Aston Martin Works is a shrine to the iconic British brand - a living and breathing workshop facility for vehicle servicing, repair and restoration of both new and classic Aston Martins.

La Playa’s mantra of ‘Insurance with Intelligence’ is unique and helped the company stand head and shoulders above the competition. It’s our privilege to provide insurance and advice to Aston Martin Works’ clientele for their new purchases and beyond.” Mike Taylor-West, Head of Private Client & Marine, London.
La Playa Private Clients provide insurance portfolios to those with a range of luxury items: homes, cars, boats, jewelry and antiques, but to name a few. Working with a collection of specialist insurers La Playa are able to provide solutions that truly reflect and exceed client expectations, all of which are delivered with La Playa’s trademark boutique style. With in-house art, motor and yacht expertise, they deliver outstanding service and enjoy a client retention rate of 97%.
Mike has over 18 years’ experience in Private Client and Marine Insurance and operates from London, the home of global marine insurance.
A client’s Aston Martin DB6, inherited from his father, was insured for £100,000. On the way to a family event the DB6 was hit and damaged extensively. The insurer chauffeured the client and his wife to the event, then took the car to his preferred garage.
Repairs were estimated at £110,000. Most insurers deem a car a write-off if repairs cost over 60% of its value. With a Portfolio Policy the client could choose a £100,000 cash payment – but because of the sentimental value he chose repair.
The insurer paid over the Agreed Value and charged no excess as it was a total loss. The car was returned in 6 weeks in perfect order.
