It’s more than collectible, it’s irreplaceable

At Hagerty, we know your collector vehicle is filled with years of love, work, memories and stories that can’t be replaced. That’s why if the worst happens—a total loss—we help you keep your car and still receive your full Guaranteed Value*.

Just check out a few recent client stories:

“My ’76 Corvette was totaled after being smoke damaged... I put a lot of sweat and blood into this (car). What’s more, I knew I could do the repairs myself — and because I had Cherished Salvage coverage, I was able to keep the car and get to work.”


“Early F150s loaded with all the options are rare, and I’d finally found one. When it was hit, I knew it was too invaluable to give up. Cherished Salvage allowed me to keep the truck, which I lovingly donated to a friend to rebuild.”
