Paperwork easy to understand and always on time. Having never had to claim in all the years I have been insured with you, I cannot comment on your efficiency in that department.
Value for money if I had ever had to use the breakdown service, however it's good to have peace of mind.

Classic Car Insurance JENSEN INTERCEPTOR

Service:-

Everyone I spoke to was very helpful but my policy schedule has written in caps at the top INCOMPLETE POLICY WORDING - DO NOT SEND TO CUSTOMER. I called to let FJ know and I was sent pdf with the schedule on but with exactly the same warning in. But for that, I would have given an excellent review, as they are always helpful and clear. Sorry about that.
