Fort Myers, Florida Auto Insurance Agency offers various insurance policies for antique and classic vehicles.

Fort Myers, FL, May 21, 2014 --( Ft. Myers, Florida based auto insurance agency, Gulf Coast Educators Insurance, now offers auto coverage for classic and antique cars. This is the newest auto coverage option for this Southwest Florida car insurance agency.

Gulf Coast Educators Insurance in Ft. Myers will educate consumers on how to determine if their car qualifies for this type of auto insurance policy. If car owners own a collectible vehicle, than they may qualify for either classic or antique car insurance. Classic cars and antique cars are similar, but have a few differences. “Gulf Coast Educators Insurance is excited to offer this new type of insurance policy for classic car enthusiasts and we understand the confusion that stems from deciphering how a vehicle can qualify for this specialty auto insurance coverage,” states Ron DeFreitas owner/operator of Gulf Coast Educators Insurance.

Most states define a classic automobile as a motor vehicle twenty or more years old, which has been maintained in or restored to a condition, and is substantially in conformity with manufacturer specifications and appearance. An antique automobile is a classic motor vehicle that is 25 or more years old.

The car insurance agents at Gulf Coast Educators Insurance also advise there are other considerations when qualifying for classic car eligibility. An antique or classic car must be used on a very limited basis, such as exhibitions, club activities, and parades or similar events. Additionally, the vehicle owner must have restored, maintained, or preserved the antique or classic car.

DeFreitas adds, “Whether a classic car owner restored their vehicle or bought it already restored, Gulf Coast Educators Insurance offers the right insurance coverage for consumers.”

This newly offered classic car insurance policy has the following coverage options available: Liability, Medical Payments/No Fault, Comprehensive, Collision, Uninsured Motor Vehicle/Underinsured Motor Vehicle, Emergency Road Service, Death, Dismemberment and Loss of Sight, and Loss of Earnings.
