    Admiral and Mods

    Just called up Admiral to get a quote on a few mods I'm adding to the car, front lip, sideskirts and headlight brows. They've quoted an additioanl £38 which i'm chuffed with (thought it was going to be a lot more!). Anyway, it's weird as last time I called them up for just the front lip and they quoted the same, which makes me think that may be this is not for the actual mods, but the admin fee to add to the policy, didn't think to ask on this occasion but when I phone next to get it added, might just have to confirm! Any thoughts?

    Admiral were royal barstuards when I was with them last year, wanted somethin rediculous like £400 for some alloys that were already on the car when I bought it so ended up just not declarin them (which i know is naughty so please dont tell me off but i didnt have £400 at the time) and i bought a zorst on the cheap plannin to put it on but they wanted another £350 for that or somethin daft so just ended up sellin it...

    Done well there mate!

    Admiral's admin fee is £17.50 for any alteration to your policy after initially taking it out.

    We had both our modified astras with Admiral for 3 years on a multi car policy and they were really good. The modifications are not covered if you have an accident and will only be replaced with standard parts unless you pay an additional £19.99 which covers you for up to the value of £500.

    Nick I don't know why yours was so expensive, we insured a 1.8SRi and an SRi Turbo, both modded - one bodykitted, both with exhaust, both with optional extra alloys, lowered etc for a little over £1000, everything declared.

    Because I was 17/18 at the time and they like to take advantage of young drivers by giving you cheap quotes, tying you in for the year and then giving you massive premium changes when you want to change anything. So ive gathered with my experience and my group of friends.

    Opinions count, mine of admiral wasnt good but alot of people have good experiences si i read.

    The cost of yoru modifications is dependant on time left on policy.

    I paid £43 for new alloys and a 50mm drop on mine yet couple of months ago it was alot more. and they dont take advantage at all. The give you a low price for your standard car and thne u pay more when your modded as your deemed a greater risk.

    ATEOTD if your going to mod your car then go with a company that specialise in modded cars. then the initial higher cost will work out better.

    Simple really.

    they wont charge you a higher percentage just because your 17/18. the loading for a modification will be a percentage of the original premium

    They tried to charge me the admin fee to change my address when I moved. We had our multicar policy at the time which was 4 weeks off renewal so I told them if they wanted to keep my business they would waive the admin fee. Strangely after the guy had a conversation with his manager they decided that costing themselves over a grand for the sake of £17 wasn't really cost effective.
