I had never heard about a 'declared value policy,' but why not. As I said earlier, if you pay enough, someone will offer insurance.GerryAZ wrote: As far as insurance is concerned if you spend the money for a new battery--look in to a declared value policy. In my case, the 2011 was totaled a little over a year after the battery was replaced. Since the crash was not my fault, I was able to argue with the other driver's insurance company to get at least some reimbursement above the book value by arguing that it was worth mor than others in my climate because the battery had been replaced.
However, am I correct in saying that it is only relevant to comp/collision claims ?
