Hi all. Just a quick question about insurance. Currently repairing my mini on the drive, can anyone tell me the best way of insuring? It's a second car, it's not going anywhere (yet!), but I would hate some toerag to nick it before I've even finished!!!

Insure it with a classic car policy.

Most Classic Car insurance companies offer 'laid up' policies that will cover you for Fire & Theft. The fact your car is on the driveway may be a stumbing block.

As mentioned if the car is pretty much complete most will do a laid up or project insurance. Because mine is mostly in boxes I can't get anything to cover it.

Not everyone garages their classic, particularly those with multiple cars or no garage.

Thanks. A laid up policy sounds like what I am looking for. Cheers all.
