In addition to standard auto coverage, we also offer policies for the following:

Personal Auto Insurance

While anyone can sell you an Auto policy over the internet, we are available to answer your questions in person, by email, or with a quick phone call that doesn’t require you to wander through a phone tree. We are here to put together the coverage you need to protect your vehicle, your family, and your ability to get to work. Most of our carriers offer significant discounts when you place both your home and auto with them – let us quote both so we can offer the most comprehensive package of coverage at the best price!

Classic Car Insurance

Since 1954, Barton Insurance has been helping New Hampshire and Vermont drivers maintain affordable and consistent auto insurance. Our knowledge of classic cars has helped keep us going ever since. In order to effectively protect your car, it is important to understand some of the insurance differentials between classic and modern cars.

Both classic and modern cars have specific values attached to them. Contrary to modern cars, in which the value is determined by subtracting yearly depreciation from the original price, classic cars are valued differently. When purchasing auto insurance, there is an agreed value put in place. This value is a paid guarantee in the event of a total loss. Unlike modern car insurance, there are no depreciation to consider.

On average, New Hampshire residents with classic car insurance pay 60 percent less than those with standard auto insurance. This reduced rate does come with a set of certain rules. These limitations can vary but generally involve an age requirement as well as a yearly mileage restriction. For additional information about these limitations, please contact one of our agents

New Hampshire SR-22

The Department of Motor Vehicles in New Hampshire frequently requires individuals to file a proof of insurance form (SR-22). At Barton Insurance, we can help ensure that your SR-22 is properly filled out and filed. Some of the instances in which filing an SR-22 would be required include the following:

  • Conviction for Driving While Intoxicated
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Conduct after an accident
  • Reckless operation (2nd offense)

For additional information regarding specific SR-22 requirements, please visit the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles website.

We recommend Personal Umbrella Insurance for all our clients

In the event of a serious claim, the liability limits on your home or auto policy may not be enough. We live in a litigious society with medical costs constantly increasing. An Umbrella policy can protect your assets and livelihood from confiscation in the event of a large judgment against you by providing liability limits beyond what you have on your home and auto policies. A $1,000,000 umbrella policy can cost as little as $150 per year.

Our companies offer a variety of optional coverages that may or may not be appropriate for you. Call us to discuss your needs and get a quote, or fill out the form at the top of this page to get an instant online quote. You will get a response from one of our agents within one business day.
