Putting a note in among the paperwork to the effect that the car's mileage was required otherwise the insurance would be invalid was not easy to find in the large bundle, especially as I had already supplied it over the phone when arranging the insurance (I had to go to the garage to check it) and should not have been asked again particularly on an 08.. telephone line. Everyone that I spoke with was fine and although the computer missing my classic car club membership on the initial quote this was quickly picked up and dealt with on the phone.
