Much like your vehicle, Berkley Classics has withstood the test of time, having insured collector vehicles for more than 40 years. We protect more than 50,000 vehicles annually and take great pride in offering insureds peace of mind through personalized service, flexible insurance solutions and advancing technology.

Service To Deliver Answers Quickly and Easily

  • Our passionate staff personally handles approximately 40,000 calls annually, delivering prompt, friendly service. 99% of calls are returned the same day.
  • On average, our team responds to new business submissions within 24 hours of receipt of a completed application.
  • We have a dedicated team of professionals whose first priority is you. Many of our staff members own collector vehicles themselves and received specialized training in restoration practices and appraisals. Our underwriters average approximately 10 years of experience working with collector vehicles and more in the insurance industry.
  • We offer binding authority to our agents so you can take speed into your own hands.

Flexible Insurance Solutions That Fit You

  • We insure a wide range of vehicles from sports cars and rare exotic cars to antique vehicles including cars, trucks, motorcycles and snowmobiles. Unlike some carriers, we don’t impose annual mileage limits on collector vehicles older than 20 years.
  • We offer 9 deductible options from $0 to $10,000 and many coverage options (including towing, trip interruption and zero deductible glass) to customize insurance for your individual needs and price point.
  • Car club member discounts without insurance membership fees help keep premiums competitive and complimentary features like spare parts coverage add value.
  • Insureds are billed directly and may choose from a variety of installment plans and payment methods to make paying bills more affordable, convenient and faster.

Advancing Technology To Make Your Life Easier

  • We are investing heavily in technology to increase the flexibility of our quoting engine which accommodates a broader spectrum of insured attributes.
  • It takes as little as one minute to get an estimate after completing as few as 10 fields.
  • We also offer electronic policy delivery, an online portal for account management and agency download for daily paperless data sharing.

“This year marks my 15th year with Berkley Classics. Unfortunately, my first claim came only four months after the start of our relationship. That’s when Berkley Classics was put to the test and their worth was confirmed with flying colors. Since then, I’ve added a few more cars to my collection which now consists of three 1965 Superformance 427 Cobras, a 1966 Superformance GT-40 and a 1964 Ford Fairlane 427 Thunderbolt. The entire collection is covered by Berkley and each vehicle is driven with the confidence and security I need to fully enjoy the experience.”

“With more than 45 years in insurance and a passion of my own for collector cars, I always put myself in my client’s shoes to make sure they are treated the way I want to be treated, especially in the event of a claim. I insure my personal collector vehicles with Berkley Classics because that’s who I trust. I recommend Berkley Classics to my customers because they make doing business easy. We live in a ‘now’ world and they make it simple to get a quote when you need it. Plus, everyone I’ve dealt with has been extremely cooperative and friendly.”

“As a purveyor, collector and restorer of all things motorized on two wheels, I currently have a collection of 38 vintage bikes which Berkley Classics has insured for more than 16 years. After doing my due diligence to find an insurance company that will work with me on eclectic, one-off and prototype motorcycles, I chose Berkley. What I find most accommodating is their hospitable Midwest attitude, flexibility in working with my unique needs and, last but not least, fair pricing. Plus, making policy changes is simple and takes only a matter of minutes. I never looked back after doing business with Berkley. Let your friends know that this is the best one stop shop for all your rolling stock. After all, we are only temporary proprietors of this art form until it’s handed down to the next generation to continue its preservation. I trust Berkley will be there for them also.”
