Insurance on Bentley? WOW!!!

Just about to pull the trigger on a 2007 GT Diamond Series.

I am having trouble finding anyone who will insure the car.

Most companies are saying that they will not insure anything over $150,000.

Any ideas on who will?

I have called Nationwide, Wawanessa, Geico etc.

Also what are most people paying?

Thanks,

Ice

I heard progressive deals with more 'high risk' cars and drivers.

I think many mentioned using StateFarm for high end cars and getting good prices

I know state farm does. I'm not sure about the rates but I know clients of mine have used state farm for all sorts of exotics and high risk cars -- Bentley's, Astons, Ferrari's and Lambo's, etc.

State Farm - I've insured my Bentley, Gallardo and other cars with them and never had problems and never paid more than about $120/month for each car. I wouldn't go through a specialty company.

Called Geico they wouldn't touch it!!!

I'm glad they helped you out but for me I'm SOL with them.

And yes it is complete nonsense not to be able to get coverage from alot of companies due to the fact that the car is over $150,000.

I will persevere tho. I will get Coverage on that car!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Yes the car is an 07 Diamond Series with 5200 Miles. Black on Black with Red Leather stitching and Red crest's on all seats and inside the doors as well.. Black piano veneer dash. Diamond series 20" wheels. Was able to get a real good deal on it through a wholesaler friend on mine who handles Lambo's. Ferrari's and Bentley's.

I will post pictures when I get the car.

Then hit the Mod train

I have 4 vehicles with State Farm and 3 are high end. Very reasonable rates.

Your age could ahve something to do with the situation. It's the way insurance companies work.

Never a problem with insurance but you must have a clean driving record, high FICO, and own some real estate.
