Congratulations! You just bought your first collectible car. Now what?
A strong desire to parade your purchase all over town is expected; however, don't get so caught up in the excitement of your new antique car that you forget to properly protect and care for your vehicle. It's important to know how to prepare for an insurance quotation.
- Don't plan on using your classic car for general transportation. Any vehicle that is used for general transportation is not eligible for insurance at Classic Car Ins.
- Do provide proof of another regular use vehicle for each driver in your household.
- Do fully document all modifications and alterations made to your vehicle.
- Don't expect anyone under 26 years of age to be eligible for coverage. Eligible drivers must be at least 26 years old and have a good driving record with no more than one at-fault accident or moving violation in the last three years.
- Do have a clean household record. There may be no more than two violations in the last three years for an entire household.
- Do enjoy your vehicle. Pleasure driving is allowed at Classic Car Ins, which means you are not restricted to parades, car shows, and club events.
- Don't expose your car to theft and vandalism. Make sure not to leave your vehicle unattended for extended periods of time, such as in a parking lot or parked on the street for hours.
- Do expect to store your vehicle in a fully enclosed and locked garage when not in use. Carports, temporary garages, zip up garages, and covered vehicles kept outside are not acceptable for coverage.
