VMCC Club Cover - Insurance for Member's Bikes

VMCC Club Cover

VMCC Club Cover, provided by Peter James Insurance 0121 274 5355 has proven to be best value in 88% of sample cases on a sample size of 25 risks, benchmarked against three key providers in the market*. This market-testing work undertaken by the Club suggests that for the great majority of members VMCC Club Cover is likely to be the cheapest available on a like-for-like basis, but as a point of principle, the Club advises members that they should always shop around for quotes, both for new policies and at renewal.

VMCC Club Cover has been designed with you in mind and includes UK and European breakdown, as well as helmets and leathers cover as standard. A key benefit to cover is the ability to secure an agreed value so, if the worst happens you are guaranteed to get what you or an independent valuer has said the machine is worth rather than the insurance company’s estimate of its market value.

Supporting Young Riders

The team at Peter James Insurance know that insurance can often be a barrier to young people being able to own or enjoy classic vehicles, and as part of the VMCC club partnership they have created two schemes for young riders:

  • Young owners of a classic bike
  • Younger additional riders on their parents’ vehicle(s)

If you’re a young member of the club and would like to get a quote from Peter James Insurance, please speak to your main club contact. The club will then contact us to arrange a callback with you, where a member of their friendly team will be able to give you a quote.
