Mistakes Made When Buying Auto Insurance

1. Shopping for the Lowest Price Available
You get what you pay for compare not only price, but policy features as well. Not all auto insurance companies offer enhanced benefits for instance. Some companies offer superior claims handling, customer service guarantees, and roadside assistance. Assess all of the benefits included to see the true value you receive.
2. Underestimating the Value of Original Parts
When your car was built manufacturers carefully select each part. If your car has to be repaired, do you want the replacement parts to be less carefully selected? Be sure that your auto insurance company uses genuine Original replacement parts in collision repairs after accidents. Many companies use less expensive aftermarket parts that may decrease the value of your car, affect its appearance and jeopardize the warranty.
3. Having Insufficient Liability Coverage
Liability insurance helps protect you and your assets if you cause an injury to others or damage the property of others with your vehicle. However If you choose lower liability limits an accident that causes serious injury can result in medical bills and lost wages that could far exceed your coverage and leave you financially exposed. Make sure you’re fully protected.
4. Missing Out on Potential Discounts
There are many discounts available for instance: low-mileage driving, multiple car discounts, anti-theft devices, & many more. Be sure to ask which discounts are available for you.
