Yes, The General insures cars with rebuilt titles. However, what they provide for you might vary depending on where you live.
Some states put more restrictions on the coverage you can get for formerly salvaged vehicles that have been restored, so you’ll want to check with The General to see what they can provide you and how much it will cost.
Some vehicles can get rebuilt titles after an insurance company deems the vehicle a total loss following a serious accident, vandalism, or disaster that leaves the car unusable. However, sometimes these cars can be repaired and restored to good driving condition, qualifying them for a rebuilt title.
But because of the car’s past, it presents a higher risk to insurance companies, and that risk can wreak havoc on your car insurance bill. That’s why, before buying from The General, you should get a quote from them and other providers, too. It doesn’t have to be a hassle—you can comparison shop for car insurance quotes online!
Even if you don’t want to switch providers, comparison shopping will help you find out if The General is giving you a reasonable quote compared to other insurance companies.
