I have American Collectors Insurance, but I am a new customer. Is there something you don't like about them? I insured my 964 recently through them with a $60k agreed value.

I switched from American Collectors to Grundy Worldwide. Saved a few hundred dollars.

Mr. Wolfe
American Collectors has been very good over the years at leas 8 years and no claims. Been with Grundy before they were ok too but dropped me after a claim.
Recently saw Leland was endorsed by PCA so i contacted them and waiting for their rates.

If it's good enough for Shaq, shouldn't it be good enough for us?

Tons of threads about this , you will find many replies if you search- IMO Haggerty are great and you just negotiate w them about pre determined value

Does anyone know why Grundy is a FRACTION of the premiums I was quoted from Haggerty?

I have used Grundy for years, on many different vehicles. They also have a "modern classic" policy which I used on an 01 Z06 I previously owned. Have had the 964 with them for around 5 years now. 1 claim for a windshield. No issue with getting paid. Premium did not change. Currently have 2 cars on my Grundy policy. Agreed value of $60k for 964 (they would not go higher), and $40k for my Austin Healey. ~$700 for the year for both cars.

Just curious, what kind of limitations are imposed for that? Mileage restrictions and what not?

I'll keep on researching and comparing each company and will post as soon as I pick up one. Agreed value of $350k, zero deductible, 1000 miles per year, only one driver, and no driving to work just cruises,C&C, shows, parades, drive to dinners/movies. So far the lowest rate is $3500 per year and the company is endorsed by PCA. I already priced Hagerty and American Collectors and they're nowhere close to $3500 with same coverage. I would like at least 2000 miles of driving per year.

Zero mileage restrictions. Pretty much everyone dropped the mileage restrictions years ago when, I believe it was Grundy first, dropped this limitation. The only requirement from Grundy is that the vehicles are garaged (I had to send them photos of each car, in their resting place), and proof of a standard insurance policy for a normal car/dd.

Good man!

Agreed value is the key here... Crash your 964 (or get crashed into) without it, and you'll be offered $25K.

State Farm, zero mileage constraints and had the car professionally appraised to confirm value (which was a requirement by SF). Just needs to be kept in an enclosed, locked garage.

What state do you live in? I have State Farm and there is a 2000 mile limit on my policy

I'm in Illinois. With State Farm...I'm switching to a new company this year, their restrictions and hassles are forcing my hand.

Leland, Haggarty give me similar quotes last year...roughly $1000/year based on $60k.

I'm going to keep an eye on this thread.
