When it comes to choosing proper insurance coverage, there really is not a one size fits all plan. Every situation is different.
Here are some questions about coverages that can help discover if your situation might need an agent’s assistance.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and can provide invaluable advice.
Consumers constantly see and hear ads that promise big savings by Progressive, GEICO, Allstate and State Farm. All the companies say the same thing about savings if you change to their company.
How do they all claim to save you money?
All the different companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that is profitable for them. A good example of a profitable customer could be over the age of 40, is a homeowner, and chooses high deductibles. A driver who fits that profile is entitled to the best price and as a result will probably pay quite a bit less when switching companies.
Potential customers who don’t meet the requirements will be charged more money which usually ends up with business not being written. Company advertisements say “customers that switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that much money. This is how companies can truthfully advertise the savings. That is why you should compare as many rates as you can. You cannot predict which insurance coverage company will give you the biggest savings on Mazda MPV insurance.
Having a good grasp of insurance can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Comprehensive auto coverage
This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like hail damage, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things such as crashing into a ditch, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car, colliding with another moving vehicle and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Mazda MPV.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 that translate to a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for things such as emergency aid, medical expenses, pain and suffering, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses such as surgery, funeral costs, EMT expenses, chiropractic care and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
