Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When buying the best insurance coverage coverage, there really is not a perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that might point out whether your personal situation could use an agent’s help.

  • Do I need added coverage for expensive stereo equipment?
  • Are rock chip repairs covered?
  • Do I have coverage when pulling a U-Haul trailer?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • Am I covered if I crash into my own garage door?
  • How can I get my company to pay me more for my totalled car?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my 2000 GMC Safari?
  • Is my cargo covered for damage or theft?
  • Am I covered by my spouse’s policy after a separation?
  • Do I need more liability coverage?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Insurance coverage advertising gotchas

Consumers can’t get away from ads for cheaper insurance coverage by companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive. All the ads make the same claim about how much you will save after switching your insurance coverage coverage to their company.

But how can every company charge you less for car insurance? It’s all in the numbers.

Different companies give the cheapest rates for a prospective insured that earns them the most money. For example, a desirable risk might have to be between 30 and 50, owns their home, and drives less than 7,500 miles a year. A driver who matches those parameters will qualify for the lowest prices and most likely will save some money.

Consumers who cannot meet these stringent criteria may be forced to pay higher premiums with the end result being the customer not purchasing. The ads say “people that switch” not “everyone that quotes” save the amount stated. That’s the way insurance companies can make those claims. Because each company has a different risk profile, drivers must compare quotes as often as possible. It’s not possible to predict which insurance companies will have the best car insurance rates for your profile.

Specifics of your insurance policy

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverages available from insurance companies.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as pain medications, doctor visits, rehabilitation expenses, hospital visits and X-ray expenses. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision coverage protection

This coverage covers damage to your Safari resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as driving through your garage door, crashing into a ditch, scraping a guard rail and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your GMC Safari.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Liability car insurance

Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers things such as medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like theft, fire damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hitting a bird. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
