Time to check your in­sur­ance

New Zealand Classic Car - - News -

As most, if not all, clas­sics are ap­pre­ci­at­ing as­sets, it’s im­por­tant to re­view your in­sur­ance cover on a reg­u­lar ba­sis to make sure that you are ad­e­quately pro­tected. This comes as ve­hi­cle numbers are in­creas­ing on our roads, con­ges­tion con­tin­ues to worsen, and the fre­quency of crashes trends steadily up­wards.

Colin from Pro­tecta In­sur­ance told us, “A num­ber of our pol­i­cy­hold­ers have been hit by unin­sured third par­ties [re­cently], which high­lights the need to have your own car cov­ered even if you aren’t at fault for the ac­ci­dent. That way, your car is re­paired im­me­di­ately, and it is up to the in­sur­ance com­pany to re­cover the costs of the re­pair from the unin­sured party, which can of­ten take sev­eral years to pay off the debt.”

If you don’t al­ready have in­sur­ance for your clas­sic ve­hi­cle, it’s worth get­ting a quote — as own­ers, driv­ers, and en­thu­si­asts too, the team un­der­stands what clas­sic car own­ers want from their in­surer. Call them to­day on 0800 776 832, or visit pro­tec­tain­sur­ance.co.nz.
