Antique Vehicle Insurance - What You Must Consider

Apr 27, 2008
Many people choose to restore and then display their antique cars at shows. No serious owner would ever fail to insure this prized possession. With such interest in old cars you will not be surprised to learn there are antique car insurance companies that take a particular interest in insuring this type of vehicle. With so many classic car insurers available, an owner should have no problem insuring their prized possession. Competition amongst insurers should also mean a quote that meets with the owner's financial requirements.

The area of antique vehicle insurance has not gone unnoticed by commercial auto insurers who now have special policies for the collectors of antique cars. These plans reflect the specialized nature of this type of auto cover and are often called 'collectors auto insurance'. Although the policies may seem the same as the policies that regular auto cover provides, they are not and the agent will require exact details of the car to be insured before a full quotation can be supplied. The agent will be able to help you choose what level of coverage you require and can afford and the level at which the deductible needs to be set.

One particular benefit of insuring your antique car through a large commercial insurer is the fact that they should be reliable; these companies usually have a good reputation as they have been established for many years. The other advantage of this type of insurer is their ability to also arrange the protection on any other regular vehicle you own. The security of having an established company provide antique car insurance for an older car is well worth the premium they will charge.

There are also many independent auto insurers available through which you can purchase car cover for an older car; the downside being that you may have to use a (different) standard auto insurer for any other car you own. Some of these independent insurance companies will only insure a particular type of classic car, so if the car you are attempting to insure is particularly rare, it may be difficult to find a provider that will provide coverage for it. It is worth doing some research when choosing an independent antique car insurer to make sure they have a good reputation as you will have a great deal of money at stake.

It can be an awkward situation when you have been regularly paying your insurance premium only to find your insurance company will not pay out on a claim you have made. Locating an antique car insurance company is not as straightforward as finding a regular auto insurance provider so it may be necessary to persevere to end up having your car protected by the correct insurance policy. Most classic cars are worth many thousands of dollars and that is a big loss if the car is ever stolen or destroyed so having the right cover may be the most valuable protection you ever purchase.
