Vehicle Modifications

Vehicle modifications can increase the cost of your comprehensive car insurance. This is because insurance providers may deem the car:

  • More attractive to thieves - expensive wheels, a unique pain job, a high-tech stereo sound system are features that can be very costly, more common to be stolen and is hot on the black market.
  • More likely to be involved in an accident - cars are generally perceived as made more for safety than aesthetics so the more features that are replaced with better looking ones, it can reduce the manufacturera's safety standards.
