I have Hagerty and think they are expensive but their claims department is great-if you need them. No hassles. Today is the first day of my 1 year renewal. I wanted to get others but no call backs after leaving info on one, Emailing another with no response. Jumping through hoops on websites for info they wanted I didn't have readily available it didn't pan out but I'm searching even with my renewal.

Shop around. Some of the suggestions will not be acceptable if you do.

I have had Hagerty for ever. I did shop them with others and found Hagerty to be competitive with the others. Never had a claim so I dont know how that that would end up. So far so good.

Hagerty...7 cars...no claims...12 or so years and no issues to date...They will insure a car while it is being restored and the parts... :)

Insurance companies love to take money, hate to pay money. But I use State Farm. They partner with Hagerty to leverage for lower rates (they claim) and I put 2,000 mile year limit on cars. They have never questioned my valuations. One year I had four claims due to massive storm damage and they settled at Classic values. If you have house or any other coverage discounts kick in. I haven't gotten a competing quote in a few years so premiums might be out of line but seem reasonable.

I had 3 claims (really weird happenings on 2 of them in my garage) and the last one my hood molding went aero on a freeway doing 80. Ironically while the claims adjuster was writing an estimate there was a NOS hood molding for BIN 1K on Ebay. 2 days later I called the adjuster and asked as the auction was ending. He said "buy it" as Hagerty was giving me that much for the hood molding in the claim.
