I used a comparison site before logging in to your web site. it is fair to say that there were one or two other suppliers that matched your quote but all of them quoted much higher excesses for windscreen etc. in addition their cost for agreed valuation was very much higher. We've been with you before so we have returned. Best regards.

I was very satisfied with the service which I received in taking out an insurance policy for a small classic car. However, it did seem to take rather a long time and my wife complained that my dinner had gone cold.

A competitive and satisfactory premium for a tailor-made classic car insurance policy.
Friendly and helpful staff who, after two attempts, were eventually able to send the correct documentation. (computer glitch?)

Never had any problems with communication and service. Had a claim years ago they dealt with expeditiously and paid out. No hesitation in recommending FJ to other classic car owners. Cost is very reasonable. Thank you. T

I insure my 2 MGs with this company, a good product at a sensible price. I just hope I never need to call on their services.

Classic Car Insurance

Service:++

Insurance provided by telephone call that covered all aspects of the insurance policy and the necessary verbal statements of liability. Price was competitive comparable with others, but as policy had lapsed the new policy had a reduced mileage allowance, not a problem as car used in summer only so not an issue.

I decided to give Footman James a try when my insurance came up for renewal. Not only did they quote me the best price, the cover was better and the excess lower.
The young lady who sorted out my policy was very friendly, charming and professional (thank you, Paige!), and, as an added bonus, of all the insurance companies I rang for a quote Footman James were the fastest to answer my call, no frustrating time wasted being put on hold or waiting in a queue. Excellent service.
