Parking sensors and insurance
I was getting some insurance quotes today for the civic, when I was asked, "Is the car modified in any way?"
I asked whether self fitting the rear parking sensors classed as a modification and after doing some research, the guy on the end of the phone came back and said yes. He then said he would have to refer the question to the underwriters, to see whether,
a) They would continue to offer a quotation
b) By how much the premium would go up!
Seems a little strange to me that adding a set of £25 parking sensors, which will in fact help me to avoid bashing the car, may well put up the price of my insurance?!
Have a wait till about Tuesday to find out what the underwriters say, so its in the balance whether I install them or not at the moment...
