Modified classics are not only a slice of history, they’re also beloved treasures that have hours upon hours invested into them. At Keith Michaels, we’re all fellow car enthusiasts like you, from the modified to the prestige. This means that we truly understand what it’s like to be a specialist car owner, from the hours spent detailing, to sourcing those hard-to-find parts to fix a problem.
We’ve been arranging specialist insurance for over 30 years now, and are well respected in many car communities, including Japanese classic cars.
Agreed Value Policies Available for Modified Classics
We understand that the true value of your car is not always reflected when you’ve invested love and care into modifying your classic car, which is why agreed value policies are often preferred. This ensures that in the event of an accident, you’re compensated for the agreed, actual value of your car, not the determined value.
Show Car Insurance for your Modified Classic
If you’ve invested this much time and money into your car, you’re going to want to show it off. We can arrange cover for this too, for that additional bit of protection.
What Modifications Can We Cover on your Classic Car?
We can cover all manner of modifications, from simple cosmetic changes like wraps, to more advanced modifications like engine remaps, uprated brakes and body kits. Read our car modifications guide to learn more about the modifications we can cover.
From kit cars and classic electric conversions to remapped classics, we’re able to not only provide insurance, but be competitive in our pricing and benefits. This means that you’re not paying through the roof for a specialist policy like you would from a high street insurer.

Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
