It's not just based on Crime rates though. It's also based on claims.

So if you have a rich neighbour with a supercar and they stuff it... that claim will go against everyone in that post code.

Or, if you have a load of neighbours who shouldn't have a licence, and they are always bumping and claiming, that will go against you.

Added to Crime stats... it's not a fair statistic to use in all honesty. Insurance should be based on your personal record only... not the record of others.

Greenlight came up trumps for me.

Fully clued up on cars and modifications and seem like genuine car people not just doing it for a job.

My van was fully covered including all mods much cheaper than any other company out there and I'm confident in the service that they offer.

My policy was £300 with everything covered

Highly recommended

I wonder if that site is up to date? I live in TS10 and that's rated as F but my insurance for the Ellie is over a hundred pounds less than Karl's which is an E. Doesn't make a lot of sense....

Could be the modifications, my age, difference in NCB, or any number of other things.

Tried greenlight recently and was unimpressed im afraid. The person i spoke to (male but didnt get his name) sounded pretty uninterested in giving a quote and soon stopped the convo when i told him that my wife had a fault accident last year, wouldnt do a quote after that so will have to find another company. Quotes ive been getting are super high, cheepest being flux at £900, 11 years no claims, no accidents or points for me but wife has accident and 3 points.

Oh dear @Dimbers that quote is very high! I know the solution... don't put your wife on the Elgrand insurance! :p

Haha I did think of that, but i dont fancy having to take her shopping, hairdressers, nails etc etc. I will keep pushing with the quotes, i would be happy with around £700 which i think is still high but not ridiculous. A few more companies to try yet.

That's because they won't quote with less than 3 years NCB, so adding a named driver with less than that, they won't insure.

If you read the "terms" on the website regarding this, it will prevent you wasting your time.

A lot of the "best" insurers in terms of price, have stipulations around the type of people they will quote to insure. They are not set up to insure people outside of those parameters, and as such, will not be competitive. They excel at providing insurance for their target audience.

I am sure you would find they would give you a very good quote just for yourself, but as their website states, they won't insure your wife as a named driver due to the accident/lack of NCB.

I also live in Hartlepool and am a newbie without a Elgrand yet so got myself a quote for a 2005 3.5l using a reg number from an ad on ebay
Came back at £302 fully comp, 5 years NCB and with my wife as a named driver which knocked £100 off
I was quite happy as I haven't really shopped around for any other quotes

I insured with greenlight when my renewal came up, just under £400 per year with all options. Costing me £36 per month on a monthly plan. Much better than the £600+ that every other insurer was looking for, even the broker I had been with for about 10 years! Direct line were previously charging me over£60 per month so well chuffed!

For anyone looking to renew their insurance or you are looking at insurance for your pending arrival, check out GreenLight Insurance. I was recommended to them by @Madfish a few months ago when he renewed as they gave him an exceptional quote.

I have now just renewed my insurance with these guys and they knocked a whopping £300 off my renewal quote from Sky Insurance, who have been the cheapest for me for years by at least £200.

The guy to speak to is Dan Kirrage, he's super helpful and will do his best to give you a good quote.

All you need to do in order to get the 15% off is to tell them that you are a member of ElgrandOC. They will then confirm your membership with the club and deduct the discount from your premium.

Just as a side note, we all know that insurance companies seem to be pot luck, what works for one does not work for everyone, but I am quite confident these guys will be competitive.

Think you might find that it depends on the number of drivers you want to insure. I wanted four, myself, wife and two sons-in-law. They said they couldn't offer me a policy.

Update
I'm just sorting my insurance out and went back onto carinsurance.asda.com ... I added my wife as an additional driver, just to see what it would do to the premium and it went down £70 to £257.00 (£30 + £25ish a month) with Geoffrey Insurance.

That's with 0 NCD as all my NCD is on another car...
