I thought Comfort were brokers for Aviva
I would put the onus back on the dealer, tell them to sort it or forget it.
Most "proper" dealers use the AFRL system where it is all done on line and they issue you with a registration number and even supply the tax disc for you. Even if they are not using AFRL, I am certain they can go to their local LVLO and get a block of registration numbers.

The facts about dealers not being able to register without a cert of insurance were quite correct 12 months ago when I bought mine.

When mine was new 1st Feb 2011 I insured with Aviva via Insurance Choice and there was no problem insuring with a pre quoted registration number by the DVLA to my dealer. It was all done with a faxed covernote ( they didn't accept eletronically transmitted ones via email attachments then).

Also Aviva were insuring Motorhomes at the begining of this month (Feb 2012) because mine was with them until I got a quote of almost half of theirs!

van insurance

Hi again spoke to the dealer, under new rules they cant get the reg number without the insurance certificate. Just rang C&C Club no problems, quoted using chassis number valid for seven days just ring them with the reg number within that time.

This may become complicated given that the OP wants to collect the MH in 10 days or so time.

Then Comfort and MHF won't be insuring any more new motorhomes! I guess the penny will drop with them at some point.

I think that there may be a bit of communication breakdown between you and the brokers. They are correct that they cannot issue a Certificate of Insurance on a chassis number ( it is an annual document).
However, they can issue a cover note which is a time limited document, normally 30 days, to enable you to tax it, and then issue the annual document.

I have checked and can confirm that Aviva still issue cover notes to brokers. Have another chat with them, (the brokers) this is silly.


Edit: Changs reference to insurers to read brokers.

insurance with chassis number

After hours spent on computer and phone still no further forward. The lowest quotes ( including MHF) all use Aviva who will not insure on a chassis number. It is over £100 more to use one of the others and C & CC is out because it does not have a tracker. Only the bigger dealers have a choice of numbers - apparently. Have thrown it back to the dealer (Camper NE) but am feeling a bit fraught at the moment!!

I know - that is what is causing the problem as they and MHF as well as Frank Pickles who I have never heard of gave the best price on like for like quotes

van numer plate!

Well Camper NE have just rung me. They have gone through their partners Camper UK and given me a number. Now decision time. Should we go for MHF, Comfort or the unfamiliar Frank Pickles? Has anyone out there any advice or opinions or even a totally different company? Grateful for any advice.
Safeguard always in past but at £150 seems silly to stay with them unless there is a very good reason.
