How does Hot Rod and Custom Car Insurance work?

We know that hot rods and custom cars don’t fit in the traditional car insurance world. From ‘hopped up flatheads’ to ‘blown hemis’ and ‘nailheads’, whether you have a 3 or 5 window ‘hot rod’, a ‘street rod’ or a ‘gasser’, we can help you find an insurance policy that suits you and works best for your vehicle.

Standard car insurance policies might not adequately cover the value and risks associated with hot rods and custom cars, with their unique features, high-performance modifications, and personalised designs. Therefore, specialised hot rod and custom car insurance is necessary to protect these unique vehicles properly, which typically includes:

  • Agreed value cover
  • Custom parts and equipment cover
  • Limited mileage discounts
  • UK & EU breakdown

What is and isn’t included in hot rod and custom car insurance varies depending on the insurer, so be sure to check policy definitions and terms before purchase. You can also get in touch with us, and we’d be happy to give you some insight into what you could get from your hot rod and custom car insurance.
