I have been with Footman James for 15 years for classic car insurance and found them to be very good. I was disappointed with their quote for other car insurance and so now use two different insurance companies.

Was not able to download my documents using the email that you sent me. I had to go onto your website and go from there. I would rather receive my documents through the post.
Other wise all was okay.
Thankyou.

Classic Car Insurance MORRIS MINOR TRAVELLER

Very polite service, I could do with slightly slower speech to interpret more easily what is being said, probably my age and I didn't say anything at the time as I got the gist. Lovely manner and no criticism of the young lady. I will and have recommended the company and will buy from you again.

Classic Car Insurance TRIUMPH TR6 ROADSTER

Service:+

Renewal documentation contained two errors, quickly resolved by email/telecom. Online renewal was not possible perhaps as a consequence of the above. Again quickly resolved by phone call.

Classic Car Insurance TRIUMPH SPITFIRE

Service:++

Professional, knowledgeable, staff who answer calls quickly. Insurance set up same day with documents available online within minutes. Good value for money in my view and ability to insure my teenage son was a key selling point for me. I'm a new customer but experience so far has been great. I would certainly recommend to friends looking for classic car insurance.
