Policy Options and Benefits

Heritage offers a free agreed valuation for your vehicle. Should the worst happen and you find yourself with a total loss claim, your insurer will pay you the agreed valuation of the vehicle (less any policy excess).

A discount of up to 15% is available for members of classic car clubs. Insurers recognise customers who join a classic car club tend to be more careful owners and drivers, so reward this with a discount.

Should the worst happen and you are faced with a total loss claim, you have the option to buy back your vehicle at an agreed value rate. As long as your vehicle is not Category A/B, you can restore at your leisure.

Whether performance enhancing or adding safety features to your vehicle, we understand that adding a modification doesn’t make you a boy racer. Call us on 0121 248 9229 to discuss your classic car modifications.
