Spoke to my insurance broker this morning who says that it is becoming more prevalent for insurers to state that they won't insure a vehicle unless it is brought into UK via a dealer. Anyway, he also said try Safeguard and we phoned them this morning. They said that they could insure on the VIN number when we reach UK.
Also, Aviva will not insure a motorhome without a Thatcham Cat.1 alarm & immobiliser and a Thatcham Cat.5 tracker if the vehicle is worth over £75,000. (If under £75,000 it must have the alarm & immobiliser).
But, on speaking with Safeguard they say that a vehicle under £100,000 must have a Cat.1 Alarm & immobiliser OR a tracker fitted. (Under £45,000 it must have the alarm & immobiliser).
We have 30 days to register the vehicle having insured with the VIN number, and we have 14 days in which to get the alarm, etc fitted. (This is with Allianz insurance via Safeguard).
So, all is not lost and we can still go to Germany later in the year for our next motorhome where the service, I am afraid, is so much better than in the UK!
