Don’t settle for basic car insurance!
When you’re on a tight budget, it’s common to opt for the cheapest available car insurance policy. What most people don’t realize is that minimal-cost insurance will end up costing them much more if anything happens.
It’s important to make sure that both you and your vehicle are protected in the event of a collision. If you have a basic policy – which is the minimal policy required for all vehicle owners – and hit someone, the only thing that will be covered is the other vehicle’s damage. You won’t receive money for your own damage repair, a new vehicle if your car is totaled, or medical costs if you are hurt. An accident can leave many people stranded without a car and in debt simply because they lacked proper coverage on their auto insurance policy.
Don’t make the same mistake!
Andy turned 19 and moved to a new state. He bought a good used car and basic auto insurance. Two months later, on a rainy highway, an accident with a semi left his car totaled and sent him to the hospital for overnight monitoring. When he found out his insurance wasn’t going to pay a dime towards a new car or multiple medical expenses, he was left with bills he couldn’t pay going to collections, and no vehicle. He had no choice but to move back in with his parents and start working to pay off the debt and get a new car. Had he been covered with a better auto policy, he would be well on his way to recovery instead of having to start over.
It’s a simple choice that will benefit you for years to come. Even if nothing happens, the peace of mind is worth it. Ask for the details on your current policy, and upgrade from basic to comprehensive to make sure you’re protected.
