AIC has been insuring classic cars and special type vehicles for many years, but with our recent acquisition of the Diamond Classics business we are even more focused on delivering a quality service to this insurance sector. 

As part of our ongoing commitment to this exciting marketplace we are doing lots of work, which we hope the Classic Vehicle community will utilise. We have pulled together a list of local Car Shows to us in Hertfordshire that you can browse here. Next we are delving into the world of Classic Car Auctions and have provided you with a list of  up and coming events we think are worth adding to your calendar. If there are any events that you think we have missed, reach out Twitter today.
