In instances where your Suzuki has been stolen, you'll need to report the theft to the police, who'll give you a unique crime reference number. We need this to proceed with your claim.

For tax purposes, cars don't get classic status until they're 40 years old, while HMRC considers them heritage at 15 years of age and with a valuation of £15,000 or more. Some competitors won't insure cars until they're at least 20 years old, but that's not the case with us.
We believe that certain cars, like your beloved Suzuki, were built for classic status. That’s why we insure both heritage models and modern classics when used in the true sense of the word.
Protect your cherished Suzuki with the specialists.
