How can each company make the same claim?
Insurance companies are able to cherry pick for the type of driver they prefer to insure. An example of a driver they prefer might be between 25 and 40, has no tickets, and drives newer vehicles. Any driver who matches those parameters will get the preferred rates and as a result will probably save when they switch companies.
Potential insureds who do not match this ideal profile must pay higher prices and this can result in the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ads say “drivers who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save that kind of money. That’s why companies can truthfully advertise the way they do.
This illustrates why you absolutely need to get as many quotes as possible. Because you never know the company that will provide you with the cheapest Volkswagen Eos insurance rates.
Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are the usual coverages available from insurance companies.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” 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 2007 Volkswagen Eos.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses such as dental work, funeral costs, ambulance fees and prosthetic devices. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
Comprehensive insurance covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as theft, fire damage, a broken windshield and vandalism. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical expenses, emergency aid, legal defense fees and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
As you prepare to switch companies, never sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are a lot of situations where someone sacrificed physical damage coverage to discover at claim time that it was a big error on their part. The proper strategy is to purchase a proper amount of coverage at an affordable rate while not skimping on critical coverages.
