Specialist, comprehensive, flexible

The Howden Classic Motor Trade team has a real passion for helping people who collect and work with classic and historic vehicles. We provide tailored insurance cover for specialists in every part of the classic car industry – full vehicle restoration, maintenance, coach trimming and repair, to those who run storage facilities, transport companies, museums and businesses involved in historic race preparation. We can also insure private individuals with vehicle collections.

We can offer:

  • A bespoke product to suit your business requirements or private collection
  • Interest-free instalments to spread the cost to your business
  • Free risk management services to support you and your business
