Cash or Stated Value

The cash value of a vehicle is essentially the market value with standard depreciation. Companies use many different ways to figure out a fair cash value including averaging recent sell transactions for similar vehicles and Kelly Blue Book values.

You don’t want a cash value on your classic auto!!!

What you are looking for is a stated value policy! That is a policy that states in the event of a total loss of your vehicle in a collision or other than collision loss the insurance company will pay you a settlement based on the stated value on your policy. For example your vehicle had a stated value of $20,000 and the vehicle was stolen the company would pay you $20,000 minus any applicable deductible.

Determining the “stated value” of your vehicle is best done with a professional appraisal of your vehicle.

Not only is it better coverage but a stated value policy might save you money

Most classic autos are being driven on a part-time basis and aren’t regular commute vehicles. By listing a vehicle as a classic auto, with stated value, you can take advantage of company discounts for part-time vehicles.

If you have another vehicle for your regular commute you may qualify for a discount.
