Agreed Valuation

To guarantee that your specialist vehicle is properly insured it is important to get it valued. This will not only ensure that you are completely covered should the worst happen, it could also save you some money in the process.

Obtaining a valuation can be time consuming so we have tried to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible but, if you have any questions, give us a call on 01455 639 000 and we’ll be happy to help.

Here are some simple steps to guide you through the process:

Vehicles under £100,000

If you believe your vehicle has a value of £100,000 or under, all we require is for you to fill in this form and submit it back to us. To agree the value we require a £20 administration fee, this is payable either by cheque or, if you would prefer to pay by card give us a call on 01455 639 000. If you think that the value of your vehicle is just slightly over £100,000 please call us first to discuss.
We will need to see a minimum of six different colour images of the vehicle with the number plate clearly visible in at least one. If you would rather fill out a physical form then you can print out a hard copy and either post the photos to us or email them.

Vehicles over £100,000

If you feel that your vehicle has a value which is significantly in excess of £100,000, you will need to have the ‘Vehicle Condition’, ‘Vehicle Value’ and ‘Authorisation’ sections of this form filled in by a relevant Car Club Official, Automotive Valuer or Vehicle Assessor. If it is more convenient, we will also accept a separate valuation from relevant Car Club Official, Automotive Valuer or Vehicle Assessor as long as it is submitted on their official letterhead.
We will need to see a minimum of six different colour images of the vehicle with the number plate clearly visible in at least one. Images can be posted to us or sent by email.

Things to remember

Please be realistic with your valuation. The figure that we agree will be the current market value of the vehicle and unfortunately cannot take into account the cost of restoration or any sentimental value. If you have recently purchased the vehicle, the purchase price will be the agreed value. Though it is human nature to over-value our possessions, we hope that you will provide a fair assessment of the value which will then be compared to current market publications to ensure accuracy and fairness.

We reserve the right to decline any value, ask for further information or request a second opinion on vehicle valuations which we do not feel to be correct.

If you choose not to supply any valuation details or vehicle images we will insure your vehicle at market value. In this instance, if you do subsequently need to make a claim, the value is then at the discretion of the insurance company’s engineers.

To be valued in-house or independently?

We still require this form to be completed even if the valuation is from an independent. The independent valuation can be supplied by using the photo upload section.

Personal and Vehicle Details

Vehicle Condition

In order to simplify the process of describing the condition of your vehicle, we have split the valuation into five rating choices. This approach helps us to correctly assess the condition of your vehicle. The categories are:

CConcoursPerfectly restored or immaculately preserved in its original condition with no further work necessary. Vehicles with a historic significance could be appropriate for this category.
1A1 ConditionGenuinely excellent, in a totally original or restored condition and with a real potential, pending slight improvements, to reach the level of ‘Concours’.
2Good ConditionRegular quality but without the potential to be ‘Concours’ standard. Free from any significant faults though lacking history and/or originality.
3Standard QualityStandard Quality Reliable and holding a current MOT Certificate but would benefit from some attention.
4DriveableUsable but in need of major work.
