Actual Cash Value
To determine the Actual Cash Value (ACV) of your vehicle, find the current market value on the Kelley Blue Book or NADA Guide. (For modified or converted vehicles, please contact us for special approval). It is imperative that a realistic ACV of the vehicle is stated on your insurance policy. In case of a total loss, Chubb Seguros will determine the current market value of the vehicle according to the policy Terms and Conditions. Underinsuring a vehicle will result in being paid less than the market value of the vehicle. In the case of over insuring any vehicle, the insurer has the right to adjust the Actual Cash Value to reflect the current market value.
