Think would be good idea for everyone who Sorns to check with their insurers, AIB assured me we were still fully comprehensively covered whilst in storage.Checked with scenic insurance...if sorned then cover changes from fully comp to 3rd part fire and theft....any damage incurred whilst on our drive would not be covered so left as is.....also a part of me that agrees with davidg58.....for the relatively small amount we will get back I think the country needs it more right now.
Thank you Richard and Ann, I was concerned about this. The reason of my concern is, many years back my parents come to love next door, dad would leave the car in the garage without moving for quite a number of weeks,, then would just go out for a drive around. I asked him why, his reply was the tyres despite being inflated to correct pressure had flat spots where the tyre was on the ground, and he drives around on occasions to correct this. So I have been bearing the in mind. So thank you again for re-assurance also to prove her indoors to be correct againYour tyres will be fine, ours is SORNed for 5 months a year and never moves ?
Well what can I say, I blame spell checker , but yes they did love being next door, out and away from London, out in the countryside. But I meant was came to live next door. But we need to fun moments at this time. And I am SORN to loveI know we sent supposed to pick at people's spelling... but sorry could not miss this one..... " YOUR PARENTS CAME TO LOVE NEXT DOOR. ????
Yes, I spoke to my insurance company and they told me DVLA has extended any MOT due for renewal after 30 March for 6 months. This means I can keep my campervan on the road.There is a 6 month amnesty for a MOT test according to the Dealer who phoned me yesterday to say they were closing.
I looked into similar when i left my car for long periods but 3rd party fire and theft was never much cheaper ( if at all) than fully comp.. Insurance company explanation was the only ones seeking 3rd P. F. & T was those with bad ratings and their fully comp would be ridiculously high. But for average Joe public then no...Sorn yesterday as tax due next week. Luckily have fair sized driveway so can move it around, turn it around d etc just to keep things moving a bit. May consider only ins Third party fire and theft until further notice when it's due on 17th.
We SORN'd yesterday. Going to a few months at least I think.I don't know what to do with my campervan. I had a service and MOT booked for today but the garage has cancelled. It will come up for tax renewal shortly which presumably I won't be able to do because no MOT. I would like to keep it going as the battery will go flat presumably and I've got no way of charging it up. Will speak with insurance company, methinks.
