Laid Up Insurance

At Footman James we understand that every classic vehicle owner is not always out and about in their vehicle and may decide to declare their vehicle as SORN.

Some may choose to tinker with their pride and joy in a restoration project; others may store their asset away in the garage and some of us like our classic to take the limelight at an exhibition or competition; but do we all have the right insurance?

Whether you restore, store or transport your classic vehicle, Footman James can provide peace of mind with our Restoration, Storage & Transit insurance policy for laid up vehicles. This protects your vehicle while it’s off the road, if kept in a locked garage, against: accidental or malicious damage (including vandalism), fire, lightning and explosions, theft or attempted theft.

Your vehicle is also covered while it is temporarily out of the garage - during transit by road or sea to and from competitions, exhibitions, race preparation facilities, repair/body shops and other similar facilities within the UK.
