In this brand new series, ERS share with us how they’re helping UK motor insurance brokers make the move to Specialist EV. With episodes covering electric supercars, classic conversions, modified street food trucks and motor breakdown for EV vehicles.

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 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?

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.
