I would prepare for a long wait. 3-4 weeks to start. Fire and Theft claims do need to be investigated (as the previous answers have said). It is a good thing you sent in all your paperwork already. That will help.



Lastly, I would call your theft and fire adjuster often after the 2 week. Your file will find its way to the top of the pile!!!

Simple answer is, As long as they want!



You can reduce this time by keeping on at them in writing, e-mail and phone.



Be polite but firm, keep asking when they will pay out, and if they have any steps to complete first then ask when they expect that step to be completed.



They will pay up as soon as possible because they want rid of the pressure from you.

If your particular state requires it and the vehicle is registered, then you probably need to insure it.
If you are string the car in a garage, you may want to insure it with a personal property insurance plan. Those are pretty cheap and only insure something to it's full value. Many car collectors have invested literally thousand upon thousands of dollars in their cars so they unsure them for their value in case of fire or other unforseen damages.

product liability insurance
