I will try Sainsbury's - NFU said I had to be 25 or have family business with them to get insurance.
Just because you dont have any NCB doesnt really mean much - some companies will give you a 50% intro anyway!!!

How old is the landrover?

Have you tried the specialist landrover insurers in the back of the landie mags? Landrover Owner etc?

If the Landrover is old enough (10 years ish depending on company) they will consider a classic policy. Limited mileage, possibly no business use. The point about these policys is that they don't usually have NCB attached to them as they are intended for second cars. None to build up = none to lose?

However, having said that perhaps your high quotes are because you've had an accident and because of your age.

Ah, just read your profile - I guess insurers don't like students either.

Happy hunting

I can understand the insurers no liking students but in Jimbo's cae it's the fact that he's a rear ender that's the issue!

Jimbo have you looked at making the vehicle a company vehicle belonging to Davies coaching and insuring it throught the company!

Horrendously high- I had a 2.8i 4x4 Sierra estate a few years back and it was 3 times as much for TPFT as on a normal 2 litre 2wd. It was a hell of a beast to drive though-I loved it.

15mpg again though

All the non-turbo vehicle have a low ratio box. That is, 2.0 impreze, 2.0 legacy and 2.0 forester. Anything which is not the standard 2.0 4 cylinder has a turbo, and no low ratio box, thus you would need an auto....

The newer ones are much better, as long as you stay away from the STi/Rn/XT vehicles, which still eats parts a bit.

Surely not legal? A 6.3 must be going for at least 1200kg on the trailer. Even if that was what the trailer plate said, i can't beleive a 1.6 Focus is allowed to tow that.
