What is Laid up Cover

We’re talking about cars in storage and transport really. Cars off the road for maintenance, for display purposes, project cars not yet able to be driven and even show cars or race cars that need to be either stored, worked on or transported to and from events and races.
This type of cover is what we call  stationary cover, so if it’s moving under its own power it’s not covered. So that’s the difference between your normal comprehensive cover and laid up cover. We do our best to be as clear as possible with our cover but always encourage to refer to the PDS available on this site and get in touch with the Enthusiast team  to discuss any questions you might have.

Laid up car insurance

Laid up means when your vehicle is not in use and is:
Laid up 1968 Ford Falcon 500 XT on trailer
Laid up 1975 Holden Torana SL facing to the back

What is your vehicle's value?

We take pride in being a preferred choice for specialised motor insurance, offering tailored coverage for your distinctive cars. Together, we’ll establish a mutually agreed value, considering your modifications and unique features. This agreed value is crucial for custom or rare models, which can be worth above and beyond standard vehicles.

Drive with confidence, knowing that our tailored coverage backs your one-of-a-kind vehicle.

Worn, tired or dismantled vehicles can be difficult to value but here the team at Enthusiast have decades of experience upon which to call on

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve got questions. Fire away, we love talking about all kinds of vehicles. But first these are questions we get all the time. For more information, please refer to our PDS.

1934 Ford Roadster
How does a nominated driver policy work?
We know you trust the people you let drive your vehicles. That’s why our Declared Driver policy only covers the approved people who’ll get behind the wheel. It gives you a greater peace of mind and a better price.
Will we insure a modified vehicle?
Enthusiasts make everything better. So we make sure modified vehicles still get the coverage they deserve. To be covered, simply disclose all the modifications you’ve made. If they meet Australian Design Rules (ADRs) and/or the Australian Vehicle Standards Rules (AVSR) of your State or Territory of Australia, then we’re all good!
What are salvage rights?
If it’s a total loss, and it’s that precious to you, you don’t have to lose everything. If it’s over 30 years old, salvage rights are automatically included in your policy. If your vehicle is 15 years old or more, the choice is yours – salvage rights are optional. Check out the exact details in the Policy Disclosure Statement.
Who’ll handle my claim?
Real people, real Australian’s, real motor enthusiasts. They can handle any issues or claims claims via phone or email. They’re on-call Monday to Friday between 9am-5pm AEST. Or if you’re into DIY, download a claims form from our website and off you go.
