    confused insuring a Cat C?

    what do i have to do to insure a cat c?

    looking at a pug 106 for my bro,

    the pug had damage to it when in was 18months old, the woman has had it for the past 7 years with no problems?

    what happens when i go to insure it? do i need to tell them? will it cost me extra?

    it will be on the insurance register, so they will know from the reg plate...

    All it ever really affects is how much the insurers pay out in the event of a claim as the car already has a major loss against it..

    I've done several cat C's and D's now ( cheap cars for family members) and we've never had any issues getting cover for them.

    I wouldnt dismiss the idea mate, if its been repaired properly, especially with a cat c, they can be a bargain. I bought a 52 plate peugeot 307 sw hdi with 50000 miles for about 2 grand and that was a cat d.

    I think the only problems buying a cat c or d car is the resale value, but in my case im not planning on selling it, gonna keep it till it dies

    cat c's need a vic check to ensure repair has been done to spec,cat d's dont. as long as its been checked out and has had an mot since the damage has been repaired, then there is usually no problem with insurance.
