How does Car Collection Insurance work?
A car collection is a source of great pride and enjoyment, but whether your cars are in storage or on the road, you still need a specialist insurance policy. That’s when car collection insurance steps in. This type of policy is designed to meet the unique needs of car collectors and owners of rare or special vehicles, whether they’re considered collectible, vintage, classic or just valuable.
You can expect an insurer to generally offer the following benefits:
Agreed value cover - you and the insurance company agree on the vehicle's value upfront and then in the event of a total loss (e.g., theft or irreparable damage), you will receive the agreed-upon value, rather than the market or actual cash value that standard insurance policies use.
Your choice of repairer - car collection insurance may offer coverage for restoration costs and spare parts, and being able to go to a familiar garage for repairs makes life easier.
There’s no limit – you can choose to insure as many vehicles as you like, providing that you make your insurer aware of the vehicles you’d like cover for.
It's important to note that the terms and conditions of car collection insurance can vary between insurance companies, and the eligibility criteria may differ depending on the value, rarity, and type of vehicles in your collection. By speaking to us you can get some guidance on finding a policy that suits you and offers adequate protection for your unique collection.
