Learning about specific coverages of insurance can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the usual coverages offered by insurance companies.
Collision – This coverage covers damage to your Cooper Paceman caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car, colliding with another moving vehicle, rolling your car and crashing into a ditch. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as hail damage, rock chips in glass, theft, damage from a tornado or hurricane and fire damage. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Coverage for liability – This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage pays for things like repair costs for stationary objects, medical services, pain and suffering, funeral expenses and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your MINI Cooper Paceman.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Medical expense insurance – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills such as prosthetic devices, nursing services, chiropractic care, ambulance fees and EMT expenses. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Cheaper auto insurance is possible on the web and from local agencies, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance companies may not have internet price quotes and many times these smaller companies only sell through independent agencies.
In this article, we presented quite a bit of information on how to save on 2015 MINI Cooper Paceman insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more rate quotes you have, the better likelihood of getting the cheapest insurance coverage. You may even discover the biggest savings come from an unexpected company. These companies may only write in your state and offer lower premium rates than their larger competitors like State Farm or Progressive.
