Finding the right auto insurance coverage for your classic car in Ohio can be difficult. What coverage should you buy? Which company should you buy from?
First, and most important thing: You are far better off insuring your vehicle with a company that specializes in classic vehicles instead of insuring it with a regular auto policy!
There are several reasons why having a specialized classic car policy is better than having it insured with a regular auto policy:
The fact is, most regular auto insurance claims adjusters have little experience when it comes to damage to classic cars. Even the most seasoned claims adjusters have problems with accessing damages to classic vehicles. They're not experienced in handling claims on classic vehicles.
