How old are you and do you have convictions etc?

I've added my mum on my policy as a named driver which dropped the price.

Try Adrian Flux. I've just insured a Hijet panel van through them which was originally listed as a pickup. They changed the details no bother - in fact it dropped the price by about 40 quid.

42 year old fart, 2 non fault claims and no non claims to add to the policy...

Would be struggling to recommend Adrian Fuxup, i insured my bikes with them this year, not impressed, ok till you try to contact them.
Have you tried business insurance? Mine has full business cover cheaper than trying to get private cover. Only downside to it is you can't get driving other vehicles cover but as i have that for the Merc it's not an issue for me.

I used to insure mine on a van/commercial policy and it was much cheaper.
