Guys,
If any of you are thinking about switching to Hagerty for your classic car insurance I can recommend them whole heartedly!
Today my '65 SS broke a rocker stud 20 miles from home. I called Hagerty, they had a very qualified driver and a rollback at my location in about one hour. Delivered to my driveway for $10, and this will not effect my rate. Great company! Bill

Glad to hear that - as I've been with Hagerty for three years now.
Haven't needed them yet.

Question --> Is road service included with your insurance? Or an option?
Thanks

There is an option that is extra that includes 50 miles of free towing. As I recall it's called 'Hagerty plus'. They only use flat beds w/cloth straps.

I had insurance from Condon-Skelly (Metropolitan) for 30 years and never had a claim. Recently, I changed to State Farm to consolidate my policies. I saved about $75 per year and have the same coverage as my other vehicles. I call the wrecker of my choice and send my agent a copy of the tow bill and get a check in just a few days. Very fair, and I deal with my normal agent.

Guys,
Hagerty Plus is an extra $35 a year. For me the big draw is an "agreed Value" policy as opposed to "Stated Value". Bill

Bill, my State Farm policy is also agreed value and the towing-assistance was no cost. My value agreed at 28,000 and is $212 per year. As I remember, my old Condon-Skelly was $194 and they wanted to raise it to $265 or so. That's when I jumped ship. Never had a claim with either insurer and no accidents, ever.

Pretty sure I called Condon-Skelly when I wanted to insure my 66. I told the person I was talking to that the engine was blueprinted, and he said they wouldn't insure it because the engine was modified?????????? I then called Hagerty and the agent there laughed after I told him what the other agent had said and he stated-"that's stock", the car has been insured with Hagerty ever since!
BTW-Heck of a lot cheaper than Nationwide who I previously had it insured with!

My engine is highly modified and was insured by Condon-Skelly. I posted my rates, but what rates do you all pay for coverage (if you don't mind)? I understand that it'll vary with location.

The only stipulations I had or have is the vehicle must be garaged and no daily driving to and from work.

$238 yr. without the plus, insured value of $35k.
I don't know who I talked to when I inquired about insuring it with Condon-Skelly, but when he told me that a blueprinted motor was a modified motor and that they wouldn't insure it----well you can imagine what I was thinking!
As stated, Hagerty had no problem when I mentioned the blueprinted motor, and the guy I talked to was very pleasant and knowledgeable, thus they get my yearly premium!
Just thinking, maybe should bump the value up a bit!

I tried to go with Hagerty’s with an agreed value,after I told them I had air ride installed on my car they wanted me to have a $1400 deductible! Asked why they said because all the low riders like to steal cars with air ride??I went with Grundy and It was almost a hundred dollars a year cheaper.they also pay for towing of my choice..glad I never had Hagerty.I am 64 and always had State Farm and never had a claim. But they wouldn’t do an agreed value..

I've been using State Farm agreed value for years. For $12,000 I had been paying $48 and it recently increased to $56. When the restoration is done in a few months I'm obviously going to have to increase the value.

I had been wondering if this sort of arrangement with SF was good, or if I needed to switch to a specialist like Hagerty. Good to hear that SF has been working for those of you that needed it.

Big Wrench, I have State Farm insurance with agreed/declared value on my 65SS Impala. You need a different agent!

redflags, I had Condon-Skelly on the same car for over 25 years. They kind of went downhill since Metropolitan began underwriting their policies.

State Farm for everything in my house except my Impala. Hagerty for that. $441 for Hagerty Plus with agreed value of $48,000. Can't recall deductible; maybe $500 like my other cars. Has unlimited tow. Someone mentioned 50 miles, but I thought it was 15 miles. Perhaps I misheard.
