The usual suspects footman James, Adrian flux etc tend to offer 'off the road cover'. I've used it before when I knew my vehicle was going to be off the road for a while.

If the storage is where you live, it can be as cheap to just do a limited mile policy rather than a laid up policy.
Worth checking both prices!

I used Footman James, they gave me more confidence than others because they were very interested in the current physical condition and made clear they were insuring exactly what I have.

Many insurers are not interested in knowing, trying to put it down as a complete, standard vehicle and instead focus on getting your money. I get suspicious that they are trying to stop me from accurately describing the state of the vehicle, giving them room to refute a claim should one be made.

Every time I've looked at laid up policies, they have been the same price as limited mileage ones.

Never understood the logic?

It does seem that the two words logic and insurance rarely appear in the same sentence.
