Nationwide Teams Up With Hagerty
Nationwide Insurance agents to sell Nationwide and Hagerty classic car insurance policy
Columbus, Ohio - Today, Nationwide Insurance announced a new partnership with Hagerty, the global leader in classic car insurance. The partnership allows Nationwide Insurance agents to provide a highly competitive Nationwide and Hagerty classic car insurance product through Nationwide’s network of 3,600 exclusive agencies and licensed sales staff.
“Our main focus at Nationwide is to provide the best insurance protection for the things our members are passionate about,” said Kurt Ely, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Nationwide Insurance. “Our friends at Hagerty know classic car insurance better than anyone else, but more importantly, they share the same commitment to their customers as we do. Those factors made the partnership a natural fit.”
Nationwide Classic Car Insurance can cover:
- Antique and vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles
- Modified vehicles
- Vehicles under restoration
- Trailers, military vehicles and tractors
“There is a real emotional attachment associated with owning a collectible vehicle. We realize these owners are very particular when it comes to taking care of their prized classics but also really enjoy driving them,” said McKeel Hagerty, President and CEO of Hagerty. “This partnership allows Nationwide customers with collector vehicles to combine the benefits of our Guaranteed Value™ policy with the convenience of dealing directly with the same agent who handles their other insurance needs.”
In addition to the full portfolio of insurance and financial services products Nationwide members already enjoy, customers purchasing Nationwide Classic Car Insurance will have access to the same classic car expertise and exclusive benefits other Hagerty customers receive – including an in-house claims team trained in classic vehicle repair, flatbed roadside assistance, the Hagerty Price Guide and valuation expertise and a subscription to Hagerty Classic Car magazine.
For a Nationwide Classic Car Insurance quote, consumers should contact their local Nationwide agent, or call 1-877-669-6877.
