Do I Qualify?

The ability to offer low premiums is a direct result of our clients being some of the most responsible drivers on the road today. In order to continue to offer these very competitive rates, we must consider several important factors in the approval process:

  • Usage - Coverage for vehicles used for hobby and/or collector car activities, and not used for regular transportation (i.e., shopping, vacation, business and to and from work).
  • Driving Records - In general, one or two minor traffic convictions or claims are acceptable. We cannot offer coverage to those who have experienced major convictions such as Impaired Driving, Careless/Dangerous Driving or Suspensions within the past 10 years. All operators must be fully licensed over 10 years. Note all household driving records maybe subject to review.
  • Primary Vehicle Insurance - Every licensed driver must maintain a primary vehicle with insurance under his or her own name.

Pelling Collector Car Insurance can provide insurance coverage for the following types of vehicles.

Antique & Classic automobiles 20 years and older
Any "stock" vehicle over 20 years old with desirable collector characteristics, used strictly for hobby and/or collector car activities.

Special Interest automobiles
Any rare or limited production, low mileage vehicle with desirable collector characteristics. Coverage is available in two categories 15 to 19 years old or 10 to 14 years old.

Modified/Street Rod automobiles 15 years and older
Any vehicle that has been changed from its original manufactured or "stock" condition. This includes changes in engine or drive train which were not available in the original manufactured year, increase in horsepower, or custom paint and/or decals. Generally, safety-related modifications such as steering, brakes or tires and wheels are not considered modifications.

We recognize that the process of restoring a collector vehicle is part of the hobby. We will offer coverage on vehicles that are being "actively" restored. Our main concern is with low valued vehicles that never become fully restored. The applicant must demonstrate that the vehicle is in active restoration by providing quality colour photographs and details of the restoration.

Coverage is underwritten by Economical Mutual Insurance Co.
