Re: [MH-list] tracking systems/insurance requirements

Simon Whitehead

I recently took delivery of a new hymer and was confronted with the same news; that a tracker was needed to satisfy the insurance requirements. We had one fitted as that was the only way of dealing with the issue.

I am curious about your comment that you would lose some of your NCB. Why?

Given the rate of depreciation new vans suffer, I would think that, as you suggest, you just might be under the limit.

My insurance is coming up for renewal, my van has been insured with

The brokers tell me they now require tracking systems as a condition
of insurance, for vans above a certain value. We had an expensive
alarm system fitted to our new van, so I am reluctant to shell out
what is a huge amount of money on another system. Changing brokers
would mean losing a proportion of NCB though.
We may now fall under the value threshold, so could renew without
fitting one but at a higher premium than a dearer van with one
I am interested in other members views or experience of these
systems in general and also in relation to insurance requirements.

Tell me your tales!
