How much does it cost to insure a car with a salvage title?

I've rebuilt a car that previously had a salvage title, and it just passed safety inspections. However, I've heard that insuring a salvage title car is difficult. I've worked really hard at restoring it to its former glory—so is there any way to get insurance for it? And how much will it cost?

“Congratulations—rebuilding a totaled car is a big project, and you should be proud for getting it roadworthy again! It is true that cars with salvage titles are notoriously hard to insure because of the damage done to the vehicle, and the cost may vary.
However, you’re in luck—if your car passed safety inspections, and if you have valid registration, you can get a rebuilt title from the DMV. This will make it both insurable and legal to drive on the road.
Many providers do only offer liability insurance for rebuilt titles, but some do offer collision coverage, too!
If you want to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible on the maximum amount of coverage you can get, try using Jerry! We’ll get you multiple customized quotes from different top-of-the-line providers so that all you have to do is to pick the plan that works best for you.

Kudos again on completing such a tough project, and best of luck with insurance shopping!”
