I took out a one day any driver policy with Norwich Union (at the time). Cost £20, I think. Told the chap who’d come to look at it (with the money) that he was welcome to test drive it if he paid for the insurance, and that I’d refund him if he bought the car. Seemed to work, ‘cos he bought it.Posted 4 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
I’ve never sold a car privately, having always part exchanged. What’s the collective wisdom on letting someone test drive? I’m very conscious they will – at best – have 3rd party cover only on their insurance. My insurer has advised that the person coming to see my car would need to add the car on their policy for fully comp cover. Is it the done thing to ask the prospective buyer to make sure my car is added to their policy before they come to see it?Posted 4 years ago
