WARREN, N.J., - Getting your collector car ready for spring just got easier.  The Chubb Group of Insurance Companies has produced an instructional video on preparing collector cars for driving after the winter’s hibernation. The video features two Chubb employees, who also are car enthusiasts, providing step-by-step instructions on how to ensure that cars that have been kept in storage during the winter are ready for the road again.

Any automobile that has been dormant for a month or more requires special attention before it is driven again. The video shows viewers how to replace the engine coolant; check the battery, lights and lug nuts; and search for fluid leaks and rodent damage, among other things.

“We have tapped into our expertise as a provider of classic car insurance for more than 40 years to produce this video,” said Jim Fiske, U.S. marketing manager for Chubb Personal Insurance. “Although we produced the video with the novice collector car owner in mind, more experienced car enthusiasts may appreciate some helpful reminders.”

This video is the first in a series of collector car videos that Chubb will produce this year. Other topics include preparing a collector car for a show or winter storage.
