No problems yet, but then I've never needed to make a claim. Got to admit I was a bit shocked by the quote given for my second classic car which does more mileage each year than the one insured with you and a bit confused by the European cover for the second car. It appeared as if this would be a bolt on extra, not part of the whole package.
I'd be more than happy to insure both vehicles with Footman James if the premium was a bit more realistic and the package reflected a nod toward loyalty.

Reliable and thorough service- although seems to be rather too much paper work every year just to renew cover.
