Grundy insurance renewal

FYI: I received a mailing that my Grundy insurance on my 34 had expired. I never received a renewal notice to renew the policy. I called the several phone numbers to renew my policy over three days and was on hold for over an hour multiple times. I finally got through to a rep and told her I wanted to renew the policy. The new premium was $120 more than last year. I asked what the reason was and she said that the declared value had been raised from $50K to $61.5K. I told her I did not want the declared value that high and to lower it back down to $50K. I then asked why I did not receive a renewal notice. She said that Philadelphia Insurance who was handling the claims for Grundy is no longer doing them and that a lot of renewal notices were not mailed out and that is why the phones have been so busy.

Just FYI
Vince

Vince - I had read that PHY and Grundy had a falling out (don't recall why) so rattled their cage a few weeks before renewal. Mine went up only $10 for 10K more so I let it 'hang' and it's still only $273 a year for $41.5K declared value and getting a bit closer to what I had spent to build it

My neighbor went through the same thing, pissed him off so badly he's canceled and went through another company. HOURS on the phone, getting cut off, nothing getting resolved.

I'm going through flaming hoops trying to insure my little FL crackerbox I keep down there. No one wants to write a policy because of the hurricanes. I can sort of understand that, but I would think a specialty auto insurance company would be all too glad to write paper for a collector car. Surely business isn't THAT good, is it?

They are too restrictive for my use - and their national operations headquarters is less then 5 miles from me so we do have several agents locally but could not give me a decent policy where I wasn't controlled on my car usage
