It’s so easy to love a bug. Check out our new value guide

Last July we told you about a new way we’re engaging with members over our shared love of cars: a resource we call the Hagerty Make/Model Price Guide. Our newest guide is all about the VW Beetle. At a time when cars were being built for power and pride, the Beetle made a huge statement by being small and driving slow. And that’s where the fun began.

Last July we told you about a new way we’re engaging with members over our shared love of cars: a resource we call the Hagerty Make/Model Price Guide. Our newest guide is all about the VW Beetle. At a time when cars were being built for power and pride, the Beetle made a huge statement by being small and driving slow. And that’s where the fun began.

Our valuebug-value guides were made using the Hagerty Valuation Tools®. It’s easy for you and members to use these tools to help when quoting Nationwide/Hagerty insurance and to keep track of how values change over time. Use it to engage and retain classic-owning members.

Auto Insurance Tips for the Collector Car Market

Take advantage of the collector car market that’s killing it

In the midst of the fall season, the “upper middle” market (cars valued between $250,000 and a million) continues its long slowdown. This year, only six of the 10 upper-middle vehicles Hagerty® inspected at public auctions sold, down from eight out of 10 in 2015. At this year’s Amelia Island’s Concours d’Elegance, 60% of vehicles were auctioned for less than current Hagerty Price Guide values.

But there’s another market that’s killing it right now: entry-level collector vehicles (valued at $50,000 or less). Nearly 85% of entry-level vehicles Hagerty inspected at public …

But there’s another market that’s killing it right now: entry-level collector vehicles (valued at $50,000 or less). Nearly 85% of entry-level vehicles Hagerty inspected at public auctions sold this year, up from 75% two years ago, while only 20% of these vehicles sold for less than current Hagerty Price Guide values.

This translates to a huge opportunity for agents. Many members own “fun” cars (including cars from the ’80s, ’90s and 2000s) in addition to their daily drivers, most of which are insured on a standard auto policy. Protect the cars they love properly by placing them where they belong – on a collector car policy – and you’ll build loyalty and retention.

You know, things like: don’t play any pranks on Carrie, never stay at The Shining‘s Overlook Hotel (“Here’s Johnny!”), and for goodness’ sake, tread lightly when dealing with a 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine.

King takes the classic tale of boy meets girl to frightening heights when a geeky teenager named Arnie falls head over heels in love with a red Plymouth Fury with a sketchy past. Christine falls hard for Arnie, too, which would be roses if it weren’t for one tiny detail: the car is a killing machine with a long memory and a short fuse. Moral of the story: Never underestimate the fury of a Fury that just… won’t… die.

As we hand out Halloween candy to all the miniature ghosts and goblins out there, here’s a little something for the big kids – 10 things you may not know about the original Christine movie.

In the case of a catastrophic financial event, Personal Umbrella Liability Insurance could be the best line of defense you’ll ever have.

Sometimes in life things just go wrong. Let’s say that you get into a terrible car accident, you’re hurt, the other person is hurt, and on top of that, they decide to sue you. Your basic insurance policy might not cover all of the damages, the medical expenses, and the legal costs. That’s where personal umbrella liability insurance becomes important.

A personal umbrella liability insurance is a customized additional policy that extends the protection of your basic insurance policies to help when a true financial crisis arises. Additionally, it may cover situations that aren’t covered at all by your basic insurance policy. Umbrella policies are meant to be flexible and match your lifestyle. You may need much more protection, depending on where you live, what you do for work, the size of your family, your hobbies, and the vehicles you drive, whether they are automobiles, boats, ATVs, or an RV. However, your current insurance policy may already provide you with a comfortable amount of coverage.  Either way, it is always a good idea to review your policy and ensure that you will be protected in the case of intense financial liability.

We at Insurance Town and Country make it our mission to see that our clients and their families are provided with ample protection at an affordable rate.  You can learn more about our Personal Umbrella Liability Insurance, click here. If you have recently experienced a change in lifestyle or just want to make sure that there aren’t gaps in your insurance coverage, give us a call at 303-388-7216, shoot us an email at contact@insurancedenver.net, or request a quote online.
