Carole Nash has announced a range of improvements to their classic bike policies.
SPECIALIST insurance brokers Carole Nash has boosted its Irish portfolio with an extended range of benefits now available to owners of classic motorcycles.
In a move unique to the Irish market, the company has decided to lower the age at which it classes a motorbike as a classic vehicle. Whereas the term previously only applied to bikes aged over 15 years, it will now incorporate machines as soon as they reach 10 years old.
The minimum age at which a motorcyclist is allowed to ride a classic bike has also been reviewed, dropping down from 25 to 23 years old. Additionally, Carole Nash announced that Irish bikers who possess a learner permit will now be permitted to insure a classic bike, a privilege previously reserved to full license owners only.
Starting this month, eligible Irish motorcyclists will have access to a wider range of benefits – some of which no other insurers offer – including free agreed value, excesses as low as €25, cover for club rallies and salvage retention rights. Members of an owners' club can also secure an exclusive discount on their insurance of up
Rebecca Donohue, Head of Marketing for Carole Nash, said:
“Our revamped classic bike insurance is an exciting step for the business, and something we're confident Irish riders are going to be equally enthusiastic about. The new-look policy creates more diversity and extra peace of mind for owners of younger bikes, who can now secure more substantial levels of protection for their pride and joy.
We've been working closely with the local bike community for over 15 years, actively listening to our
customers, and as a result we're constantly evolving to make sure we offer exactly what they need. Our latest move is further evidence of this."
Chris Hill, Vice Chairman for the Irish Vintage and Veteran Motorcycle Club (IVVMCC), commented:
"We believe that Carole Nash's latest move is going to be of great benefit to our members. Aside from the low policy excess, to have free agreed value on classic bikes means greater peace of mind to owners who pride themselves in maintaining their machines to very high standards.
"The additional discount for club members also shows that Carole Nash recognises the role organisations such as ours play in the preservation of classic machines. The company is to be congratulated for continuously supporting the Classic scene in Ireland, from the time they entered the market back in the 90s with their Emerald Policy."
