Owners of ex-Military vehicles are astutely aware of the challenges they face in order to make the vehicles road legal. Even after you have made the appropriate modifications, got your vehicle registered and received an assigned plate, you are still likely to encounter issues with insurance. Most companies simply are not equipped with the information to insure specialist army vehicles or the military variant.

With so many vehicles and specifications to consider, at Carole Nash we appreciate the requirements of individuals and work hard to tailor a policy to insure your military vehicle, whether it is an ex-SAS ‘Pink Panther’ Land Rover, Daimler Ferret armoured car, Alvis Scorpion reconnaissance vehicle or T-34 Soviet tank. We can cater for all road-legal ex-MOD vehicles from the Army, Navy, Marines, RAF, Special Forces or Reserves and offer insurance for military vehicles imported from the EU, United States and Eastern Bloc.

Cover offered through us is for land and water vehicles (with the exclusion of hovercrafts) providing you keep them on terra-firma, off the waterways and out of the lakes, seas and oceans.

Many ex-military policies, including those through us, only cover green-laning as these are still public highways, however, we also offer a specific off-road policy for people insuring vehicles for off-roading at pre-arranged club events or pay and play days.

Although many insurers may not consider covering your ex-military vehicle owing to the fears that come with unfamiliarity, at Carole Nash we know that not only are ex-military vehicles built with durability in mind, a passionate community can help ensure that it is well-maintained.
