What is a modified car?
The definition of a car modification is any change that’s been made to a vehicle so it differs from the manufacturer’s original factory specification.
Modifications aren’t all bad, though. In some cases, they could lower your premiums. This is often the case when you fit a dashcam, a towbar, or parking sensors. Let us know how you’ve altered your car (or even if you’re simply planning on altering it) and we’ll use our comparison system to find out how this will affect your premiums if at all.
How to insure a modified car
Insuring a modified car isn’t actually as difficult as you might think. While more general car insurance companies don’t always understand the true value of some modifications, as specialists, we enjoy finding unusually modified cars in need of insurance.
Simply give us a call. And if our lines aren’t currently open, fill in our online quote form and we’ll get back to you with a great deal.
Agreed value policies available
If you’ve modified your car, chances are you’ve spent money and time on making it the vehicle you want. We offer agreed value policies to cover the car and its modifications. This ensures that even if you have to rebuild the car from scratch, you don’t get paid for less than the true value of the vehicle.
Is modified car insurance cheaper?
Yes, when compared to non-modified cars that offer like-for-like performance, custom car cover can be cheaper. There are a number of discounts available to modified car owners, including for limited mileage cover, modifications you’ve done yourself, and for owners club members. Compared to similar non-modified performance vehicles, most custom cars are also treated as classics so premiums reflect this.

Keep your car garaged if you can and install the best Thatcham-approved alarm system you can afford. This way, you can pay less.
Cover for young drivers
Insurance is already expensive for young drivers, but pair this with a modified car and you’ll be paying through the roof. Thankfully, we view you a little differently. We understand that passion for cars begins early, which is why we insure people that other insurance brokers deem “uninsurable”.
Cover for adapted vehicles and WAVs
And if you’re a disabled driver? We also cover you if you have a disability and need to modify your car so it’s more usable. Disabled adaptions can be covered on a new for old policy – ask us about new for old cover on disability adaptions. We also offer cover for wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs).
Do modifications really invalidate car insurance policies?
Yes, modifications can void your insurance policy. Even if you don’t think a modification matters, it’s best to let us know when you’ve made a change to your vehicle. This way, we can alter your policy in line with your needs and make sure anything disclosed is covered.
