Palm Beach, Fla. – March 26, 2019 – Barrett-Jackson’s Endorsed Insurance Program will celebrate its 10-year anniversary during the 17th Annual Palm Beach Auction from April 11-13, 2019, at the South Florida Fairgrounds. Introduced in 2009, Barrett-Jackson’s best-in-class Endorsed Collector Car Insurance expanded to include policies for homes, daily drivers, watercraft, aircraft, motorhomes, jewelry, memorabilia, weapons, fine art and more.
“Ten years ago, I discovered AIG Private Client Group while searching for a better solution for my own insurance needs,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Not only did AIG offer great coverage at a tremendous value, the company offered me an opportunity to bring all of my assets under one umbrella policy. And their high level of service was amazing. We began discussing a possible collaboration for Barrett-Jackson customers, who deserve this high level of protection and service. Now 10 years later, the program has grown incredibly.”
The Barrett-Jackson Endorsed Insurance Program includes several insurance providers who meet each client’s unique needs, with AIG Private Client Group serving as the primary carrier. The program is managed through Jim Schwarzkopf, co-founder of the Program and Chief Sales Officer at BridgePoint Risk Management, formerly TDC Risk Management. Headquartered in Maumee, Ohio, BridgePoint is geographically positioned to serve its clientele with additional satellite offices in Greenwich, Naples, Palm Beach and Phoenix, and representatives coast to coast. The company is licensed in all 50 states and also has international capability.
“This insurance program is available to anyone, regardless of where they purchased their collector vehicle,” said Schwarzkopf. “Of course, we also have the ability to wrap collector car insurance into a policy that covers virtually every aspect of an individual’s insurance needs. We’re especially proud of the high-caliber concierge service we provide. If it’s important to our clients, it’s important to us.”
Through AIG, a collector car policy includes up to 150 percent Agreed Value at the time of a total loss, meaning market appreciation will be considered. Diminished Value is also included, which takes into consideration market depreciation after a partial loss if the vehicle losses value. Unlimited roadside and towing, automatic 90-day coverage for physical damage/30-day automatic coverage for liability, client’s choice of repair facility, first right to buy back the salvage and worldwide coverage territory round out the outstanding policy offerings from AIG Private Client Group.
