her­itage’s pol­icy hold­ers will be di­rected to Clas­sic Friendly, where we’ll man­age the com­plete re­pair claim process through­out our net­work. All Her­itage pol­icy-hold­ers will for the first time have a ded­i­cated net­work for all their clas­sic mo­tor­ing needs.’ clas­sicfriendly.co.uk
