Classic Car FAQs
Can I Use A Regular Auto Policy?
You can use a regular auto policy for your classic vehicle, but this type of policy may not provide you with the proper amount of coverage. A classic vehicle carries a value that is far different from a regular vehicle. In order to get the amount of coverage that is appropriate, you will need classic car insurance.
How Is Insurance Coverage Determined?
The only way to determine the coverage amount for a classic vehicle is to sit down with an insurance representative. This professional is trained to evaluate the true value of the vehicle. After this evaluation, an amount of coverage will be set.
What Factors Will Be Considered?
There are many factors that affect the value of a classic vehicle. The age and model of the car will be the first consideration. Any improvements that have been made to the car will also be considered. This is where you will want to share with the insurance agent the money you have invested in the vehicle. The last factor will be the value of the vehicle in local collector markets. This, again, is very different from the market value of regular cars.
All of this information will be collected and a coverage amount will be determined for you.
