Dan, something's off somewhere, I've swapped my NCD between business/private/car(disco)/pickup(Hilux)/van numerous times over the last 10 years & never had a problem. I even transferred my (private) NCD onto my Ltd company van. Try Quoteline, they specialise in commercial stuff & you talk to a real person in your native tongue (well Mancunian)

I was told that you can transfer NCD from a domestic policy to a commercial, but insurers won't allow it the other way. Makes no sense to me, but that's par for the course.

In post #5 the op states he had a claim & can't use his protected Ncd. Protected Ncd only counts for the origional insurance company with the same vehicle any other company will treat you as having no Ncd hence the quotes.
Your going to pay hefty insurance untill you rebuild your Ncd unless you stick with the origional insurer who offered the protected Ncd
Basically you've had a claim so you pay the full premium!

I've never owned a commercial vehicle before so my 15 yrs+ of NCB has been earned in cars. Does anyone have any experience in this area? Can one get car NCB taken into account? Even if I put 15 years NCB in I'm still getting quotes almost twice what I pay for the Exeo.
If you do get the insurance sorted and end up with a navara, make sure the timing chain mod is done, loads of horror stories on the web for the D40 engine failing ( even at low miles )

Fwiw, I don't rate pickups ( well Hiluxs anyway) as tow vehicles. Unless you've got plenty of weight on the bed, they are flighty on the back end. You're going to be pulling a hefty lump with that RB on the back. Have you tried it on the vehicle?


.....sh1t happens.......

Gotta agree with pd pickups are not good tow vehicles we have a hilux hl3 3.0 & an old 270cdi merc ml & the merc is far better at towing the hilux suspension is just too hard &shakes you to bits with a heavy trailer on & traction is terrible unless you select 4wd .ok up to about 1.5t but over that a proper 4x4 is far better

Well, the bad news is that I'm kind of commited now. The good news is that I got a reasonably sensible offer from the Police mutual cos my father in law to be is ex "job".

It seems like as far as ribnet is concerned, all shades of opinion are here. On a seperate thread I've had advice that the 3lt hilux is the best thing since narrow bread. I'll def be keeping an eye on the timing chain : I've found a pretty good looking Navara owners forum with all the evils to look out for.

Just need the V5 to come back after the private reg transfer so I can HPI it and we're good to go.

Anyone want to buy a nice Seat Exeo?

It's not that hilux are bad cars just pickups in general don't make good tow vehicles
They achieve there tow rating fully loaded & are a Totaly different animal with 1000kg over the rear axle hang a heavy trailer on an empty one & there way outclassed by a proper 4x4 with full time 4wd & the weight distribution better & independent rear suspension
