    Okay, that post code risk calculator is not just the only major rating factor on your insurance.....

    I did list a few others above... Occupation and also your employment status- E.g Self employed, Director... where vehicles kept, mileage and use of the vehicle.

    I work at an insurance broker and there are pages and pages of calculations to get to the premium your quoted and your individual risk. I mean it could be worse....we could all have little boxes in our cars that determine how much a policy would cost! lol

    Thieves, vandals and fraudulent claimers travel around. The 'WA' postcode area is a hot spot for fraudulent claiming.

    It's incredibly unlikely an insurer will pick up on it that way, much more likely it'll be picked up at claim stage, which, if we're honest is when you really do want your insurance cover to be worth the paper it is written on.

    Which is why it's better safe than sorry!

    I see no reason to skimp on not declaring mods, if you can't afford to run the car, don't buy it in the first place!, or don't modify it and keep it standard!

    My business use bugs me, I am viewed the same as someone who uses their car all the time for business use, I go to the occasional meeting or to visit a site to do a survey. My business mileage is less than 12k a year, current total is around 1500 since April.

    But why does Lymm show near enough a double the amount of risk than the likes of Orford? Ifs bonkers but never realised Warrington was that bad!
