  • Insurance for the C8

    Yes, its me again. I took a VIN off a 2021 C8 I saw for sale and sent it to my insurance lady. She quoted me $1750 a year. Sound about right? I'm sure by the time mine gets here, the rates will go up.
    I told her it would have VERY low miles on it as I will only drive around town freaking out my neighbors

    I have mine with the same company I have my home insurance and pay less than half that.

      Insurance rates depend on many factors. With my 2020 C8 insured through Geico, they list 8 discounts which include multi-car and safe-driver (the wife disagrees with that one - I plead the 5th).

      I'm also in a red state (Indiana), in a laid-back and low crime region. I pay $560/year for full coverage.

        That's about what I pay on my USAA insurance. It is no higher than a similar car of it's value. But then I am an old guy with a pretty clean record.

          One’s driving record is critical in an insurance company issuing you a rate for a sports car especially. As it where one lives (crime or not), age, even ones FICO score. I am paying $59/month from State Farm and have outstanding coverage — though as noted above I have many, many other major insurance policies with them. In fact I have been with State Farm since 1965.

            Thanks for your reply's. When the time comes, I will shop for sure. I've had my home and vehicle's covered by this group since I bought my first car in 1976. It should be free !!!

              I'll probably go with Hagerty since I have my classic cars with them and the C8 will not be a daily driver. Last time I checked Hagerty will insure new Corvettes and Camaros as they consider them "future classics".
              They don't have an annual mileage restriction, but do require another vehicle (daily driver) be insured through another company. They prefer that the vehicle be stored in garage at your residence as well.
              I haven't checked the rates yet as I'm not sure when I will get a car, but for my 3 MG's it's a little over $400 a year for full coverage.

                USAA will charge me $1442 per year to add my incoming C8 to my policy in addition to the two existing cars. I have all of my policies through them, including an umbrella policy that covers most of the liability portion of car insurance. My record is spotless and I have a zillion discounts as part of this. The reason mine is so much higher than other posters above is that I am in California, San Jose to be specific.

                  I pay $1476 a year or ($123 a month) with Farmers Insurance and that's with a clean record, multi-car, multi-discount. I was with Statefarm previously and this was the best rate for me after shopping around.

                    I had my 4 collector cars with Hagerty. When I picked up the new 2021, I had the NCM quote the comparable insurance. They significantly beat Hagerty, so I am now with NCM for all 5 cars including a 6,000 mile annual plan for the C8 (abt $1,500/yr for all 5). For the NCM insurance, unused miles roll over to the next year.

                      Thanks 69385vette for your specific information. Many MECF members have found the NCM insurance program works excellently fo them, quite a few saving big money as you are:

                        I have high liability limits and absolute top notch coverage in PA with full tort coverage and my 2021 C8 premium is $464 per year. There are many many factors (Erie Insurance--my carrier--has told me there are over 700 factors considered in what my premium is. I have a number of other cars (I believe a total of 7) on my policy plus homeowners and business policies with my insurance company.

                          It's impossible to compare rates from one person in one location to another person in a different place. The formulas insurance companies use have dozens of factors, and every company weighs them differently. Obvious things like your driving record, accident history, age and where you live, but also not obvious things like your credit rating, job stability, whether you're married, what other cars you own, and more. One company may be cheaper for driver A in location X, while a different company is cheaper for driver B in location Y.

                          I pay just over half of that for three cars with Erie insurance.

                          All the big companies have online tools to get quotes. The only way to find the best rate for YOU is to get quotes from a bunch of companies. If you've been with the same company for years, you're probably paying too much.

                          Also, rates aren't the only thing that matters. Low premiums don't do you much good if the company refuses to pay claims. Here's a list of highly rated companies for customer service:

                            700 is an impressive number! I Googled it and found 25 different factors so I'm curious what sort of other information your insurer collects on you?

                              for the OP, that seems high. I will be at $580/yr with State Farm when I pick mine up. But as others have said different circumstances................. I am 59, no tickets in about 20 years or so (I have no idea how I have gone that long). full coverage, no deductible on comprehensive, $500 deduct on collision. I have also been with them for 43 years, so I get multi-car, accident free, and other discounts. so many things go into determining the rate, obviously.

                              I can tell you that the rate on my C8 is only $48/yr more than my 2018 Honda Type R was.
