Classic Bike Insurance BSA A7SS


Until recent renewal have had great service and insurance from FJ. After selling one of my classic bikes (of 2) received renewal which was more expensive than last year and they could not give me an explanation as to why this was. I renewed but not happy as nothing had changed in my risk.

Classic Bike Insurance HONDA XL


Super helpful. Unlike Carol Nash!

Classic Bike Insurance BMW R75/5


Good value classic motorcycle insurance quickly and easily renewed



Easy no messing service at a competitive price. I've been with FJ for many years now and see no reason why that should not continue.

Classic Bike Insurance LAMBRETTA LI


Very helpful

Classic Bike Insurance HONDA PAN- EUROPEAN


good service & price



I was hoping that the insurance for this vehicle,would be cheaper than it turned out. Value £700.00! No riding on public highway. Very occasional rally attendance. £87! I am only insuring to comply with DVLC! I think I would have been better off to register SORN!

Classic Bike Insurance BRIDGESTONE TMX100


It works great for me because I have three motorbikes on the same policy which saves money. There is an agreed value on all three which was accepted without quibble.
Everything is in order and they are easy to deal with by phone or email.
