After much debating and looking at the quotes everyone have provided the club has decided to take on Sky Insurance (UIG) as the official club insurer. As the official club insurer they are devoted to offering our members the cheapest quotes possible and also to provide the best quality service too. They also offer benefits such as agreed values, like for like modifications, and low mileage discounts. Make sure you tell them you belong to the mkiv Supra Owners Club when you get a quote!

Please note you will need to print off your membership confirmation document and send it Sky when requested. Your membership confirmation document can be found here (http://www.mkivsupra.net/vbb/membership.php). If you cannot access this page then your club membership is not up-to-date.

For more details or to get a quote please see http://www.skyinsurance.co.uk/

Mines not up for renewel yet but who are these guys? I've not heard of them or UIG before?
What sort of policy do they do, is it underwritten by Lloyds and has anyone had any experience of how good/bad they are when it comes to a claim?

I'm not being negative, just wondered about the above.

Lloyds is not an underwriter, it provides services/insurance market for underwriters/brokers similar to how the LSE works for the stock market. Chap who I spoke to was friendly and polite and not pushy at all.

I stand corrected on the Lloyds bit. Are they an agent/broker any history regards paying out etc?

I got quoted 460 fully comp with protected no claims on my twin turbo uk spec, and am only 23 with 5years no claims, how goods that?! that is with the online quote thing on admiral.com. as insurance is up for renewal in next few days will try sky insurance but think the chances the admiral quote will be beaten are slim. Hope they can beat it though :D

Im with tesco and my quote for renewal was 1400 with declared mods, after reading this i thought id give sky a call, they quoted me 1550!?!? But.. when he quoted me he said that they will insure the car for what its worth realistically but tescos will only insure me book value!

I checked with tesco and asked them this and they guy told me if i had an accident and wrote my sup off i would get 8k!! I then said even though ive declared my modifications and ive had to pay a higher premium because of this, are you sure its only 8k he replyed "yes sir we only cover you for the book value!"

Well after this sky will be getting my buisness for when i have to renew, and i would check with your insurers how much they pay out as i would be extremely p****d if tesco only paid me 8k

Thankyou guys for sorting this out

I'm going to give them a ring tomorrow, I'm currently paying 2900 for my insurance (22, but cover was taken out at 21 with 1yrs NCB), on a TT GZ auto, so anything less than that is a bonus. I'll let you know how I get on. :)

Fantastic, about 250 pounds less. Although i did let them know about all the mods. i will be using them on the 25 of this months. Thanks for sorting this out. At this price i might be able to keep my supra!!

I thought Sky didn't insure anyone under 25??

15-03-05, 16:40
I've just had to pay an additional premium to Adrian Flux as I was on a limited milage policy, so basically Sky insurance would have been 521 cheaper!!!!!!
And Adrian flux DON'T do like for like cover! :swear:
The Adrian Flux rep started getting difficult with me when I said I made a mistake of taking a policy with them! :taped:

So me is one happy chappy with a YOY saving of 41% ...Thanks to Mawby and everyone who made this happen!!

Please dont think I'm in anyway implying Sky would be the same but my mate had a bit of a let down when his broker told him the same thing.

This was a few years back now but he had an Escort cabby and spent thousands on it. Paint job, leather, alloys, turbo'd, that expensive material roof(the name escapes me), etc etc. He declared them to his Insurance broker and paid an additional 500 to cover the mods. His car was then stolen and when found totally stripped of all said mods. When trying to claim he was well and truly shafted! To cut a very lond story short he was conned by the broker and the underwriter refused to cover his mods. In short, he got book price back (900) for a car that owed him 1000's. He tried all the usual routes to complain, ombudsman etc but to no avail.

Again, I'm not saying Sky would be the same but worth a thought. I guess the only way for sure you'll know if the mods a realistically insured is if you were unlucky enough to have you motor robbed! Let's hope nobody gets to find out.

21-03-05, 17:53
Sky offered me an agreed value policy for a small extra fee. I was told this was to be supported by photo and documentary evidence. As my car is an every-day car and not a super-pretty one I turned down the option. It may be worth considering it if you have a tasty looking car.

It does amaze me that premiums differ so much. Remember that Privilege, Direct Line and Tesco are all the same insurance company, part of Royal Bank of Scotland. I also tried Tesco and was told they wouldn't touch a J-Spec, modded or not!

declaring mods it is a lot different to an assured value. If they said it was an assured value and he had that in writing then how could he have lost out? Thats a real shame. Insurance is a funny thing.

I just rang Sky, they seemed extremely keen to help until I said it had Nitrous fitted, they also said that they only cater for cars with a value of upto 15000. Adrain Flux are the only people I can get insured with. They are still very reasonable for their price.
Oh well, we'll have to see what happens at the next renewal date.

Yup, somewhere miles back in one of these threads I mentioned the same thing about the 15k. Interesting that Adrian Flux will cover you and not me, it does seem to be totally random!!

Jason
23-03-05, 07:21
I have a specific nitrous policy which last year would have paid the value of the car plus the value of any mods damaged to which we have receipts, this year i have altered slightly to fixed mileage and am going for guaranteed value to be sure. The policy is underwrited by Equity Red Star (a lloyds co).

Just wanted to say thanks to Mawby, Jae at Sky and whoever else was involved in organizing the club insurance scheme.

I'm 28, live in London(eek!), full no claims, SP30 from Oct '02

I'm defecting from Bell Direct whos best quote for my renewal this year was 1212.90 and that was fully comp, a limited milage policy (4,000), Social & Domestic only, NO MODIFICATIONS, 350 excess.

Jae came up with 1041 Fully comp Social & Domestic and Commuting! Unlimited milage, declared "future" modifications of BPU and aftermarket alloys, 450 excess.

Good enough that i saved almost 200 but the fact i can use the car for work if i want is cool, and Bell wanted even more dosh for Modifications so who knows how much more i've saved!

Once again cheers guy's, happy motoring!!!

Just renewed with UIG. Spoke to a great bloke called Scott who managed to "knock off" a little more money.
All mods declared (see sig), fixed valuation 15000, fully comp 620 (450 excess)
That was 150 cheaper than my present company (without fixed valuation). Same as Adrian Flux, but I preferred to deal with the club scheme.

That's roughly what I pay Flux for the 'modified' group 20 supercar (their description FFS!)

I was paying half that for the Calibra turbo, with FMIC, water injection etc all declared. They're taking the pish I think, for what is essentially a stock UK soop. :complain:

Just a thankyou to the organisers from another satisfied customer...
Option of agreed value was so enticing for me, I switched mid term from my previous insurer. ( after finding out that they'd only pay book value and not replace my 'insured' extras )
Result was ( only ) approx 100 less - but piece-of-mind is worth a whole lot more.....

:thanks:

Sky quoted me 650.00 FComp with mods declared and an excess of 400!
I thought that was good, as it was cheaper than my previous insurer by 200 on the premium and 200 on the excess. However, :stickpoke A-Plan quoted me 564.00 FComp with same mods with an excess of only 250. Go figure!

Thanks anyway guys, but I'm going with A-Plan this year!

Bell Direct wanted 669 for 1993 Supra GZ, all mods, Full NCB, Low mileage, garaged and alarmed and not like for like cover.

Jay quoted 541 covering mods like for like. He also dropped my Celica GT-Four Insurance from 873 (Adrian Flux) to 645.

Very happy indeed.

Ive now gone with Sky, who gave me basically the same quote as Flux but decided I may aswell go with the club scheme. The only "niggle" I have at the moment is that although I have declared all mods and have a fixed valuation of 15000 none of these are shown on my policy, so effectively if I hac a claim the insurance company could deny all knowledge. Ive contacted Jae with regard to this and am awaiting a reply.

I'm 25 with 6 years no claims living in Manchester and i got quoted 1081 fully comp which i think is amazing! My mates are well gutted! :D

They also know she's 400 BHP and i've also submitted extra photos of the car to make sure (should anything nasty happen to the car) they pay what its worth and not the "book" price!

Branners - you must have some postcode! I have more or less the same setup and they quoted me almost double!

Just to add - agreed value is a 35 option, and my quote was without any breakdown cover. 450 excess too :(

Branners
01-06-05, 20:05
perhaps its the position in the club that helped...I seriously dont know why its so cheap. To add to my problems I called up Liverpool Victoria (current insurer) and they will continue with my current insurance which covers any mods I have on the car (they wont entertain any new ones but cover whats on there) and thats only 538, so now I have to make a choice.

I even double checked with Sky to make sure they understood the mods I had. What BHP increase did you quote them John?

Mines with 300 excess...

My point when this discount scheme was first announced was that I asked if anyone had any experience of how good they are at paying out.
I wouldn't be happy with a policy without the mods in writing as it's a get out for them if a claim is made.
Mine is with Bell at the moment and I'll happily pay less with Sky but only for a proper policy otherwise cheap quotes aren't worth having if it's aggro at payout time.
I think the club should ask for corrected paperwork for those it concerns rather than wait for a claim to go in and find people may have problems.

I've gone with Sky .. with all the trimmings fully comp 976. 7yrs NCB, 29yrs, Clean License & No Claims.

When I asked them about my up and coming Single Conversion they charged me an extra 276. I asked Jay - what does he base that on. And he said it's because I'm changing the spec of the engine with a more powerful turbo.

I told him the type of turbo .. T61. And asked him - if he'd taken the size of turbo into account. Apparently they don't. So, in other words I could put on T67 etc etc and still get charged the same.

I don't get it! Has anyone else insured their single car with Sky ?

30-06-05, 13:05
I've copied this off another thread that I replied to.....

I've found it's common for insurers to make 'mistakes'. What normally happens is they downgrade your car or miss mods so they give you a cheap or reasonable quote - After you've taken out the insurance and you realise, when you ring them up to moan...they whack on extra premium!!!!. I've had it done a few times to me.
The best thing to do is when you get your quote - tell them to send it in writing with all the details - engine, date of manufacture and mods.

As you can understand I can not give out details of how our scheme is underwritten, for obvious reasons. I can say that I am given alot of flexibility by insurers when calculating premiums. I will, on occasion, use this flexibility to get a premium lower, or agree to an additional or larger modification without an extra cost. This is not something I do so I can make "mistakes" on peoples' policies, as I have always said I am trying to design a more flexible insurance policy that is taylor made for modified car drivers.
I can assure everyone that if you disclose all modifications correctly I will make sure your car is insured correctly.

If anyone wants to discuss their own specific policy, please give me a call.

Quick Update:

I tried a quote with Jae this morning, they couldnt match elephant at all, because they have had a few recent payouts on young Supra owners and so have increased the premiums in this area recently, so if your under 25 and want a Supra, its not looking good.

Damn young drivers! :rolleyes: :D

Cmon lets face it in the days I was insuring a car below 25 I was paying 600 on a 1.3 mazda 323 that was nearly 10 years ago before they doubled up the insurance groups.
We are talking about a machine that standard puts 320+ bhp out the back wheels. I can almost guarantee your average 25 year old has never driven a rear wheel drive car before they get in their first supe. So I'm not at all surprised that its just a tadge on the expensive side to insure these cars at ages under 25. I think to be fair its only the vast quantity of cars now in use that has brought policy costs down enough that under 25's are even considered.
Insurance is in effect only gambling. The policy you are given is to all intents and purposes the odds that the insurer is giving you. I'm impressed that an insurance broker has the nouse to actually come have a looksee at his future investments general opinion by looking into their forum.
I've had cheaper quotes for insurance than SKY have done me but not 1 of them would do an agreed valuation which as any aerotop owner thats ever had an off will tell you is worth its weight in gold. When you say you have a front mount intercooler etc the guy on the end of the phone knows what you mean instead of asking you what category that fits into on his computer. I don't ever want to have to claim on my insurance, but if that event ever occurs I want to know that I will get what I think my car is worth back. It becomes especially relevent if someone else hits you. If you get involved in a non fault accident and your insurance firm is cheap and crap you'll end up fighting your corner for months. With an agreed valuation if the fault company plays hardball you claim on your own insurance and they chase it up so you don't end up in a micra for 6 months and pulling all your hair out. Its about time that specialist car markets got specialist car insurers that know what they are doing.

I agree fella, I was 24-5 with a 214SLi 5d Rover, luck smiled on me and I could afford...

...A push-bike for 2 years (no ban, just a personal choice)...

... Then a Supra and a year after an L reg clio for the shopping and winter. My first years insurance (no claims, but no no-claims (For the Supe came in at 690, second at 660. Clio 360).

I thought I had a right deal, still, three months after the theft and all they have offered is 5.5k on a theft claim for a 72kMl '94 GZ I'm starting to see what insurance firms are made of, my girlfriend works for one, and a lot of my letters etc go through her, and her directors...

...I'd have never entertained being able to insure even a knackered 2.8 Capri in my early 20's, my C reg 1.1 polo at 18yrs was 660 quid, and my Rover was still 600 at 24-5...

You get what you pay for, but then again... Only if it's in writing.

Insurance IS gambling, odds sway month by month. They also list cars by accident payout value, their risk. There's some mathematics too it she hasn't discovered yet. Guaranteed a Supra causes more carnage than an astra. I, for a start knew mine was better than me.

By my reckoning, insure any, rear wheel drive, car in the Autumn. Less accidents for the preceeding 3 months see, like a horse on bad form.... less risk of winning (from the bookies eyes)

just my observations and experiences people.

It's simple. If you need to claim and haven't declaired your mods and they find out - they'll refuse to pay. Anything they can do to get out of paying they will.
I'm with Sky, they're just brokers at the end of the day. I think my insurance is with Endsleigh - so don't worry about payment.

Thanks for the number imi - web site working for me now.

Sky's initial quote was around 950, but after speaking to the underwriters, they called me back with 746, 350 xs, protected NCB (6 years), 50K legal, with an option of an extra 35 for a guaranteed value - loads better than A-Plan and quite a bit better than Elephant.

It'll be interesting to see what A-Plan change their quote to when I call them to say I can get it considerably cheaper somewhere else - I hate it when insurance companies don't give you the best price straight away - if they don't manage to beat Sky by quite a margin, then they're not gonna get my business, just because of that fact!

I won't use Adrian Flux after an issue I had with them a quite a while ago on an FTO.

Are we going to change club insurer from year to year? Sky aren't exactly cutting us some great deals hereNo. You have to remember that choosing and setting up the Sky deal took over 8 months to do! I don't have the time to do that every year.

However, I am constantly reviewing the feedback we receive about them and will contact them as needed if they are no longer providing a good deal.

Unfortunely insurance is a conplex thing and we'll never be able to get a scheme which provides everyone with cheap insurance. One of the reasons for choosing Sky was because they actually knew about Supras and were also offering to provide like for like/agreed value cover, which is rare these days.

In the interest of making this scheme work for the club and it's members you might want to pm UIG with all your details and ask why it is so high.

If You think that Sky are high, just try out some of the standard players. even before I mentioned any of the above - 1900 with Norwich Union (they assumed a basic UK Spec 1996 Supra) ... Happy ? I think not.

Jae was really helpful with me, and gave the impression that he knew what I was talking about. :respekt:

For the record, Sky Insurance - Yula (I thnk) said she couldnt insure me as they, or rather their underwriters predominantly deal with customers from the South.

She said once the underwriters heard what city (Liverpool) I was from they kept giving over 3000 - thats with 1 years NCB and Im 28 and no points.

Mad thing is the postcode Im in (L31) with the lowest risk in the entire city along with Formby.

What you have been told by Ula is not exactly true. Sure some areas are more expensive to insure than others, but thats not to say we can not quote people in those areas. The higher rated areas are certainly not restricted to the north, ask anyone who has a Luton or East london postcode.

I am the underwriter for these policies and I don't want predominantly southern areas. I want a balanced book of business with all areas low and high rated.

P.s When you guys call us if you ask for the club scheme department you will speak to myself or Scott, which should insure no one is given incorrect info again.

We just went thru the "usual", and found most quotes were in fact fairly
similar....
~700-800 TT (UK OR Jap !?!)
~550-650 N/A

this is 40-odd-something :rolleyes: /
3 years NCB
Urban
Driveway
2 drivers (1 with SP30 and 10,000 THEFT)

The WORST quote/lack of knowledge was Direct Line, who quoted TT and N/A
exactly the same... even after PHONING and pointing out the not insignificant
Horse Power difference !?!?! (She even went and double checked with a
supervisor ?)

The others all seemed to ask similar questions and DID know N/A v TT.

We have finally gone with Sky because A) they were "equal" lowest quote
(or thereabouts) but also B) MUCH more helpful and seemed to know WHAT to
ask WITHOUT penalizing for the ANSWERS !!!

Just HATE using a company who sounds like they don't even have ANY interest in finding out about the cars they're INSURING !?!?!?!

As long as they come out equal lowest and KEEP it there, I will stay with them

I cant wait to start playing with it. I did nearly 5000 of mods on the last car (MGF), and have pretty much run out of things to do on it without going silly. So thats why I got the Supra, new project and the car ive wanted since i was about 16!

Hmmmmm!! What a predicament!!

Insurance due in 3 weeks, so I phoned Sky. Very helpful, declared all mods + agreed value .. came to about 750.

Job done, I thought. BUT ... I just got a letter from Admiral (my current insurer) to tell me my insurance was due soon. Their new quote was included ..... wait for it ....... 469 full comp :thumbs: :thumbs:

Sooo ... what do I do! Agreed value is great, but I could really do with the 300 saving that Admiral are going to give me right now!! Maybe Sky can improve on my quote if I ask, but I doubt it will be 300 better!!

Is the Admiral one with all mods declared too?

JohnK
05-09-05, 13:51
Are you sure admiral are insuring your car as an import?

Also any mods with Sky should be like for like replacment, they wont be with admiral.

JamesArup
05-09-05, 13:57
Yep .... Definately insured as an import (my postcode is pretty good when it comes to crime rates etc).

Bodykit, Exhaust, Wheels and Filter declared. But like you said, no like-for-like replacement, and no agreed value option!

But I really need that 300!! It will cover the Wideband O2 sensor that I need now!! lol :clap:

Cheers, J :thumbs:

05-09-05, 14:01

05-09-05, 14:41

Admiral is 100 + 250 voluntary (50 excess for windscreen)

Mr. Mawby (Sir !)

Probably me being stupid (AGAIN ! !) but, would it be an idea to have a "NO"
choice in the poll to give a VERY rough idead of what percentage have gone
with Sky (obviously only a percentage of those who actually VOTE)

If there's a reason (and there probably is) please disregard above STUPID

The original poll was purely for me to gauge why people chose Sky. However, in the not so distant future I will be conducting a survey to find out why people have/have not gone with Sky and to get some general feedback as to what people think of the scheme.

After much debating and looking at the quotes everyone have provided the club has decided to take on Sky Insurance (UIG) as the official club insurer. As the official club insurer they are devoted to offering our members the cheapest quotes possible and also to provide the best quality service too. They also offer benefits such as agreed values, like for like modifications, and low mileage discounts. Make sure you tell them you belong to the mkiv Supra Owners Club when you get a quote!

For more details or to get a quote please see http://www.skyinsurance.co.uk/
This is not a proper poll, there is nowhere to enter NO and why not. Sky qouted me over 400 squids and i got fully comp plus all the trimmings for 290 through Budget with Advantage insurance. It pays to hunt if you want that rare animal called a good deal!!.

I spoke to Scott Wilson around 7 times going over everything and he was a real star... probally buy sky insurance a beer if i could....

Just insured with Sky. They were 40 quid more than Elephant (coming to 600), but cover my mods and gave me a guaranteed value of 10K on the car. I'm 27 with 8 years NCD.

Also insured my Rover VVC Coupe with Sky. Elephant wanted 500 with a 350 excess. Sky have done it for 460 with only a 100 excess.

Very helpful too.

Michelle was first rate to deal with, and answered all the points i threw at her.

so one more supra owner in total happiness. thanks for arranging the club scheme with them. was so smooth to arrange. even going to them for my other car which is having the auto transmission ripped out and moved to another car

hi Klump

most seem to chat directly to Jae or Scott in the club scheme department (tell them you are from the MkIV Supra Owners Club) as they are well on the ball about all things Supra.

they were busy when i rang, and i talked to Michelle, and she was really helpful and sorted my insurance so easily, as you can see from my other post.
its so easy getting covered for any mods done, and the agreed value option for extra 35UK is peace of mind.

hope that helps :D

I'm 31 years old, limited the mileage to 3000 miles a year and all mods declared. Requires a Tracker which is a bit of a bummer and effectively adds 109 to your annual policy, but........

681.

TBH, I had a quote from AON, who currently insure my MR2, of 630 so I might have to give Jae a bit of a poke in the ribs ;) But otherwise I think it's a good quote, especially considering the car ! I had declared the mods to AON aswell, but I'm not convinced on the like for like side of things.

Could well be more business for Sky.

Spoke to Graham, very helpful. :respekt:

Other quotes were cheaper, but if I ever get to the unfortunate position that I need to make a claim, I want to be sure that they value the car the same as I do.

It's no good going with the cheapest quote, to have them turn around and say the car's only worth 3000, when you said the value was 15000 on the form :(

I'd always prefer to agree the value before an accident, than have to fight for payment after one, even if it initially costs more money.

Spoke with the guys at SKY on the phone over the past few days.Their quote was only a few pounds lower than the best quote I got elsewhere,but none of the other low quoting insurance companies gave me the option of an agreed value and all confirmed that they would only pay out book value in the case of a total write off.Scott was very friendly and helpful:) I would certainly recommend these guys:Pling: :)
