When it’s irreplaceable, there’s Cherished Salvage

You know all about Cherished Salvage by now – it’s a favorite policy add-on among collector car enthusiasts. After a covered total loss, clients with a Cherished Salvage policy endorsement through Hagerty can retain their special vehicle and still receive its full Guaranteed Value(TM)*.

Cherished Salvage is a no-brainer coverage for any enthusiast vehicle — but especially for those that feel as much like a family heirloom as a collector car:

  • Early-era Corvettes still driven, loved, and passed down from generation to generation.
  • Retired farm trucks like Ford F150s the kids and grandkids love to show off at summer parades.
  • 60s-era Mustangs always featured in the annual family portrait.
  • Any rare or unique collector vehicle with meaningful value to your client.

You can learn even more about Cherished Salvage, or head straight to the Hagerty Broker Business Center to add this coverage to your new client quotes and existing policies.
