What To Know

It is our philosophy that we should not only help you with auto insurance quotes but we should also let you know what you must look for in your auto insurance plan. We always say that it is irresponsible to just pick an auto insurance plan without truly knowing what you want out of it. Let's discuss a few things that you need to look for in your auto insurance plan.


How Much Coverage Can You Get

The very first thing you must do is know by law how much coverage you are required to get. When you find this out then you will have a solid starting place for your auto insurance. It is pointless to get auto insurance quotes that are for less then the required amount of coverage. You are just wasting your time at this point.

Next, you need to look at all the options of coverage. Some plans may protect your car more then they protect you, and vice versa. Rarely does someone find the perfect plan for them that can fit their price range, so you must know that there will be some give and take. You must take all those basics we learned about into account. It may be irony, but it always seems like the aspect you need most is the one you forgot to cover on your plan. Each company is also willing to give you different amounts of coverage. Make it clear to each company when you get auto insurance quotes; you do not want to be under insured.

How Much Will You Be Charged/Have to Pay

You do not want to be underinsured, but you also do not want to over pay. This may sound like common knowledge but you must know how much you will be charged each month. You need to have a set amount of what you can afford, and what you are willing to pay each month. You need to have insurance, but you also must be able to afford it. Do not let them overcharge you. Make sure you know all the little fees and payments that may pop up as well.

Auto insurance quotes do not assure you that you will not be responsible for any payments at any time of an accident. Often times you will face a deductible. If you have a $500 deductible then you are responsible for the first $500, and the insurance company will cover the rest. Know how much the insurance company is willing to give you. Both parties must be responsible for the payments. You are paying them money to protect you, so you must know how much they are going to shell out when the time comes.

When Can You/Can't You Use Your Insurance

There may be restrictions on when you can file a claim. Know when each company is willing to help you and when they are going to refuse a claim. Your insurance is not a free pass to file claims at all times. There will be some requirements on claims, and you must be familiar with when this is.
