Finding the right cover for you
Finding the right kind of insurance can be hard, especially when you own a rare and valuable vehicle that has unique insurance needs.
There are a number of things you should consider when looking for insurance for your special vehicle.
Make sure the policy has an Agreed Value option. This allows you to include extras such as any work that has been done to restore or improve its condition, that wouldnt usually be considered in a standard market value.
The option of Salvage retention is especially important for owners of veteran, vintage or classic vehicles, as this feature allows owners to keep the wreck after an accident as a potential to rebuild or a source of parts. Please review conditions of this carefully as with some insurers there is an extra cost involved or the vehicle has to be of a certain age.
Many restorers of veteran, vintage or classic cars require cover for vehicles under restoration. Make sure your car is covered on and off the road.
Other policy features such as choice of repairer are also worth considering.
The most important thing to remember is to always read your policy documents and weigh up all the pros and cons, financial or otherwise, because only you can decide what cover is best for your car.
With SGIC Insurance we will take as much care of your classic vehicle as you do.
