What is Imported Car Insurance?

What is Imported Car Insurance?

Why would you need Imported Car Insurance? Well, maybe you’ve found your dream car online – you want to buy it from abroad and import it to the UK. Or maybe you’re considering moving to the UK and bringing your car along with you? There are various reasons, but these are the more common ones!

Insurance companies often classify imported cars as non-standard and therefore standard car insurance will not provide the sufficient level of car insurance. Some of the main reasons as to why insurers are careful to insure them is due to the risks involved. These include: the risk of theft and the availability of replacement parts. But have no fear – this doesn’t stop the specialists from being able to offer cover!
