Questions About Classic & Antique Auto Insurance
What Is Agreed Value?
Some classic auto insurance providers state the coverage amount - to repair or replace the vehicle - in a policy based on agreed value. Agreed value is typically derived from documentation like appraisals, photographs and receipts which the insurance company and policyholder use to come to an agreement on the value of the antique or classic car.
What Is the Difference Between an Antique & Classic Auto?
The Hartford defines an antique auto as being manufactured at least 25 years ago, and driven primarily in parades and exhibitions, and infrequently for other purposes. The Hartford defines a classic auto as a motor vehicle of the private passenger type which is 10 or more years old and may be used on a regular basis. Its value is significantly higher than the average value of other autos of the same make and model year.
Is Antique Auto Coverage Restricted to Parades & Exhibitions?
No. While The Hartford’s Antique Auto coverage is designed to cover your antique autos’ use primarily in car club activities, exhibitions, parades and other functions, it also covers you if you need to infrequently use your antique auto for other purposes.
What People Are Saying About The Hartford Classic Car Insurance
“The Hartford was awesome in handling my accident claim. Their representatives were very kind, helpful and compassionate. The agent that was assigned my case was very accessible and transparent with all my needs. The Hartford allowed me the opportunity to choose the Body Shop I felt most comfortable with. They had my rental car ready to go – I had to just say my name and off I went after dropping off my car to be repaired! All in all, I cannot say enough positive things about The Hartford. Considering how stressful an accident can be, they made this unnerving event a very non-stressful experience.”
“The Hartford recommended an excellent collision shop and rental car agency. The accident rattled me, but I was assisted every step of the way by wonderful people.”
“The claim process my family and I had to go through was sweatless and quick. The representative handling our claim was very efficient and very responsive. I would highly recommend Hartford Insurance to anyone looking for great car insurance!”
