Collector Car Insurance

We offer several options to insure your collector car:

ICBC Collector Vehicle Program: for cars & trucks over 25 years old and driven for pleasure purposes only, ICBC offers low rates.  You must also have a non-collector car to qualify. Call or email us for more information.

Hagerty Classic Car Insurance: this leader in the collector car insurance field offers great protection and multiple options to insure your car. Call or email us for more details.

 


 Intact private automobile insurance

As an alternative to ICBC’s optional coverage (Excess Liability, Collision & Comprehensive) the Intact Insurance Company offers insurance packages for your car. The advantage of this plan is lower premiums in many cases. The disadvantage is a more detailed application when applying, and dealing with two insurers in some claim situations.

For more information or to apply, please complete the Intact Auto questionnaire in the Forms section of this website.
