I know one guy who said Geico didn't want to touch his R32 GTS-T. I paid State Farm 400ish for 6 months on my Nismo R32 but I also have other cars and my house insured with them. From what I hear State Farm is the easiest to work with but of course YMMV depending on your state.I'm about to do some shopping before I buy my Skyline at auction.
So far Progressive wants $1,960 for 6 months of coverage.
I'm looking at GEICO and State Farm next.
Safeco and Pemco flat out said no.
I thought about collector car insurance for my R32 but I didn't have much luck with them for my R35 - besides the mileage restriction and needing a less than 5 year old car as a primary (the latter not an issue for me since I have an FR-S for a DD, the former maybe since I like road trips) they didn't want to touch my R35 after finding out it had 800+whp. They told me they don't insure modified cars with that much power and referred me to Chubb lol.If you are not using the car as a daily you guys should be using Hagerty, Grundy, American Collector for insurance.
I know this because I work in insurance.
These companies will put restrictions on like 5k miles/year, garaged, must have primary vehicle.
But you get appraised or agreed value and they handle muscle cars/exotics.
If your Skyline is wrecked or stolen State Farm and the regular carriers are not gonna know what to do with your Skyline and how to value it or approve costs for getting parts from Japan.
My old 93 Corvette ZR1 was like $500/year for $25-30k in agreed coverage.
You usually send them a bunch of photos or they send someone out to inspect and document your car.
Just a thought.
I just got with USAA and they got me at 38bucks/mo for full coverage/roadside/glass protection/rental car for 17-18k miles a year.If you can get USAA...I pay $80 a month.
I didn't have to do anything special in my case. I just honestly asked my agent if it was possible to insure an imported car with my policy and they said yes as long as I provided them with the sales invoice to show the purchase price and the documentation to show it was titled in the US and cleared by customs.Question for those that have State Farm.... How did you get them to insure a R32 Skyline? I have been with State Farm for 26 years now, home, many cars, etc, and they flat out said NO.
At first Progressive said no too, but with a little creative talking I was finally able to get my R32 insured. Not to bad..... $600 for 5 months, about the same as my 2013 Mustang GT.
Any help would be great, I would love to get the car under State Farm when my policy expires with Progressive.
Also I live in CA.....
For State Farm, you'll want to do this, plus get your car valued. They'll do stated value, but will only pay out the stated value amount if it's been properly confirmed through valuation.I didn't have to do anything special in my case. I just honestly asked my agent if it was possible to insure an imported car with my policy and they said yes as long as I provided them with the sales invoice to show the purchase price and the documentation to show it was titled in the US and cleared by customs.
Did your agent check with their underwriting department? Some agents will say no without checking first. If underwriting says no as well then I've no clue what else you can do - maybe it's a state thing and they won't do it for Cali despite being okay with it in other states.
