Show Us Your Shed!

#FJShowUsYourShed – the Footman James competition 
to find the best enthusiast’s space in the UK
 

• Competition to celebrate motoring fans’ amazing spaces

• A team of judges, led by Harry Metcalfe, will award the first ‘Shed Head’ trophy

• Enter at https://www.footmanjames.co.uk/show-us-your-shed-2021 and share on social media using #FJShowUsYourShed

 
 
Specialist vehicle insurance provider, Footman James, is launching its Show Us Your Shed competition to celebrate the spaces that allow automotive enthusiasts to indulge in their passion.
 
Calling on motoring nuts, engineering fans, closet collectors, and garagistas: Footman James wants to see the ‘sheds’ that house classic and collectable passions: be they compact or palatial, grand or grungy, clinical or chaotic.
 
Providing an invaluable refuge for many over the last 12-months, the concept of the shed can be more than a traditional garage space (essential for classic car ownership) and can take the form of spare rooms, outbuildings or even aircraft hangars. Essential for relaxation as well as mindfulness, today’s sheds come in all shapes and sizes.
 
Unveiled by Footman James ambassador and motoring authority Harry Metcalfe, the two- month social media competition will award one space the inaugural ‘Shed Head’ trophy. Harry Metcalfe said: “The appeal of the modern ‘shed’ as a place to escape and recharge is
universal – a place of craft, for learning new skills and creating new ideas. That’s what Show
Us Your Shed is all about.”
 
Open to everyone, not just Footman James clients, Show Us Your Shed is easy to enter via a form on the Footman James website. Simply complete the competition form with an image of your space and a few words on why you love it. You can then share your entry on Twitter,
Instagram and Facebook, using the #FJShowUsYourShed. Each week FJ will be highlighting entries from across the country on their social media pages, covering the vast variety and styles created by enthusiasts.
 
David Bond, Managing Director of Footman James said “It’s not about how much the ‘shed’
costs, or how big it is, but the passion and the personality behind it. If you have framed every tax disk you have ever bought, or devoted a bookcase to a car magazine subscription covering decades, then we want to see it and share your love for it.”
 
At the end of the competition, the Footman James team along with Harry Metcalfe will shortlist all submissions and decide on the one shed that stands out from the crowd.

Footman James PRESS RELEASE

09 MARCH 2021

INSURANCE SOLUTIONS FOR THE CLASSIC AND MODERN CAR OWNER

FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLICATION

Insure your modern and classic vehicles under one policy with Flex from Footman James.

Flex from Footman James is a multi-vehicle insurance product which allows you to combine your modern and classic vehicle insurance policies. This means you will be able to enjoy a single renewal date and premium each year. You can insure modern and classic cars, bikes, kit cars, sports cars and almost everything in between.
 
With a Flex policy, you will receive all the typical benefits you would expect from a modern car insurance policy including accruing your No Claims Bonus on your modern vehicles and cover to attend shows and events for your classic vehicle.
 
Like any typical Footman James policy, you can also choose to benefit from our FJ+ range of add-ons such as FJ Rescue provided by the RAC, lost keys and legal protection to assist you no matter what arises.
 
If your classic and modern cars or bikes have different renewal dates, you can still benefit from a Flex policy by adding your vehicles at each point they are due for renewal, resulting in all your classic and modern vehicles eventually sitting under a single insurance policy.  
 
Our Flex policy has been introduced to complement our current Multi-Vehicle and Private Client policies.
  • For owners of 5 or less modern and classic vehicles, Flex is a straightforward way to place them all onto one insurance policy.
  • For those with more than 5 vehicles, our Multi-Vehicle policy offers the best solution, with a dedicated account handler who can administrate a larger, more complex collection.
  • For those with a high-value collection of vehicles, watches, home and marine, our Private Client team can create a bespoke policy that suits your requirements.
