I commented on this problem - wow, over 2 years ago, of the difficulty in obtaining insurance for an electric scooter. Many of the most famous biker-friendly outfits weren't friendly to those of use using battery power. Honour was restored when a specialist broker (WHA or West Humberstone Acency) offered policies for the Vectrix at a reasonable price, through an insurer called 'Chaucer'. It seemed a good deal, and the policy seemed good (couln;t vouce what what it was like claiming, as I never had to). The gownside was WHA decided to give up the ghost, and sold on their customer base to Swinton. A broker that I have no particular wish to pay any money to, nd having seen their blandishments to make me renew through them, they must think I have no brains.
Chaucer do not deal direct, and even they could not suggest a broker who would offer their bike policy to cover Vectrix, I was told to phone around.
Finally stumbled on to insureance broker MCE Insurance, who will supply the same Chaucer Policy, fully comp and same excess, but for £15 more provide RAC cover as part of the deal.
Has anyone found any other UK company prepared to cover the VX1, and the usual route to find a quote is not much easier in 2010 as it was in 2008! The one good thing, is that even with Vectrix Corp's problem, it hasn;t mean a wholesale hike in insurance rates, which is something to be grateful for!
