"This initiative is about maximising the last of the summer season and helping people use their classics to the full, prior to the onset of the autumn."
(PRWEB UK) 11 September 2013
Classic car owners are invited to join in a week-long celebration of motoring this September for this year’s ‘Drive Your Classic to Work Week,’ backed by Heritage Classic Car Insurance and Classic Car Weekly magazine.
The week will kick off at the Beaulieu International Autojumble on 7th and 8th September before the working week starts. It will finish with Goodwood Revival on the 13th, 14th and 15th September.
Chris Wilkinson, Senior Partner of Heritage, explains, “This initiative is about maximising the last of the summer season and helping people use their classics to the full, prior to the onset of the autumn. These cars are meant for the road, not the garage, so it’s a great way for owners, and fellow motorists, to enjoy these classics in action.”
One thing drivers will need if commuting in a classic car during Drive Your Classic to Work Week is the right insurance cover. According to Heritage Classic Car Insurance, around 82% of classic car drivers don't opt for cover for commuting – as they only use their cars for social and domestic use. But what happens when the usual daily drive is in for a service and drivers take the classic to work instead? Using a classic car may turn a few heads but it's important to have the right cover in place, just in case the worst happens. If in doubt, insurance providers will double check exactly what is covered in the policy.
For Drive Your Classic to Work Week, Heritage Classic Car Insurance has decided to give all standard classic policy holders – including those starting a new policy in the run up to DYCTWW - free commuting cover from 7th to 15th September. This will be added to the customer’s policy without them having to notify Heritage of their involvement.
Chris added, “This way we can encourage all our customers to take part knowing that they are covered while out on the road during peak times.”
Classic Car Weekly editor Dave Richards added, “We want classic car owners to join with us in this national celebration of the classics we love, and get their car on the commute, the school run and their trips to the shops!”
Owners wishing to get involved can pledge their support and claim their commemorative window sticker can register via the Heritage website http://www.heritage-quote.co.uk. Heritage is also keen to hear from owners who already use their classic for their daily drive.
