ERS are the UK’s largest specialist motor insurer with over 70 years’ experience and teams of dedicated experts. Whilst most get their insurance through a website aggregator or comparison website, owners of supercars, classics, kit or specialist vehicles may need to speak to an insurance broker who, in turn speaks to a specialist insurer, like ERS.
Robert talks about specialist electric vehicles with ERS
As sales of electric vehicles rapidly increase, there is also a growing market of specialist electric vehicles; from supercars to converted classics or specialist catering vehicles to everyday electric fleets and taxis.
In the first of this brand new series, Robert speaks to Martin Hall, Active Underwriter at ERS The Specialist Motor Insurer, to find out why providing the right cover and breakdown service for these electric vehicles takes specialist knowledge.
Robert talks about prestige electric vehicles with ERS
The car industry is changing rapidly and there are some exciting Prestige electric cars on the horizon. Car companies including Tesla, Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, Polestar and Lotus already have impressive top end EVs available and we expect many more from car manufacturers over the coming years.
In the second episode of this series with ERS The specialist motor insurer, Robert speaks to Sam Prever, Regional Prestige Underwriter, about why insurance requirements for electric supercars are different and how ERS can help provide the right cover.
Robert talks about classic conversions with ERS
As more people make the switch to electric cars, where does this leave fans of classic cars like the original VW Beetle, the Ferrari 308 and the Triumph Stag? The answer could be converting these classic cars to electric, giving them a new lease of life with cheaper running costs and improved performance.
In the next instalment of our series with ERS The specialist motor insurer, Robert finds out from Senior Underwriter, Alan Bradbury, about how ERS are able to help provide specialist motor insurance for converted electric classic cars and why this is important to help preserve both entry level and high end classics.
Robert talks about commercial electric vehicles with ERS
One of the biggest growth markets for electric vehicles is the commercial sector where going electric can result in huge cost savings for the business. Big companies such as Amazon are leading by example with their adoption of electric delivery vans but smaller businesses are now understanding the benefits too. From vans, buses and coaches, to taxis, catering trucks and even tuk tuks, commercial vehicles are starting to make the move to electric.
Robert speaks to Mitul Malkan, Commercial Product Manager at ERS The specialist motor insurer, to understand why bespoke specialist motor insurance is needed to meet the varied requirements of a wide range of both purpose built and after-market converted electric commercial vehicles.
Robert talks about Electric Vehicle breakdown with ERS
With more and more electric vehicles hitting the road, breakdown and recovery services are having to make significant changes to meet the needs of these different vehicles. EV drivers need the reassurance that their breakdown and recovery service has the right knowledge, the right training and the right equipment to get customers back on the road. For example, if your EV has run out of battery, a charging van may be required as well as in-depth knowledge of the nearest charging points in the area.
In this final episode of the series, Robert speaks to Dave Burnet and Ben Johnson from the motor breakdown team at ERS The specialist motor insurer, to find out how they have transformed their breakdown product to meet the requirements of the specialist EV market. Their tailored service caters for specialist electric vehicles including supercars, converted classics, commercial and fleet vehicles.
