When you are looking for a classic car insurance quote because you are either in the process of buying a classic car or are shopping around for cover because your existing policy is coming up to its renewal date why go to the trouble of getting more than one quote? After all, does that not take longer to do than if you were getting just the one quote?
Well, in answer to the second question, if you were to use the likes of a price comparison website, it should not take any longer to get a number of quotes from different providers rather than just getting the one quote by perhaps going direct to an insurer. This is because you will only have to key in the requested information once.
Returning to the main question, it should be borne in mind that classic car insurance companies are likely to provide different prices for the cost of such cover and there may also be slight variances in the cover offered including the various optional extras that are sometimes available. Therefore, surely you would agree that it would be a prudent course of action to get a number of quotes so that you can compare the premium amounts and also the cover provided.
In order to do so, you would no doubt want to compare like with like. For instance, if you want to cover your classic car to drive up to 5,000 miles per annum and feel that you need car breakdown cover you would wish both quotes to include these features/benefits so that you can see if there is any difference in the price.
Whilst there is no guarantee, if one insurer were cheaper than another but, for whatever reason, you preferred to take out the cover with the more expensive insurer, you may be able to persuade the insurance company that you would rather arrange your classic car insurance with to match or better the cheaper quote. It is, after all, a very competitive market place.
So, it may be a good idea to get more than one classic car insurance quote.
