On average you spend 37,000 hours in your car and drive 800,000 miles during your lifetime (enough to get to the moon and back three times!). Chances are in that time you will be involved in an accident whether fault or non-fault and it makes sense to have the right insurance in place should this happen. Car insurance is a legal requirement and it is a criminal offence to drive without it. Couple this with the fact you would wish to protect your prized asset then car insurance through an expert is a must.

Mr Calver, Private Car Insurance

Private Car Insurance in detail

Private car insurance provides many features and benefits:

  • Option for Comprehensive or Third Party Fire and Theft cover
  • Personal injury cover
  • Repair costs
  • Protected no claims bonuses
  • Low excesses
  • Business use
  • Multiple driving options

There is also the option to incorporate additional products

  • Breakdown Full breakdown cover including, Homestart, Onward Travel, European Breakdown etc
  • Key care Cover for loss of keys (home, office or car)
  • Motor legal Cover for legal expenses and defense, should a motoring dispute end up in court
  • Uninsured loss Cover for uninsured losses
  • Gap insurance Cover for difference between write-off value and invoice/finance costs
  • Excess protect Option to purchase cover to reduce your excess exposure

There is also the option to incorporate additional products

When comparing insurance products it is important to compare on a like for like basis. Many of the companies that promise cheap insurance will do so by stripping out covers and applying large excesses and low limits leaving limited cover.

Always ensure you have the correct use noted for your vehicle. If you do even the smallest drive in conjunction with your employment you will need business use (other than travelling to and from work). Failure to do so means the damage to your vehicle may not be covered in the event of an accident.

Always be as accurate as possible when answering questions as what may seem a small oversight could leave to a claim not being covered.


  • You have to tell us about all convictions unless they are spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. All motoring convictions will need to be declared within a set time frame as explained by your adviser.

  • Yes, increasing excesses can make a sizeable difference to insurance premiums, however always ensure the excess is affordable.

  • Yes you can change vehicle. There will normally be a change in the premium reflective of the new vehicle and this will be on a pro-rata basis.

  • Yes you can change vehicles and drivers temporarily. There will be additional charges for making these changes and these will depend on individual circumstances.

  • We cover any modifications to the vehicle that are standard options. Non-standard options will need to be discussed with an adviser who will be able to arrange suitable insurance.

  • All claims whether fault or non-fault need to be declared to ensure your cover is placed on the correct basis.
