Classic Car Insurance
Classic Car Insurance Information
If you don't own an average car, why would you settle for average auto insurance policy? Specialty auto insurance is a great fit for individuals who own collectible and/or antique cars and vehicles. Dakkak Insurance is proud to partner with Hagerty Insurance to protect your classic vehicles.
Specialty vehicles are obviously different from standard issue autos, but there are some differences that can be especially troublesome when searching for insurance coverage. First, there is the challenge in assessing the cost of certain types of damage to a specialty vehicle. With specialty vehicle insurance, you may have access to an insurance adjuster who has the right knowledge and experience to properly assess your claim.
Another benefit to specialty auto insurance is that the value of the specialty vehicle is often much higher than traditional policies will cover. In order to ensure that you get the full value of the vehicle and that you have a policy that considers total replacement value for the specialized auto, specialty insurance is the way to go. Your policy will have what’s called an, “Agreed Value” that will spell out the amount you get in a total loss situation.
Antique and collectible cars are not generally driven daily and certainly not used to run everyday errands. This means that the mileage for specialty autos is often much lower than for a non-specialty car. Specialty auto insurance policies take this into consideration when establishing your rates. They also understand that standard safety measures may be missing and while a traditional auto insurance policy might penalize a driver for that, specially the auto insurance is tailored to that lack of safety devices.
Our rates are drastically lower than standard. For example: The standard rate on a '65 Mustang could hit $800/year. Our average premium on the same car? Just $110.
