any recommendations for classic car insurance?
I just had my first claim in over 50 years with J.C. Taylor. I hit a very deep chuck hole and damaged all four fenders on my 1914 T speedster
(left deep impressions of the fender brackets in each fender).Great and quick service leaving me very pleased.
You'll never hear a bad word said about Hagerty.
JC Taylor has been my classic car insurance provider for over 20 years. My dad used them for close to 50 years. They have always paid claims promptly, even the time mom ran one of the Model A's into the other.
Iv had Hagerty for years. What ever you do, do not go with State Farm for anything. I have a few horror stories about State Farm.
Hagerty. I had a classic car that was destroyed in a crash. They paid every cent of the appraised value. I agree with Will about State Farm and also All State (the two state companies). Both have a reputation for fighting claims.
I had a small claim with Haggerty and they were very fair.
I finally switched from State Farm to Haggerty last spring. No claims, but just dealing with Haggerty has been much easier. I wanted to raise the value of one of our cars after finishing restoration and State Farm wanted to do an inspection of the car and told me to find several other examples selling for the price I wished to insure for. When I asked Haggerty about the value, they didn't hesitate. And, even though I raised the value significantly, the premium was within a few dollars of State Farm's.
5 autos with Grundy Worldwide for over 30 years but have never needed to file a claim.
Speaking of Grundy he appeared on Brad Meltzer's new show. The story concerned the theft of the James Bond DB-5 from an airport hanger a few years back. He (naturally) feels it was an inside job but without proof the paid the owner. 3 mil.
I use J.C. Taylor. Last February we were on a tour in Arizona and I was reaching into the trunk (which had been converted to a rumble seat) for a tool and I bumped the bracket and the lid fell on my left hand. I quickly jerked my hand almost out of the way, but it nearly amputated the tip of my middle finger. We went to the emergency room where 9 stitches were applied. They sent a bill for $950. Medicare nor my insurance wouldn't pay for it, because it was an "automobile accident". They said to apply to my Auto insurance under the medical portion, which I did. The auto insurance paid for all but $50 which medicare actually covered, so I didn't pay anything except for delay time and pain and suffering.
I watched that show, Charlie - interesting opinion !
