About a year ago, I was planning to insure an antique car that was coming to me from the U.S. Unfortunately, it took the whole year to arrive and during that time, Dave at Zehr Insurance patiently stood by at the ready to service my need for coverage. Not only was his offer of coverage through the company the least expensive for my car, it was also the most flexible in how I could use the vehicle without restrictions normally associated with vintage vehicles. When it came time for the actual paperwork to be completed, Zehr, through Dave, took care of all the contacts with my builder of the car and made the entire process a real pleasure to be involved with. While other companies were most open to my requests for information, Zehr, in my opinion, went beyond the ordinary in setting up this account. Highly to be recommended.

I have been insuring my Pro Street 67′ Camaro with Zehr Insurance for a little over a year now. When I first bought my classic car, I wasn’t sure which brokerage would suit my needs best, considering it’s not a typical car. After speaking with Dave, my broker, I felt completely comfortable in Zehr’s hands. His professionalism, customer service, experience with high end vehicles and knowledge has put my mind at ease. They’re always there for me whenever I have an inquiry regarding to my policy. I feel that my car deserves the best, and I have given it the best by insuring it with Zehr Insurance.

For about three and half years I have been restoring my 1973 Barracuda and now it is ready for the road. My neighbor had three pamphlets of antique insurance companies including one which belonged to Zehr. When I had the car appraised, the appraiser mentioned Zehr and advised to call Gaurav Sharma. When I called Gaurav to talk to him about the car he was very friendly and helpful. Zehr rates were good and comparable with the other companies but I decided to go with Zehr as the office is close enough to go to and it is in Mopar country- New Hamburg.  Gaurav was able to get me the insurance quickly through e-mail and over the phone which was great. Thanks to Zehr for helping me get my car back on the road!
