High Value Car Insurance

Whether you own a supercar, classic, luxury or high value car, knowing that it is insured correctly is vital. We are passionate about cars and understand that for many, their car or collection of vehicles is their pride and joy.

Flint Private Clients is our specialist department that handles high net worth cover, including high value car insurance. Our concierge insurance arrangement works 24 hours a day for private individuals. The team has access to specialist insurers – including some who don’t deal directly with the public – whether you are looking for an agreed value policy or the flexibility of any driver, your cover is tailored precisely to your needs.

High value motor insurance is usually for cars worth more than £40,000. Your insurance could be a single car or multiple vehicles under one contract. Car insurance can also be incorporated into your household policy so that you only ever have one renewal date for all your property.

Our highly trained Private Client team deals with every aspect of your insurance, from providing risk details to underwriters, securing the quote and sorting documentation.

Helping you find the right insurer

At Flint Insurance, we understand that selecting precisely the right insurance from the right provider can be a complex and daunting
task.

With standard car insurance – the upper “agreed value” limits will be too low for high value vehicles, so any loss would likely be underinsured.

With high value car insurance – extra emphasis is placed on both the “agreed value” for your vehicle and flexibility around which garage make the repairs – in the event of a claim.  With Flint, you can be confident in the vehicle’s valuation, and the repair/reinstatement cover is suitable.

Our Private Client team is on hand to guide you through each step of brokering car insurance quotes and negotiating a policy that is right for you and your car or collection.

We appreciate that our clients are often time-poor, so briefly speak with our Private Client team and let them negotiate on your behalf. We have examples where we’ve assumed insurance for clients, put superior cover in place and still saved them money – you will never pay over the odds with Flint.

Our specialist insurer panel comprises experienced high value insurers, some very well-known and other niche premium home underwriters only available via an expert insurance broker like Flint. Choosing from several providers means that we can recommend the very best cover and most cost-effective premiums.

    Questions you might have

    Why do I need a high value car insurance policy?

    Not all car insurance is the same. Higher value cars (and collections), with higher sums insured, require bespoke cover to ensure sufficient protection is in place.

    Where standard car insurance will have restrictive limits on the insurable value of items, a high value or high-performance vehicle will establish a pre-agreed car value so that you receive full compensation in the event of a total loss.

    Using a suitable garage for your particular vehicle repairs is also an issue; it needs to be quality controlled using only genuine manufacturer parts. Similarly, whilst your car is at the garage, any courtesy car should be of a similar standard.

    With Flint Private Client we look at every aspect of your car in detail and make recommendations for complete cover.

    I own several cars; can I have one policy?

    Yes, by combining your cars under a single policy you can often save on your premium, improve your cover and reduce your administration burden. Speak to your Flint Private Client account handler who can give you an idea of cost savings.

    What factors will affect my premium?

    There is a wide range of risk factors calculated as part of your high value car insurance policy: car security (including where it is parked overnight), the number of drivers, how you use your vehicle, annual mileage, previous insurance history for claims and your driving record for convictions.

    Flint Private Clients has access to an extensive range of policies with different options for cover, which will also affect the price of your insurance. We work with you to secure the right cover at the best rate.

    I am young and a relatively inexperienced driver, can I get cover?

    Yes, ultimately, your insurance premium will reflect any lack of driving experience. Still, a specialist broker such as Flint has access to insurers who do not trade online and may offer a better deal or provide insurance that others decline.

    Depending on your circumstances, a family fleet policy is another option; speak to us for more details.

    I have driving convictions and some claims against me. Can I still obtain high quality cover?

    Yes, we have access to many specialist insurers who will consider vehicle insurance on these terms.

    How can I reduce my insurance costs?

    There are several options that we can discuss with you, such as increased ‘claims excess’ and car security and tracking systems which will reduce your premiums.

    Is 'agreed value' cover only available on collector cars?

    No, many high value insurers will give you agreed value cover on a number of types and classifications of vehicle. The Flint Private Client team can advise whether this is the best option for you.

    Can I include breakdown, legal expenses and Gap cover?

    Yes, this is one of the significant benefits of high value car cover; especially because your insurer is ideally looking to be a ‘one-stop shop’, they will respond to your needs regarding these types of extra cover. As well as an added convenience, this full-service approach can often reduce the overall cost of your premium.

    I might take my car on a track day, will I be insured?

    High value insurers tend to understand that owners of high-performance vehicles like to let them off their leash now and then! As a result, several of our insurers will accommodate time for track days. Speak to your Flint Private Client account handler, who will make sure you get the right cover.

    How do I buy high value car insurance?

    To select an insurance policy and quote that’s tailored to your needs, a member of our Private Client team will need to speak with you to answer a range of important questions about you, your car (or collection). We will assess your unique insurance needs and identify the essential parts (and values) of the cover you require in your high value policy.

    To discuss buying a car insurance policy, you can contact us via telephone on 0800 840 3156 (9:00 am to 6:30 pm Monday to Thursday, and 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on Friday). Alternatively, fill out the form on this webpage, and we will be pleased to call you back at a convenient time for you.

    Do you offer price matching for cheaper quotes?

    If you already have a quote from another premium car insurance provider, please share this with us and ask us for a competing quote. As an insurance broker, we can negotiate rates on your behalf from a wide panel of UK insurers, often at preferable rates. We will endeavour to find you the same policy cover for a lower price.

    I have made a number of insurance claims - can I still obtain high quality cover?

    We have access to a wide range of insurers, including some who do not deal directly with the public but only via an insurance broker. This includes insurers who specialise in more challenging to place risks, such as those with a high claims frequency. So please speak with us; we can often allay your fears!

    How long are the insurance quotes valid for?

    The majority of insurance quotes from Flint are valid for 30 days. However, the validity period can vary across both insurers and the quotes provided. We will confirm the validity period when we provide you with a quote. If you do not take up the quote within the validity period, a reassessment of your insurance needs will need to be carried out and a new quote established. This may differ from the original, depending on changes within the insurance market.

    When will the cover start?

    Once the Private Client team has spoken with you and researched the best insurance quotes for your vehicle(s), we will move quickly to confirm the insurance coverage options. When we have mutually agreed on the best policy for you, we will action the policy with the insurance firm and confirm the cover with you. Once we provide you with the confirmation, you will have immediate insurance cover.

    Who do I call if I need to make a claim?
