Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between agreed value and stated value insurance coverage?

An agreed value policy—the same as a Guaranteed Value policy through Hagerty—guarantees that you will receive the full insured amount of the vehicle (with no depreciation, and including all sales taxes), in the event of a covered total loss.

In contrast, a stated value policy (sometimes called "stated amount" or "maximum limit of liability") gives the insurer the right to pay you either your vehicle's depreciated cash value amount or the cost to replace your vehicle—and they'll choose the lower of the two amounts.

How is classic car insurance different from regular car insurance?

Classic car insurance offers some key benefits compared to daily driver or "regular" insurance.

Hagerty classic car insurance offers lower premiums

We understand your classic car is a prized possession and will be driven with great caution, so premiums through Hagerty are adjusted accordingly—21% lower on average than daily driver insurance. With a daily driver insurance policy, your classic car may be rated like a regular-use vehicle, and you'll be charged as if you were driving the vehicle every day.

Hagerty classic car insurance provides Guaranteed Value

More commonly known as "agreed value" coverage, it means you tell us the value of your classic and we'll affirm that it's a fair, accurate number. Then, we guarantee that value will be paid to you in the event of a covered total loss. Regular car insurance carriers offer "actual cash value" or "stated value" coverage, which may depreciate the value of your vehicle in the event of a claim, resulting in a smaller payout than you anticipate.

Hagerty classic car insurance offers flexible usage

A car policy through Hagerty allows you flexible usage. Even if you have full coverage through a regular car insurance carrier, there may be mileage and usage restrictions to control how and when your classic is driven.
