Default Antique Insurance

I have just received a notice from Nationwide that they will no longer cover my Ford even though I have home owners and other vehicles with them. Seems they have partnered with Hagerty and will offer separate coverage if a person wants. Many other companies out there, just wondering who has what companies for an average ?

Sounds like Nationwide ain't on your side.

I have Grundy, which in Connecticut goes through Philadelphia Indemnity.

Hagerty Insurance with a stated amount policy is what I had. Cheap too.

I hope you mean "Agreed Value" not "Stated Value". There is a difference.

I have Haggerty, one claim, I was told by my agent not to bother him, LOL, just take it to the body shop and get an estimate and an adjuster will be out to look at my car in 2 days, he was and offered me a check or the option to take it to a body shop, I do my own work so I took the check, less than a week from the accident to settlement, I cant think of any better service from any insurer

If you only drive your car occasionally there is a policy available from American Family that is quite reasonable. We have both our auto & home policies with them also I don't know if you need other vehicles or home insured with them to get the coverage or not.

I have Hagerty on 7 cars. Had one weird claim and they were great. All in all they seem to be a very customer oriented company. Quickly respond to both phone and emails. They offer road service and I have used that also.

Had to drop AAA in 2002. Ran out of diesel (stupid) on our first motorhome trip and they
REFUSED to bring me fuel. Said they would tow it in. 40 ft diesel pusher, no way. We were in Ventura. I unhooked the tow and drove to pick up fuel. I continue to badmouth them every chance I get.

I have USAA for the house and modern vehicles. I use both Hagerty and Grundy, both GREAT companies. No complaints at all. Highly recommend either one or both

Any young person with insurance? I am 20, and need to do this soon. I have a feeling that doing so in MA will be near impossible.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Seems like Grundy and Hagerty are most peoples choice. Hagerty said I would get a quote in the mail within five days so will see what they offer. I think I did have Grundy of my "A" roadster one time and as I remember they were a good company too.
