Daily Drver Auto Insurance

I cannot find an insurance company that will give me the extra coverage needed for a daily driver. I have a really nice 69 Lemans that I drive every day. It has been a labor of love & hate (itís so complicated these days). I have done a lot of modern upgrades = a lot of $$$. Has anyone found auto insurance without all of the restrictions?

Thank you,

Dave... DSW

My '67 GTO was my first classic car, and like you I wanted the ability to drive it whenever and wherever, so I went through this back in September.

I ended up ignoring Hagerty's and such and just called up my regular auto insurance carrier. We ended up going with a stated value policy, carrying full collision/liability/fire/theft. My agent's words to me were that I could take it on a road trip that night to visit my friend 2 states away and wrap it around a tree, and it'd be covered.

I also carry a stated value policy, I drive mine quite often. Wasn't as easy as the above posted stated bit worth the hassle. I had to pay out of pocket for an appraisal. And have to have the car is pete for damage yearly. And reapraised if any change to the plan. I switched carries last year and it was the same with the new carrier. But we have a value I am happy with, same value as hagarty but pay alot more.

On the appraisals: My carrier doesn't require me to do yearly appraisals, but I was required to send in photos of the car, and if I ever want to adjust the stated value I will have to have it appraised first.

In my case, I only did a stated value for what I paid for the car, and since the price wasn't outrageous and I had just bought it 2 days prior, they were okay with that.

Thank you, Iíll call my agent about a "stated value policy".

After answering a bunch of questions with Hagerty they told me that they had nothing for me and hung up, like BANGÖ, not kidding.

SSnakeAce, what company did they set you up with?

Thanks again,

Dave

Hagerty did the same to me when I gave them an expected annual mileage of 10000 miles.

Not sure I follow on your question about 'what company did they set you up with'. It's just part of my normal insurance at this point - I get the one bill that covers both my GTO and my truck.

I have mine insured as a daily driver through Selective Ins Co of SC. No limitations. I did need an appraisal for them to agree to my stated value. They have not mentioned a re-appraisal, but if for some reason the value goes way up, I may want to have one redone. Because it is my third car, full coverage was somewhere around $350 per year. Not bad considering insurance rates in RI are very high. That ends up being only a fraction of what I pay for my other two cars (one of which worth way less than the LeMans).

Good luck and share what you are able to find.

I have a stated value policy with Classic Auto & Car insurance. They have mileage tiers, I chose 3000 miles a year and pleasure use because that's about all I get to drive it since I work away from home. Not sure how high the tiers go.

I did it all on line with them... stated value of $36,000 (since there was only a small incremental increase, I went high), $0 deductible. $365 a year. I like the $2000 spare parts coverage that comes with every policy. I did not need an appraisal. Just sent them photos.

This is from their website:

Tiered mileage plans are tailored to your needs for your antique auto insurance policy.
Unused plan mileage rolls over to your next antique car insurance policy term.
Agreed value with inflation guard protects you in case of loss and is included with our base antique car insurance policy.

FYI They won't write a policy if your car doesn't get parked in a closed and locked garage...
