After you complete the form, the company’s rating system will order your credit score and driving record and quotes a price determined by many factors.

Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are the normal coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Liability car insurance – Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability can pay for claims such as loss of income, medical services and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive auto coverage – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like damage from flooding, hail damage and hitting a deer. The most a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for expenses for things like dental work, funeral costs, X-ray expenses and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Honda Ridgeline.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Collision – This coverage pays for damage to your Ridgeline resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things like driving through your garage door, rolling your car, crashing into a building, colliding with a tree and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
