We take a different approach than many when it comes to auto insurance. We offer Basic™ coverage to simply cover others on the road and so you don’t have to come out of pocket for those expenses. Extended™ coverage so that you have and your passengers have coverage if you are injured in a vehicle accident. Complete™ coverage that takes Basic, Extended, and then adds that extra coverage needed to fully cover the vehicle you drive against any and all situations and damage.

Vehicles under an unendorsed Personal Auto policy are paid on a Actual Cash Value basis. Actual cash value is computed by subtracting depreciation from replacement cost, while depreciation is figured by establishing an expected lifetime of an item and determining what percentage of that life remains. This percentage, multiplied by the replacement cost, provides the actual cash value. – Confusing, right? Imagine your classic being handled by an adjuster who is solely trained on this valuation? This valuation is simply not designed for a vehicle that appreciates year after year.
A handful of Auto insurance carriers offer Stated Value and usually at a discount because of how it benefits the insurance company primarily. It is vehicle insurance where an amount is “stated” at the onset of the policy. You basically tell the insurer what your car is worth (with proper documentation) and it is insured for that amount. The caveat here, however, is that the insurance company can choose to pay you either the Stated Value or the Actual Cash Value, whichever is less.
Quality Classic Car – Collector Vehicle insurance is paid at an Agreed Value. Agreed Value is an amount that you and the insurance agreed upon at the start of your insurance coverage. – Simple and straightforward from the very beginning!
Agreed Value, coverage primarily offered by specialty classic/collector insurers, is based on the proven value of your car as determined and agreed upon by you and the insurance company, according to appraisals, photos, or other relevant documentation. With Agreed Value coverage, the insurance company will guarantee that they will pay this agreed-upon value in the event of a covered total loss.
