Guide to Collector Car Insurance

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at

Only those with a genuine passion for classic automobiles can truly appreciate the time and effort it takes to keep these vehicles in perfect condition. A standard automobile insurance policy will not be enough protection for these works of art, as they will not take into account the nature of a collector car. If you are the owner of a classic car or are in the market to purchase such a vehicle, Gregg S. Marcus, a Long Island Insurance Executive can assist you in protecting your prized possession.

Regular car insurance policies pay their claims based on the always-changing value of the vehicle and do not take into account the investment properties of a classic car. When you are covered with classic car insurance, the claims are paid based on a value that you have agreed upon with the insurance company, prior to entering into the policy agreement.
