    BIKE INSURANCE?

    does anyone else have any problems getting their bike on home insurance? mine say they will only cover me for 500.00. is this the norm? am i getting shafted? or are there specific companys that can insure to a decent amount? 2.5 - 3k?
    can mbr help me on this one??

    Re: BIKE INSURANCE?

    Interestingly, we're just about to put together a feature on this very topic. Was hoping some of you guys could help us out and tell us about your experiences: who you insure with and why; if you've ever had a bike stolen and what the outcome was; why you take out insurance.

    Post em here if you have any ideas.

    NorthernD, M&S used to do some of the best insurance that included bikes as part of home contents. Also check out British Cycling, CTC, Dogtags, E&L... and wait for my feature in the August issue of course!

    I insure my bikes through the household insurance attached to the mortgage with the Woolwich, Barclays taken it over now I think.

    I tried getting a quote from a specific bike insurance company for comparison purposes but they wanted more for 1 push bike than BMW Motrad want for my 2 motorbikes and they're fully comp!

    Re: BIKE INSURANCE?

    I currently have mine as a sepcific item with Halifax and it is insured both at home and away from the home basically anywhere providing it is locked up. I keep it in a lock up garage and it is valued at 2500 for 50.25 per year as part of my home and contents policy.Which i think is extremely reasonable it also covers accidental damage as long as it is not used for racing which it isn't as its a Kona Dawg supreme so a bit on the heavy side for that plus i'm nowhere near fit enough or interested in that side of biking...
