Classic car insurance differs from standard car insurance in several ways. It is less expensive than standard insurance, has specific feature requirements and may not be the best option for classic cars that are still in daily use. The value of the car, age of the owner, miles driven, housing and age of the car are all criteria that need to be met. Collector vehicles get such low rates of insurance because they are rarely driven, are exceptionally well maintained and usually increase in value over time.
If you have a classic car, one that was manufactured between 1973 and 15 years ago, you may be eligible for classic car insurance. This is a much better option than putting your classic car on your regular auto insurance policy. You can protect the investment of a classic car and have lower premiums.
The criteria that must be met may vary from company to company, but they will all want to know the age of the driver, the mileage on the car, how the car is housed when it is not in use and the age of the vehicle. There are specialized classic car insurance companies that will cover drivers 21 years or older, but most companies require the driver to be over 25 years. If you car is well protected from thieves or weather, it has a better chance of getting lower premiums.
