Who needs it
Any car enthusiast that wants the most complete insurance protection for their prized vehicles. LoPriore Insurance Agency partners with insurance companies that understand classic cars and auto collections best.
The LoPriore Insurance Agency Classic Car Insurance Program includes the following coverages:
High-value car coverage: whether it’s a historic automobile or a newer exotic car, our agency can offer high limits of coverage. Agreed Value Coverage, specially designed for collector vehicles, pays the full-insured amount in the event of a total loss and reflects the insured value of the car. For partial losses it includes diminution in value as a result of the loss.
Flexible Usage: although most collector cars are maintained primarily for use in exhibitions, club activities, parades and other functions of public interest, and while insurance carriers reduced rates reflect this limited use, there is no specific mileage restriction on most policies.
Repair shop of choice: policyholders are free to use any restorer they choose or even do the work themselves with no reduction in loss settlement. However, by using insurance carriers pre-screened quality repair shops, policyholders receive a guarantee for all repair work performed.
High optional liability limits: coverage includes protection from legal actions for up to $1 million, more than most other insurance offers. For collections where there are more cars than drivers, blanket liability coverage is available to avoid multiple premium charges.
“For display only” coverage: insurance companies also offer specially priced coverage for large car collections that are primarily “for display” (garaged and/or exhibited) and driven only to maintain the vehicle.
