Frequently Asked Questions about modified 4×4

1) I go overlanding throughout the year so my mileage is high. Do you cover this?

Yes we do. We support the 4×4 owners who like to go greenlaning, to pay and play sites and overlanding. We can offer up to 12,000 miles. Just as long as you meet the other requirements. So your vehicle can’t a daily driver.

2) My 4×4 is my everyday car, can you insure me?

We can’t. Insurance calculations deem this as a high risk. This specialist scheme is for the enthusiast who has a 4×4 for weekend adventures.

3) Can you cover my 4×4 modifications?

Yes we can. We know a fair bit about modified 4x4s. We even have a 110 Land Rover we use. So don’t fear – tell us the full list if you want the right cover. After all if you didn’t declare the winch and it got stolen, we may not be able to pay out.

4) Do you cover camping equipment?

We can do. This isn’t part of the scheme as standard but it is an optional extra. For just £30 we can cover up to £3,500 worth of camping equipment. Just make sure you fix the equipment to the vehicle where you can. Or you can store items inside the 4×4.

Examples of what we cover: camping chairs, tables, fridge freezers, cookers and more.

5) I’m a member of a 4×4 response team, is this an issue?

Not at all. We understand how important you are to the community. We don’t want to penalise you for it. Just let us know what type of response member you are and any extra training you’ve had. We can even offer up to 15% discount for you.

6) I’m 21 years old, can you cover me?

Through the demand of so many requests, we have extended the age limit to include 21 years old and over.

However, there are limitations and provisions if you are in this age bracket:

  • You must have owned your 4×4 for at least one year
  • You must own a second vehicle
  • You must be a club member
  • You must have experience with 4×4 vehicles

Call us for a modified 4×4 insurance quote on 0121 248 9229.

7) I’m 18 years old. You cannot cover me. Why is this?

Insurance is based on risk factors and statistics. Younger drivers historically have a higher rate of accidents. Our insurance providers are less keen to help- so that they can keep the costs low for everyone else.
