Classic car insurance works similarly to a regular auto policy, with the benefit of having coverage for your vehicle’s agreed value and its specifications such as usage, storage, and more. It takes more than age to make it a classic. A collector car isn’t just a way to get around. It’s an investment that will continue to appreciate in coming years.
Not all classic or antique cars are used the same. We will work with you to select the appropriate policy to accommodate coverage needs, miles driven, vehicle age, and vehicle modifications to make sure you have the best policy to meet your needs.

Classic Car insurance is similar to standard car insurance with a few additions:
Specialized repairs or restoration if damaged
Classic parts replacements
The definition of a classic car and other types of cars will vary by insurance company. It’s a good idea to discuss your specific car with your insurance agent to find out what type of coverage your car is eligible for.
Classic Car Insurance can cover a wide range of vehicles, depending on the insurance company. Here are some types of vehicles that might be eligible for Classic Car Insurance:
Agreed value is a type of coverage where you and your insurance company settle upon the value of your vehicle when you take out the policy.
Agreed value can be a great approach because it gives you the opportunity to explain to the insurance company everything you’ve put into the car and why it may have more value than other similar vehicles. In the event of a covered loss, you’ll be reimbursed the lessor of the repair cost to fix the vehicle or the agreed value, regardless of any depreciation.
Classic cars require special insurance, and most plans require that they be kept in an appropriate garage. You will need to check with your state.
In addition to stating that the vehicle will be sheltered from the elements and vandals, you can also expect to send pictures to the company to verify that you have the right structure.
Before you can get your vehicle insured as a classic car, your classic has to be officially registered that way.
There are extra steps you have to take when you register a classic car with the DMV. These requirements vary by state and are in place to cut down on fraud.
