A very good and economical comprehensive policy for my needs. FJ listened to my requirements and made every reasonable effort to meet them. A couple of points lacked clarity or were not picked up properly on initial submission, so it pays as always to read the proposal properly! Would definitely recommend for any Classic Trader wanting a fair and reputable policy.
