-Liability is the most important type of insurance and is required by state law. It covers costs associated with property damages or bodily injury caused by you or a member of your family in an accident.
-Collision insurance will pay for the repairs if your car is damaged in an accident.
-Comprehensive insurance pays for damage to your car from factors other than collisions, such as damage from fire or vandalism.
-Uninsured motorist coverage protects you if you are ever in an accident caused by an uninsured driver. It may also protect you against a hit-and-run.
-Personal Injury Protection (PIP) pays medical expenses and lost wages for you and your passengers if you are injured in an accident. If PIP is not required in your state, and you have good health and disability insurance, you can skip purchasing this type of protection or just get the minimum coverage.
-Medical payments (MedPay) will guarantee immediate medical payments regardless of who is at fault. It also covers you and members of your household in any accident involving an automobile, even if you are walking or riding a bicycle.
-No-fault insurance is required in many states. With no-fault, your insurance company would cover your expenses in an accident regardless of who was at fault. Other drivers would be covered by their own policies. This type of insurance eliminates the need for accident victims to establish another’s liability in a lawsuit.
-Ask your insurance company about discounts. You may be eligible for discounts for being a safe driver, good student, or college graduate.
-Remember, your credit matters. Car insurance companies take your credit rating into account when creating a policy for you. Insurance companies view credit reports as predictors of risk: if you’re responsible with your finances, you’ll be responsible with your car.
-Shop around. Web sites like Insurance.com and Esurance.com let you comparison shop major auto insurance providers to find the best policy for you.
I've got a question. Is it necessary to find an insurance if i get a second hand car? Or if not, they will not sell a used car? Because if I purchased a second hand car today, i wouldn't be driving it for about 4 months. I'll be keeping the car in my house garage and just fix on it. Right now I have a rented car and i'm returning it in next couple of months.I don't wish to pay for another car insurance that I wouldn't be using for the next 4 months.
A lot of the time people don't know what kind of coverage they need which is why they may be wasting money on certain factors. For example, a really, really old car doesn't necessarily need collision if the owner doesn't feel it's essential. Knowing what kind of insurance your car needs will help your wallet.
This is great article. I think people should read as much as the can on insurance before choosing. Try to get at least 5 quotes before you choose.
