AA cancelled my car insurance

Postby DonKeegan » Thu Jun 19, 2014 5:51 pm

Hi. Hope someone can give me some help. The AA (underwritten by the RSA) cancelled my car insurance policy when I told them that I was starting up a mobile car valeting business and that I would be using my car to transport myself and my gear from client to client. Very disappointed as you can imagine.

Can anyone recommend a car insurance company that will cover driving for a mobile valeting business? (Can't afford a van right now).

Hmm this is a interesting one indeed, I know a few Pro Valeters & Detailers that are part of an approved and vetted directory and some of them drive about in cars. Now if this is the case are they insured?? if not that Proven, Skilled & Insured is not as it says.

Hope you get it sorted Don.

Have you tried coversure on here? They are worth a call surely! They do vehicle insurance as well as liability.

Update. Only two companies would even give me a quote once they found out that I was a valeter - Allianz and Axa. However I need to do some more work on this because although they are willing to cover me as someone with the occupation 'car valeter', I'm not sure if they will actually cover me for using the car in my business. It's a pain. I'll let you know how I get on.

I'll look into it, however I'm not sure Coversure will give insurance to someone in Ireland. they may only cover UK residents.

Unfortunately 'Shiny' just confirmed that they don't cover Ireland. :(

Ok, Allianz have insured me for driving the car in connection with my valeting business. :) Thats the good news. Bad news is that my premium has doubled.
