Collectors of vintage automobiles typically have a lot of money invested in their vehicles. As their agent, you want to help them protect their investment in the best way possible. While standard car insurance works for, well, standard cars, it just doesn’t meet the highly specific requirements of collector, classic and custom vehicles, not to mention considering an owner’s passion for their hobby. How do you ensure that your clients are covered properly? Work with an industry leader that knows what it takes to insure collectible cars.
Why Do Insurance Agents Choose Classic Auto Insurance?
Classic Auto Insurance works closely with agents all across the country. Often, we find not all independent insurance agencies have the knowledge or experience in the collector market to get classic auto owners the coverage their valuable vehicles need. That’s where Classic Auto Insurance steps in. If you want to help your client get the maximum amount of protection for their most precious assets, you have to assemble the right specialty policy. Knowledge of the collector market is a must if you want to properly value the vehicle, not to mention familiarity with a variety of other factors, such as how many miles they drive each year.
Classic Auto Insurance can tailor a policy to give your client the maximum coverage and reduce their liability. Our underwriting partner, American Modern Insurance Group (AMIG), is recognized nationally for their expertise in specialty insurance. Working with the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Classic Auto, you can provide your clients with the customized coverage they need at a price they will appreciate.
