I was with Grundy Insurance starting in 1974. They insured our Packard. When the car was totaled by an uninsured motorist they went above and beyond including medical payments to both my wife and l. Years latter, around 2008, had a small claim with the on our 280SL. No problem. But the most impressive claim was on my Ď66 GT350. When the rear back window shattered. I did some research to find a replacement aftermarket to turn in a claim. The adjuster reminded me that it was better to go with a different brand and have the exact codes on the glass, especially for this car.Gave me a supplier even thou it was almost twice as much. Customer service is what itís all about!!

I've had Heacock for 5 years. Never filed a claim, but when Doug (shlby66) told me how well they handled his claim, I figured that I can't do better. Since SAAC now also partners with Hagerty I figured that I would get a quote as my policy renewed July 1st. Priced same agreed value and mileage for modified 68 GT350 and 2009 Bullitt. Hagerty was about 250% MORE per year than Heacock!

I would definitely shop around. Different cars, different driving records, locations, etc. will make a difference. Good luck!

My insurance is due on July 1st so I decided to check around. I called Heacock(American Modern) and got a quote of 725.00 including the Michigan insurance BS we have to pay for. My Hagerty renewal is over 1500.00. Who has Heacock and how is their service. Hagerty has always been great but come on, 725 V 1500?  I plan on switching over ASAP even before my Hagerty policy expires on that difference.  Gary

Shreed had Hagerty for 20 plus years

When I checked rates, I was surprised at how high they are

Do you put driving mileage limits on your coverage? I can check my policy amounts on all cars when I get to office but even my $350,000 coverage isn't $1,500 with State Farm. I think 2,000 mile driving limit a year.

I have been with Heacock for years. Have 8 cars with them and had 2 claims one minor one kinda Major both excellent claim service.
Had a bent custom rim and adjuster came out wrote up new wheel, tire and balance on the spot. Other one my 2004 Mach 1 rear seat caught on fire from hole on top of muffler! After 2 fire extinguishers and hose fire was put out and interior was a mess. That was during the height of Covid so adjuster called said send pictures and parts list with prices. Stroked a check with out seeing the car.

Only bad thing I can say about Heacock is they would not insure my 1974 Ford C800 Firetruck

Maybe they will reconsider now.  Tell them you could have put out your own fire.

I put a 1K limit as I don't drive either one a thousand miles a year.
