Does anybody know please of an insurer of privately registered trucks that are just about 25 yrs old and used for recreation and not for business. I drove 3 hours to buy a 1996 Hino Ranger 4x4 tray short wheelbase and spent the day trying to get insurance to no avail. I have a clean record for 50 years. Thanks, Abbuss

Have you tried Shannon's Insurance? I have all my old cars, and had 1 old truck with them.

Thanks Wannabe, I have my 76 Acco with them. Only just scraped in because of HCVC membership. They advised not to use it for touring. I will give them a go tomorrow.

I have all my old vehicles with Shannons - best insurance company in Australia.

Unfortunately they will not insure non-special interest vehicles on full registration, at least up to mid-this year. Worth a call as they are top people with no questions, instant payout and you keep the wreck. Call to see if they have changed. I believe they are owned by QBE.

Have you tried any of those insurance middlemen companies who advertise on Tv that they can compare prices - the Meerkat mob etc.

Lang, I found as long as you have something historic insured with them, they will also do the wife's shopping trolley. I have everything with them, houses included. They also used to do my bike when I rode to work. They will not do our caravan as it's not old enough (1990, might be now?).

Lorry is now with Shannons but the NRMA usedd to do him in the past and he is on full NSW rego not Club.
Trying to think of the Broker mob that covered Lorry for the first 2 years. I thought they were looking after me until I found out different price wise.

Just checked with the secretary and find our normal cars are also with Shannons for third party/property, not full insurance. As you say they require an historic vehicle to be insured to extend the cover (maybe something to do with not competing with their parent company). They will not insure my OKA because it is classed as a motorhome.

Great rates for old cars as we found a request for just third party property insurance was met with an offer for full insurance for the same amount,

When old mate wrote off my 1942 Jeep a couple of years ago I took it on a trailer to their authorised panel shop who sent a few photos to Shannons. Within 30 minutes I got a call to say they were writing it off and please provide bank details. Next morning there was $20,000 in my bank account. They offered to dispose of the wreck or I could keep it, which of course I did.

If you can do a deal with them try to do it!

I hope your mate has fully recovered from that. Sounded nasty.

Yeah. 3 months in hospital. Several problems remaining poor bugger.

His own fault, turned around to stop something flapping, pulled the wheel and gracefully flew off a 10 metre high bank at 80kmh.
