How does classic car insurance work?

Your car may be more than 25 years old, but there is sentimental value to it that prevents you from selling it to the highest bidder. One of the best ways to secure your investment is to purchase classic auto insurance in Beaverton, OR from W.B. Adams Company. 

Car values work differently with classic autos.

Unlike the average vehicle that loses value when you drive it off the lot, classic cars increase in value over time. One of the main reasons a classic auto appreciates with time is because of the vehicle owner’s dedication to preserving the originality of the car. The authenticity of a classic car, then, becomes its greatest asset. 

Standard auto insurance is not good enough.

A standard auto insurance policy follows the concept of automobiles depreciating with time. Thus, a classic car with all of its original components would not be valued as much because it is more than 25 years old. Standard auto insurance policies do not factor in authenticity. It will also not cover original replacement parts for the car.

How does classic auto insurance work?

Classic auto insurance works so that the actual value of your vehicle is included in the policy. The provider typically works with you to determine how much your car is worth, so, in the unfortunate instance of destruction, you are given significantly more than what a standard auto insurance policy would pay. 

Classic auto insurance depends on several factors, which include:

  • The age of the vehicle
  • How often you plan to drive the car
  • How much you have invested in the vehicle

It is important to note that most classic auto insurance plans have driving restrictions that prevent you from making your classic car a daily commuter option. It is best to pursue this type of policy if you have a second vehicle to drive.
