    Default Insurance Quote

    I did a search but all I could find was threads on claims, not policy's. What are you guys paying for insurance for your Viper's? Full coverage? 500$ deductible? I have a 50 year old friend with a Black Mamba who is paying 450$ every 6 months which is amazingly cheap. I just called my insurance company for a quote on a Copperhead and they said it would be 3800$ for 6 months!!! That sounds incredibly high and a ripoff...any input would help. I am a 28 year old single guy in the military. Thanks.

    $3800 for 6 months isn't high or a ripoff


    .....Its THE biggest screwjob I've ever heard of. Unless you have more DUI's than your average moviestar, go somewhere else....quickly

    I assume with the agree value you're restricted on mileage every year. If so, how many miles are you allowed per year with Grundy?

    You can PM this guy from your area - Axtellboy
    Maybe he can give you some advice. He has a thread in the KC region section but since you are an enthusiast you can only read it and not post.
    Hope this helps you!

    Thanks for all the info so far. I have since shopped around a bit with Progressive, Geico, and State Farm. I got quotes between 1600-1900 for 6 months. Still high but less than half of the one quote. I am shopping now because I have been deployed for over a year and have not needed insurance. I am establishing insurance now (just a blanket liability policy) so that a year from now when I return to the states (and buy my first viper) I will have insurance already established.

    97gtsmonster- Unfortunately, the 3800$ quote was from USAA!!

    I am a non citizen and drive on a foreign license.
    Progressive were stinging me for 5000/year
    Changed to AIG and got the same coverage for 2400/year.
    Very hard to get coverage on a foreign license.

    I pay $1,180 per year roughly $100.00 a month for full coverage on a 2005 GenIII through All State. I thought that was a great deal.

    No... No... Got plenty of scratch.

    But some pictures of single attractive female friends for me and Chad to discuss would be great. I'll do our bio for you to show them:

    Dave - single white male
    Chad - single white male
    Dave - primary interest is women and Vipers
    Chad - primary interest is Hooters women and Vipers

    Pretty much the complete packages.

    I only get like 5000 PM's in my inbox so go easy.

    Grundy doesn't have a mileage cap, but does have limits....
    1, no one under 25 may operate it.
    2, no timed events, autocross, or tracking. I'm ok with that.

    The agreed value was attractive to me as I had a total once that I had to just about sue over after the ASSessor came back with a settlement $.
    I never want to go through that battle again. I pick my price, I pay accordingly. Don't pay a premium only to be given some manheim auction price in the end should the unthinkable happen.

    Insurance with a MILEAGE cap?

    Now I've heard of everything.

    Insurance Company - "Sir, we have your policy ready. As soon as we get your money, you must not drive your car."

    Car Owner - "WTF?" "KMA!"

    My opinion...

    You may want to consider how you will use your car. I have less than $50 a month thru State Farm because I raised my deductible. I'm not going to track the car and only use it as a for pleasure driver so the risk factor is less imo. Plus, to replace a tail light is almost 500 so I guess you could have an insurance claim on very slight damage.

    You have most certainly just saved a bunch of money on your car insurance.

    Wow, it's even better than what I posted earlier today. I just received some paperwork from Geico on a policy change that had to do with the spelling of my name. It shows the new premium for my Viper is $207.10 every 6 months, full coverage, $500 ded.

    Coolness.

    I'm going to be changing to Grundy for insurance. For a little over $500 a year it will be for an agreed value, zero deduct., and I could drive the car anytime during the year that it is nice. I currently have Erie insurance and pay over $800 a year with $250 deduct. and have to park the car for three months on what is called a winter lay up. Plus, if something happened to the car i'm sure they would want to go by the book value... that is the main reason I plan to swith to Grundy is for the agreed value. Overall, I think the insurance on the Viper is pretty reasonable, especially for only being 31 years old.

    I have Grundy for both Vipers, agreed value of 60K on each.
    Pay about $750.00 per year on each. Geico wanted double that, with no agreed value.

    Thank you guys for all of your help. I wanted to learn all I could about my new obsession and stumbled upon this site and club. From the looks of it so far, 98% of the Viper community is made up of fantastic people that I can't wait to meet and join. I will continue to lurk about the site until I can make that post that all of you remember so fondly: "Bought my first Viper today!"

    I was formally offered my new job today that starts in January. It is a pay raise of 400% or so...the Viper is just months away!!
