Are there classic car insurers that offer agreed write off value policies?

I have a 1999 Saab Viggen in good condition with 80,000 miles on it. Is there an insurer that will protect its write off value as it is rare?

Yes, you need to get an agreed market value policy. It helps if you have a specialist valuation report done by an independent engineer. This assists insurers in providing an agreed value insurance policy. You may find a few classic car insurers who do not require a report, but I always suggest having one as we fully document the condition of your vehicle, and virtually eliminates problems with the insurer in the future as everything is transparent and pre-agreed.
