insurance blues

I have used Amica for years and had a good results. They have always been quick to respond to claims. With my older cars (currently a 69 Firebird and 64 Sportwagon) they often ask for a photo to make sure it is in good shape and not a highway liablity. I have received a dividend check every year to boot. They even insured a couple of Corvairs I had-Take that Ralph Nader. Just my 2 cents

I've had JC Taylor for many years, and on several cars. No claims (fortunately), but I chose them based on recommendations from friends that did have claims.<P>Only real complaint I have is the billing. Seems to be done the old-fashioned way--by hand, and slowly! After any revisions/adjustments to my policy, it has taken months for the billing to catch up. <P>When I call up, they say "No problem, just ignore it. You'll get an updated bill later." Frankly, it's stressful and annoying, and as a result I'm planning to move to another company.

New York State is the insurance Lobbyist capitol of the world. Insurance rates are way out of line here. Hagerty gave me a rate that was 25% of what I pay at State Farm. Now I gotta shop for bike insurance. shocked.gif" border="0

I use Haggerty. I had a disaster a few years ago and they handled it very well.<P>Unfornately my car was totaled. They send an adjuster out within a few days, and once I faxed them a copy of the title, I had a check for the full value of my car witin a week. No arguments, and they did NOT raise my rates.<P>A++++<P>I did use JC Taylor years back, but I changed besause they keep sending the bills to the garage where I stored my cars, instead of my house!<P>Scott Mich<BR>Assistant Director<BR>Chicagoland Chapter<P>1955 -76C<BR>1959 Olds SS-88

Get a GOOD INDEPENDENT INSURANCE AGENT that represents SEVERAL insurance companies, and let him do the shopping for you. Until you stop using your collector cars for everyday transportation and have another vehicle for this type of use, you will not be able to use collector car insurance, and enjoy their very low rates. I use Grundy for my collector cars, they also insure the BCA. rolleyes.gif" border="0
