Outdoor insurer unveils classic car offering

23 April 2013 Cross Country Insurance Consultants (CCIC)

Cross Country Insurance Consultants (CCIC) has unveiled its Classic Car Collectors Policy to cater for the diversified lifestyle requirements of its clients.

“As a niche insurance solutions provider with more than 10 years experience in the outdoor enthusiast market, we have decided to introduce this offering as many of our clients are passionate classic car collectors who are looking to get the insurance peace of mind for their much-loved projects,” says Ian Georgeson, CEO of CCIC.

While vehicles up to R1.5-million can be insured, consideration can be given to models of a higher value. Additionally, clients will receive a loyalty bonus that should they have two claim free years on their classic car policy, then the basic excess on claims will be waived.

In recognising that many classic car owners participate in rallies with like-minded individuals, the full comprehensive cover of the policy includes South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and Tanzania.

“The Classic Car Collectors Policy is another way we are showing our commitment to our clients and providing them with solut

ions that are tailor-made for their lifestyle,” says Georgeson.

To qualify for the policy, a client needs to be a member of a recognised classic or collector’s car club or association. The car must be 25 years and older and it must have a current valuation provided by the club or association. Additionally, an SABS-approved fire extinguisher must be kept in the vehicle at all times.
