How do I insure a car for more than it is worth?

My car has a lot of modifications, and I don't agree with my insurance's suggestion for its market value. How do I insure a car for more than it is worth?

Answer
If you’ve spent a lot of money modifying your car, it can be frustrating when your provider’s suggested value doesn’t match up with what you’ve spent. The good news is you can insure a car for more than it is worth with agreed value car insurance.
Agreed value is an amount you and your insurance company both consent to insure the car for when the policy is purchased. This typically has a higher maximum payout than market value insurance, and as such, agreed value insurance is typically more expensive.
That said, it could be a worthy investment if you feel like you need the protection in case of an accident. This also won’t depreciate over time, so it could save you money in the long run.
